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.

"Cricket lied and the camera did not save pictures."


Was looking for a phone to upgrade. Can not afford a smartphone so I decided to get this one through Cricket which I am already with. First off, I asked Cricket's tech support if it could stream video. They said it could. Well, the guy lied. It can't....

None at all.

Does not stream video.

Weak Signal as compared to Samsung


Basic phone with weak signal. Weak battery, have to charge often.

Just a basic phone for calls. It was only $1.


Just a good basic phone. Use it only for phone calls and works good. Only paid $1 so the value couldn't be better.

Great Phone for Older People!


Great Phone for Older People. Easy set up and no fancy things. As stated no fancy things just a basic phone.

Great phone with large visible numbers and screen.


This phone is for my mother in law who is legally blind. The number keys and screen are large and bright enough that she can see them.

For my parents


I actually bought this phone for my parents (both aged 55+) and they love it. They can easily see the dial pad and the screen is a good size. The battery life is really good too! Both my parents are very happy with these phones, if they didn't like...
