Rugged phone news - Guinness delivers tough mobile phone verdict
All tough mobile phones want nothing more than to prove their toughness by finding a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
Unfortunately though, in a brutal and merciless world there's only space in the Book of Records for one tough mobile phone.
That's why Guinness has devised a system of measurement that only the toughest of phones can survive: a fight to the death.
Imagine Chuck Norris, Clint Eastwood, Steven Seagal, Sylvester Stallone, Charles Bronson, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean Claude Van Damme and Bruce Lee all getting together in the same room and agreeing that the only way to earn the title of The Toughest is to be the last man standing.
Well this is precisely what Guinness has done, only with phones…
And the winner: the ultra-rugged Sonim model which survived unscathed from an amazing 25 metre drop test.
It was also dragged by quad bikes and boats, run over by cars, immersed in ice and concrete, sandblasted and sent to the bottom of the deep – and you should have seen what the other phones did to it.
But at the end of the day, it just got up, brushed itself off and said it'd be back. That's one tough mobile phone.
