Phone Scoop had a few moments to spend with the Sonim XP3.20 Quest Pro. If you need the toughest phone out there, this would be the one.

Sonim XP3.20 Quest Pro  

The Quest Pro has an IP-67 rating. That means it withstands more dust and water exposure than pretty much any other phone out there. The trade-off, of course, is size. The Quest Pro is enormous — quite literally a brick. On a scale of 1-10, we'd rate the toughness factor at a 10. According to Sonim, this phone is completely protected from fog, salty air, sand, and dust. Hell, it's put together so tight, it protects against microscopic particles. It also withstands multiple drops from 6.5 feet to concrete. This is not a phone for your pocket. It deserves a holster.

On the physical side of things, it has large buttons, most of which can be operated with gloves on. Sonim says that the buttons are tested to withstand 850,000 activations. That means you can press each button 850,000 times and they'll still work every single time.

The feature that scores highest on the "cool" factor would be the display. It's made of Gorilla Glass. Sonim used the Quest Pro's display to hammer a nail into a block of wood. Yeah, it's that tough.

As far as other features go, it has a 2 megapixel camera, GPS and navigation apps.

The Quest Pro is not for regular everyday people, but more for those who live life mostly outside in the elements and need a phone that can put up with all the nonsense that Mother Natures could possibly throw at it.
