Rugged Samsung Rugby Pro

In the hierarchy of durable phones, the Samsung Rugby Pro is rugged light. What it lacks in thick, rubbery armor, it makes up for with push-to-talk and the most advanced Android capabilities I've seen on a phone of this type.

Flaps

Flaps like this headset jack cover snap into place to keep out dirt and water.

Almost flush

The styled sides are fairly flush with the phone's screen, not recessed. On the plus side, the display is easier to read. On the downside, it's also easier to break.

More buttons

The physical buttons are easier to press with gloves, but you'll still have to remove them to touch the screen.

Side armor

I like the raised, grippy buttons on the Rugby Pro's spine, and that convenience key above the volume rocker can trigger any app, including push-to-talk.

Camera

The 5-megapixel camera and flash are actually really good, a surprise for a rugged phone, where a good shooter usually takes the back seat.

Oops

I may have thrown the phone a little harder than I intended on a carpeted surface (not the concrete pictured), but the back panel immediately popped up. Make sure you screw that down well.
