Review: Kyocera DuraForce for AT&T

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-up Comments  4  

The DuraForce is a great entry from Kyocera. It fills a nice role in the rugged handset lineup at AT&T. It's a really tough device that looks good enough to use anywhere and everywhere without fear.

The device is well designed and made. The screen is good, and so are calls, data speeds, and battery life. I was pleased with the comfortable size of the phone, which makes it easy to use one-handed. Its ability to handle abuse and a dunking performed flawlessly.

Kyocera's Android skin is light enough that it won't mar the experience at all. All of Google's standard services and apps are present and accounted for, but so is a ridiculous amount of bloatware. Even so, essentials like messaging, browsing, and email are all functional and useful. The camera software is usable and I was surprised at how good the resulting images were. Pair this with the other media apps and you have a solid entertainment device in hand.

If you're in the market for a rugged phone that can pass as a normal phone, the DuraForce is your best option on AT&T's network.
