Sonim XP3 Quest (unlocked) review:


The Sonim XP3 Quest is the update to the Sonim XP1 that we reviewed last year. If you thought the XP1 was strong--and believe us when we say that it was--the XP3 goes a step further by being completely waterproof like the G'zOne handsets . If that...

The Sonim XP3 is extremely rugged and durable. It offers GPS support and decent call quality.

The Sonim XP3 lacks multimedia messaging. Speakerphone calls were average.

We're astounded by the lack of multimedia messaging, but the Sonim XP3 Quest should withstand most torture tests.

Sonim XP3.20 Quest


Go ahead, chuck the Sonim XP3.20 Quest against the sidewalk. This handset can take it—and more.

Super-duper tough. Three-year, no-questions-asked replacement warranty.

Internet speeds are very slow. Prototype may not have been up to final specs. ; Watch the Sonim XP3.20 in action!

Sonim XP3 Quest


Are you someone with a really bad temper and feel like throwing your phone at times, like me? Are you clumsy and drop things constantly? Do you take unexpected dips in the pool? Are you a thrill seeker that likes white water rafting and climbing,...

One plus about the ringer on the XP3 is that it is very loud, which is good to have if you are in loud places or outdoors. Besides the ringtones, you can also customize the XP3 with different alert tones, greetings, wallpapers, screen savers, and...

it is the only phone to consider if you work or play in tough conditions


Buy this phone for what it does best and you will have no complaints. Think of it as a basic communications device for harsh conditions. If you want something to take pictures with, this is not the phone for you. Yes it has a camera but it is fr...

Sonim XP# Quest Pro


Purchased Sonim XP3 Quest Pro two and a half years ago, I am a Marine Boilermaker Welder working in dry docks and inside ships in the harshest, dustiest and noisiest conditions possable at times. This Sonim has served me better than any tradies phone I...

Reliable and rugged. Recieve reception where other phones cannot. Battery life incredable. Back up service is better than good and you talk to a real person when you call Sonim Australia not a machine.

The talk speaker may be this phones only weak link as far as I can tell. It has for the second time in 3 years started to fail me. But having said this in all fairness I have to state that the speakers do cop a hiding with them being constantly filled...

Out to lunch on this one


I have been waiting for a very basic rugged phone for quite some time now, for this fits the bill for sure in terms of ruggedness, the best that I have seen. It really is built that well.I currently have a Motorola Titanium Razr, that has been a ...
