Samsung Rugby Smart review: Advantages and Disadvantages

AT&T released a really necessary smartphone last week, Samsung Rugby Smart. It is a rugged Android smartphone from Samsung. It’s only priced $99.99 on contract. The Rugby Smart is far from being the prettiest handset around, but if you’re in need of a rugged device you’ll probably not mind that. Despite being a newcomer to the U.S. market, the Samsung Rugby Smart is hardly a revolution in terms of design or specifications. The new Rugby is dustproof, shockproof, and waterproof (it can be submerged in up to 1m of water for half an hour).
