Why does it remind me of the old siemens M65 and its other brother phones. The similarities on charger input's plastic cover and the camera cover are amazingly close.
had here at phones4u, ended up selling them for as little as £50, they were not as tough as first thought, samsung tough phone was better. it was also on "the gadget show" tv programme
I work for Jag Communications in the U.K and can confirm that this phone is very popular with those in the building (or similar) trade.
Not had a broken one back yet.
The only problem I have experienced is a technical or software issue with the phone.
Otherwise, very reliable and with a three year warranty 'if you can break it they'll replace it' from JCB you cant go wrong.
Any imaginative manufacturer can make a custom skin/protector for any fragile mobile phone out there and win big sales. Even the manufacturer of the phones themselves can create rugged, interchangeable, and tough protector housings for their own phones and sell them like any other accessories.
See this by Mobil.nu in Denmark. It's in a danish, but still funny when they have to shot it in the end to kill it.
Here they try other things to break it, but it just won't give in

1. First of all - there is a headset port, so why not include the headset in the first place? All other GSM handsets in Europe have a hands-free headset included.
2. Secondly - GSMArena team is not talking about bigger screen - instead they are talking about bigger screen font - do you know the difference?
3. And lastly - there are already military grade tough phones (unfortunately they are CDMA, not GSM) that have features such as a flashlight and a built-in compass (think Casio) and their toughness is not compromised.
So stop whining and go read another review.
On your reviews "final words", gsmarena hoped for wired headphones, larger screen and flashlight functionality. By reviewing the product, you should know by now that by adding more holes minimises its durability and toughness against weather conditions. Increasing the screen size also increases the vulnerabilty of the screens surface area. and lastly the flashlight functionality probably cannot withstand hard shakes, knocks and bumps.
My point is, the more features you add on XP1 the less tough it becomes.
After all, it is called "XP" like you said for Xtreme Performance.
Memory Card slot anyone? or a slide phone version? Lmao
this phone can kick every sinlge phones out there!!! in a fight of cause....
