Kyocera DuraForce (AT&T)

 

The Kyocera DuraForce is an adventure-ready Android smartphone that strikes a nice balance between price and performance.

Affordable. Extremely durable. High-quality 720p LCD. Long battery life

Poor camera performance. Subpar call quality

Kyocera's latest ruggedized smartphones have bucked the trend of settling for dated specs in exchange for serious durability. The Brigadier on Verizon is one of the most impressive ruggedized smartphones we've tested, beating everyone to the punch with...

Kyocera DuraForce

 

Unfortunately, the DuraForce isn't a particular "force" to be reckoned with when it comes to performance. Its 8-megapixel camera takes blurry and bland photos, its processor can feel slow and its battery doesn't observably last very long.

AT&T's Kyocera DuraForce features a tough and waterproof construction, push-to-talk capabilities, impressive call and audio quality, and a competitive price tag.

The handset comes with a lot of bloatware you can't get rid of, its camera takes poor photos, its processor is sluggish at times and its battery drains quickly.

Get the Kyocera DuraForce if a rugged handset is a priority; otherwise, AT&T has other handsets in the same price range with better cameras and faster internal speeds.

Review: Kyocera DuraForce for AT&T

 

The DuraForce is a rugged handset from Kyocera that can survive a significant amount of abuse without blinking. It's worth a look if you need a durable Android smartphone.

Review of the kyericera phone

 

I recently purchased this phone as a backup to my Samsung s7 active. I have used it a couple of times. There have been some improvements since it first came out about a year ago.
