Kevlar is a Gimmick

Everybody hears kevlar, and they instantly think MY PHONE IS BULLETPROOF OMG!!!


Kevlar used to mean something, these days, when I hear it being included in the linkes of Cellular phones, thats just ridiculous.

I don't see Sonim advertising they put kevlar in any of their phones, but I bet just about any Sonim phone is tougher than this one is.

I don't think they are indicating that you can shoot it with a gun. Just that it's not going to shatter when it hits the ground, as an iPhone does.

Nice dig on apple there, love it.

Yeah, I know what you mean - but the first thing that comes to mind when anybody hears the world Kevlar is "bulletproof", and the phone companies know that.

Speaking of Shattered iphones - on youtube, check out "Will it blend". There are two of them, one for the iPhone, and one for a Sonim phone.

Lets just say if you slow the video down to slow motion, the iPhone lasts less than 3 seconds and literally explodes into a billion tiny pieces, while the Sonim phone actuially remains in one piece for the entire blend.

Laughing people may need Sonim but they WANT a cooler phone...

There's no such thing as 'bulletproof' anyway, it's just a question of how big a bullet is required to pierce it. And Kevlar can't deflect a straight shot anyway......

But I seriously doubt anyone is going to firing bullets at their phone because it has Kevlar on it...

I'm sure some idiot on YouTube will try it.

Well, they will also probably try to blend it....that's the kind of thing they do on You Tube...
