So on paper the XP1 is the toughest phone on the market. if you count out the test the Gadget Show did a little while back.
Being Sonim's first ever phone it’s not bad.
Hopefully the second one will bridge the gap

Is A25 as tough as Sonim XP1? IP certification is only for dust and water resistance I guess.. I like to know the actual toughness like the shock resistance
Anyone tried an Airo A25 ? Looks like its the ultamite kick ass phone that might survive a nuke (well not the EMP though).Anyway too pricy for me .
Does anybody know if Sonim are working on replacement for the XP1?
Thinking of getting the B2700
