Samsung Solid Extreme B2100 review

 

It's harder than most and can survive underwater - but is it right for you?

Waterproofing ; Tough build quality ; Decent music player ; MicroSD card support ; Excellent call quality

No 3G ; Low quality 1.3-megapixel camera ; Basic Wap browser ; Rubbery keypad ; No USB cable or memory card supplied

Samsung Solid Extreme B2100

 

Designed for outdoor durability, what does Sandra think of the Samsung Solid Extreme B2100?

The backplate fits very snugly and can only be removed by using a coin, screwdriver or something similar to unlock it. I found a fingernail was not tough enough for this job.

Samsung B2100 Preview

 

The Samsung B2100 isn't for the fashionistas among us - with its rugged look and durable features it's meant for the thrill-seekers who'll really put it through its paces. A slim handset, it won't get…

Samsung B2100 Review

 

"The small 1.7-inch screen shouldn't be too bad for text messaging but video playback might be a bit of a strain."

While the Samsung B2100's 1.3-megapixel camera won't win you any photography awards, it's better than no camera at all and the built-in music player means you can use it as an mp3 player as well. The small 1.7-inch screen shouldn't be too bad for text...

Samsung B2100

 

This is an attractive phone in an ‘outdoors' kind of way, makes me think of camping and hikes across mountain ranges and so is the perfect look for people who consider themselves to be the outdoors sort anyway. The tough rubberises housing makes it...

Other features include a MP3 player, FM radio, basic web browsing, 1.3 mega pixel camera and more. It certainly isn’t top end features but all the essentials are there and are the sort to appeal to the target audience of the Samsung B2100.

Samsung GT-B2100 Solid Extreme rugged phone

 

Ideal for outdoorsy rough stuff and bad weather, with the limited multimedia features taking a back seat

If you're after a mobile for high-end functionality, the Samsung Solid Extreme won't be for you. It has a limited feature set, and lacks the multimedia firepower and gadgetry of typical mid-tier 3G mobiles. It's not exactly going to swing it on the...

Samsung Solid Extreme B2100 review

 

Rocking a mobile phone that's a refection of rugged manliness isn't something that's too becoming. Especially when us gadget fans are such fey types. But following the double–hard Land Rover S1 and rock solid Nokia 3720, the Samsung Solid Extreme B2100...

Long battery life, SOS mode

Lack of features, not as solid as its rivals

A decent rugged phone, but not nearly as tough as its rivals

Samsung B2100 review

 

The sturdy, waterproof Samsung B2100 Xplorer is a rugged and shockproof Samsung mobile phone, in addition to the M110 and B2700. Besides these features, the Samsung B2100 features an FM radio, Bluetooth functionality, 1.3 megapixel digital camera, and...

Samsung B2100

 

Samsung\'s B2100 ticks all the rugged boxes, but that\'s about it.

Submersible in 1m water, excellent battery life, dust and shock resistant, flashlight

No GPS or any other useful features
