Review: Kyocera Event for Virgin Mobile USA

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  

The Kyocera Event earns ts $80 price tag. You get a small, usable phone that has good battery life, naked Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and access to Virgin's apps and services. Call quality was very good, and the Event performed on par with other devices on Sprint's network.

It order to reach that $80 price, however, Kyocera gave the Event a crummy screen and a low-speed processor. These two components drag down the overall experience significantly. Beyond the so-so screen, the Event is not great at shooting pictures/video.

For the budget smartphone shopper, the Event's low cost is likely its most appealing feature.
