Review: Kyocera Milano for Sprint

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  2  

There are two basic selling points to the Kyocera Milano: 1. It costs just $29.99 on contract; and 2. It has a keyboard and Android. That's it, though.

While the Milano is a good voice phone, has good battery life, and a great keyboard for pecking out messages, it excels at little else. The slower processor, low-res screen, and diminutive feature list make for a slow phone that doesn't look great or offer much.

This underpowered phone runs native apps poorly. Hardcore gaming apps? No way. The camera software has great features, but is slow and takes horrible images.

In the end, if you're looking for the most basic smartphone and don't plan to use it for much more than calling and messaging, the Milano could work out for you (but then so could a feature phone). If you want more from your device than the basics, I highly suggest you pony up a little bit more cash for a phone with a bit more horsepower. Sprint offers plenty for $99.99, several for $49.99, and even some for free.
