Kyocera Brigadier


With a phone this rugged and affordable (it's $50 on-contract, or $400 without), you'd expect it to cut corners when it comes to other features. But the Brigadier still has all the fixings you'll find on most quality, midtier Android devices on the...

Verizon's extremely durable Kyocera Brigadier has an ultrastrong sapphire screen, a convenient programmable key, and a competitive on-contract price tag.

The handset has a hefty build, call quality for the in-ear speaker is poor, and the camera has difficulty with white balance.

If you don't mind its extra bulk, the Kyocera Brigadier is a rugged and water-resistant device that delivers a modern smartphone experience for a low price.

Kyocera Brigadier Review


Rumors about sapphire glass expected to be used by the next-generation iPhone have been swirling about for some time now, but we don't have to necessarily wait for that exact handset to see what the hoopla is all about regarding this unique piece of...

Sturdy construction makes it impervious to most damage ; Sapphire Shield glass is durable and resilient to scratching ; The display churns out an amazing 610 nits of brightness ; Deafening internal speaker ; Excellent battery life that goes the...

The design doesn’t go out of the box for a rugged phone ; Rather choppy performance with its Snapdragon 400 processor ; Unimpressive photo and video quality from its camera ; Lots of distortion and noise with its call quality

Not surprisingly, Kyocera excels at what it does best – making ruggedized phones that are meant to withstand all that life has to throw at us. With the Kyocera Brigadier, they’ve made the proper enhancements to make its offering suitable for the...

Kyocera Brigadier review: Nearly unbreakable without breaking the bank


Lately, smartphones are growing larger, lighter and thinner, making them increasingly frail to the point where we might have to worry about a $1,000 iPhone 6 Plus warping or bending in a back pocket. Amid this strange new status quo, the Kyocera...

For weeks I've tossed the Brigadier around, including a few times in the pool, sauna and shower. I've taken it on bone-jarring mountain bike rides on the dirty and dusty trails of the American southwest's high desert, making sure to drop it several...

Kyocera Brigadier Review: Heavy Duty


The Kyocera Brigadier is built like a tank, and it's as ugly as one to boot, but it stands out among the rugged smartphone pack by including one of the market's only sapphire displays. Is having a scratch proof screen enough to make this Verizon...

Water- and damage-resistant ; Solid performance ; Good battery life

More expensive than comparable non-rugged phones ; Bulky design

It’s neither the slimmest nor the sexiest device out there, but the Kyocera Brigadier offers lots of extra value for its relatively moderate bulk. It’s not

The Kyocera Brigadier packs a punch. This rugged Android handset for Verizon Wireless is one of the toughest available in Big Red's lineup. Here is Phone Scoop's full report.

"Would have given 5 stars but has too sensitive mic and have display sleep problem."


I love this phone. The display is great and virtually unscratchable and because of the advertising for the Sapphire Screen I tried using first my car keys and then a hardened drill at work. Neither put a scratch in the display. Even my old Gorilla...

"No support - missing pieces!"


Bought for my son... loved it, EXCEPT he was able to pull out the water tight pieces that cove the charging/headset plug-ins. AND KYOCERA has refused to respond to how to replace these pieces. We noted that they were made to come out, and could put...

Best phone I have ever bought. The sapphire glass is indestructible. Waterproof, dustproof, shockproof. This phone isn't just a normal work phone. Its loaded with features and with a battery that lasts me 3 days. Get it while they last. This is a real...
