Samsung Announces Galaxy XCover: Durable and Reliable

So, we have another Galaxy in line. Samsung has announced a new mobile phone which will be called Samsung Galaxy XCover. Unlike other Samsung smartphones, Galaxy XCover is one phone which is very durable and reliable. It is designed especially for people who hardly care about their phone and accidentally drop their phone on land, water and in dust consistently. The team will be very proud after creating such a phone which so many people needed. Samsung will make difference with this phone and I totally believe it.

The phone does not only survive everyday falls, can stay underwater(up to 30 minutes) and is totally resistant to dust. Don’t think that this phone everything on the outside and nothing from the inside. Before you think so, lemme tell you the specs.

  • The phone comes with a capacitive 3.65 inches touch screen.
  • Internal memory of 150 MB will be given and it can be expanded up to 32 GB with microSD card. Plus, you will get 2 GB free in the box.
  • GPRS, EDGE, 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB v2.0 are available in the connectivity section.
  • It comes with a 3.2 megapixels camera with geo-tagging and LED flash. Video recording is also available but details aren’t out yet.
  • Galaxy XCover would run on Android 2.3(Gingerbread) and no details about upgrading limits.
  • It weighs 135 grams.
  • It will be powered by a 800 Mhz processor.
  • It will come with a 1500 mAh battery but the battery backup details aren’t released yet.

This phone will be totally different than the other smartphones who are lighter, slimmer and all that. This phone focuses on extreme conditions and make sure the user becomes fear less over his/her mobile phone. The smartphone will have a tempered glass display that is up to five times stronger than normal glass.

The price isn’t announced yet but according to my guess, the price would be somewhere around Rs. 27,000. The phone will hit the stores(not in India) in most probably October 2011(not sure yet). I will definitely be waiting for this extra-ordinary phone.

5 Tips to Consider While Purchasing a Mobile Phone

With the invention of new technologies, everybody wants to use and experience these technologies. Mobile Phones are one of the fastest growing  market these days . Here I am sharing some helpful  tips that you must take care while purchasing a mobile:

Configuration Matters the Most

First and foremost thing is mobile’s configuration. Configuration is what matter over the style. Ofcourse features are only aspect which will lead your relationship with your phone, otherwise you will surely get bored of same phone within a few months. Keep this in mind that what functions does it support, can you run those application or software that you want on it? Its always a good practice to make the list of features which you want on your phone and then go for it.

Price /Budget

The second thing is your budget/price of phone  I consider it as second because first priority is the features and they are comparable to the price. If you are going to a mobile shop without fixing a budget in mind is like going to give an exam without preparation. You must decide a affordable price in mind.

Sensitivity and size

The next most important factor is sensitivity, which is applicable for Touchscreen Phones. If the touchscreen sensitivity is good than it is worth buying it otherwise leave it and buy a simple phone.

Check how quickly it response to your touches and do check how to switch off the screen when not using it because many times people accidentally do things on their touchscreen  just because they forgot to switch It off so just check out the screen switch off mechanism. With the sensitivity being a part, size also matter a lot, usually touchscreen have a bigger size as compare to the others phones else you will find it difficult to run your finger on it .


You should always care for the phone’s memory size how much internal and external memory it supports. Internal Memory of the phone matters a lot because it will effect your phone’s multi-tasking features and Internet speed.


Battery life of the phone is most important point while purchasing a Phone, Always look for a phone which must have long battery backup and helps you in enjoying your phone for long.
