Extreme lifestyle, extreme phone, extreme case. It isn't often we talk about Sonim on the Pure Mobile blog, and yes, the mobile phone maker is kind of a black sheep in the industry. But Sonim deserves credit for some of the toughest devices out there. And today's pure mobile accessory of the week, the Sonim Rugged Utility Case is a perfect fit for this brand that's made for extremes.
A little background first. Sonim is probably the only mobile device maker solely focused on making phones for extreme conditions. Their ad campaigns usually get this message across by featuring apocalyptic images wherein only the phone survives, or by showing the kinds of crazy conditions and professions their phones are built for – firefighters, construction workers, mountain climbers.
All Sonim phones are built with rugged performance standards to resist the most intense conditions. They feature extra-long battery life, extra-loud speakers, an accessible keypad, even if you're wearing gloves. They're waterproof and resist punctures, oils and chemicals, shocks and vibrations, extreme temperatures and extreme pressure, and protect against drops and microparticles.
WIth all that intense protection built right in, you may be wondering why a Sonim phone needs a case at all. But the Sonim Rugged Utility Case does indeed have its purpose.
With a pouch-like design, the Sonim Rugged Utility Case doesn't need to completely cover your phone, since Sonim handsets don't need protection from liquids. Rather, this über tough carrying case offers a convenient way to carry your device so it'll be accessible, even if you're geared up in mountain climbing equipment or similarly bulky gear.
Made from ballistic nylon, it features 1mm stainless steel hardware, including a belt clip that rotates 180 degrees so you can easily insert and remove the pouch, wherever you are. It's basically just as tough as the phone itself.
Sonim's probably the most macho phone maker in the entire industry, focusing all their attention on devices for people who like to live to the extreme. And with the Sonim Rugged Utility Case, you get exactly what you'd expect from Sonim – an accessory designed to go the distance, whether it's to the construction site, the oil rig, or the mountain peak.
