Samsung has a knack for finding those little niche markets that others seem to shy away from. That’s how the Galaxy Note came to be and that’s what their Rugby series is doing. The original Galaxy Rugby was very durable but lacked the hardware to really make it a viable smartphone. However, the sequel, the Rugby LTE, really brought durability and functionality together.
And according to some users, the phone has just gotten that much better with the roll out of android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Again, Jelly Bean brings a few new additions to the OS, the most obvious being Project Butter and Google Now. Project Butter really helps in making things that much smoother and Google Now is a constantly evolving search function that I tend to use fairly regularly.
So if you’ve got a Galaxy Rugby LTE in hand, head into the Settings–>About Device–>Software Update–>Update to see if there’s an update waiting for you. Let us know if you get it and which carrier you’re on.
