from Phone Scoop

The Kyocera DuraXV is a solid, if somewhat simple, handset for Verizon Wireless customers. The phone delivers the goods if you're looking for a tough feature phone.

The handset is modern looking and made of durable materials that feel good to use. The size and weight are good, and the various buttons and controls work well for the most part. The DuraXV lives up to its IP68 rating and can survive a lengthy swim in addition to some hard knocks.

Call quality is decent, signal performance is excellent, and battery life is outstanding. Calls are aided by Kyocera's Smart Sonic Receiver technology, the 3G radio delivers acceptable data speeds, and there's no reason to complain about 2+ days of battery life.

The Brew software is dated and clunky, but it gets the job done. I wish the camera software and other apps were a bit more advanced and easier to use, but I understand the limitations of feature phones. The camera is acceptable for those random one-off shots you might take during the day, but won't replace a standalone camera. Then again, if you're considering the DuraXV you probably already know that.

The Kyocera DuraXV doesn't aim to be much, but hits the sweet spot with its feature set.
