The Sonim Landrover S1 is a phone which is built to last. In any conditions this phone is expected to function and it does. The phone is one of the Sonim range of phones who are a specialist mobile phone manufacturer that specialise in tough and durable phones. This phone is no exception and in fact takes the term tough to a new level when it comes to mobile phones.
The phone is the Worlds first mobile phone to be IP-67 rated. This in itself is an achievement, but when you consider that the phone also contains a variety of useful functions including GPS and a camera, the scale of Sonim’s achievement starts to hit home.
The camera is a 2 mega pixel camera which offers the ability to take useful photos whenever required and view them on the TFT screen. The quality of the camera is good enough to take good quality images that can even be printed out at a later time.
The phone is rugged in several ways and is water, dust and shock resistant. Its water resistance means the phone can actually be submerged for 30 minutes and still come out and function normally. As far as its durability to shock is concerned, the phone is able to be dropped from a height of 2 metres and continue to work without any loss of function, which is not something many mobile phones could boast about.
The phone is also able to offer an extremely lengthy standby time of over 1500 hours as well as over 18 hours of talk time. This is especially useful when you consider the environment and terrain that this phone is likely to encounter, where an electric socket may be hard to find.
The phone offers built in GPS for satellite navigation, which for anyone is a useful addition but probably more so in a phone of this context. Blue tooth provides additional connectivity. A built in torch completes the ensemble of functions.
The Sonim Landrover S1 is a phone which pulls no punches, it looks tough and it is tough. It is a match for any phone and delivers a level of durability that is hard to match.
