    Samsung X Cover 4

    So works getting all anal about personnel use of work phones and loading in some fancy security software that blocks everything useful so need to get my own phone.

    I don't use a phone much outside of work so don't need anything fancy but would like something that can take a few knocks, is waterproof and has a good battery.

    Anybody using the Samsung X Cover? How do you rate it? Should I spend a bit more on tough phone like a Blackview?

    I've got one. Seems to last well, meant to be waterproof and I have dropped it (argh) and it has done ok. Screen still fine
    I got it as it was the closest to my old S4. The rest were either too dear or just not what I was after.
    Always meant to get one of these, just haven't got there yet. Then I would be happy with it

    I have one. It's the only phone that's lasted me longer than a couple of months (farming) I have had iPhones and Galaxys and all manner of fancy phones in life proof cases etc and managed to kill every one of them pretty quickly. In fact I got a new galaxy and its buggered despite having a case on it so I dug the old x cover out of the drawer and I'm using it again right now, it doesn't even have a cover on it, has been dropped heaps including off vehicle roofs, run over by 600 cows and trampled into the mud, the screen finally broke and since then it's been exposed to plenty of water but still goes fine.

    We use them at work. I can attest to them being waterproof, mine has spent over 30 min in 40 cm of water more than once. I rinse the mud off it semi regularly as I end up answering it with muddy hands. One workmate didn't have a cover and the screen cracked quite severely when dropped. Mine has a simple rubberized case and has survived repeated drops. Reasonable battery life. Reasonable phone for the price.

    Delighted with mine. Wife annoyed that it's better than her Galaxy for half the price.Name:  561905_424559947604686_2019002102_n.jpg

    I have one for work, not as robust/waterproof as my CATs60 but goes alright, most annoying thing is the back button is on opposite sides on each of them.

    I have the older x 3 still going strong, gets dropped, gets wet. sits in a dusty environment, still goes well. I would go to the newer model when it dies. Run it for about 3 years.

    I run my own phone so I don’t get questioned about private use, but if I was you I’d turn it of at the end of your shift and only turn it on again the next day.
