Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this phone I liked how the phone was waterproof, seemed like it had decent storage and you could even port the apps to the SD card, so put a big enough SD card in and you could put as much on as you want, wrong. Each app has cache data that eats into the phones storage, you are constantly moving apps around clearing that data just to update certain apps, because when you go to update and it tells you, you don't have enough space. Overall the phone as a phone has been great but if you like apps and I really didn't have that many on mine this isn't the phone for you. I have owned this phone for 6 months and I just switched to one with bigger storage, I will definitely keep this as my backup phone though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not to bad for the money i would say that overall this phone is good. I have owned it now for about 6 months and it is doing ok. The cameras do a good job but they are blurry at times. the front facing camera does well but not as good as some of the better phones and I did have one issue with it freezing up on me but after that it has been ok since. I also noticed that if you install an app such as an anti virus app it will slow the phone down significantly and i have a micro usb card 64 gig and it seems to be good with it.I will tell you this much. you can only install about 5 apps on the phone itself but you could get more if you look at the mega bytes of the app. i do like the phone over all and i would have given it a better rating but the above comments are why.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad.... Got this phone for my son mostly for texting and calling. Works great for that and the graphics are pretty clear. It did freeze up the first couple days we had it when the alarm was going off. The battery does not come out of this phone had to look up how to reset it online.basically hold on off button in for 10 seconds. It works great niw. 4 months into having it no complaints. He watches videos and plays a couple games. It was 50.00 not too bad in price. Great phone for a younger kid not downloading a ton.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy this phone I bought two of these phones because they were dust resistant and have hated every minute of owning them. They crash all the time, freeze up, the sim card is always coming lose, no storage, terrible keyboard.. I really cant say anything good about it.. sad coming from a professional company like kyocera.. total waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE !!!!!!! I bought this phone in April of this year and ever since Aug until now it has been freezing , turning off by itself and never coming back on unless I hold the power button down for a minute. One time I literally had to turn my phone off and on 20 times in 10 minutes. Getting an upgrade to a better phone next month.
