Kyocera Torque (Sprint)


With its rugged design, excellent voice performance, solid specs, and LTE support, the Kyocera Torque for Sprint is the best push-to-talk smartphone there is.

Rugged build. Loud, clear speaker. Smart Sonic Receiver improves voice calls. Solid performance. LTE support.

Average camera. Bulky.

Kyocera DuraXT (Sprint)


The Kyocera DuraXT is Sprint's best push-to-talk cell phone, but otherwise, it's just average.

Rugged. Good call quality. Loud speaker. Great battery life.

Dated UI. Few features.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions Like the rest of Sprint's push-to-talk lineup, the DuraXT is an otherwise bare bones feature phone. The main menu features the same grid with 12 icons that Sprint has used on many flip phones in the past. It's dated,...

Kyocera DuraCore (Sprint)


The Kyocera DuraCore is a solid, bare bones push-to-talk cell phone that uses Sprint's new Direct Connect service.

Rugged. Solid keypad. Good voice quality.

No camera. Not quite as rugged as the Kyocera DuraMax. Outdated UI.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions Standard calling duties aside, the DuraCore is a pretty bare bones feature phone. The main menu features the same grid with 12 icons that Sprint has used on many flip phones in the past. It's dated, and requires at...

Kyocera DuraMax (Sprint)


Sprint's new Direct Connect push-to-talk network is the future, and the Kyocera DuraMax is a good way to get started with it now, although a few flaws mar the experience.

Very durable. Large keypad. Clear voice quality. Long battery life.

Earpiece and speakerphone could be louder. Dated UI.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions Aside from Direct Connect, the DuraMax is a decent but umimpressive flip phone. The main menu consists of 12 icons arranged in a familiar grid pattern, the same one Sprint has used on many flip phones in recent years....

Kyocera Brio (Sprint)


The Kyocera Brio is a free, capable messaging device, but Sprint users can do much better without having to spend a dime.

Comfortable QWERTY keyboard. Solid email support. Decent call quality.

No 3G. Poor camera. No music or video playback.

Multimedia and Conclusions Multimedia options are poor. You get 10MB of free internal memory on the Brio, along with an empty microSD card slot underneath the battery cover. My 32GB SanDisk card worked fine. But the thing is, you won’t need to expand...

Good value, Ease of use


Good online instruction manual. Good battery life. User friendly. Slide-out keypad a big plus.

I returned it for a smartphone


My wife tried it for a few days and it worked but the buttons were kind of heavy to push. We found a better deal with our phone carrier for a smart phone. The phone worked but we would have gotten a different voice only phone had we decided to do go...

piece of junk


My biggest complaint is that the ringer only works once in a while. Even with the viberator on, sometimes it is so low in volumn that I can not hear it even when it is within two feet.. Have missed so many calls due to low ring and viberation. Can't...

It meets my needs


I purchased this phone for my Mother, she needed a basic phone that she call from and be called at when away from home. It definitely fits her needs. She has been very happy with the phone.

Great slider phone


I was looking to get rid of a smart phone on our account to limit our child's access to social media. This phone works great for calls and texts so it was exactly what we were looking for!
