Breaking News: Sonim Wins PC Magazine's Extreme Performance Award
What is a PC Magazine Extreme Performance Award?
Every year, PC Magazine picks the cream of the gadget crop and conducts "re-producible, Labs-based benchmark tests." As PC Magazine says, the awards are about "pushing boundaries" and "represent[ing] the leading edge of Performance." The XP3300 Force won the Extreme Performance Award for 'Best Continuous Talk Time'; it also should be noted that the XP3300 was the only cell phone awarded an Extreme Performance Award. No smart phones, no flip phones, just our phone. So, it seems that PC Magazine agrees that we are the only phone worthy enough to be called Extreme.
PCMag reviewer Alex Colon’s says the Force’s bottom line is: “Toughest phone available. Longest talk time we’ve ever seen. Industry-leading three-year comprehensive warranty.” He got it right on the mark. We apologize for being Extremely redundant, but we’d like to Extremely emphasize the ever in “Longest talk time we’ve ever seen.” We’re the first in PC Magazine’s history to have achieved such an Extreme, outrageous, unbelievable battery life which explains why we won this Extreme Performance Award.
PC Magazine also reviewed tons of cameras, laptops, and desktops to find who else was at our level of Extreme Performance. There were so many awesome gadgets to drool over (have your holiday wish list ready?), but we were especially into the Canon EOS 7D, recipient of ‘Fastest Shot-to-Shot Time.’ It’s true; this camera is pretty Bad Ass. We’ve gotten to test the 7D for ourselves in the office, and here's one from our backyard.
- Drive half-way across across the United States (except states with cell phone laws)
- Watch the fastest Ironman to date, Andreas Raelert, do the entire race 3 times. He did it in 7 hours/41 minutes *remember this tough guy on our blog?
- Have a Harry Potter Movie Marathon, 17 hours/30 min and really piss off whomever you are watching with.
- Fly from Sonim's headquarters in San Mateo, CA to our office in Bangalore, India.
You got any more? Also, how many times did we say Extreme? ;)
