Verdict

As tough as they come, the XP3300 is the handset of choice if your work or play takes you to places insurance companies and the sane fear to tread. The handset is near enough indestructible, the battery life can be measured in geological time and you get plenty of bells and whistles including a decent camera and GPS. It’s also every easy to use, a feature not to be underestimated if you are trying to make a call in adverse conditions. At £295 the price is not unreasonable for a device that could well outlast its owner. ®
