Review: Samsung Rugby Smart for AT&T
The Rugby Smart is a neat little smartphone from Samsung. It's not a fully ruggedized tank, but it's tough enough to endure the daily trials and tribulations of an active lifestyle that might wreak havoc on lesser smartphones.
About the only bad thing I can say about it is the fuzzy-sounding voice calls and the not-loud-enough ringers. Otherwise, the Rugby Smart hits the mark almost everywhere else. It has solid battery life, zippy software performance, good media options, and all the essentials packed together in one, durable little shell.
If you need a smartphone that's more likely to actually live to see the end of its two-year contract, the Rugby Smart, which offers both brawn and brains, is a solid choice from AT&T.
