The Excellent Samsung Galaxy Xcover Is Waterproof To 1 Metre But Loaded With Smartphone Technology
The popular Samsung Galaxy smartphone series has just seen a number of new additions. One of these is the Samsung Galaxy Xcover. This handset sees the levels of smartphone technology you would expect from the Galaxy series, but with a twist.
With IP67 certification, it joins the ranks of handsets such as the Motorola Defy which is aimed at those who need their phone to have a certain degree of ruggedness and protection from the elements. IP67 certification is only given to products which meet the following criteria:
-Total dust ingress protection
-Water immersion between 15cm and 1m
Therefore the Samsung Galaxy Xcover is ideal for anyone who works outside, or lives a lifestyle where they are often outdoors meaning they need a phone which can handle adverse weather conditions.
The beauty of this handset is that it does not sacrifice its functionality as a smartphone in order to achieve its weather proof credentials. So what technology is included with this handset?
A 3.65 inch capacitive touchscreen which boasts a resolution of 320x 480 means the handset is great for multimedia use, be it viewing photos, videos, playing games or browsing the web. Additionally, the screen itself is manufactured from Gorilla glass, which prevents cracks and chips should the phone be accidentally dropped. The touchscreen is also a very responsive means of navigating the TouchWiz UI thanks to an 800 MHz processor, a feature which also bring benefits to other software and hardware aspects of the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy Xcover is also a good camera phone. Although it may lack the resolution of its counterparts and many competing handsets, it is still capable of taking good quality still images thanks to the 3.2 megapixel unit, which is also capable of video capture, and as an added bonus an LED flash is included.
The latest version of the Android OS is included, so users have the versatility to customise their phone, and download applications from the Android Market, greatly increasing the functionally of the phone. The handset also comes with 150 MB of storage, but thanks to an integrated microSD slot, a memory card of up to 32 GB can be installed, meaning users have plenty of scope for storage of music tracks, videos, applications, games and documents etc.
The Samsung Galaxy Xcover may not have the widespread appeal of the rest of the Galaxy range, but thanks to its dustproof and waterproof qualities, it is sure to prove popular among those who seek those qualities in a mobile phone.
