Yes, I'd recommend this product.

This is the only phone I have not broken. I love the long extended battery life, I literally charge it every other day. I've dropped this phone more than I can count and it still works.

Extremely solid and easy to use

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

It does everything any other phone can do,. Your just not going to break it if you have a mishap. It has excellent speakers, nice camera, dedicated ptt button along with 2 other programmable buttons . Takes under water photos and accepts the 250 gig sd card. Has great reception and could easily be used as a weapon should the need arise. This phone is thick and has some weight to it but i find it the easyest to hang on to and use. It runs on android 10 and does not invade my privacy in ways other manufacturers phones do.

Lantz · 1 months ago

Phone is pretty much undestructable.As a tow truck driver I work in the rain and mud alot. I have dropped it in flood water, snow, ditches , and got it so muddy I had to spray it off with a hose.I have dropped it on concrete from 8' or more several times.It is loud ........the down falls are the camera is not that great.Earpiece on all rugged phones is lacking.Operating system hits an occasional glitch and has to be restarted.Battery life is great.

Great Idea-Poor Execution

3 out of 5 rating

Johnny 5 · 1 months ago

I've had this phone about a year and a half. What I like about the phone, replaceable battery, rugged case, waterproof, bright display, loud audio, lots of options. What I don't like, screen has a haze around the edge, finger print detector is terrible, camera is mediocre and the lens is all scratched up, firmware is glitchy and I have to restart it.

Sonim XP8 is durable but is a horrible phone.

HDMOdessaFL · 2 months ago

Answers calls without me touching the phone. Cuts off calls when a 2nd call comes in. It just sent abnoxious GIFs to two family members. This phone is awful.

Best phone I ever had,

my phone · 2 months ago

I loved that phone right up until they went to 4G . My phone said 4G but the phone store said it didn't work. But today at AT&t phone store I said my phone's just like that one on display talking about my Sony XP 8 she looked at it she tried to get it going she said I need to call 611 and they couldn't get it going I just bought the phone in December got 9 months yeah about 9 months out of it . But I recon I'll buy another. If you buy a used one how can you tell if it will work or not, or what should I ask them?

If you want flashy this ain't it

5 out of 5 rating

T57usa · 2 months ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

If you're looking for something durable this is it, I've beaten on phone for 18 months and haven't come lose to killing it. It's functional and works well. I don't need "5G" nor do I want it for that matter problem solved. It's big and clunky so if you need fast and flashy buy a worm phone or a Kimchee pot. But then I loved my star tac I couldn't kill that either. No more cracked screens and burnt out batteries and it's half the price of the glitz and glamor phones just not sexy lol

Maintenance Guy · 3 months ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I had a Sonim for 2 years now ( And its finally payed fore ) I had it replaced 3 times on my 3rd one now been over a year. The bad and don't know why screen will just go Black for a while only this is about 1 time a month I take battery out and put back in fine for a few weeks ????. Menu will reset volume on its own. Bluetooth will turn off by its self about once a month. Good Battery life will last for days .Ruggedest phone I had in years. All problems seems to be software hope they read this and fix these problems on next update.

Great phone until the update.

Updates are garbage · 3 months ago

This phone worked great did everything I needed to do had it about 4 months then I was forced to do an update. The update definitely killed it. Bluetooth is unreliable, have to pull off the side of the highway turn my truck off and restart it to reset the Bluetooth connection most time doesn't work so I just turn it off don't use it all now. Call the manufacturer they said reset the network cash, I did so and it works until I turn the truck off. So i guess you have to do a reset every time you turn the truck off. And this happens in all my vehicles. Ever since the update the operating system runs way slower. I'm going back to a flip phone smartphones are just garbage pay all that money for crap service and have to use it like a flip phone anyway.
