Summary: The main feature of this phone is that it is the most durable cell phone in the world. You can literally do anything to it, it will survive. For example, you can submerge the phone in water and it will still work. You can also drop the phone and the screen won’t shatter. It is tested to meet military guidelines so it can also withstand high and low temperatures, shock and vibration.
Excellent, easy to use, durable phone that is worth every penny!

Summary: The is a very versatile, and durable phone. I purchased it because I want a basic phone; that is exactly what it is. Yes, it has web capabilities, speaker phone, bluetooth, etc... however, I didn't want to be forced into a data plan and this phone is perfect! My battery lasts over a week with normal use, and the functionality is very simple and easy. I recommend this phone to everyone!
Pros: Battery life is downright ridiculous. I charge my phone probably once a month. The phone is as rugged as any phone would ever need to be. Shockproof, waterproof, you name it. My phone also gets excellent reception relative to the other phones that I'
Cons: It's hardly a con, but this phone has the features of a circa 1992 Motorola flip phone. However, if you're looking at one of these you already know that going into it.
If you need a phone that can survive the elements this is a great choice.

Summary: This phone is not designed to do everything, It is not designed to be a smartphone and handle internet, multimedia, and applications with flying colors. It was designed to fit a niche market, durability and ease of use, and it excels at what it does.
Pros: This is a very rugged phone. I've dropped it from 2 stories up onto concrete and numerous times from hand level onto concrete or asphalt and it works fine. The battery life is so long I forget that it does still periodically need to be charged. It does w
Cons: Instruction book is not very good. Have not yet figured out how to speed dial and there only appears to be 8 or so available numbers to speed dial. No simple way to mute a call if you're on a telecon. No ability to increase font size, but there's enough
Summary: Finally a REAL heavy duty phone. Not a lightweight pretender like Motorolla's Tundra.It feels substantial and it is. No flip screen to break and I don't have to put it back in my truck as soon as a few raindrops fall. I'd forgotten what it felt like to have a battery last three or four days. If you want to watch movies and send messages get something fancy but if you want to be able to work or play outside and make phone calls when it counts, get a Sonim.
