The Samsung Convoy 4 is a simplistic, rugged flip phone designed to work in the harshest environments, from the worksite to the wilderness. A Verizon exclusive handset, this is a great travel companion and work buddy for those who need a durable, reliable device that can withstand whatever life throws at you.
Measuring 4.26 inches long, weighing 5.82 ounces and available in blue, you'll have no trouble operating it in one hand--even with gloves on. The Convoy 4 is about more than just work, with Bluetooth, messaging, email, web browsing capabilities, games, music and social networking; you can be equally productive with your downtime.
So, let's take a look at the unique features and capabilities of the Samsung Convoy 4.
Despite the clamshell form factor, the Samsung Convoy 4 is far from being a softie, since it is capable of holding its own in extreme work and weather environments. It's ideal for use at construction sites, manufacturing facilities, distribution centers, and outdoor work zones. The handset also meets military standards for extreme temperatures, dust and shock resistance. It can also be submerged in up to 39 inches of water for up to 30 minutes without damage.
The Convoy 4 sports a decent 5 MP camera for capturing photos in different light conditions or recording video when you need it. You won't find any editing or sharing tools from the camera, but the photos aren't bad.
Other great features include powerful dual microphones and noise canceling technology. We were surprised at how great call quality was, even in harsh weather conditions. If your job calls for you to leave the country, the Convoy 4 also serves as a reliable travel companion with global roaming support for more than 200 countries. The Push to Talk function also allows group calls with up to 250 participants in a walkie-talkie style.
The downsides to the Samsung Convoy 4 are fairly obvious. As a basic phone, don't expect the frills a modern handset can give you. The Web browser and email client are rudimentary at best, and obviously, the small, low-resolution screen size is ill suited for playing games or watching videos.
The Samsung Convoy 4 boasts a lot of superb features at a low price tag, but doesn't offer the versatility and entertainment of a smartphone. For an affordable, durable smartphone that won't break the bank, check out the Samsung Galaxy J3. To see more flip phone reviews, go here!
