Nice review of the new Kyo Torque

It's great to hear such a good review for a Kyocera, especially one that can do Sprint Direct Connect.

I stopped by the local Sprint corp store today (Mar. 6) to take a look at it but when they said isn't available until the 8th, I decided I'd go to AT&T's store instead to look over their PTT offerings. Now that the Torque has received such a good first review here on Phonescoop, I'll be anxious to stop back by the Sprint store on the 8th and give it a try. The increase to $20/line/mo iDEN penalty will definitely have me off of Nextel, one way or another, before the end of March. I'm glad that the Torque sounds like a good phone to try out.

Thanks for the thorough review.

BTW, has anyone heard if Verizon has any plans to upgrade it'...

I've played with this phone and was quite impressed with Kyocera and the results of their hardened smartphone, the speaker thing is absolutely amazing and I believe was first showcased in Japan. They may have a winner for Sprint and their old Nextel ...

I'm glad it performed well and the phone looks good, but that's all I liked you could tell it was a 99 dollar phone. The build qaulity on the G'zOne series is much better.
Had a fairly lengthy demo of a Torque this weekend, it's indeed a very nice phone, very well built, but I noticed two downsides during our in-store test.

(1) If you want to use Sprint Direct Connect (SDC) you have to turn off the LTE. Not a problem...
