Not really that strong as a phone. Very hard to get costumer support. Spent 2 days trying to get support . gotta see how they respect there warranty.
NotEveryoneIsYou, 04 Sep 2011Nope. A lot of people like me prefer phones for phone calls call and texting and nothing else... moreRead my last comment dude... I accept Not everyone thinks like me and they dont need to... After all we are human right??? And I am not criticising the phone ok??? Its just my opinion...

The media tells people that having more is better, the latest greatest is great.
Just because the majority is doing a certain thing a certain way, doesn't necessarily mean it's the best thing to do for everyone.
TechnoFreak, 04 Sep 2011I understand you are a climber and you would surely find this phone very useful... But more th... moreNope.

This phone is obviously not designed for the smart phone market. I work in a phone shop, and have at least 10 people a day ask if we have tradie phones, because they are builders or something similar, where they need their phones to just be able to survive the job, NOT something iphones can do. Good on them for applying to a different maket.
mikke, 03 Sep 2011o you Iphone lovers, to the clever man saing that there isn't any apps let me tell you, I have... moreDude, this really is not iPhone vs Sonim.. I accept the phone is tough and maybe good but it cant beat the high end Androids and iPhones on features... And truth is this phone is not made to do any competition with Android or Apple or any other manufacturer out there... It is made so as to be tough... And it succeeds...
o you Iphone lovers, to the clever man saing that there isn't any apps let me tell you, I have around 80 apps and many of them I use every day just as my boss use iphone 4. I have youtube downloater, compas, gmail app, bible, dictionarry in 30 languages, video editing app, nimbuzz, fring, google talk, I download mpg4 or mp3 from youtube with java app. I recomend you chek before you talk, because it's a java phone and format jad, and jar are alot older than your iphones, that means that there are many jad and jar app for Sonim phones.
I have Sonim xp2 Spirit and I have net all the time on it, I use java apps, and I can even watch 30 hour video mpg4 format, the Sonim phones are the best and nothing is better...... Mikke
not bad for some people...they use phone for calling and texting...and i don't think this phone is for everyone.
C'mon guys...its a small company trying hard to publicize their products. Good for them.
I bet i can drop a smartphone off the empire state building and it survive enough for me to use it
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2011and yes, normal day use would be fine with a case. but this phone is NOT for normal day use. t... moreI understand you are a climber and you would surely find this phone very useful... But more than 90% of consumers want to buy the best features and you cant deny that too... And ya i didnt say phones are not for calling or texting... Thats the basic features... But you want more in a phone than that rite????
TechnoFreak, 02 Sep 2011Thats what i said before... This is a phone for sports enthusiasts... Not for tech-savy people... moreahh! so not only are you short sighted, your a pretentious tw@ as well? 'sports enthusiasts' makes no sense. firefighters, thats not a sport. oil rig? also not a sport. this phone is for people that want to be sure their phone does not break. its that simple.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2011and yes, normal day use would be fine with a case. but this phone is NOT for normal day use. t... moreThats what i said before... This is a phone for sports enthusiasts... Not for tech-savy people... Or for commoners...
TechnoFreak, 02 Sep 2011Instead take a case for your phone... That would be much better for normal day use...and yes, normal day use would be fine with a case. but this phone is NOT for normal day use. thats the point in it! or are you unaware that the world contains lumberjacks, window cleaners of massive office buildings, oil rig workers, rock climbers etc. I'm a climber, and i would rather thake this phone with me when im up a cliff face than my HTC, as this is more likely to survive if i came off, AND i'd still be able to ring mountain rescue. stop being so short sighted, it irritating
TechnoFreak, 02 Sep 2011The whole point of a phone is just to make calls and text??? Then why do high-end phones which... moreso...wait, let me get this straight. you saying the whole point of a MOBILE PHONE is not to be a PHONE? so why is it people who have a tablet (which does everything a modern phone does, except the phone bit) ALSO buy a phone? a lot of the customers i deal with use their phone to call, and text. Of course phones that do extra stuff sell better. im not disputing that fact. i pointing out that the whole reason behind having a phone is, at the very basic level, to allow you to call and text. that is the point in having it. again, if it wasnt, people would just buy a tablet.
