The phone is fast, very nice screen, quality build with Android 10, no carrier bloatware. The big thing for me is the replaceable battery. Every new smartphone I have had to buy is because the built battery would not hold a charge and was a pain to replace. (I know I have done it myself).
Now for some issues with setup. There is no user manual available. I went to the Samsung site and not there. Therefore you have to stumble through by yourself.
Inserting the SIM and SD Card. The phone has SIM 1 and SIM 2. for Verizon use SIM 1. The SIM card is installed under the SD Card. The slots are under the battery. Turning the phone on is intuitive, push the button on the side. Turning the phone off is not intuitive, the button does not work. The off button is on the upper right corner next to the settings button, both visible after swiping down. Transferring data and apps from your old phone is a snap, follow the prompts.
Since this a Global phone when you turn it on it automatically selects the best carrier, GMS or CDMA. What this means when you turn it on the first time it will connect but maybe not to Verizon. Here is what you have to do.
Now you are all set and on the Verizon network. If you try to activate on line with the EMIE it tells you it is invalid however the phone is on the network and works fine. I called Verizon and the only reason this happens is that the global phone is not yet in their EMIE database yet it will work fine (Verizon sells the same phone with a slightly different sub-model number). The only thing you will notice is that on line under "My Devices" you will see your phone number but no picture or model of your phone.
Some have questioned say that the phone does not support WIFI calling, it does in fact support WIFI calling, to activate you have to enter emergency contact information. I know this correct because I have it set up for WI-FI calling. Just ordered an OTTERBOX from their website, 20% less than on Amazon with free shipping.
Hope this helpful, great phone
Flagship phones are designed for obsolescence and cost twice as much. They have sealed-in batteries that typically fail after 2 years, and usually only promise 1-2 years of security updates. Since the Xcover Pro has Android 10 from the factory, it reportedly can support more thorough or lasting updates than Android 9 phones. The Xcover Pro guarantees 3-4 years of security updates, and has a 24-month warranty, whereas most phones offer only 12 month warranties and maybe 1 OS update.
The battery can be swapped out before a new work shift, and swapped out at the end of its useful life, using only our bare hands. This phone is rugged, water resistant, and has good cameras; other phones with removable batteries have no water-resistance, low-end processors, and low-end cameras. I don't want to contribute to electronic waste, so I chose a phone that is designed to last. The ultra-wide-angle camera seems to cover about 135 degrees, so you can stand in a room corner and fit the whole room into the frame.
It has a left-side button that can be assigned to any two apps via a long press or short press, and a top button that can be assigned to launch any two apps. The right-side power button can also be assigned, and I don't have to lift the phone off the desk to use the fingerprint reader that is built into the right-side power button.
* Dictation without the cloud
This phone can convert speech to text internally, without sending your voice to the cloud. I confirmed this by dictating text into apps while holding the right-side button, even when I had the phone in airplane mode.
* Wi-Fi calling
I need Wi-Fi calling so I can place and receive calls without paying exorbitant roaming fees when I travel, while using my regular phone number. Although Samsung reassured me that all their phones including this one support WI-Fi calling, after purchase Samsung support told me that Wi-Fi calling requires cell-carrier bloatware baked into the phone's firmware. Consequently, if you want this phone to have Wi-Fi calling, the only option is to get a carrier version. In the US it is only Verizon, so you will have to put up with the worst customer service I have experienced in years, or purchase the phone from Verizon then use it on another network.
* Point Of Sale (POS) transactions:
Samsung claims that this is the only phone with EMV Level-1 compatibility: "You can now accept payments without the need for additional hardware. The Galaxy XCover Pro has EMV Level-1 that makes it mPOS-ready." However, the Xcover Pro does NOT have MST (Magnetic Secure Transfer) hardware, and therefore does not support Samsung Pay for paying at point of sale (POS) locations.
Samsung claims I can use Google Pay, but I have not tried that, as I do not want Google to log every transaction I make with my phone. Unlike other payment systems, Samsung Pay uses MST hardware on their most popular phones to make credit card transactions compatible with all POS magnetic strip readers.
The phone does have NFC payment, which works only on POS systems that support NFC. So Ironically, the XCover Pro has more capabilities for accepting payments from other credit cards, but fewer capabilities for making payments with your own credit card due to lack of MST hardware.
This unlocked Xcover Pro has powered down for no apparent reason, and self-reset numerous times. I don't know if that's due to any of my installed apps, though they were working fine on my older & slower Samsung phone. I'm returning this phone and trying my luck with the Verizon version because Wi-Fi calling is essential to me. The Verizon XCover Pro is not self-resetting, but I have not yet allowed it to install the latest OS update, so I don't know if that will cause the resets.
*** UPDATE on 2020-07-25: ***
I purchased the $500 Verizon XCover Pro with a $200 discount to be credited monthly over 24 months, and an additional $200 credit on my first Verizon bill for porting my phone number to a Verizon Enterprise account. Obtaining a new account from Verizon was so aggravating I'm not sure it will be worth the savings.
1) As far as I know my Verizon XCover Pro has not self-reset. I've had it for almost two months. I suppose I should restart the phone.
2) If anyone has conclusively been able to get this unlocked XCover Pro to work with Wi-Fi calling, please reply to this review and let us know. Samsung told me Wi-Fi calling is not possible on an unlocked phone.
3) If you have been able to get this phone at a discount from Verizon on a personal account, let us know.
4) Unsurprisingly, Verizon's custom bloatware on the Verizon version of the XCover Pro disabled the built-in FM radio. Carriers do this to push us into their data plan. So no emergency radio reception for when the towers are down or out of reach, and no radio feed without a data plan on the Verizon version.
5) The FM radio on this unlocked phone was not disabled. However, I could not get FM radio reception using the NextRadio app (all I heard was noise) even though reception was great on my nearby Android tablet using the same wired earphones as an antenna. Does the FM radio work on your XCover Pro? You you can install the NextRadio app and use wired earphones as an antenna.
The Xcover PRO is actually a lot larger and heavier than I was expecting, but I'm getting used to it. I unboxed the phone, put the battery in it and charged it up. It took about 90 minutes for a full charge. Transferring my old apps and contacts to the new phone was painless and was over in mere minutes. I plugged in the SIM card and made a few calls on it. It works fine on AT&T. Battery life appears to be excellent. I still have more than 50% at the end of the day, so I could probably get through a second day at work without having to recharge. The camera gets some great shots. I love the combo side key/fingerprint reader. It's the perfect place to put it... right on the unlock button.
Nothing too mysterious about this phone. It took me a little while to puzzle out where the SD card plugs in. Get a magnifying glass and look for the legend stamped in the case next to the SIM slot.
The only minor gripe is that some of the stuff that this page says comes with the phone wasn't in the box I got. It was all just minor stuff, so it didn't prevent me from using the phone, but I'll include it here so that the seller can correct their information on this page (or if it is correct, maybe they could just send the stuff to me). Here's their full list:
Travel Adapter Included
Data Cable (also for charging) Included
Sim Card Ejection Pin NOT Included
Rechargeable Battery Included
USB Connector ??? There's a USB type C jack on the phone, and there are USB connectors on the Data Cable, otherwise NOT Included
Screen Protector Leaflet NOT Included
Smart Switch Insert Not sure what this is exactly, but it's NOT Included
Quick Reference Manual Included, but it's a tiny pictures only trifold. You'll also want to read the real manual which is available on line
Terms & Conditions/ Health & Safety Guide Included
The removable battery is what made me spring for this phone. It's the feature I care about most. I bet that if you've stumbled upon this review you also care a great deal for this feature and don't want to get suckered in to buying a phone that needs to be replaced every 2 years.
I have no complaints about the phone at all - it provides the perfect blend of functionality, performance and practicality the market has to offer at the moment.
Despite this, the killer feature of this phone cannot be experienced if its removable batteries are not made available and at a reasonable price if/when they are. The battery (GH43-04993A) appears to be available outside the US. It is hopefully just a matter of time before they're available here.
