Sonim XP3300 Force keeps you talking Chat away for up to 24 hours

We all know about Sonim’s hard-nosed reputation for making tough-as-nails mobile phones, but the new Sonim XP3300 Force has another trick up its sleeve: it’s also the phone with the longest talk time in the world.

With this sturdy blower in your back pocket you’ll be good for up to 24 hours talk time before having to plug it into the wall. And if you’re not actually yakking away on it, it’ll hold its charge for an incredible 800 hours on standby.

And then there’s the rugged credentials themselves. Like all of Sonim’s mobile efforts, it can withstand all kinds of abuse, such as dropping it onto concrete from 2m or going for a swim in up to 2m of water. The screen is protected with 1.5mm of gorilla glass, too, so your standard scratches and knocks aren’t likely to do it much harm.

The phone itself is predictably basic, though that’s what we’ve come to expect from Sonim.

Tough guy phone lovers will be able to get their hands on the XP3300 Force from May. No word on pricing yet.
