Review: Kyocera Brigadier for Verizon Wireless

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-up Comments  5  

The Brigadier mostly delivers on the promises made by Kyocera. It's good-looking, tough, water-resistant to a degree, and has one of the strongest displays I've ever seen. The Brigadier offers good battery life, excellent network performance, and solid call performance. The downside to its rugged design are the size and weight, which are both considerable.

The Android user interface functions just fine and Kyocera's customizations aren't over-the-top or annoying. The added widgets from Kyocera make controlling some aspects of the phone a breeze, and the basic configuration of the home screen panels and app menu are manageable.

The Brigadier offers about the same media tools as most other Android phones, with Verizon's branded apps thrown in for good measure. Perhaps the device's biggest weakness is the camera, which takes below average photos.

If you're looking for a tough phone that can take a beating, deliver solid battery life and call quality, yet still offer a range of finer features, the Kyocera Brigadier is worth a look.
