The Xcover B2710 looks almost like every other candy bar format phone you have ever seen, the only noticeable difference is on the sides, which have thick rubber coating to protect the the ports from water and shock. The phone is made from a combination of polyurethane, plastic and heavy duty glass for the screen and camera lens.
One major design flaw exists, and that is the lack of a microSD card slot on the outside, the slot is inside the battery cover and you have to open it to insert the card.
The phone scores well in the weight department as it weighs only 115 grams, light enough to carry around your neck or pocket without feeling cumbersome.The dimensions are also well rounded at 120.7 x 53 x 17.9 mm, with the only complaint being the rather intrusive lanyard eyelet.
On the front we have a 2 inch tough glass screen with 256 thousand colors supported and a pixel resolution of 240 x 320. Beneath the screen we have a traditional keypad topped by central a D-pad for scrolling which in turn is surrounded by four buttons, namely the forward, back, receive call and end call buttons.
To the right of the phone we have the microUSB and charger ports, while the left is solely occupied by the volume rocker. Which is actually very enjoyable to press as it is tactile and rubbery at the same time.The back has only three things, the lock mechanism that keeps the back cover in place, a coin is required to open it.
Then we have the loudspeaker grills which are waterproof and finally the very large 2 MP camera lens, and you can't miss the fact it is a 2MP camera because Samsung have written “2 MEGAPIXELS” directly underneath the lens.
Finally at the top we find a big eyelet so you can hang the phone around your neck and next to it the flashlight. That's all there is to the top, nothing more.
