Sonim XP Strike (Sprint)
Didn't we tell you the next phone would be tough? The Sonim XP Strike from Sprint isn't the best-looking handset on the block, and good luck trying to look cool whipping it out in dance clubs. Then again, the XP Strike wasn't designed for your daily routine. Dustproof, shock-resistant, and waterproof, the device is best suited for field operators and ultrarough environments.

The good: Sprint's rugged Sonim XP Strike includes basic Web features and push-to-talk Direct Connect.
The bad: The XP Strike charges through a 3.5mm jack, has a few design flaws, and takes terrible pictures, and its display collects moisture after a dunking.
The bottom line: While the Sonim XP Strike is tough as nails, Sprint has other rugged devices that are better not only in performance, but in price too.
