PC Magazine

The Sonim XP6 is as rugged as smartphones come, complete with a comprehensive warranty against damage, but the Android experience suffers on its tiny display.

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 for workers who don't have time to worry about the safety of their smartphone. The biggest stumbling block is the minuscule display that makes using the Android software a chore at times. The XP6 really is a phone in the traditional sense first, and a pocket-sized computer second.

Nice phone, but disposable

Nice phone, but if you break something you're in trouble. Zero parts availability, and they wouldn't honor their "warranty". I had to throw away a six week old phone.
