Kyocera DuraXV / DuraXV Plus / DuraXA Reviews


Carrier: Verizon Wireless

Kyocera DuraXv Plus. Without a doubt the worst phone I’ve ever had. Within just a few days I knew I had made a huge and expensive mistake. My previous phone was a Motorola Barrage, military grade and it was the absolute best phone I ever had. Lasted for years and was still working (but showed signs of failing) when I looked on the Verizon website and read about this phone.
I’m not into the smartphone thing and just need a rugged phone to make and receive calls, get timed alerts, etc. So, when I read about this phone I thought it would be a great replacement. It does have some good features, such as 5 meg camera (my old one had a 2meg), and a photo flash. My main complaint is the inferior menu design which makes navigation more difficult than it needs to be. The Motorola Barrage had an excellent menu design, just the opposite of this phone.
For my fellow reviewers that give praise to this phone I say that you probably never had a Motorola Barrage military grade.
For those considering this phone I would advise against it.

Carrier: Verizon Wireless

The phone is very durable and easy to hold.

How ever putting in new contacts takes to much time.

The camera takes to long to flash.

People calling in to my phone saying they can not hear me well and the volume is turned up to the highest point. I have to put the phone on speaker for me to hear them. I don't like this because every one in the room and apartment hall way can also hear my conversation.

I understand it is reccomended I purchase a Bluetooth but I don't feel I should have to spend more money to use this phone and don't like having to carry something else along with my purse or around my neck.

You can not see the speaker for your ears. It is covered with plastic.

To put it simply the DuraXV on Verizon is a really great flip phone. Long battery life, excellent call quality, and tough. It's way better than the Casio's and it's what the Samsung Convoy's should have been.
