Kyocera DuraXTP (Sprint)

 

The Kyocera DuraXTP is a supremely rugged feature phone for Sprint that can meet all your calling and texting needs, and offers some limited Web capabilities.

Good call quality, earpiece volume, and speaker volume. Rugged build. Removable battery.

Noise cancellation is only average. Poor camera.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions The DuraXTP uses the Brew Mobile Platform. It has a simple UI, with Messaging and Contacts shown on the home screen for quick access. Hitting the OK button in the middle of the direction pad takes you to a grid or list...

Kyocera Rise (Sprint)

 

The Kyocera Rise gets you a nice keyboard for a nice price on Sprint, but this Android phone has budget written all over it.

Solid QWERTY keyboard. Good battery life.

Lackluster display. Poor camera. Bulky.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions There's 0.9GB of free internal storage and a 2GB microSD card preloaded in the slot underneath the battery. It also worked with my 32GB SanDisk card, but not my 64GB card. The Rise was able to play AAC, MP3, and OGG...

Kyocera Rise (Sprint)

 

At first glance, the $19.99 Kyocera Rise seems like too good of a deal to pass up. This Android Ice Cream Sandwich handset features a full QWERTY keyboard and decent performance at a bargain basement price. However, given the trade-offs involved,...

Kyocera DuraCore (Sprint)

 

The Kyocera DuraCore is a solid, bare bones push-to-talk cell phone that uses Sprint's new Direct Connect service.

Rugged. Solid keypad. Good voice quality.

No camera. Not quite as rugged as the Kyocera DuraMax. Outdated UI.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions Standard calling duties aside, the DuraCore is a pretty bare bones feature phone. The main menu features the same grid with 12 icons that Sprint has used on many flip phones in the past. It's dated, and requires at...

Kyocera DuraMax (Sprint)

 

Sprint's new Direct Connect push-to-talk network is the future, and the Kyocera DuraMax is a good way to get started with it now, although a few flaws mar the experience.

Very durable. Large keypad. Clear voice quality. Long battery life.

Earpiece and speakerphone could be louder. Dated UI.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions Aside from Direct Connect, the DuraMax is a decent but umimpressive flip phone. The main menu consists of 12 icons arranged in a familiar grid pattern, the same one Sprint has used on many flip phones in recent years....

Kyocera Brio (Sprint)

 

The Kyocera Brio is a free, capable messaging device, but Sprint users can do much better without having to spend a dime.

Comfortable QWERTY keyboard. Solid email support. Decent call quality.

No 3G. Poor camera. No music or video playback.

Multimedia and Conclusions Multimedia options are poor. You get 10MB of free internal memory on the Brio, along with an empty microSD card slot underneath the battery cover. My 32GB SanDisk card worked fine. But the thing is, you won’t need to expand...

Kyocera Milano (Sprint)

 

The Kyocera Milano is an inexpensive Android phone with a nice QWERTY keyboard, but that's not enough to make up for all its shortcomings.

Solid QWERTY keyboard. Decent call quality.

Poor media playback. Tiny, low-res display. Lackluster camera.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions There's 68MB of free internal storage and a microSD card slot buried underneath the battery. There's a 2GB card preinstalled; our 32GB SanDisk card worked fine, as well as a 64GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC card.
