Kyocera DuraMax Review
Kyocera DuraMax is a ruggedized flip phone, which is tough enough to withstand rough handling. With its rubberized housing and scratch-resistant design, the Kyocera DuraMax looks and gels like a workhorse. The phone is certified for military specification 810G, for resistance against, rain, lite air pressure, extreme temperatures, shock, vibration and dust. The 2″ (240 x 320) and 1″ (96 x 64) displays are standard fares for any flip handset. Text shown on the display is relatively easy to read. The well-spaced, large keys also allow people with thick gloves to use the phone without problem.
The Kyocera DuraMax works on EVDO REV.A network. Sound quality should be excellent, with no background hiss. Battery life is also adequate for most users at more than seven hours. The 3.2 MP camera lacks autofocus, but includes a LED flash. Colors on the photos look accurate and nicely balanced. Unfortunately, the video recording feature is generally next to useless with the ability to record only 176 x 144 videos.
