Very Cool Concept, Somewhat slow, Bad Battery Life.
16 September 2013
Summary: UPDATE: I had originally rated this phone 3 stars, because of 3rd party application support for both screens. However, I learned that Kyocera has an app in the Play Store called "Tablet Extension" which allows apps to take advantage of both screens. This phone is the only phone of its type, and it is a very interesting concept. It unfolds into two screens, allowing for you to even run two stock apps at the same time.
Summary: Very comfortable, large screen, intuitive interface. Unfortunately in our city only one operator of cellular communication which works in the standard, in the country there is no connection and in the menu there is no Russian language. The son has not parted with this phone is constantly playing in games, draws , makes the photo, a large screen, does not spoil the eyes.
Summary: This is a great phone! It has all the bells whistles except its not 4g.. The double touch screen is a feature like no other... My only concern is how durable the mechanism is that makes the screen pivot out....but I snap it out all the time and dropped it a couple of times and so far so good!
Kyocera Echo Seerves Purpose as Interim Dual Screen Mini-Tablet
9 October 2012
Summary: I bought this tablet-phone as a toy to try out as a dual screen device. The short of it is that I found I really do like it. Because I have a DroidX, I really didn't need or want another cell phone. So for the past month or so, I have been carrying it with me and using it as a part-time tablet. For $37, it serves the purposes I had in mind--field-testing a dual screen tablet, surfing the Web with a split screen, and checking email.
Echo is a decent phone for the price, almost a little tablet.

Summary: I bought this phone as an upgrade from my first smart phone. It's dual screen seemed a great idea, and, they are. There are not as many apps or games as I hoped that you can use both screens on and the middle when the screens are put together and be distracting. The battery life is fair, Not as long as a regular smart phone, you'll recharge it every day. Browsing is fast, download speeds are great. It has Flash which is perfect.
