Review: Kyocera Jet for Amp'd
Amp'd Mobile is one of the first content-drived MVNOs to come to market, and as one of the first phones to launch on it, the Jet is very exciting. The phone offers an unparalleled entertainment experience with the young user in mind - which is the primary goal of the Amp'd Mobile service. Unfortunately, the Jet proves that by focusing on this key online experience, other phone functions like camera performance, battery life, and user interface, can get lost in the shuffle. Ultimately the Jet does very well at what it sets out to accomplish... just don't leave home without your charger.
