Review: Kyocera Torque for Sprint
Replying to: Nice review of the new Kyo Torque by cellphonesaretools
Torque: Must turn off LTE to use SDC
(1) If you want to use Sprint Direct Connect (SDC) you have to turn off the LTE. Not a problem at this moment, becaue there is very little Sprint LTE installed anywhere, but as soon as they get their LTE network up & running, that's going to be a major negative aspect for SDC users to have to keep switching back & forth between CDMA & LTE modes in order to use their SDC and also take advantage of the upcoming 4G network's bandwidth.
(2) The sound quality of incoming calls sounded as if the caller was holding their nose while they talked, and even at max volume it wasn't loud enough. The techs at the Sprint store said it was because they get lousy signal there, hence the poor audio quality in "earpiece mode". I wonder, though, if maybe it had something to do with the new "tissue conducting" technology Kyocera has on the Torque. Funny, my old i580 has far better audio quality at the earpiece than did the Torque we were trying.
