As a person who killed 3 S60's and had the warranty fail the third time that really make a difference with tough phones
Phone built is okay, its too bulky on your pocket. Its running on Android 7.0 Nougat so its 2 years old compared to the latest android OS available. Using qwerty keyboards on the right side corner notice a delay for about 30 secs/per character. Downloading a third party keyboard will solve the issue. For $700.00 phone i'll go with known leading brands then get a hardened enclosure for protection.
I'd like it better for my job, if it had the full "Class1/Div1" like the xp7 came with, but this might still be usable. Working in a chemical-plant has a lot of restrictions.

Replacable 4900 mAh battery?!?! Holy Smoke! That's not bad. One of the few, I'd say.
Anonymous, 22 Jun 2018No, you can't. I t does not support B71 for TMobile as of nowOf course he can. And can you name all the phones that support band 71? ItÂ’s a short list.... two. Only Samsung S9 and S9+. Band 71 is being deployed but hardly a deal breaker is onealready has working T-mo service.

I wonder if this can be purchased unlocked for T-Mobile. The main selling point for me is the removable battery and the host of sensors it has. I suppose it could come out with Oreo soon, but that remains to be seen. I would rather it have 6gb over 4, but I don't play games on phones. My view is function first and damn appearances. Hopefully it won't be loaded with bloatware either.
I want this phone.
I just bought 2 of these phones through at&t here in the US. I was able to test run these phones before buying them. Very rugged phone. These are not for the average person to own. These phones are great on construction sites, fire, police, towing industry. Any where you could get caught up in the out door environment. I put this phone to the test dropping it and running it over with a 14,000 lb. Truck. Even took it in the swimming pool. All I can say I'm in shock this phone held up had a couple little scratches but that was it. This phone even comes with a 3 year warranty from Sonim that they will replace it for even accidental damages. I can't wait till my permant phone gets here on Wednesday. This will be the best 700.00 phone I have ever bought I know this for sure.
I have Cat S60, and I am very dissapointed in it. It is tough no doubt about that but leaves a lot do be desired as far as functionality. Too many bugs, no sensitivity adjustment, the audio jack has never worked and the bluetooth is a joke! $620 for the Cat
How bad could the xp8 be?
$700 and a three year warranty isn't too awful bad when you think about how many glass sissy phones I would go thru in three years.
My last phone was a kyocera dura force damn good phone, lost it in the mountains.
I will probably be buying a duraforce pro soon,,, $270
Give the xp8 some time in service and see what folks think of it.
Goodfellow, 04 Apr 2018The phone looks and spec are good. The only drawback would be the price.overpriced 700 $
Ahmed, 02 Apr 2018Just 60% S-T-B-Ratio? It is bezelless era, please cmon!This phone is not meant for people who like a design statement from a phone nor for people working from 9 to 5 at the office.
Personally I would prefer the Cat S60 because of the Infrared camera but this rugged and aolid phone looks ok too.

mr.rish, 03 Apr 2018Only battery is so good.
Man when you will be working as Caveman, Firemen, Or in mountain emergency service this phone wil be ideal for you.
But people like you can only criticize.
I understand that for a lazy person who can sleep all the day this briick isnt too shiny.
But maybe when you woke up into the real world you will realize some pople needs just phone like this.
