The Samsung Rugby Smart joins AT&T's lineup as a rugged smartphone, made to withstand tough falls and rough use. It is water, dust, shock, and temperature proof, IP 67.00 certified, and MIL-STD-810 certified. Basically, it should be able to withstand pretty much anything you put it through. But is it really as durable as Samsung says it is? That's what you're going to find out the answer to in this review. Sydney has put the Rugby Smart through several durability tests and shows you the results. How did the Rugby Smart hold up?
Besides being a rugged phone, the Rugby Smart is actually a well-equipped smartphone with a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.4 GHz Snapdragon processor, and HSPA+ connectivity. It may not be a superphone, but it will definitely offer smooth performance with minor hiccups. The camera captures HD video, but video and audio quality was disappointing. Overall, it's a reliable phone for those with an active lifestyle.
