Choosing Samsung Rugged
If you need a smartphone that is tough enough to survive the abuse of working outdoors or have a job where you are constantly on the move in extreme conditions, the Samsung Galaxy XCover 4 is a great option to consider. At a very cost-effective price point, it has a rugged design, non-slip finish and is dust- and water resistant.
The water resistance rating of IP68 means it is water resistant in up to 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes! The battery is good for 11 hours of internet usage or 17 hours of talk time. The battery is also removable and easy to replace if necessary. The device carries a US military MIL-STD-810G rating, meaning it should be able to withstand a four-foot drop onto 1-inch of plywood, on top of concrete.
Easy for workers
The Galaxy XCover 4 comes with NFC integration, which is one of the reasons why we recommend it for use with our mpro5 app. The phone is great for field workers: the touch screen works with gloves on and has an “Active Key” button on the side that gives users access to favourite apps. The button can be configured to act as a switch for a torch light or to instantly open the camera. At the bottom of the screen are three physical buttons. While this may seem odd in a world where most smartphones move away from physical buttons, it makes navigation easier while wearing protective gloves. The phone does not have a fingerprint scanner.
More Features of the Samsung XCover 4
The 5-inch screen is bigger than previous models, yet small enough to comfortably hold in one hand. It features a 13MP primary camera, as well as a 5MP selfie shooter.
Samsung’s mobile device management system called Knox (read more about it here) comes as standard.
The available memory of 16GB can be increased to 256GB by adding a MicroSD card. Contact us if you would like a competitive quote to supply your workforce with the Samsung Galaxy XCover 4.
