With a thickness of 10 millimeters and a weight of 200 grams, the Xcover Pro is not the thinnest and lightest smartphone. On the other hand, it is very robust. For example, the device meets the MIL-STD-810G standard, which means that it can withstand a fall from a height of one and a half meters. A fall on the street should therefore not result in a cracked screen. Interesting is the push-to-talk button on the side of the smartphone. When you press it, you can talk via a walkie-talkie function.

The IP68 certification keeps the smartphone water and dustproof. So you can take it with you when you go to the beach, although the phone does not like salt water. The pool or shower shouldn't be a problem. The Xcover Pro is also one of the few smartphones that still has a removable battery. This is possible because of the plastic housing. Put the back on firmly after removing the battery, otherwise the smartphone will not be water- and dust-proof.
The battery capacity is more than 4000 mAh, above average for this type of smartphone. So you can use the Xcover Pro for a long day, probably even a day and a half. Charging is easy via the USB-C port. Don't have a charger but do have an extra battery at hand? Put it in and you have a device with a full battery again!
The Galaxy Xcover Pro has a relatively large 6.3-inch screen with sharp full-HD resolution. At the top of the screen corner is a hole for the selfie camera. In addition to the primary camera lens, you will also find a wide-angle camera on the back that takes wide images. The smartphone runs on a smooth Exynos processor, has a large 64GB storage memory and runs on Android with the OneUI shell from Samsung. The manufacturer promises a few years of updates.
