Are you a frontline worker? Maybe you\u2019re equipping employees with a communication device, which means the best smartphone isn\u2019t necessarily the most powerful; more like the best rugged smartphone. One can argue it\u2019s the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro. While it looks like a typical Galaxy model, it\u2019s built to handle so much more.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Samsung Galaxy Xcover Pro\r\nThe Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro is the kind of buddy you want when you\u2019re heading into dangerous settings. Thanks to its IP68 ingress rating and MIL-STD-810G certification, it\u2019s built to handle damage.\r\n\r\nOverall Performance\r\nThe Galaxy XCover Pro Samsung isn\u2019t the most powerful of Samsung\u2019s; it\u2019s quite average. This can be seen by its chipset, the Exynos 9611 and 4GB of RAM. It\u2019s the equivalent to a Snapdragon 712, but goes toe-to-toe with the Doogee S95 Pro\u2019s Helio P90. It\u2019s mid-range for the sake of function, speed, and price. Being 25-megapixels, you\u2019d think the main camera would pack more of a punch. However, you can get the Samsung Galaxy S10e if you wish to get a Samsung with better camera quality. Colors are fairly muted, like the life was sucked out of them, and contrast is lackluster. It\u2019s good enough to capture moments, but nothing more.\r\nBattery Life\r\nThe Ulefone Armor 7 is the king of battery life\u2014but the XCover Pro does a swell job, too. With the right settings you can have an all-day charge. Most importantly, you can take the battery out. You might not have realized, but it\u2019s something you rarely get to do with smartphones these days, which means you can always bring a spare.\r\nDisplay\r\nLike the pictures it takes, the XCover Pro doesn\u2019t have a very vibrant display. It\u2019s rocking a nice 6.3-inch display size and resolution of 2340x1080, so it\u2019s at least FHD+. It comes with Android 10 and One UI, which is by far one of the cleanest versions of Android you can have. More importantly, if you\u2019re wearing gloves or the screen is wet, Glove Mode keeps its functions working.\r\nDurability\r\nHere, above all else, is where the XCover excels the most. While the Unihertz Atom and XCover Pro are both IP68, the Samsung can take more of a beating thanks to its MIL-STD-810G certification. It\u2019s also fitted with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, just behind Gorilla Glass 6 in durability.\r\nValue\r\nWith a mid-range chipset and average camera, who exactly is the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro for? Employees, of course. There\u2019s plenty of power here for it to be a functioning device, but more importantly it can withstand a lot of damage. And that\u2019s where the value is. This is especially true considering one of its buttons can be used to map a walkie talkie function.\r\nSamsung Galaxy Xcover Pro Wrap Up\r\nFor the average person, the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro isn\u2019t going to be appealing. Its performance is too gimped. IP68 and MIL-STD-810G compliant, it\u2019s one tough phone though, and can be used when wet or wearing gloves. That alone should tell you who the XCover Pro is for: frontline workers in construction or other dangerous professions.
