    Re: Samsung Rugby 3 vs convoy 3 vs gusto

    I was just looking for a replacement phone for my Casio G'zone Rock. I picked the Convoy 3 due to it's styling and 1300 mAh battery. I handled a Convoy 4 the other day and it is noticeable thicker and heavier (specs below match the Convoy 3 nicely with the G'zone Rock - a tad thinner at .82 in compared to the G'zone .9 in, and the same weight). The Rugby 3 is an AT&T phone and I don't like the styling much - heavier and thicker too. I did try out a Kyocera DuraXA plus - ebay purchase, tried it for a day with Verizon and didn't like it at all - Convoy 3 is thinner and lighter.

    The Gusto's 1000 mAh battery didn't interest me too much, though that may change after I've used the Convoy 3 a while. 1000 mAh is not too much off from the G'zone Rock's 1050 mAh.

    I've always liked the ruggedness of my milspec G'zone Rock as I've dropped it a few times, so the milspec phones interest me (Rugby and Convoy). Saw a video review of the Motorola Barrage and it's huge, the thickest at .93 in - not for me.

    Got my Convoy 3, activated it, and it's alright. Not as robust as my ole Casio g'zone rock. We'll see how long the 1300 mAh battery lasts.
