Review: Samsung Rugby Smart for AT&T
The Rugby's 5-megapixel camera does an admirable job. The images I captured with it were in focus, showed good white/color balance, and exposure was spot on. Shots taken outdoors under the sun looked impressive. Indoor shots, as is normal, showed a bit more grain than outdoor shots, but still looked good. The bright flash goes a long way to making sure those pix of your friends turn out well. In all, the Rugby can certainly serve to replace a point-and-shoot.
The Rugby shoots video at a maximum of 720p HD resolution. The sample video I took looked very good. I was pleased with the focus and sharpness of the video, and the amount of detail visible. Color was a bit off, though. In the sample video below, you'll notice that my skin looks a bit orange. I assure you, I skipped the spray-on tan before shooting the sample. The blues look OK, though.

Bottom line, the Rugby's video camera does a mostly fine job at recording video.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S7 Active for AT&T
Samsung's latest semi-rugged smartphone for AT&T dials back the good looks of the Galaxy S7 in favor of a stronger, studier frame. The S7 Active is tough enough to take a tumble without the brick-like bulk of some fully rugged handsets.
Hands On with the Cat Phone S61
Cat Phones has a new rugged flagship at Mobile World Congress this year and it takes the Flir heat-capture camera to a new level of productivity. This phone is tough as nails and still lets people measure temperature, air quality, and distance/area with a laser.
Review: OnePlus 6
The OnePlus 6 is the company's latest attempt to convince you that ultra-pricey flagships are unnecessary; why spend $800 to $1000 on a phone when you can get one that's nearly as good for just over $500? The 6 is an attractive metal-and-glass device that has the latest design from OnePlus, the latest specs from Qualcomm and others, and the latest Android software from Google.
