Kyocera Echo (Sprint)

 

The Kyocera Echo makes the most of its two screens with the ability to run two apps at the same time, as well as special apps that leverage both displays.

The $199 dual-screen Kyocera Echo is not just an interesting proof of concept or a gimmick; it's a dual-screen dynamo that delivers a truly unique and compelling multitasking experience that you won't find on any other handset today. If you're looking...

Kyocera Echo (Sprint)

 

The Kyocera Echo has a one-of-kind design that offers two screens and the ability to use two applications at once. Call quality is acceptable and the smartphone is quick and responsive.

The Kyocera Echo's design entails some usability quirks and we're concerned about long-term durability. The feature set is pretty average, it lacks 4G, and you'll have to wait for an upgrade beyond Froyo.

The Kyocera Echo's design offers some unique advantages, but its appeal is hampered by usability quirks and a lackluster feature set.

The Kyocera Echo is more than just another Android 2.2 smartphone, it's all about offering a unique user experience.

Kyocera Echo – Sprint (Review)

 

While just about every Android smart phone features a one-piece candy bar form factor, Kyocera took a risk and stepped away from the traditional comfort zone. The Echo features a 5 megapixel camera and 8 GB of internal memory, but the star of the show...

I used the term “mediocre” multiple times and in many different sections of this review. That word just about sums up the Kyocera Echo — mediocre. It has poor performance, camera quality, responsiveness, and the design is not exactly what some might...

"ECHO- AM I THE ONLY ONE?"

 

I got the first phone (I had 2) in July of 2011. I used it around a week before both screens suddenly were garbled like. I took it back to Sprint, where they replaced it for me for free under warranty with the next phone. This phone barely fell I'd say...

"4th Echo in 5 months. Units Gingerbread is bad OS"

 

Don't buy. One big headache after another. I'm stcuk with getting refurbished units noiw and they all suck like the ones out of the box. Sprint won;t move me to a better brand of phone so I am stuck without service and a piece of crap to shpow for it....

Can't find one pro yet in 4 phones. piece of crap

contant lock up requiring battery removal to reboot. Many, many times a day. Camera locks up on use. remove battery. text box, won't let you type a message. no good. in phone use creates lockup, remove battery to end call. locks up when looking at it

"As long as you don't need to TALK on your phone..."

 

This is NOT a good phone. My husband is a truck driver and we both have these phones. Simply put, they suck. The "android fail is very irritating when you are trying to talk on the PHONE. If all you want the phone for is to play simple games and...

Battery life is better than expected. Dual screens are cool, when they work. Music is pretty clear.

Phones reset what feels like constantly. The more advanced games will freeze the phone. Drops calls VERY often cuz it feels like reseting or it just freezes up and you have to shut off the phone and reboot. And mine will keep the SD card seated.

"It sucks! worst phone I have ever owned!"

 

Worst mistake had a perfectly working Epic phone and decided to switch to a "cooler" phone now I cant wait to get rid of it!

Multitasking I guess

always hanging up calls, force shutdowns when you need to press a number option during a call it locks the screen so it makes it so fustrating. I have already takeng it to sprint store to have it fixed, it still didnt work nor did the replacement.

What do you call a phone that when released, was marketed as a carrier's flagship model is discontinued 5 months after it was released? Give up? Its called a LEMON!

Two screens

EXTREMELY BUGGY!!!

"the phone is alright as a phone"

 

i have had this phone for almost a year....i thought it was cool when i got it but its ok for a phone....not the best for making calls or texting but other than that its alright...i finally figured out why they give u an external battery charger and 2...

2 screens, multi tasking, durable, comes with external battery charger and 2 batteries, hinges are durable, can take heavy wear and tear, update stops power cycling, can be on 2 different websites at once

heavy, battery life, not 4G, lags a lot, freezes up, color of phone, android force closes
