Samsung Galaxy Pro review


Cheap as chips Android with a QWERTY keyboard

Great keyboard ; Good music player and radio ; Surprisingly good camera ; Low price ; Good media streaming

Small, low-resolution screen ; Only Android 2.2 ; Slightly wide for small hands ; No headphones in box

Samsung is like the little engine that could. It just keeps on going. Sometimes it produces high-end, market-leading smartphones such as the stupendous Galaxy S II, sometimes it plays a safer game, attacking the middle of the road as with the likes of...

Samsung Galaxy Pro review


Samsung's Galaxy range continues to pull in the punters, and the Galaxy S2 is undeniably one of the most sought-after phones on the planet right now. However, as if to prove that not everything the Korean company touches turns to gold, we've been given...

Good keypad

Poor screen, Android 2.2, Weak processor

A deeply misguided attempt to pander to the BlackBerry crowd, the Galaxy Pro is best left alone

Samsung Galaxy Pro review


Samsung extends its Galaxy brand of Android smartphones with a keyboard-equipped Blackberry lookalike, but Julian Prokaza is far from impressed. Read on to find out why.

The Samsung Galaxy Pro is cheap, but not particularly cheerful and while it’s probably adequate for someone who’s never used a smartphone before and wants the comfort of a physical keyboard, more sophisticated users should steer clear.

Samsung Galaxy Pro Android phone (preview)


Samsung Galaxy Pro preview: Samsung targets business professionals with the BlackBerry-like Galaxy Pro Android smartphone

Full QWERTY keyboard ; Capacitive touchscreen ; 512MB RAM

Small 2.8in touchscreen ; No word on 2.3 Gingerbread Android update

The Samsung Galaxy Pro is targeted at business professionals who prefer typing on a keyboard rather than a touchscreen, but would still like a touchscreen for general input.

Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro Review


It's not a looker, but the Rugby Pro is a durable AT&T phone at a low $100 price. Whether you're dropping it in water or on concrete, it will boot back up and do its job.

The $100 Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro is a capable rugged smartphone for a low price. It may catch the eye of people who need a device that can withstand some rough and tumble conditions. And if you’re on the clumsy side and keep dropping and breaking your...

Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro (AT&T)


Your average smartphone is about as durable as a china doll. Drop it once while fumbling with your keys, and your phone's chassis will crack and its screen will shatter. And don't even try getting it wet. The $99 Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro from AT&T is...

Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro (AT&T)


Choosing a smartphone can be tough, especially when you're choosing a tough smartphone—there just aren't that many options available. AT&T makes it easy with the $99.99 Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro, the best rugged smartphone we've tested. It has a tough...

Rugged build. Fast processor and LTE data speeds. Good battery life

Back cover came loose when phone was dropped in our tests

With a tough build, a powerful processor, and a fast processor and LTE data speeds, the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro is our top choice for rugged smartphones.

Samsung Rugby Pro review:


Samsung's Rugby Pro is a buddy story between AT&T and a durable Samsung-made Android 4.0 phone. It may look tough on the outside, but there's heart and brainpower within. The Pro joins the "Rugby" team -- which also includes the Samsung Rugby Smart ,...

Samsung's Rugby Pro has stellar call quality, push-to-talk support, NFC, a speedy processor, and a decent 5-megapixel camera.

It doesn't look or feel all that durable, and the back panel popped open when I threw the handset.

Samsung's Rugby Pro makes a good, affordable choice for people seeking a more rugged smartphone, but it won't satisfy those who need an ultradurable frame.

Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro Review


Earlier this year, we saw the Samsung Rugby Smart come to AT&T, which set it apart from other smartphones with the carrier, as it was designed to be a rugged Android device. Now eight months later comes the follow-up, the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro – it...

Rugged and can keep out the elements ; Reasonable $100 contract price

Earpiece and speakerphone distortion at high call volumes ; No automatic brightness setting for the display ; Camera and video quality should be better

When it comes right down to it, the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro has a lot to offer, especially since it carries a reasonable $100 on-contract price. Its design and construction make it ideal for those individuals that need or require a rugged smartphone...
