We all love our smartphones — a computer in our pocket, keeping us connected and organised. The trouble is their fragility.

Drop that shiny device, and it won’t bounce. Or, likely, do much else until a repair bill is paid. So then, why don’t they build them more rugged?

Well they do.

Samsung’s Xcover S5960 is a rugged smartphone and, what’s more, it hasn’t suffered the typical side-effects of ruggedisation.
