Samsung Rugby SGH-A837 review

 

For a long time, Sprint Nextel has had a lock on rugged cell phones with push-to-talk capability, but with the new Samsung SGH-A837, AT&T is trying to get back in the game. The SGH-A837, aka the Rugby (presumably because it can take a lot of blows), is...

The Samsung Rugby SGH-A837 has a durable, easy-to-use design with an excellent feature set that includes 3G support, push-to-talk, and GPS. Photo quality is excellent.

The Samsung Rugby SGH-A837's call quality was a bit uneven and streaming-video quality was disappointing. Also, it uses a proprietary headset jack and it lacks voice dialing.

The Samsung Rugby SGH-A837's could use a few improvements, but it remains a solid choice for a rugged, straight-forward phone with a loaded feature set.

Samsung SGH-a837 Rugby torture test

 

AT&T's Samsung SGH-a837 Rugby claims to have been tested again Military Standard MI-SID-810F to withstand vibration, rain, humidity, solar radiation, dust, and extreme temperatures. That's all well and good but the folks at MobileBurn.com wanted to see...

"Problems since I got it; not worth price even if free"

 

They say it is durable

Takes very poor pictures; sim card went bad; battery went bad. Got this phone for work, and it has been a constant irritation. It never did have good battery life, even before battery died. Had phone 7 months, and have made 4 trips to AT&T so far.

"Why have durable if it doesn't work"

 

I asked for the most durable phone in the store when I bought this phone, I got what I asked for but was not prepared for the down side. The phone loses connection, and even after the signal comes back, it will not regain connection. My local store has...

Durable enough for my harsh work environment

Loses signal and will not regain till power is cycled, sometimes several off/on's required

If you have a toddler, you NEED this phone! ”

 

After having three cellphones within a year destroyed in some way by our very adventurous, and very sneaky, toddler, my husband decided to get me this phone in the hopes that it might make it for more than a couple months. At first, I was disappointed...
