5/10AVG.
RATING
Based on 8 reviews

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.

Tough, easy-to-use, and excels at the basics

from Cnet

Because U.S. Cellular's town ain't big enough for two tough phones, the DuraPro has replaced the Motorola Quantico as the only rugged handset in the carrier's lineup. And honestly, I'd say it was a successful usurpation. True, the DuraPro already has an inherent advantage since the Quantico came out almost four years ago and technology has improved a lot since then. But users will find that these bumps in specs don't interfere with the basic simplicity and needs that they look for in a rugged feature phone.

The device is still tough as nails, has excellent call quality, a decent 3.2-m... Full review

Phone Scoop

The DuraXT is about surviving the dangers of worksites and other harsh environments all while providing the best in basic communications

from Phone Scoop
The Kyocera DuraXT services its intended purpose: to provide reliable voice communications in a rugged form factor. It's brutish in design and highly functional in form. Any other phone would have cried from the abuse I rained upon the DuraXT. It's a tough little mother. The DuraXT excels at voice calls and PTT calls. Call clarity is good, speaker volumes are painfully loud, and the device performs well on Sprint's network. Throw in outstanding battery life, and you have a winning combination... Full review

Tough as nails, with great call quality, and a respectable camera to boot

from Cnet
Though I'm no construction worker, I still dig the Kyocera DuraXT. I like how it offers more features for daily use than the DuraPlus. With the DuraXT, Kyocera traded in the Plus' useful flashlight for a low-grade but decent camera. Users also get a microSD card slot and the device's clamshell design is less unwieldy than the rubber-brick-build the Plus sported. Most importantly, call quality is still top-notch and as for the DuraXT's physical durability, well, I'd expect nothing less from Kyocera... Full review

This phone is garbage. Don't waste your money

The Kyocera drops calls and shuts down at random. It is a work phone otherwise I would toss it in a lake or smash it with a sledge hammer.

I hate this phone, no way to customize ringtones and drops calls

Had so much trouble trying to download ringtones, I will never own another phone by this company. There is no way to put custom ringtones on this phone and I'm very dissatisfied with this phone. I would not recommend this phone to anyone. Shame on anyone who decides to purchase this phone

Very Basic! Presently NO WAY TO IMPORT RINGTONES!!!

Hoping Kyocera picks up on the irritation this phone brings with it's basic "no user option" to customize ring tones. Why irritate the owner and block folks from adding their own ringtone or a MP3, MIDI file to the ringtone??? Shame on whomever decided to control these options. My old Razr had much... More

My old Razr had much more user interface so why can't this? Does not make ANY sense!!! Again, Shame On The designers! Less
