"Promisses the world, delivers bad service"1.0 starson by boegman
Pros: Battery lasts long, and can take pictures at odd places
Cons: The picture quality compares to phones from 4 years back, Sending SMS's will make you want to throw the phone, keys peeled completely after a year, remote service centre does the minimum or less, runs only java certified by few, GPS useless
Summary: I've bought two, (one for my father). Wanted a no-hassle phone with good support rather than gimmicks. Bottom line is, mine broke down (sim card socket replacement), this was repaired (I had to pay the shipping as only Sonim can service it). Now after 7 months the buttons are peeling off on both handsets, basically unreadable. Sonim local and US both indicate that this is not their problem as it's cosmetic. Seriously, this is not the toughest phone in the world. Another gripe I have is that although I do not expects gimmicks, this phone has the most unfriendly user interface ever, the need to go learn from Nokia or Sony, I now only send SMS's if phoning is not an option at all. Battery life is a plus on extended trips. Won't buy one ever again.
