Sonim XP8 Review

Score: 62.3 / 100

Sonim XP8 is a high-level Android device released in 2018, packed with a high-tech 2200 megahertz Octa-Core CPU, a pretty large 5" screen, a 12 mega-pixels back facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front camera. Let's take a better view of what this phone has to offer.

This device is for sale in color black. The Sonim XP8 feels a bit heavyweight comparing to other phones , weighting 11.82 ounces. This cellphone is a little bit thick compared to today's phones, being as thick as 0.71".

Sonim designed this cellphone with a spectacular 5 inches screen, and a 1080 x 1920 (Full HD) resolution, which makes everything look absolutely perfect.

Sonim decided to power this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SDM630 chip, which holds a great 2.2 gigahertz Octa-Core processing unit and a huge 4 GB of RAM. A great point of this cellphone is its inmense 64 GB internal storage and a slot for an SD memory card, allowing the user to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games currently available without worrying about running out of space.

This device features two cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back-facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front side camera.

The Sonim XP8 features an amazing 4900 mAh Li - Ion removable battery that can keep it running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it.

This device counts with WiFi capability (which it can share with other devices acting as a router), 4G LTE high performance data connection and fast 3G connectivity, supported by HSPA and HSUPA technologies. The Sonim XP8 supports dual sim cards to be able to to use two different phone lines and even different carriers at the same time.

This device also comes with lots of useful characteristics like NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Infrared Blaster, Bluetooth, GPS and FM Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone is being sold for 700 dollars, not cheap for this kind of cellphone. No matter if you will use it as a work phone, want this device mostly for social networks and internet browsing or want a phone to play games, you will definitely be very satisfied with it. The Sonim XP8 is packed with Wall Charger, Battery, Screwdriver, Quick Start Guide and USB-C Cable.
