The best $75 I have spent in a long time

Having recently watched my 6-month old Sony Xperia smart phone face-plant into a rock while hiking in South Africa. Yes, it had a case, but as luck would have it, the rock found the glass directly. I dreaded the purchase of yet another $300-400 phone. Best Buy has nothing of interest at $300 or more. The AT And T store would encourage me back into a contract or charge a high price for a basic unit. So I jumped on Amazon and searched for ""ruggedized phone"" (figuring I would drop the next phone sooner than later). I was thrilled to find so many models, even brands I had never heard of, many of which offered features I was not even aware existed. Yet most started at $300, again.Then I found this Kyocera DuraForce for just $75. Too good to be true?! This phone appeared to be the same that was sold in the AT And T stores, but without the plan or higher price. I was wary, but upon arrival, thrilled.It is a solid, well built phone. Sturdy and embedded in a permanent, rugged case. Each hatch (SIM/SD card, ear phone jack, USB) are water tight (you can see the seals). It offers 8 physical buttons which I like as tactile functions can be made to work without having to look at the phone. Not only can I change the volume, but I can switch from Blutooth to speaker to ear without touching the screen. I have always preferred the original Android concept of physical buttons at the bottom of the LCD screen for Menu, Home, and Return, which this phone incorporates. No matter the application, these functions are always in the same place.The speakers are loud and clear, the LCD is bright and clear, and the case is on-par with Otterbox for durability. The Android interface is one of the best organized, most functional I have ever used. The addition of the AT And T utilities is nice, as they have put some thought into their function, unlike Motorola (basic, unaltered Android) or Sony (made many things more, not less complicated).I am considering buying a second, to keep in the closet, as my backup or as a quick gift to a friend for when their far too expensive iPhone or Samsung bites the dust.

Absolutely worth the price

I stuck my T-Mobile nano SIM card in this phone, added T-mobile APN to get on the T-Mobile data network (I did NOT have to have root access to do this, for a change), and now I'm getting 4g everywhere I go - unlike every single other phone I've tried, which all managed 3g at best but usually not even that (I would often get H or E). I haven't dropped or submerged it yet (nor do I intend to), but it's a solid phone that I'm confident will last a long time, physically.I can't say too much for the speed, as I don't have much experience with top-of-the-line superfast phones, but this does the job very well with minimal pauses and slowness. The GPS and compass are better (faster and more accurate) than any previous phone I've owned.A few years ago, I spent $500 on a Kyocera Brigadier (which eventually aged, and all three gaskets broke off after a few years and the network connection and GPS got weaker and slower - but it never managed to get on T-Mobile 4G) and this phone is very comparible to the Brigadier in terms of speed and capability. I wish the DuraForce had a Sapphire Shield screen like the Brigadier, but not many phones do, so that's a bit much to ask!For less than $100, this phone is an absolute steal! It's thicker and heavier than most popular phones nowadays, but I prefer that. I just wish more options for cases/holsters were available for this phone.

A nice cheap small phone with bonus features.

I bought this phone as a temporary backup and never intended to use it as my 'daily driver'. I only spent a little over $60 for it but it was well worth that price. I was surprised at how sharp and clear the screen appears. It feels solid and the 16Gb of storage does help. But the Snapdragon 400 processor is a little slow at times and coming from a much faster phone, it gets a little annoying when I press a button and have to wait on it to function. But most of the time it works adequately. The small screen doesn't have a lot of room for icons or fat fingers. I didn't buy it to be waterproof either so that was a bonus. The call quality on AT And T is really good. The external speakers are pretty good too and its easy to listen to music or voice in the car while driving. It never overheated, even while charging. Another nice feature is the wireless charging. I bought a PMA charger for $6 and it works fine.

Easy too set up using straight talk AT And T sim card however this phone takes a ""Nano"" sim card. I have ran water over it and the phone sill works I have done a normal drop test on concrete and no external damage phone is operational,this phone comes with some AT And T apps that will only work if you have actual AT And T also this phone came very quickly I advise getting the phone case and screen protector all at once .

It is mediocre phone but it is rugged waterproof and works as a backup for hiking/biking/etc

It is mediocre phone but it is rugged waterproof and works as a backup phone for hiking/biking/etc conditions where you might worry about your $700 Galaxy. I use it as inexpensive motorcycle GPS.Despite the difficulty other buyers had it works on T-Mobile. To get mobile data work you need to call T-Mobile customer support and set up APN they will guide you through. Or if adapt enough you can copy APN info manually from your existing phone.When you call t-mobile escalate call to technical support regular support would not know how to handle it good luck

but after that its been perfect. I've already dropped it like 50 times in

had to go in and adjust all the weird code numbers to make it work on TMobile, out of the box it would disconnect constantly because its an AT And T phone, but after that its been perfect. I've already dropped it like 50 times in the first 2 weeks, and used it in the rain and in the shower. functions great, runs smooth. i was afraid it was going to have a really crappy interface and lag a lot. i dont play games on it or anything really, but FB, reddit, and a star gazing app all run smoothly.

Best starter or secondary Smart Phone you can buy.

I purchased this phone a couple of weeks ago for my septuagenarian father as his first smartphone. I popped out his micro sim from his old flip phone and inserted it into this phone's protected slot and once I configured T-mobile's APN settings correctly here in the US, the phone works perfectly. No dropped calls, messaging is quick, and 4GLTE data is smooth. No need to buy a protective case! Temperature is cool all day and the battery lasts all day and probably multiple days. (My dad doesn't do much with his data). I like the programmable red button on the side. I think it's supposed to be for a walkie talkie, but I set it up for Google assistant so my dad can have Google do most of the work for him sending messages and placing calls. The wifi and bluetooth work well. The camera is a bit grainy, but hey it's not bad for a phone that cost less than $100. And the front camera is decent for video calls. Once I downloaded all the better aftermarket apps from the Google store (new phone, contact list, browser, etc.) and hibernated all the AT And T bloatware apps, this phone works super and very rugged. Overall I think it's the best bargain for a cell phone. My sister is even jealous and she has an I-phone!

This is my first smart phone. I didn't buy one before because I'm rough on phones and was afraid I'd break it. Well, this one made it one week before I dropped it and broke the glass. It is cracked badly but the phone still works so I'll keep it until it doesn't work anymore. I was hoping this ""military grade"" phone would be a little tougher but it wasn't. Not for me anyway. I couldn't find a decent case that fit this particular phone so the next one I buy will be one that I can buy a good case for. Other than that, I've enjoyed having the phone. I probably won't go back to a flip phone.

Good luck finding a tougher phone!

This phone is incredibly tough. My last one lasted two years+..this is after I dropped it in a bucket of paint then used paint thinner on it and blew it off with an air hose. Oh and I ran it over with a forklift and it ricocheted off a semi trailer wall only cracked the screen slightly. This is my replacement. funny thing is it died when I went to charge it. Best phone ever in my opinion

Good for price, but too much AT And T bloat
by Valued Customer on December 12, 2017

The phone itself is OK, for the price you pay.Camera is no good, but if you are using this for call/messaging/internet with a sim card, it does it job.My main purpose was to get a phone so that I could use it with an international SIM for emergency/low usage purposes while traveling outside the States. This phone did its job!My low star rating is because I could not use Tethering and I did not get that it had all the AT And T junk installed.I am assuming that AT And T junk prevents the Tethering/Hot spot functionality.Anyhow, I am probably going to install LineageOS to see if I can get rid of the bloat.

Kyocera DuraForce-ful

Purchased this phone with relatively modest expectations..the processor is acceptable, build quality appeared to be tough but moderate, looks weren't especially Hollywood..however- exceeded my expectations in all ways so far. Faster than my Huawei, tough and ruggedly handsome, runs all my commonly-used Android apps, and - most important- very good signal strength and old-person-acceptable volume and tone. Accepts up to 64gb SD Micro cards and T-Mobile nano SIM; caution- MUST add the T-Mobile APN to enable successful LTE on their Network! Highly recommended if you don't require pretty and don't mind solidly substantial non-Apple or Samsung..
