But it can still make standard calls, send SMS, and receive GPS data, while decently waterproof and durable. And cheap used, if the durability wasn't enough.
Also runs old versions of OruxMaps with the map data on the microsd. Oh and there's a few old apps that'll send its location out as SMS periodically if that's what you need.

aDwise, 10 Jan 2018Dry it 3 days in hot box, put in rise, batery take outlel my phone is smashed in pieces by then:D Late comment
I remember seeing this phone a long time ago, and here it was referred to "Samsung Galaxy X"
Cant use it, memory full, bought sd card, memory still full. Factory reset & phone perfect until went on internet & back to square one! I tjink ill bin it!
My first smartphone. I was a uncareful kid so the water and dust resistance was a major selling point. Its really difficult to understand samsung as a company. The xcover phones are good, but they are dumbed down with hardware thats 3 years behind the current midrange phones. This is a issue with all xcovers. It wasnt so bad with the first one but 2 and 3 are years behind.
Water resistance is a good thing tho, angry birds while under the shower!

if only the Android could be upgraded and the SD micro card would work better with apps. I'd never change for any other phone then. Biking, moto-crossing, canoeing and just using it in pouring rain when everyone at the bus stop tries to protect their fancy i-phones from getting ruined. This has served me longtime and it will be my 2nd phone for my outdoor activities also in the future.

I have a problem with my XCover. My dad gave it to me as my phone broke and i knew i had water resistance. So i tried it, and it worked. But one time i forgot to close the back cover all the way and a little bit of water got in. I let it dry for a week. It was ok for 10 weeks and then i had this strange glitch. My battery was drained completely and i put it charge. After 10 minutes i saw the screen that you would normally have when your phone was off and it was charging but there was a triangle in blue color and it had a battery simbol in it but it had been crossed.And if i tried to turn it on it would boot but when it booted into the os it shutdown. Can anyone help me?
P.S The battery has been changed one time.
i used this phone once, and it was really nice
rudebwai, 22 Jul 2015on the specification it says for 30minutes not 33minutes... you should learn to read more clearlyLol,but what matters 3 minutes in 10 cm of water
