Kyocera Echo (Sprint)


Dual screens mean you can do two things at once. Dual-screen games are pretty awesome

Not enough apps use the two screens. "Simultasking" apps don't work well together. Merged screens have bezel in center and odd aspect ratio. Short battery life in two-screen mode

The Android-based Kyocera Echo for Sprint is a flawed first attempt at an interesting concept. Not enough software supports dual-screen multitasking for this gutsy design to pay off.

Kyocera Echo (Sprint) Review


The $199 dual-screen Kyocera Echo is not just an interesting proof of concept or a gimmick; it's a dual-screen dynamo that delivers a truly unique and compelling multitasking experience that you won't find on any other handset today. If you're looking...

Innovative design, Compelling dual-screen software, Clear call quality, Long battery life in full-screen mode, Includes extra battery

No 4G and mediocre 3G Speeds, Bulky design, Screen-slide motion tricky to master, Short battery life in dual-screen mode

Kyocera Echo


The Kyocera Echo on Sprint ($200 with a two-year contract as of April 13, 2011) is the first dual-screen Android smartphone to hit the United States. With a design reminiscent of the Nintendo DS, the Echo seems to make a better tablet than a phone.

Running two applications side by side is useful ; Unique design and idea

Hardware feels gimmicky ; Dismal battery life

Since the Echo is more gimmick than substance, you might want to pass it over in favor of something with more power.

Review: Kyocera Echo, Android-Phone mit zwei Touchscreens (Videos)


Engadget-US hat in einer Review das erste Android-Phone mit Dual Screen, das Kyocera Echo , unter die Lupe genommen. Die zwei Bildschirme machen eine ein wenig plumpe Figur, und wie wir bereits berichtet haben, gibt es bisher nur sieben auf die beiden...

Kyocera Echo review


If there ever was a phone you shouldn't buy without doing your homework, the Kyocera Echo is it. It brings something new and different, but that doesn't always mean something new, different and ...

You can't help but want to use the Echo as a tablet, and it does a great job at it, but I think I've had my fill of bezels. That's what you'll need to ask yourself, provided the little things don't turn you off, will the bar down the middle of the...

Kyocera Echo Review


The Kyocera Echo on Sprint is the first dual-screened smartphone ever. It runs Android 2.2, and can run a handful of apps in parallel. In this review, we explain how it

Software that enables dual-screen use is well thought out ; Photo and video quality is above-average ; Comes with two batteries ; Easy text entry with a full screen devoted to the on-screen keyboard ; Terrific speakerphone ; Boxy shape allows you to...

Device is thick, heavy, and ugly ; Significant shutter lag in camera ; No 4G ; Unstable and buggy at times ; Screen becomes black when viewed with polarized sunglasses ; Simul-task apps, like browser, don't work with multi-touch ; Runs last-generation...

The Echo is a prime example of a novel idea, but a poor execution. The device is ugly, thick, and heavy, and it feels underpowered. We'd love to see a company with more hardware experience, like Samsung or HTC, come to the table with their version of a...

Review: Kyocera Echo


Kyocera boldly ventures forth where no smartphone has ventured before with the dual-screened Echo. Kyocera attempts to answer a question that has plagued humankind since the beginning of time.
