Samsung - B2700

The B2700 offers a fair range of rugged features that might endear it to outdoors types. Its biggest lures are the long battery life and tough casing, though there are significant compromises in other areas.

Samsung B2700

 

A ruggedised, water and dust proof phone with a great price tag.

Rugged casing, IP54 water and dust resistant, 3G capable, flashlight, value for money

Not really stylish, five-way navigational pad is a little small, no 3.5mm headphone jack

It may not look the part, but the B2700 is certainly an impressive handset if you are after a mobile phone that can take a beating. At this price, it's great value.
