Has met all expectations!


My Land Rover S1 has certainly lived up to my expectations. I purchased the phone two years ago from tesco (not available as upgrade from orange). It has been in constant use since, sixteen hours per day, still on original battery and am getting two ...

Shocking, dire and unreliable


I live an active outdoor lifestyle - between my work in Construction, my family background in Farming and my hobby of Mountain Biking, so I thought that this phone would be the ideal tool. This thing is rudimentary at best, the technology inside is d...

The battery is a joke


Riding off road on my motorbike the S1 promised to be the right mobile phone for my outdoor activities. However I couldn't use it at all as the battery doesn't last for an hour. First I thought this problem might be related to an individual defect of...

battery life doesn't live up to Sonim's statement


I bought the Landrover Sonim from Tesco last week and within 2 days the battery started to lose a full charge within a few hours. I then couldn't receive or make calls and took it back and cancelled the contract as I was told it may be a problem havi...

Recently purchased the S1 and was looking forward to a nice indestructable phone but seems I am not alone with battery problems. On my 3rd battery now and it is still poor, I am now in process of trying to get a refund, after only 21 days I have had ...

excited to get a Land Rover Phone, what a disappointment


So excited to get a Land Rover Phone. What a disappointment. We are now waiting for the 4th one since start of October. The battery charge holds for less than a day if you are lucky, having only made one phone call and nothing else. The speaker volum...
