an s4 active costs 150 euro less is a hell more of a phone and with an optional 12 euro tempered glass on the screen it can whthstand almost anything.
mohd gisam, 26 Nov 2014memory too small.. why not 32gb builtin.Hmm not that you mentioned it, it doesn't seem to have an sd card slot (Nothing mentioned in the specifications' page in Sonim's website), so it'll be uselsss. I thought they did't copy from the fashionphones making totally unnecessary compromises, but i guess i've been wrong
I dont know what are u trying to say, guys...
the specialities of this phone is thoughtness, durability and for extreme conditions, for some poeple who works on north pole or somewhere at arctic circle they might doesnt need a phone like moto g, xperia e or even iphone series, I dont think they will care about quad, hexa or even double octa cores, 4gb ram, 889 ppi...
BS phone, 26 Nov 2014Put a case on a MOTO E and save your money.Yea, except you'll have to also get an external battery, external speaker...
Oh come on:
- Snapdragon 400 SoC with 1.2GHz quad-core CPU
- a gig of RAM
- WVGA display
how is that expected to sell!?
Anomynous, 26 Nov 2014Whats with this device, it even has a terrible display. I cant even remember what year Xperia ... moreThat's because it's not another fashionphone and it's deliberately made to have the strongest battery and not meaningless crap. It's made so you can count on it
SumairSaqib, 26 Nov 2014will it blend? :pno... but if u throw at people head, u will kill them ~
you can buy another phone with same specs for $100. so they are selling the chassis alone for $478 or let's say $400 counting they're giving a couple of gadgets and aftersales warranty. this is overpriced.
The Casio G'zOne CA-201L still has some better specs and its also Sonim XP7 tough competitor excluding the android versions.
Whats with this device, it even has a terrible display. I cant even remember what year Xperia X10 came out but this one has the same pixel density, doesnt even come close to the already low density of iPhone 5/5s/5c. And quad A7, wow, what could be more mediocre than that, but still the most outrageous is 1GB RAM, we know Android doesnt work well at all with 1GB, entry level Androids have 1GB, like Xperia E3 (also with LTE) and Moto E, wtf...
Ruggedness and big battery is good but making the phone so weak on the inside is surely a mistake that will effectively stop this phone from being popular outside kickstarter niche markets. Its to expensive for impulsive buyers and too expensive for well informed buyers. Just get an Otter case for a good phone.
