Expert review by: Alex Colon (

Sonim XP1300 CORE (Unlocked)


The Sonim XP1300 CORE is only a decent feature phone, but it is the toughest phone we've ever seen.

Blocks out background noise. Spectacular battery life. Virtually indestructible. Three-year, no-questions-asked replacement warranty.

Voice quality is merely decent. Limited features. No significant improvements if you already own a Sonim.

Multimedia, Durability and Conclusions The XP1300 has no camera. The phone comes with just over 100MB of internal memory for storage, along with a MicroSD card slot. While Sonim says it supports up to 8GB cards, I was able to use my 16GB and 32GB cards...
