Echo...not so bad after all


Apr 14, 2011, 4:36 PM
After having played with an Echo on and off for the last two weeks I'm honostly pretty impressed. The hinge is REALLY well done, doesnt feel week in the least bit. The apps work really well across both screens. The "simul-tasking" apps actually add functionality and work as advertised. And the phone itself is quite snappy and hardly noticed any hang ups at all. Oh and its pretty much stock android which was pretty nice of Kyocera not to crap all over it.

From what we've seen of the Kyocera Echo in our store, it's a good thing the handset comes with a spare battery as the life of usage is about the same as the HTC EVO 4G. Laughing

Which is not nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Oh sorry you were trying to be clever. If you can't get 8-10 hours out of the Evo you are doing it wrong. Echo seems to last about the same.

I am hoping to get my hands on one today. I have heard that the hinge mechanism is pretty solid, which was one of my concerns when I first saw it. The fact that it comes with a "spare" battery will help make up for its assumed talk time listed.

Thanks for sharing!
