The Samsung Rugby Smart (SGH-i847) was a ruggedized Android smartphone manufactured by Samsung, for use on the AT&T Mobility network. The phone was 4G capable, but lacked LTE support.[3] It was dust and vibration resistant, as well as waterproof to a depth of 1 meter (3.3 ft) for 30 minutes, earning the phone an ingress protection rating of IP67.[1][4]


The Samsung Rugby Smart was rated 4 stars out of 5 by PC Magazine and selected as their Editors' Choice.[3] Phone Arena scored it 7½ out of 10.[5] CNET rated the smartphone 3½ stars out of 5.[4]

Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro[edit]

In October 2012, Samsung and AT&T announced the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro (SGH-i547), a successor to the Rugby Smart that includes similar durability and also ships with a scratch-resistant screen,[6] something its previous model lacked. This rugged smartphone has passed military specification tests, like surviving blowing rain and sand, high humidity, and thermal shock.[7] It comes with the push-to-talk features, but has LTE capability and a faster 1.5 GHz processor running Android 4.0 ICS.[2]
