Sonim XP6 (AT&T)


The Sonim XP6 is as rugged as smartphones come, complete with a comprehensive warranty against damage, but the Android experience suffers on its tiny display.

doesnt get any better


So far I have gone 30 days on battery still strong, idiots that complain about memory, 32 gigabytes is plenty, you can fit 200 songs for an all night shift with 32 gigabyte, you can fit a boatload of pictures, built in high memory means you will never...
