How do know you're using the world's toughest cellphone? When it survives (mostly) Tom Dickinson's Blendtec blender, a shredder that's eaten iPhones, iPads, keyboards and other gadgets without a hitch.
In the latest "Will it Blend?" video, Dickinson blends a Sonim XP3300 Force cellphone and guess what? Although it became roughed up around the edges, apparently, it was still able to make and receive calls.
The secret to claiming the world's toughest cellphone title? Military-grade materials that are submersible to 6.5-feet for one hour in water, rain/fog/salt air-proof and can resist drops from 6.5-feet onto concrete.
The XP3300 Force doesn't run Android or have any fancy schmancy smartphone apps, but it has a two-inch screen made from Gorilla Glass with 20-24 hours of talk time (800 hours on standby), noise cancellation, A-GPS, a two-megapixel camera with LED flash and a 3-year warranty with its $525 pricetag.
The fact that it can survive deadly Blendertec blades is just a bonus. I wouldn't subject such an expensive cellphone to a one, though.
