Review: Kyocera DuraXT for Sprint

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  6  

The Kyocera DuraXT services its intended purpose: to provide reliable voice communications in a rugged form factor. It's brutish in design and highly functional in form. Any other phone would have cried from the abuse I rained upon the DuraXT. It's a tough little mother.

The DuraXT excels at voice calls and PTT calls. Call clarity is good, speaker volumes are painfully loud, and the device performs well on Sprint's network. Throw in outstanding battery life, and you have a winning combination.

There's no doubt the DuraXT is short on extras. Yeah, it has a camera that takes decent photos, but the video is sub-par, music nonexistent, and web surfing so abysmal as to be worthless.

But most people who are looking at the DuraXT don't need those frilly extras. They need a phone that works as hard as they do. The DuraXT is that phone.
