When Sony launched its Xperia Z phone with water-proof capabilties, the world seemed moved, feelings moistened with consumers’ heart ready to pour out its kindness to Sony this year, but we knew that Samsung won’t let the company ride on the water-proof capabilities alone. And so, Samsung pushed its new Galaxy Xcover 2 phone with IP67 certification promising water-proof of upto 1 meter and 30 minutes. What’s interesting to note here is that Galaxy Xcover 2 is not high-end handset, whereas Sony Xperia Z is high-end handset, so this gives us a feeling that Water-proof capabilities will soon be among the mainstream features in smartphones of this year.
Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 Specification
Apart from being waterproof phone and its resistance to dust/sand, lets see what else is there on inside of this phone as far as its practical usability is concerned. Galaxy Xcover 2 is mid-range android phone as it has dual-core processor of 1GHz and 1GB RAM. It has screen size of 4 inch and resolution of 800*400 pixels. So, whats disappointing here is that Samsung is still not bumping up screen resolution scale in its mid-range phone, even in year – 2013. I mean atleast move to qHD resolution could have done more justice and won our hearts. On the rear is embedded camera of 5mp with LED flash, on the front, we’ve meager vga 0.3mp camera. There is nothing to boast here, but we do have dedicated physical camera key on Galaxy Xcover 2, which is not easily seen on android smartphone these days. On the design level, this phone looks different. Just look at the image of Galaxy Xcover 2 and you’ll have idea of what I’m referring to here.
