Call quality is still top-notch and as for the DuraXT's physical durability, well, I'd expect nothing less from Kyocera.
The clamshell phone form factor is normally associated with fashion-centric and stylistic handsets. But the Kyocera DuraXT, which comes in the said design, is no such thing. In fact, it’s one of the toughest little PTT-enabled clamshell handsets to ever become available through Sprint. And it’s bordering on ridiculously cheap, too.
With the DuraXT, you’ll get a military grade flip phone that works with dual-band CDMA networks and supports EV-DO Rev. A data. Its main features include a 2-inch QVGA display, a 3MP camera, expandable memory, and a whopping 8-hour battery life. It’s like a really well-performing basic phone on steroids.
What makes the DuraXT exceptional is the fact that you can take it pretty much anywhere you go thanks to its rugged and ultra-durable design. As mentioned earlier, it’s one of the toughest models available from Verizon. It’s an easy pick for those who want a phone that truly lasts.
