Good middle of the road phone

Reviewed on Friday March 24, 2017 by , Canada
I've had my Rugby phone for about 3 years now. I use it mainly for work. I'm a mobile mechanic. This phone is all I really need. I've not had any problems with it. Great battery life, camera is good enough for my needs. If I need to take some macro pics of engine parts I can do so and I'm happy with the results. There are times when it can feel like the performance is a little slow, but I've never had it crash on me, although I did have a period where the Touchwiz was playing up. Just re-formatted the phone and was good to go for another year. Don't expect Galaxy S7 performance cos it just won't happen, but if you're realistic in your expectations and you don't require a whole bunch of bells and whistles then this phone may very well be a good choice.

Fait pour travailler dur

Reviewed on Monday October 31, 2016 by , Quebec
Je travail dans des conditions plutôt difficile pour un téléphone et après 3 ans, il fonctionne toujours. L'écran est très peu éraflé et il a résister à des impacts et des pressions fortes. Je le recommande à qui a besoin d'un téléphone résistant. Par contre, il faut savoir gérer la mémoire du téléphone, parce que trop d'applications installé cause des problèmes.

Ce téléphone est une vidange

Être samsung, je serais gêné d'avoir mit mon nom sur ce produit. Il est très résistant à l'extérieur mais aucune puissance à l'inté ne compte plus les minutes de ma vie ou jai du faire des reboots ou attendre que l'application réponde.

Best Phone Ever

Reviewed on Tuesday November 4, 2014 by , Saskatchewan
I've had this phone for just about two years. I've droped it countless times, its been droven over once in wet slushy snow and it sat there for at least and an hour, its fallen off of the top of a car going 60km and its been dropped in mud, it still works like the day I bought It. The screen hasn't broken once but dose have a few scraches in it. This is most likely the strongest phone out there. I recommend this phone to anyone who works outside.
The only thing I dislike about this phone is that it can be very slow somtimes.

I needed a phone that could handle the Wet / Rough environment I work in. I live on the west coast of Canada (80inch rain a year) I am a contractor working in the rain and on a ladders.
My rugby has stood up to the challenge, whatever it maybe. I have dropped it many time on to concrete from 6+ feet and and have soked it more times then I can count. I can also give it to my 2 year old, and not have to worry about him braking it :)
The only 2 issues I have with it are:
1. Low memory (5gb)and ram (800mb)
2. The back comes off when I drop it, making it not water proof

Th phone is amazing
(my wife offen says "good thing you have a ruby!)
This phone has saved me $ cause I can't seem to wreck it ;)

Rugby LTE works for me!

Reviewed on Wednesday July 3, 2013 by , Winnipeg MB
This is my second Rugby. The first was the flip phone. Since I had the flip for 3 years with no problem whatsoever, I did not hesitate to purchase the Rugby LTE. I have had it for over a month and do not regret purchasing it. It looks good, feels great in your hand, the screen is vivid and the os is snappy enough.
One thing that I count as priority #1 with these larger screen smart phones is battery life. Charging a cell each and every day is not what I would consider a fun time. With light to medium use, my Rugby LTE gives me 3 to 4 days out of a charge. That is great. I certainly recommend this phone to everyone.

Great choice

I have owned the "rugby" for about a month now. It is my first smartphone moving from a flip phone previously.
I required a rugged phone that would stand up to punishment as I work in maintenance and find myself in wet and dirty enviroments regularly.
I am pleased with the "Rugby" as I dropped it twice on the first day and it still works fine.
The battery with mild to normal usage last's me almost three days without a recharge.
It may not have all the bells and whistles of the higher end phones but I have no need for them at this point.
In my opinion if you need a smart phone that can stand up to the normal bumps and bangs of a rough lifestyle, this is your phone.
