Sonim XP3300 Force rugged mobile phone


Review California-based phone manufacturer Sonim may not be an instantly recognisable name but it's no stranger to making robust mobile phones. It was behind the first JCB phone and currently builds the S1 for Land Rover. The XP3300 Force is Sonim's...

As tough as they come, the XP3300 is the handset of choice if your work or play takes you to places insurance companies and the sane fear to tread. The handset is near enough indestructible, the battery life can be measured in geological time and you...

Sonim XP3300 Force review:


It's hard not to be impressed by a phone you can submerge in 6.5 feet of water for half an hour without it drowning, drop into antifreeze, and break out of a block of concrete without it sustaining damage. This is exactly the rough-and-tumble toughness...

The Sonim XP3300 Force has added strong call quality, a camera, and more apps to its hallmark ruggedness and durability.

A small screen, tiny text, and confusing user interface mar the user experience on the Sonim XP3300 Force. The dial pad is too cramped for large hands wearing worker's gloves. It's also rather costly.

Despite some design flaws, Sonim's new XP3300 Force is a cut above previous rugged models.

Sonim XP3300 Force (Unlocked)


Voice quality is just average and its features can stand to see some improvement, but this is the ultimate phone to get for users that need a device which is virtually indestructible.The $499 XP3300 Force isn't sold through a major U.S. carrier, but...

Toughest phone available. Longest talk time we've ever seen. Industry-leading three-year comprehensive warranty

Limited features. Occasionally frustrating selection key layout

The Sonim XP3300 Force makes the world's toughest line of phones even tougher, and promises some enterprise-friendly apps to boot.

Sonim XP3300 Force is officially the world’s toughest phone


We raise our glasses to the resilience of Sonim, rolling out phone after phone, each one tougher than the other. The company has finally salvaged some major glory, in the form of the XP3300 Force that has been declared as the world's toughest phone....

Sonim XP3300 Force


A review of the toughest phone form Sonim yet, the SonimXP3300 Force. In the first part of our review we take a look at the phone's super rugged exterior and user interface.

The Sonim XP3300 is a truly excellent phone and it is also truly expensive. The $400 price tag might be rather steep, but remember this phone is virtually indestructible, it is used by Batman, and comes with a three year, no questions asked warranty.

Guinness Book of World Records Biggest piece of junk!


When I received this phone the corners of the gorilla glass were chipped to buggery and the charge meter that shows how much charge is left didn't work. If I hadn't of gotten the ACCC involved they wouldn't have honoured their so called "comprehensive...

Chipped gorilla glass and the phone meter didn't work.

You cannot kill this tough phone


I purchased the Sonim Xp3300 Tradie phone on a $49 cap plan from telaustralia ... a bit over 3 months ago. In the past 5 years I have destroyed 11 phones in my work as a site welder. This phone has been in mud. snow and covered in concrete but never...

Waterproof, loudspeaker you can hear, dust and shock proof

Not available as a Next G phone but Optus network suits me anyway.
