Kyocera Torque XT Review

Score: 6.57

Kyocera Torque XT is a pretty good phone released back in 2014, which counts with a 4-inches display, a fast Dual-Core processor speeding at 1.2 GHz, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 1.3 MP front facing camera. Let's take a better sight of what this cellphone can give us.

The Kyocera Torque XT is just available in color black. This cellphone is a little bit thick for today's standards, with a thickness of 0.51 inches. Kyocera didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 5.94 oz cellphone.

This phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 system chip, holding a fast 1200 MHz Dual-Core processing unit with 1 GB RAM memory. Graphic intensive applications usually uses lots of CPU cycles, so the Kyocera Torque XT uses an additional 400 megahertz Adreno 225 graphic processing unit to unload the CPU. The Kyocera Torque XT has a moderate 4 GB internal storage, which is enough for the vast majority of users considering it also has an external SD slot .

The Kyocera Torque XT has two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front-facing camera. This phone can also film Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 30 frames per second. In addition, the camera includes many valuable features like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The Kyocera Torque XT is equipped with a very good 800 x 480 4" screen, which makes it hard to distinguish the pixels forming the screen. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This phone offers wifi connection (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high speed connection type and 3G connectivity, over EV-DO A technologies. The Kyocera Torque XT doesn't have a SIM card, because it doesn't support GSM networks and it works in CDMA networks.

This device also includes a couple of cool characteristics such as NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth and GPS Geolocation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Barometer and Compass.

This phone has a 2500 mAh large Li-Ion removable battery that can keep it running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it.

The Kyocera Torque XT costs 249 dollars, a really high price for this kind of phone. This device is definitely the right choice for you it doesn't matter whether you will use it majorly for social networks and internet browsing or will use this cellphone to play lots of games. The Kyocera Torque XT is sold with AC Adapter (Micro USB Data Cable pluggable), Standard Battery and Micro USB Data Cable.
