The Bottom Line The Samsung Rugby II improves on its predecessor and delivers a functional, rugged phone with satisfying performance. Very poor call quality is especially unacceptable on a simple cell phone. Unless you require AT&T's push-to-talk service, keep looking. The Samsung Rugby SGH-A837's could use a few improvements, but it remains a solid choice for a rugged, straight-forward phone with a loaded feature set.
