Kyocera DuraForce Pro Review

Score: 7.57

Kyocera DuraForce Pro is a high quality Android cellphone launched in 2016, featuring a good size 5-inches screen, a very fast Octa-Core processing unit ticking at 1.5 GHz, a 13 megapixels back camera and a 5 MP front facing camera.

Apparently Kyocera decided not to care about this cellphone weight at all, releasing it with a 8.1 oz weight. This device is only for sale in 16 777 216 color. The Kyocera DuraForce Pro is quite thick compared to nowadays cellphones, being as thick as 0.51". Even though this cellphone only has 5.84" long, it's still able to fit a a 5" display.

Kyocera ships this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 8952 chip, including an extremely powerful 1.5 GHz Octa-Core CPU and a big 2 GB of RAM memory. A good point of this device is its large 32 GB internal storage and a slot for external memory cards, which allows the user to store lots of apps, games, photos and videos without having to worry about how much storage capacity is left.

This cellphone includes a completely amazing 1080 x 1920 (Full HD) 5 inches display, which makes all images and videos look beautiful and brightful.

The Kyocera DuraForce Pro is equipped with two cameras, a 13 megapixels back facing camera and a 5 megapixels front-facing camera. It is capable of capturing Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 30 fps. Additionally, the camera has time lapse video.

This cellphone has WiFi capability (and it can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A , the fastest connectivity and fast 3G data connection, supported by HSPA technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

This cellphone also features a great numbre of cool characteristics like Biometric fingerprint, Wireless charging, NFC, Bluetooth (4.2 ), GPS and Radio, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Kyocera DuraForce Pro packs a 3240 mAh amazing Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours without charging it at all. An issue to consider is that the Kyocera DuraForce Pro's battery is not removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to get older, even though with its 3240 mAh you will probably replace this cellphone before that becomes a real problem.

This cellphone costs about $ 182, which is not cheap for a phone this level. If you will use this cellphone mainly for social networks, want a gamer cellphone, are an amateur photographer or will use it as a work phone, you will definitely love this cellphone.
