Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy XCover 7

79.1% Samsung Galaxy XCover7 Smartphone Review – An economical rugged phone with a removable battery | Notebookcheck
The Galaxy XCover 7 is more affordable but also has lower-end specifications than the last XCover. It has the basics: a protected chassis, a removable battery and 5G. But users have to make do with less performance. Can this be a good thing? Or may Samsung have cut the wrong corners on this phone?
Samsung Galaxy Xcover7 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Samsung Galaxy Xcover7 is a decent rugged smartphone that wins in some areas such as the display, processing, and latest Android features, but loses out in other areas. The lack of a fingerprint scanner and a reliable fast charger can be a big no for many users, especially when it has a smaller battery compared to other rugged smartphones. Don’t get us wrong, the battery in the Samsung Galaxy XCover7 will last 1 – 2 days, there’s no doubt about that. But the battery in other rugged smartphones often lasts a full week instead of a few days. Even this would be acceptable if the pricing is all right. However, the pricing details are not out yet but judging by the price of its predecessor, it will be a bit premium. This is where the dilemma is. At such price tags, rugged smartphones from other brands will have way better specs and features. So, if you need better specs and the best features, then the Samsung Galaxy XCover7 is not for you.

6.60":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

78.78%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
