A rugged phone made to withstand a lot of punishment

Sonim XP7

from Android Authority (3 months ago)

The Sonim XP7 will set you back $650 off-contract, which is certainly very steep for what is essentially a mid-range smartphone in its specifications and features. To justify this price point, you really have to want its rugged features, and even that may not make it compelling enough for most users... More


All your communication needs in one, heavy duty package

Sonim XP7

from Phone Scoop (3 months ago)

The Sonim XP7 lives up to its billing as a rugged Android smartphone that can go anywhere and come back unscathed.The XP7 may be bulky and heavy, but the size and weight pay dividends when it comes to the phone's toughness factor. I punished the XP7 and it survived everything I threw at it. The hard... More


As rugged as smartphones come, complete with a comprehensive warranty against damage

Sonim XP6

from PC Magazine (4 months ago)

Don't choose the Sonim XP6 for its robust design; choose it for the robust warranty behind it. The 3-year comprehensive warranty covers any manufacturing defects, hardware failure, and even accidental damage. The XP6 is rugged, but it's not indestructible, which makes that warranty even more crucial... More


The toughest ruggedized smartphone we've seen yet

Sonim XP7

from PC Magazine (5 months ago)

Drop an iPhone or a BlackBerry Passport$499.99 at Amazon once, face down, on concrete, and you've cracked the screen. That's what sets tough, clunky smartphones like the XP7 or the Kyocera Brigadier apart from the rest: You don't have to put them in an Otterbox so they can survive your rough-and-tum... More


Big and bold

Sonim XP1520 BOLT SL

from Fone Arena (about 1 year 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 (2 years 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 (2 years 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 (2 years 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 (4 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 (4 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


You can't hear the two way radio in a running truck zello on my smart phone is better and cheeper

Radio part of phone as turned off by company it just could not be heard, not even close to the old mike phones


Tough Phone. Finally a phone that is not a toy. Usable, durable.

Sonim XP7

(2 months ago)

I have use this phone now for three weeks since retiring my Omnia i910. I had compared it to the Samsung S5 Active and the Rugby II. Although it does not spec as well on the camera and processor, and lacks a removable battery and SD card slot it does outperform in other areas. The speakerphone... More

Attn: Glenn Graham_12006 - Just A Few Questions...

Sonim XP7

(6 months ago)

Reviews of this bad-boy have so far been very sparse, so I enjoyed reading your review. Just a few questions, though: 1) How's the call quality? Any dropped calls? 2) How's the picture/video quality? Any filters/editing tools included? 3) How's the speed and smoothness of the web browser? Turns o... More

We just picked up our first Android Sonim XP7700 (Dubbed the XP7) through our Telus business partner. Unbelievable quality: Built-in 4AH Battery (4000Mha) gives me a solid 3 days without a charge. Watertight and drop proof (smash it against the concrete and it's fine). The entire phone is encase... More

Congratulations Sonim for a Guiness World Record phone.

Sonim XP1520 BOLT SL

(10 months 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

(about 1 year 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
