Pluses: a really tough phone. Hardware design wise, the only real failing is the flimsy multifunction jack cover, which swings downwards and slightly out, making it vulnerbale to a knock from your hand. The camera works okay, and it is possible to take good snaps in certain conditions. With only 1.3 megapixels picture quality is not great though. Videos also turn out rough. But the reason you buy this phone is for its ruggedness, most particularly the waterproofing. Don't expect much more from it. You can adequately call, text and take snaps in harsh and challenging environments. Therefore, the B2100 is a good choice for manual workers, travellers, fisherpeople etc. If you want multimedia, or any kind of slickness, don't buy this phone.
Update: I've been using the Samsung B2100 for a while now and the thing that has come to bother me most is the terrible menu/function design.Read more ›
This phone is awesome, it's waterproof as long as the port that covers the battery charging access is firmly in place, so if it should 'go for a swim it's much more likely to survive. My phone has already had a couple of water encounters that would have killed lesser phones.
The unit is sealed so I don't have to worry about using it with salty / dirty / oily hands as it can be rinsed off. The case fits nicely in the hand, and the keys are good size.
I would recommend this phone for boating, dirty or wet out door pursuits, and even mechanics and other folks involved in jobs where your phone is likely to get mucky!
The battery has a pretty good life. The phone also has a torch, the only thing that it lacks is a bottle opener!
So impressed am I that I have bought additional phones for my staff / business.
I cover multiple countries from Haiti to Sudan to Pakistan all in different time zones and their is a world clock application that let's me know the time in those places as I scroll through. It's got the other standard applications such as converter (currency, time, temp, etc...), alarm clock and timer, calendar, etc... The flashlight is strong and use it often.
I am used to the Nokia set up, so the Samsung is taking a little getting used to going through the menu.
I purchased all the peripherals so I can charge it on the go or when there is no wall outlet. The battery life is strong. I have been here one week and still have two bars. So far, looks good. Works well. A good travel phone.
Pros: Solid performance, feels sturdy when holding it, small enough to put in your pocket, great MP3 player, menus are easy to navigate, bios can be flashed from Samsung's support website. Holds all personal data even if battery is removed except time and date. All in all, this phone does everything it should do for its type and is definitely a very rugged phone which is perfect for me.
Cons: Only thing I can think of is that I have to update the date and time when the battery is removed. Instruction manual is in Russian, (LOL!) but is easily downloaded from Samsung's website.
One additional comment, never order anything if it isn't available through Amazon's fulfillment department, you can rest easy you're getting great service, an actual new phone not a reconditioned one that is advertised as new or an open box item.
