Samsung Convoy 2
The Samsung Convoy 2 is a flip phone made to withstand the elements - a phone you can take with you when you go backpacking, hiking, and camping. Its design is a little heavier and thicker than some of the sleeker phones, at 3.9" by 2" by 0.9", with a weight of 3.9 oz. That substantial size and weight, however, pays off in durability. You'll never have to worry about the phone being destroyed if it slips out of your hands. Unlike the previous Convoy, the outside is no longer rubberized, so the phone may feel a little less sturdy than its predecessor, but rest assured, it can take just as much wear and tear as the original, so don't let the unusual feel scare you off.
The display is a 2.2" QVGA display at 320 x 240 pixels, delivering crisper and more vibrant images than you might expect for the phone's price. It can show off all the pictures you take with the 3.2-megapixel camera or the videos you take with the phone's video recorder. Use the photo editing features to tune up your photos and make sure they look great on your phone before you send them on to your friends or store them on a microSD card. There's not a lot of internal storage automatically included with the phone, but the microSD card can expand it up to 32 GB to let you keep all your photos, videos, and music.
One of the Convoy 2's greatest strengths is its excellent volume, which comes in handy when using the phone outside. Both call volume and video playback volume can be cranked up to a nice loud volume so you know you'll be able to hear all your important calls, no matter where you are. It can even announce loudly who is calling, for easy call screening. The people on the other end will be able to hear you in noisy locations too, thanks to a dual-microphone design that helps to eliminate outside noise and send just your voice through the phone. The phone has excellent call quality, with no dropped calls. It's also Push-To-Talk enabled if you want to include that in your wireless plan.
The Convoy 2 comes with plenty of incredible features that fans of previous Samsung rugged phones will enjoy, such as a flashlight, an easy-to-work music library, the "Fake Call" app, and an abundance of settings to let you customize your phone however you want. The phone ships with the Opera Mini browser, a speedy and efficient browser. The browser and the phone's natural performance speed work brilliantly together, loading complex web pages in a matter of seconds. The browser is easy to work on the Convoy's small screen.
