Sell Samsung Rugby 3
Smartphones have been around for a long time, and they have displaced and replaced a lot of other devices because they can handle just about any task, from phone calls to surfing the web, literally turning into a mobile workshop. But what seems to have been resurrected lately are the flip phones.
Today, traditional flip phones are great as backup devices; they can be useful if you need a phone that isn’t distracting but can handle the basic stuff. All the same, there are those folks who would be fine with flip phones as their main device.
The Samsung Rugby 3 is a compact device, a flip phone with both internal and external display; it has the traditional alpha-numeric keys and a battery that can take you several days. Since the emphasis of flip phones is not on a cellular connection, they ought to last several days, but they are still limited because of the relatively small batteries when compared with smartphones. The Rugby 3’s battery can provide a continuous talk time of up to 9 hours.
The Rugby 3 may not be a smartphone, but it sends and receives texts just as easily. It comes with all the advantages of a flip phone and more being very durable. For older folks who would have a hard time getting used to more recent phones, the Rugby 3 is more complex than the older flip phone, but it is simple enough for anyone to use. One doesn’t need a user manual to learn all of its functionalities. It has a good sound; its alarm is loud enough to wake up even the deepest sleeper.
Before we go further, you should know that Rugby 3 is dated. Since it was launched in 2013, Samsung has released the Rugby 4, which is more equipped. If you would love to upgrade, then use Gizmogo’s trade-in service. Our trade-in service allows you to get a phone you want from our collection in exchange for your old device.
Samsung Rugby 3 Specifications
Design info: The Rugby 3 has a sturdy clamshell build, made of hardened plastic and sealed internally to withstand dust, water and take falls without falling apart so quickly. It stands at 4.1 inches when open and is about 2.4 inches when closed, and runs at 0.82 inches from side to side. The slanted grooves that run along the spines provide more grip for the phone when held open. It has a speaker grille at the top of the internal screen. Closed, the external screen shows the time, date, and battery life, then fades after a few seconds.
Its back panel closes with a type of screw that can be operated with a fingernail to keep the electronic components and battery sealed in watertight. Under the cover are the microSD card slot and the SIM card slot. The screen flips open around a strong hinge that allows smooth motion.
The keypad is large and made of plastic which means it doesn’t have the soft touch you’ll expect a keypad to have since there’s no rubber used here, but when pressed, it clicks softly. Its ruggedness meets Military specs, able to withstand shock, vibration, humidity, dust, and rain. It has an IP67 certification, so it’ll also survive a fall in the water.
For a flip phone, the speakers are loud, and they are good too, calls are loud and clear, but for other things, on a loud volume, noticeable distortions in sound quality can be perceived. It has a headphone jack, though, so you can listen to music on the go.
Capacity info: The Rugby 3 has an SDcard port that allows you to expand its storage up to 32 GB. Its internal storage capacity is 256MB with 128MB RAM.
Size and Weight info: With dimensions of 104.1 x 53.3 x 20.3, the Rugby 3 weighs 133 grams.
Display info: The Rugby 3 has both an internal and an external display. The external display is what you see when the phone is closed and lasts only a few seconds. It shows the date and time, and battery level and fades away quickly. The main display, when flipped open, is a 2.4-inch screen with a QVGA display and a resolution of 320 x 240. The screen is bright enough for outdoor use and supports 260,000 colors functioning on a pixel density of 166ppi.
Camera and video recording info: The camera is a single 3-megapixel camera that can record videos in 320 x 340 resolution. There isn’t much to this camera, but this is not a problem for the Rugby 3 since photography is one of the last things it is used for.
Water-resistance info: It is IP67 certified and can survive submersion underwater for up to 30 minutes.
Performance info: Call quality is the major way to assess its performance, and in Rugby 3, this is just ok.
Connectivity info: The Rugby 3 is powered by a simple UI that was popular on other AT&T devices. You can use this flip phone for simple browsing on a 2G and 3G network. It operates on a quad-band GSM and supports Bluetooth and GPS. You won’t have to worry about data speed since that’s not what flip phones are about.
Battery info: The battery of the Rigby 3 is good enough to provide 9 hours of talk time. On standby, it’ll last as many as 20 days.
