Kyocera Kona


The Kyocera Kona doesn't look like much, but for mobile users seeking a no-muss, no-fuss handset that can perform the basics, this is a phone worth considering.

The Kyocera Kona has a compact, easy-to-handle design and an intuitive interface, and it lets you hide certain contacts in your phone book.

The Kona is sluggish, and its camera not only takes poor photos, but also lacks both a flash and video-recording capabilities.

Though it's devoid of even midlevel features, the Kyocera Kona manages to be an excellent flip phone.

"Cheaply made, multiple flaws."


The main flaws are as follows:

Large buttons make for easy texting if you are looking for a big flip phone. I did not find the texting to be slow.

See the main flaws list in the summary. They were too numerous to list here.

None at all.
