Sonim scored the official “world’s toughest phone” recognition for its XP3300 Force from the folks of Guinness World Record. As part of the test, the device was dropped from 25 metres (which is higher than a twelve-story building) onto concrete, only to survive like nothing has happened. Independent judges from Guinness World Records witnessed the “event,” which beat the previous World Record of 3.25m held by the 2008 JCB Toughphone.
Now I wouldn’t go into all the details about the XP3300 Force – we have a separate post on the subject. I’ll just copy the Sonim Technologies’ CEO, Bob Plaschke, words – he said: “We wanted to stamp Sonim’s name on the World Record, confirming that the Sonim XP3300 Force is the toughest phone in the world. Most mobile phones are drop-tested to a metre, which just isn’t enough in extreme environments such as construction sites, oil rigs or in the forest.”
And finally, here’s the official video from the Guinness World Records. Enjoy!
