Sonim XP Strike

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.

Poor design and camera plague tough device

Though it isn't the sleekest device, the Sonim XP Strike from Sprint isn't anything to mess with. Fulfilling military-grade specifications for ruggedness, the handset can survive the toughest of environments. It's shock-resistant, waterproof, and dustproof, and can withstand up to 1 ton of pressure (so don't feel too bad if you accidentally run it over in your driveway with your SUV).

The carrier's first Sonim phone, it not only expands Sprint's rugged lineup, but it also features Sprint Direct Connect, which enables callers to quickly communicate with one another at a push of a button.

It's available now for $129.99 after you sign a two-year contract and send in a mail-in rebate.
