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...

Really disappointed with the battery life

 

Really disappointed with the battery life. I get 2 days maximum and it doesn't charge if it is turned on. So every night I have to turn it off for the night just so I can charge it and use it the next day - not good. From reading these reviews I find...

I'm about to send my 3rd phone back now due to faults

 

Ok, the phone is tough as described, although the screen really does scratch very easily, mine got a scratch the first time it was in my pocket.If you have the GPS on, then the battery will last a day. If its on standby, the most I've had out of...

Consumer review by: Sheddy (rightmobilephone.co.uk)

great phone for technophobes who work or play in harsh environments

 

My wife bought me the Landrover phone for Christmas as Orange do not provide this phone as an upgrade. The cover for the interface/recharge port is tricky to close effectively so I doubt the phones ability to stay submerged for 30 mins without damage...

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...

seems I am not alone with battery problems

 

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...
