Summary: I bought a XP3300 force. After 1 year the battery can't last more than a day. I checked the website and it actually said accessories like battery won't last more than a year. I did send email to ask about it (to the provided support email) but no one replied. After that I had to call them, but there's no one answer. I tried to dig for more phone numbers (from other countries' support phone number) and finally got 1 number that worked.
Summary: Have a look at the Sonim facebook page and you'll see how poor the customer service is on this phone. It's a great idea backed by a useless warranty. My phones SIM stopped registering after 2 months, this they fixed (I had to pay shipping), then the buttons started pealing, this they won't repair under warranty as it's COSMETIC, now the black bubber started pealing, not just a little, basically after one year of office use and one try in the pool and the phone looks like...
Summary: Very nice phone, in the beginning it seemed to b bit bulky but now its 2nd day and i have got used to it and now fits comfortably in the hand and holds much better than my other phone iphone 4s, (this phone cant be compared with iPhone but Sonim has another purpose and is on top in it), easy to use keypad, and the phone is as described, the features that are mentioned are upto the mark and the phone is really tough, Speaker clarity is good and i can hear even in the most...
The Sonim XP3300: Throw me around, and I will smile at you

Excerpt: You can easily recognize a smartphone owner by the panicky way he looks for a power plug. Not so with the XP3300: its battery life is epic, allowing you to go without external juice for two weeks or so. As I work in an office much of the time, I mostly leave my phone in my bag - even at its loudest setting, the speakers freak out my co-workers due to the volume. But best of all is its durability.
Pros: Epic build quality, Call quality, Battery life, Three-year, no-questions-asked unlimited warranty, GPS, Responsive interface, VERY LOUD RINGTONES, Text input
Cons: Sometimes confusing interface details, VERY LOUD RINGTONES, Only 2MP Camera, Pricey
Summary: Very cool rugged cell phone, I also own one XP3.20 Quest but this one has much better features and a bit bigger display. Had a hard time figuring out why I can't get my JAVA apps to work or my internet but turns out that this model works only with T-Mobile's $30 plan, and once I activated that one instead of $10 one that was for basic phones it works great.
Summary: I bought this for my boyfriend. Very useful piece of kit, the only thing is I find it too bulky and big. Anyway, he went swimming with it in the pocket so he lost it. Advice for the future, just because is waterproof doesn't means you should go swimming in the sea with it on your pocket!
Summary: The physical aspects of the phone are the selling point for me. Seriously tough and waterproof Very loud ringtone and speaker Exceptional (compared to modern phones) battery life Very useful single LED torch Decent camera The software is probably a bit low tech compared to modern phones, web access is slow and I've never worked out how to set up the email (but that may just be me) everything works well enough or what it is, T9 texting, basic calendar calculator alarm...
Summary: After losing several cheaper mibiles in the washing machine, or through dropping on hard ground, this product was just what I was looking for. All my work is outdoors and physical and I needed a phone to match. All going well so far. Great screen and sound.
Summary: I bought this phone for my husband who's a builder after he broke the Motorola defy with in 4 weeks of having it.It may not do all the fancy things an android/iphone can do but it is practically indestructable. It has large keys which is a blessing for men with fingers like sausages, it's been knocked of the scaffolding, sat on and covered in plaster, Normally i would expect my husband to have to replace his phone every 2/3 months but this has lasted 10 months and still...
Summary: tried two of these phones now. the old sonim was quite frankly pathetic. only lasted a fortnight before the thing wouldn,t turn on but on seeing the new specs and all the hype about the new version i thought i,d try again. what a mistake. was faulty straight out of the box. you,d think for three hundred quid they'd at least test the thing works before packaging it.faulty keypad lighting, constantly turning the lights on and off, then the whole phone turned itself off.
