Samsung A837 Ruby

The Samsung A837 Rugby is a robust, but very effective hook, the PTT telephone and a variety of 3G services. This heavy-duty work phone makes it easy to get the job done right with Push-to-Talk technology, a large external speaker, 3G high-speed data access, Multiple Messaging and more. Even though it is no Motorola i365, we're confident it could take a few blows. At 3.95 inches tall by 2.05 inches wide by 0.90 inch deep and 4.66 ounces, the Rugby is on the hefty side; it should still fit in larger pockets, and it slides easily into a bag. Indeed, the plastic skin feels relatively tough and the hinge mechanism is sturdy. What's more, it has a comfortable feel in the hand. Call clarity is very good, but it has a slight muffled sound to it, and BlueTooth works great as well, I had no problems with my Jabra BT530 headset and the Rugby. The speakerphone doesn?t sound the greatest but it works, you?re not going to be listening to music or anything though it so for voice conversations it?s fine.The internal display is a bit small (2 inches) for the phone's overall size, but with support for 262,000 colors is both bright and vibrant. Colors and graphics are sharp and text is readable. You can select one of two easy-to-use menu styles and you can adjust the brightness, the backlighting time, and the dialing-font, size, type, and color. The keypad buttons on the Rugby are well-designed. They arrangement is spacious and the keys are tactile and separated from each other. We could dial and text quickly and dial by feel. The numbers on the keys are a bit small, but they have a bright backlighting. It?s all protected by a rugged design that?s highly durable and damage resistant. This phone is certified to military standard MIL-STD-810F and comes in black, yellow or deep burgundy building.

Samsung A837 Ruby mobile phone

I would really buy Samsung A837 Ruby because it is durable, loud, bluetooth, and it feels good when and is easy to find. But when i try to find it's review came to know that it's battery life is less than two days at standby with no use, it also has poor audio quality.
