The Samsung Galaxy Xcover did not really manage to impress us. Granted, a rugged smartphone isn't judged by its performance, and the Xcover has been out for quite a while, but the performance is too mediocre to ignore it completely. The hands-on experience with this phone wasn't any better, we were not impressed by how slow everything went. Add to that the poor screen with low resolution and brightness, not to mention the viewing angles, we see no reason to not spend a little more money and instead buy the Sony Xperia Go. For slightly more you have durable phone that's more recent, performs better and has a much better display.
