Review: Kyocera Jet for Amp'd

In-Depth Review of the sleek Kyocera Jet EVDO phone for the new content-oriented MVNO Amp'd.
Internet savvy teens (and tweens) have a tremendous appetite for entertainment, as well as placing a high priority on sharing their experiences with each other. The Jet is the first phone from Amp'd Mobile, the new service hoping to capitalize on the demands of today's youth. Amp'd offers cool cameraphones and affordable contracts that include data, voice, and Push-to-Talk service. The centerpiece however is the Amp'd Live service, which includes full-length music downloads and a large video library. The Jet is a great device for staying in touch with fellow young hipsters and accessing a wealth of entertaining online content.
Music Player Issues (and others, as it turns out)
The issue is that if the filename is too long, the song won't show in the list. I'm not sure what the limit is, but who cares? just make the name shorter until it works.
As far as battery life goes, what did you expect? This isn't a motorola v120. There is alot more going on here with about the same type of battery. So buy a car charger, and don't try to tell me that you will never use it, because I might be forced to smack you.
This goes for all EVDO phones. Everyone demands higher resolution and bigger screens, better speake...
Build quality compared to A800
Any idea on how it fares up to the A800 by Samsung? Is the flip solid? How are the plastics? Do they feel hollow? Is there a cheap feeling battery door?
