Review: Kyocera Torque for Sprint

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  4  

The Torque is the best cell phone to come from Kyocera in ages. It gets nearly everything right. Kyocera did a great job designing a phone that looks good and functions well.

The rugged hardware is excellent and protects the innards well. The phone quality is probably the best of any Sprint device I've tested in the last six months, and offers both cellular and Direct Connect options. The battery life will impress most users, and the Smart Receiver Technology means phones calls will never go unheard. Last, the Android 4.0 operating system is a snap to learn, even if it's not entirely light on its feet.

The few stumbles made by the Torque are ones that likely won't matter to the Torque's target demographic: it has an "OK" camera, and limited media options.

If you need a rugged Android smartphone from Sprint, the Kyocera Torque is the one to get.
