The first look will definitely confirm that you have the honor of a durable Samsung. The manufacturer maintains its design, where the black color is complemented by stylish red accessories, which are located, for example, around the buttons or cameras on the back. The phone has a massive frame that is rubberized, the back is plastic with a non-slip surface. It is not surprising that the MIL STD-810G military standard is met, so the phone can handle falls from a height, while nothing major should happen to it. Water and dust are not a problem either, IP68 certification is met.
Durability is also ensured through the removable back cover. You will have to remove it every time you want to insert a nano SIM card or memory card. Likewise, if you happen to want to replace the battery. Yes, the battery is user replaceable. However, this is its only plus, the capacity of 4,050 mAh is rather below average and the battery life barely lasts a full day.
The display also took care of increased durability and the 6.6″ IPS panel is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus+. However, it is a great pity that the manufacturer did not use an AMOLED panel. The phone is destined to be used outdoors, where a better quality display with higher brightness would definitely be used .So you have to make do with average, Full HD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate.
The environment, on the other hand, is the phone’s strong point, which is no surprise for Samsung. Android 12 with July security patches is deployed. The great news is that the Galaxy XCover6 Pro is among the cream of the crop and will receive updates every month. The One UI 4.1 superstructure watches over Android, which helps to control the system on a large display. Quick control buttons are a welcome feature. The upper key is fixed to quickly start the flashlight. Unfortunately, having an unlocked phone is a requirement. On the left side there is a huge XCover key, which can be assigned two functions: for short and long press. Any installed application can be launched, but for example you can also assign the Back or Home function to the button. For left-handed people, it can be a great solution to control the phone with one hand.
Rather, the cameras on the novelty are just an accessory, and this time there are two on the back. A decent 50-megapixel sensor will last especially during the day. It is complemented by an ultra-wide-angle lens with 8 megapixels.
