Was able to withstand whatever we threw at it
Sonim has made a very basic phone that aims to do one thing well: withstand punishment. The XP Strike won't win any beauty contests, the OS is slow and dated and the camera is horrible. None of that matters, but what does is that it was able to withstand our testing, which at times went above and beyond what it is rated for. Sonim has is a seriously tough phone for seriously tough users that may be more rugged than anything the famed Nextel lineup ever offered.
Mammoth battery life
The Nokia 105 is a funny proposition for the European market as people won't be buying it as their main device and possibly not even as their second handset.
It's very much a back up, emergency phone which is capable of taking some knocks and deliver a battery life which can last you a month, but it won't be able to offer the experience we've come to expect from our mobile phones today.
Very cheap, dust and splash resistant, very long battery life
Strange that a phone like this should seem like a novelty, but it's so basic as to appear perverse. That barely-there price tag is what swings it though -- if you want to keep in contact while you're away, at a festival for instance, and don't want to risk your "real" phone, the 105 is a pretty good bet.
Good Festival Phone
Basically one I can use for nights outs and festivals and for this purpose it works really well. On its plus side its got a never ending battery, facebook is limited but workable for messaging and status updates, memory card surport up to 32GB for use of a pretty decent mp3 player ( a lot cheaper than buying a iPod), its solidly well made and general operation such as messaging is quick. Also if it gets lost or stolen its not the end of the world.
This phone has held up for months now
I decided to give this G'Zone phone a try and have LOVED it, better than any phone I've had yet. Nothing has cracked or broken, I've dropped it several times, and it is still going strong. I rely on my phone heavily in order to run my business, and it has been trustworthy and reliable. I'm tough on phones, but this one has done awesome so far. I just have to be sure I don't lose it in a snowbank somewhere.
In terms of looks, mid-range phones are getting rather nice, as the 6600 Slide shows. The external hardware design is neat and pocket-friendly and battery life is good. However, Nokia could have offered more built-in memory and repositioned the microSD slot so that it doesn't lie under the battery. The camera is a bit of a let-down
A few blue details, such as the blue navigation key, add a little flare to the already stylish phone.
If you're not bothered with having every feature under the sun and want a phone that's small and easy to use, the Nokia 6600 Slide is it. While it's not going to wow your friends with its amazing features, it does fit in your pocket easily and will text and make calls with no hassle whatsoever
Sure, the Nokia 6600 Slide is a neat looking, smooth and well-built piece, packing in the essentials for a 3G mid-level mobile. It delivers a good music performance, and has a reasonable if unspectacular camera. But under the surface it's a standard Nokia S40 handset with little to excite upmarket phone buyers. Still, if you're after an attractively designed compact sliderphone, the 6600 Slide's worth a look.
After the success of the E50 from Nokia, there was a demand for a something better in a similar package. That's when Nokia launched the E51. While the E50 was promising for an average user, the E51 packages power that'll suffice for demanding users. Can the E51 provide the power that many users expect with its conservative design? Let's find out.
The battery life is truly unbelievable
The Sonim XP3300 is a truly excellent phone and it is also truly expensive. The $400 price tag might be rather steep, but remember this phone is virtually indestructible, it is used by Batman, and comes with a three year, no questions asked warranty.
But please keep a few things in mind, the screen is as low end as the phone can be while still maintaining some respect, there is no 3G and the camera leaves a lot to be desired.
A very rugged phone
The Sonim XP3300 Force is a very rugged phone that is protected against drops and submersions and has good resistance to heat and cold. While being a very rugged phone the handset also comes with some features to keep you occupied including a camera, media player, web connection and games to enjoy.
As rugged as they come, undoubtedly one of the the toughest tough-phones around.
As tough as they come, the XP3300 is the handset of choice if your work or play takes you to places insurance companies and the sane fear to tread. The handset is near enough indestructible, the battery life can be measured in geological time and you get plenty of bells and whistles including a decent camera and GPS. It's also every easy to use, a feature not to be underestimated if you are trying to make a call in adverse conditions.
The Nokia C5 is a very capable smartphone by Nokia.
The Nokia C5-03 is a nice touchscreen smartphone for those on a budget. It offers almost every standard feature and comes with a fairly good OS with limited application support. It is fast and sports a very good design. In this price range, it is a good buy. Also do check out this list of the best budget Android smartphones for more choices.
Call quality was good and we didn't encounter any issues during our review period of about a week.
The Nokia C5 offers a simple candybar design and good range of features without being too costly. It won't blow you away, but it shouldn't disappoint either.

The Nokia C5 is a straightforward smartphone which combines ability with simplicity.
The Nokia C5 may not be as advanced as most smartphones but its affordable price tag means it is competing with the likes of the HTC Tattoo, a budget touchscreen phone. As an alternative to a handset with a touchscreen, and for simple communication, the C5 should compete well full review coming soon.
