Big and bold

Sonim XP1520 BOLT SL

from Fone Arena (7 months ago)

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is definitely a foot in the right direction from both Nokia and Microsoft and as a package, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is quite impressive. When the Windows Phone App store catches up with Android and iOS, this will definitely be a phone to aspire to. For the Lumia 1520 to succeed, ex... More

Call quality is just not good enough

Sonim XP Strike

from Phone Scoop (about 1 year ago)

The Sonim XP Strike presents a quandary. If rugged is what you need, it delivers in spades. It is one of the toughest phones I've jumped up and down on with my combat boots. Other than the survivability aspect, the Strike fumbles its core feature: phone calls. The quality of phone calls should be un... More

Extremely rugged, long battery life, three-year warranty

Sonim XP Strike

from PC Magazine (about 1 year ago)

The Sonim XP Strike is the toughest phone on Sprint. It also comes with Sonim's incredible three-year comprehensive warranty, and it's hard to put a price on peace of mind. That said, you can get the flip-style Kyocera DuraXT for half the price. It isn't quite as tough as the XP Strike, and it doesn... More

A basic bar phone that may just be the most durable phone the general market has ever seen

Sonim XP Strike

from PhoneArena (about 1 year ago)

Sonim has made a very basic phone that aims to do one thing well: withstand punishment. The XP Strike won’t win any beauty contests, the OS is slow and dated and the camera is horrible. None of that matters, but what does is that it was able to withstand our testing, which at times went above and be... More

The XP3300 Force makes the world's toughest line of phones even tougher

Sonim XP3300 Force

from PC Magazine (3 years ago)

The Sonim XP3300 Force is the toughest cell phone we have ever reviewed. Not only that, it has the longest talk time of any phone we've ever reviewed: a whopping 22 hours and 29 minutes. It also has the best warranty out there: a three-year comprehensive policy that even covers accidental damage. An... More

Sonim's new XP3300 Force is a cut above previous rugged models

Sonim XP3300 Force

from Cnet (3 years ago)

It's hard not to be impressed by a phone you can submerge in 6.5 feet of water for half an hour without it drowning, drop into antifreeze, and break out of a block of concrete without it sustaining damage. This is exactly the rough-and-tumble toughness that spurs rugged-phone maker Sonim Technologie... More

It's that phone that's always getting drenched, elephant-smooshed or shot, and surviving

Sonim XP3 Quest

from Gizmodo (5 years ago)

As you can see, this thing is a brick. It's a heavy, Tonka-yellow slab of plastic and rubber that sometimes makes calls, sends texts and visits a website or two. In a way it's the ultimate dumbphone: It's not annoyingly dumb—it's actually got a decently attractive UI, and it's worlds easie... More

Because it is rugged

Congratulations Sonim for a Guiness World Record phone.

Sonim XP1520 BOLT SL

(about 1 month ago)

Sonim Bolt XP 1520 is truly the toughest phone in the world and is now in the Guinness Book of World Records. And deservingly so! I am so tired of the little girlie phones around today that can't handle a little weather or a little rough play. Matter of fact, I think we are on the evolutionary line... More

Good,tough,basic phone

Sonim Armor

(10 months ago)

I got this phone hoping it would have some picture editing settings since it has a good camera. It turns out I was wrong, The cameras zoom just works in video mode. I am disappointed in the phone because I enjoyed using my phone to edit my pictures while sitting around waiting. It does have a nice c... More

DO NOT PURCHASE.....RUN from this Phone

Sonim XP Strike

(11 months ago)

They can tout about how rugged it is all day, phone operation is terrible(not user friendly at all), the sound quality is the worst I have had on a cell phone in over 15 years. DC functionality is terrible(most times you only catch every other word if at all). I can say it does work fine as a paperw... More

JUNK.....

Sonim XP5520 Bolt

(11 months ago)

Battery will not stay charged.. Even when not used, never been used yet. I've had it for over a year. Sent it to the company 3x and they said nothing is wrong with it. Only thing it's good for is an alarm clock because it's loud!!! It's supposed to be indestructible, we'll have to see!!

I opposite of love this phone because

Sonim XP Strike

(about 1 year ago)

What a piece of crap...it's like going back in time to 1994. Too small screen makes picture taking and viewing useless. Too small buttons make dialing a challenge. This phone is, however, quite durable...I have thrown it at least 20 times in frustration, and it still works! Do not buy this phon... More

Would not have if it wasn't a company issued phone

Sonim XP5520 Bolt

(about 1 year ago)

It does not come with a users manual. The only way to figure out what it does and how to use it is to either sit down and push every button/click every option until something happens or to go online and download 175 pages (!) that still doesn't explain what the icons across the top of the phone me...

I love this phone because it is rugged and has 3G. A very good basic phone

Sonim XP Strike

(about 1 year ago)

I had a little trouble in the beginning because the camera and flash was not in sync. Found out it had a self-timer on the camera function and when I turned the timer off it worked much better. This is found under options when the camera is activated, just keep scrolling through the options listed.

Good Idea, Poor Execution

Sonim XP3 Quest

from Amazon (3 years ago)

I really needed a tough phone and this one is but has several important defects. 1. The speakerphone is unusable in that you can hear the caller but they can't hear you. 2. The charger / ear piece port fails. I am on my second unit. 3. The website says that you are guaranteed a "an in store replac... More

Great rugged phone

Sonim XP3 Quest

from Amazon (4 years ago)

This phone is a great phone.... If your looking for other features.... Don't bother. Can't do picture mail, can't do video msging, can't do a lot of things. Well why the five star review? Because what it does, it does extremely well. I've had it on and used it daily for a week now and I'm only down... More
