    5.0 out of 5 stars sonim xp3 7 Jun 2009
    This phone lived up to all the hype behind it.
    Its a bit pricey for a basic phone, but if you need a dependable mobile in harsh environments or work places this is the toughest phone you could own, (I dropped mine other day by accident onto kitchen floor tiles and it just bounced like rubber).
    The speaker is very loud to be heard in noisy places.
    The led torch is very handy.
    The battery life is absolutely amazing only charged mine once in 10 days (mostly on standby but a few calls)
    Its a little bulky and heavy, but it fits nice in the hand.
    If you need a tough phone like this, go for this one.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Toughphone gets TOUGHER 16 May 2009
    This product meets all expectations, however, Amazon sent the toughphone in a large, floppy unsecured envelope that hadn't been tightly wrapped. Luckily I received my toughphone despite the sticky flap of the envelope being WIDE open.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 1 Sep 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this phone in Dec 2009 for my husbands christmas present. My husband is an outdoor kinda guy who needs a all terrain type of mobile phone and this phone seeemed to fit the bill. All was fine until earlier this year when the phone started playing up. It was a case of when he was making a phone call ....he could hear me,,,but I couldnt hear him....which is not good if you are stuck up a mountain or in a ditch somewhere !!.
    Credit where credit is due, the sellers ''Avides'' did everything they could. They sent the phone to be tested and repaired and it came back better than I sent it. But, last week the phone started to play up yet again. I am going to contact Somin to see what they can do for me ....so watch this space.

    I sent an email and Sonim's response was .....that they personally do not deal with these issues and sent a link for ''Authorised Sonim dealers'' which would not open !! The way I got the authorised dealer list was to go to the home page and click on the ''buy'' tag. that produced a short list of dealers in the uk.

    Anyway, The phone was sent away yet again and repaired by one of the authorised Sonim dealers this time. Fingers crossed all is well again.....my husband can make and recieve phone call now with no problems

    So, Buyer beware !! these phone are not all they are cracked up to be

    5.0 out of 5 stars Finaly found the phone I want 2 July 2010
    By Tony B
    Ever since I first got a mobile phone, back when they came with semaphore and a morse light, I've wanted a phone that will, work at midnight up a mountain went I'm cold wet tired freezing and scared half to death. Well at last I've found it! A friend dropped his in a tank of disiel fuel. When it came out and was dried, partly by the language, the rest by a cloth, with some trepidation it was tried, it just worked, no fuss no drama.
    It dosen't play games, it won't sernade you with music. It makes phone calls and sends texts, time after time, after time.... in cold wet , hot dry and if you are hanging upside down.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Just not that great ... 15 Jun 2009
    By Alan Moore VINE VOICE
    Verified Purchase
    I really wanted to like the XP3 ...

    Fed up with mobiles falling into the '1 year lifecycle' bracket or too precious for so much as a fast bike ride, I decided to return to basics and seek the ultimate durable mobile.

    Don't get me wrong, the Sonim XP3 is one really tough mother but after getting one delivered I quickly decided it was just so outrageously large (actually massive!) and lacking in key features that it would never appeal to me.

    I DO need a tough phone. I cycle to work and frequently use my phone in cold, wet weather. However, I also work in an office and need to operate a phone in silent vibration mode (which the XP3 does not offer) as well as rely on new voice mail (which due to a software bug the XP3 will not inform you of).

    Ok, these are maybe on the wimp side of the XP3's capabilities but I expect a phone of this category and (certainly) price to do the mobile basics flawlessly. I suspect most users would describe these as major irritations, even if involved in Sonim's stereotypical description of challenging mobile environment(s) such as construction site or serious adventure sports. SMS messaging is also a cluggy affair.

    On the plus side, the ergonomics are well though out. Its unlikely to slip from your grasp and the phone's external speaker appeared loud and clear. Call quality seemed ok, although given the device is primarily designed to get volume / clarity across it was a little disappointing. Similarly, I didn't think the screen faired too well in direct sunlight. Ok, that's a criticism of many mobiles BUT it has been solved on specific phones (ala Sony Ericsson T650) and I was disappointed to find it was not the case here.

    In summary, there is undoubtedly a market out there for the XP3, but I think Sonim will have to produce designs which closer match the more acceptable ergonomics of something like the superb Samsung B2100 before punters will seriously bite.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe robust but other bits don't last. 16 Mar 2011
    By JL
    I bought an XP3 Enduro some four years ago and it is now kaput.
    The battery was the final straw and while the phone receives and still sends messages no one can hear when I talk although I can hear them.
    Why not replace the battery - the last one discharged when I was trying to charge it all the time. Now the colouring on the characters has turned white and the letters/nos are unreadible Better to change the phone altogether. Poor quality for such an expensive gadget. Endure means tolerate as well and I wouldn't endure this phone again.
