For some life in the outdoors is an everyday occurrence. Whether your job or passion has you out in all weathers and environments, the Xcover 4 has been designed with those in harsher environments in mind.
Whether you are a farmer, lumberjack, site warden or builder, the Xcover 4 will withstand conditions which would be beyond most regular phones.
Water, dust, dirt and drops onto concrete are not sympathetic for most technology products.
The Xcover 4 continues on from the Xcover 3 and offers a cost-effective smartphone that has been engineered to offer more resistance to the elements yet remain practical and as desirable as possible.
Gripping the phone securely has been improved, thanks to a redesigned casing and back plate with a tactile surface.
The touch screen sensitivity has also been improved since the last generation. You can now interact with the screen even when wearing gloves.
An additional key has also been placed on the side of the phone - you can program this to launch specific apps or other features to suit your use.
NFC has been included in the new Xcover 4. This allows for contactless payments through Android Pay and seamless pairing with compatible accessories.
Samsung has also seen fit to extend their Knox security apps and protocols to the Xcover 4. With Knox installed, the Xcover 4 is business-ready and able to be quickly folded into existing MDM solutions.
You will be able to use the Xcover in fresh water at depths of 1.5 metre for up to 30 minutes.
If you live or work around water such protection can be a real delight when you hear the splash of the phone hitting the water.
This IP rating also ensures protection against other damaging substances like dust and sand.
Thus, whether you are at the top of a snowy peak, or in the middle of the desert, the Xcover 4 will power through.

MIL Spec 810G
It may be stereotypical but the evidence is there to confirm that many who work in the trades are more likely to be replacing their phone due to the environment in which they work.
If this includes you, the Galaxy Xcover 4 boasts MIL Spec 810G rating which ensures the device will survive multiple drops from heights of approx 1.2 metres onto solid concrete.
Ideal for groundworkers, scaffolders or anyone working at height.
Aside from iOS on an Apple device, the big mobile platform of choice is Google’s Android.
It is the latter that is installed on the Xcover 4 and gives you the facility to be online, functional and connected to the wider world within a matter of minutes.
With apps for navigation, email, document editing, the Xcover can do more than just make phone calls or be a device to access the internet.
Download specific apps from the Play Store to make it more personal to you. Customise the OS to make the interface work the way you want it.
A quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM keep the Xcover 4 ticking along nicely with all the tasks you ask of it.
16GB of internal memory provides some space for apps and media, but this can be further expanded via a microSD card up to 256GB.
A front 5-megapixel camera is present as is a rear facing 13-megapixel lens for those who need and want to take pictures on the go. With WiFi and 4G connectivity, it is easy to share images or make live video calls from wherever you are.
If you need a phone that can survive more than most, the Xcover 4 is the fourth generation of Xcover smartphone that deals with water and dust.
*Since September 2013, Samsung has implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only has access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.
For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.
Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.
Without activation, you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.
**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.
IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
