  • Durable and water resistant, the Kyocera DuraXV is one of the most capable feature phones available.


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


  • 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.


  • The fun-looking Kyocera Verve delivers the bare-bone basics of a feature phone well, and its ability to easily transfer its photos will satisfy casual shutterbugs.


  • Sprint's Kyocera Torque stands apart from other rugged smartphones by delivering a strong durable design without sacrificing features.


  • Despite being a mid-range Android device running an OS that is well over a year old, the Kyocera Torque is an amazingly advanced device. It is well designed, and passed our torture tests with flying colors. The Smart Sonic Receiver technology is nothing short of amazing, and we are still a bit in awe of the lack of a speaker. Call quality, battery life and OS performance are all very good.

    In the rugged market, the Torque is more than capable of enduring the hazards of a busy adventurer's life or surviving on a construction site. The tools offered by enduring battery life, push-to-talk, and optimized calling make this a phone fit for someone who puts their device through hell. While the performance isn't up to par of more nimble competitors, it more than makes the grade in its class. If you're in the market for a solid communication device and can live with Sprint's weaker network, the Kyocera Torque is a solid buy.


  • If waterproof capabilities are an absolute must, consider the Kyocera Hydro XTRM. If not, skip this for some of the carrier's better alternatives.
