Samsung Universe: The secret life of mobile phones

The guaranteed durability is not worth the surcharge for everyone, but in some segments it is not only the grumpy appearance that makes them attractive.

As a field user, it is not necessarily clear in which market segment models with less powerful hardware, but with heavily reinforced enclosures and special features (say PTT), can really prevail, apart from the fact that anyone can typically get a very low price / value ratio. you can also get them at retail. Corporate end-use, on the other hand, is just such an area.

Samsung has just passed 740,000 Galaxy Xcover Prots to Walmart, where the new devices will replace two devices in the day-to-day work of workers. This is the largest volume of corporate collaboration in Samsung’s history in the U.S., and the hardware protection provided by Knox allows mobile phones to be used for private purposes in addition to work, which is also supported by Walmart if the user needs it. Because the company’s internal system and the user’s private data can be separated perfectly and securely.

Walmart developed its own application and system components Walmart Global Tech as Samsung’s enterprise services and features throughoutare exposed. These include customized remote control, network data analysis, device discovery when they get mixed up, and specific, deep-layer configuration. And in thousands of items, it doesn’t really matter that this can be done not only remotely, but also automatically and in bulk. In addition to advanced license management, extra software and features, and remote access, Samsung’s enterprise devices can operate just like a field mobile.

Instead of the walkie-talkie and barcode scanner used so far, workers only need to take the Xcover Prot with them, even for home use if they like. The rear camera system (25 MP + 8 MP ultra-wide) is specifically optimized for reading the barcodes used by Walmart (but obviously this can be played in other formats), and the PTT (Push-to-Talk) button and associated application replace the phone out, and in the private space, completely ordinary devices accessible only to the user, running the One UI.


Obviously, these special capabilities don’t have much relevance for individual, private use, which makes Xcover Prot not really an attractive proposition. It is not as if the Exynos 9611 set, the 4/64 GB expandable memory package and the 6.3-inch FHD + resolution LCD display are not completely satisfactory, but considering the current offer, it is not at the official Hungarian price of HUF 164 thousand.


Bar compliance with IP68 and MIL-STD 810G standards, NFC and replaceable battery can still be strong arguments outside the corporate environment in addition to certain user habits. The Galaxy Tab Active3, wrapped in a rugged case, knows the same thing, with a two-year high-end (Exynos 9810), advanced S Pen features and desktop mode support (DeX), which is still very practical and deeply customizable to your needs, hundreds of thousands, but even in thousands of volumes, prices do not change at the retail level either. And everyone else can enjoy the usual software environment, features and quality without having to worry about the integrity of the device for a moment, no matter how harsh the conditions.
