Not good news, but good to know...

Thanks for the thorough review.

Clearly the Sonim Strike is a big disappointment, but it's certainly good to know that up front, without having to go through the pain of switching from iDEN to CDMA and getting a dog like the Strike.

I had high hopes for the Sonim Strike as a replacement for our Nextel Motorola i365's, but it would appear the Strike is NOT viable, given the report of very poor audio performance for earpiece, speaker & PTT calls. The Kyocera Duraplus also has (or at least had) horrendously poor speaker performance. That's two massive strikes (no pun intended) for Sprint's hoped-for successors to the Motorola iDEN PTT line.

I emailed Dan@Sprint.com a couple of weeks ago to inquire when they will have the Sprint Direct ...

Oh like it's all sprints fault they have to move off iden and it's all sprints fault they can't get Motorola I'm board to make a CDMA ptt phone? Lol

...Would likely fix this issue.

With regard to the Kyocera phones, our company recently purchased the DuraXT phones and I can tell you the volume level is higher than any Motorola we've used.

strike review

I've been using the Strike for a month, the shape of the buttons make them easy to use with gloves and the call quality is GREAT, I really reccomend this phone above any of the Kyocera offerings
Sorry, our experience with the Strike is very much in line with the review: terrible sound quality - and volume is MUCH too low in even moderately noisy environments (Sonim is coming out with an add-on loudspeaker to remedy this shortcoming). ptt butt...

CDMA 800

Please start including whether a particular Sprint device supports CDMA/LTE 800.

Thanks.

BTW does this device support CDMA 800?
That information is always available on each phone's spec page.

Yes, it does.
...
Actually, all new Sprint phones since late 2011 have supported CDMA 800 (BC10, AKA the old Nextel ESMR band.)

And no phones yet support LTE in that band (which for LTE will be known as band 27.)
