    Unstable, Battery Hog

    Posted

    I switched from Verizon to Sprint due to Costs, and was looking for something that would replace my familiar HTC Incredible, which I loved. This phone was offered as FREE with new contract from BestBuy. The phone comes with Android 2.2 but upgrades to 2.3. The DUAL Screens are pretty amazing, and browsing functions are greatly enhanced! I loved the multi-tasking applications as few as there are. They work pretty good. Android OS is pretty much as advertised. The Multi-tasking and Dual screens, come as a big ++ but the tradeoff is battery. This unit ships with 2, and an external charger, which was nice. I got 22 hours on average on my HTC Incredible. I got about 6 hours out of This phone with 1 battery, just browsing, texting.. no phone calls. The default keyboard application crashed on me constantly, as did other applications. Setting software back to factory, and reloading my applications did not solve any problems. Upgraded Firmware = Same Issues. I was sorely disappointed with this phone. Returned it to BestBuy 6 days after I got it and purchased the Dual Core Motorola 4G phone, which has been remarkable thus far.

    Great Android Phone

    I love this phone. I wish I had gotten it for free like they are offering now. This is a unique design. Right now everything looks the same, like wanna be I-phones. How boring everyone has the same looking phone. I actually moved out of an EVO for the Echo. It took me a second to get use to it because I have owned the Hero and EVO before this phone. Once I got use to all the different modes I love this phone. I use this as my work phone. Email, Texting, Confernce Calls, Calendar, and Agenda this phone does it all perfectly. I also use ths phone as my personal phone. At night in bed I use this instead of my laptop. I watch videos and surf the web. It's great! The only thing this phone does not have is Wimax. No big deal I can use WiFi at most places anyway. Also, 4G use to kill my battery on the EVO. Believe me, you'lll love this phone.

    The most gimmicky phone...

    Sure, dual screens are a plus. But besides having this and a spare battery/charger, this phone is a flop! First of all, the build quality is only mediocre, but the design is pitiful. The flipping mechanism to flip out dual screens is a pain to use; I have trouble with it and feel like I'm gonna break it. Second, idk if theres even a case for this phone. Third, once in dual screen, I got tired of the distracting gap between the screens REAL QUICK. Finally, there's not enough apps that utilize the dual screens, but I guess we'll have to wait on the developers for that. The OS is descent, I might add. Kyocera didn't really touch the stock android 2.2, so no complaints there. Also, a front camera would've been nice. Overall, definitely dumping this phone for the nexus s 4g.

    Can be better

    The phone is great, huge screen when opened and gives you everything you want, and better! However, it does have some lags sometimes due to its dual screen. The battery life is pretty good, especially that you are working on "2" phones....and you have another battery that comes with it and you can charge "on the go"...so you have enough juice for that! Only annoying thing is that, the screens when open they have a black end in between them, which makes watching stuff gets annoying sometimes...but you get used to it soon, and the huge screen makes up for it!

    So the coolest part of the phone is hands down having two screens. The Screens are designed to work together perfectly.The 5mp camera is great and the screens are hd and look wonderful. The Functions of the phone are just like any other android phone, just cooler with the two screens. I have a quick video review attached, This video really sums up the phone pretty well. hope this is helpful.

    It sucks nothing on it ever works it's slow it breaks easily the main screen gets dust inside of it, this phone is a digrace to engineering and is so flawed if i could afford a new phone i would even wipe me @$$ with this one I've had it for 6 months and it has been nothing but trouble I've had to get 5 refurbished so far it may look cool but it works like a dial up computer

    Needs some help

    Hopefully they get some of the bugs worked out. The speaker that you use while on the phone is HORRIBLE. The texting is not friendly. You can get just as many features on any other phone. There is a good chance I'm going to use my 30 days and return it.

    This is by far the worst phone I ever had. It had many issues. The worst being it wouldn't let me answer the phone and when I did, it cut in/out. It was bulky and just overall horrible.
