Kyocera Neo E1100 (MetroPCS) – Lacks 3.5 mm headphone jack
1 September 2010
Excerpt: When I first saw that Kyocera Neo E1100, I thought it was a standard flip style phone but as I went through it, I realized that it had some out of the box features. The stylish elements on the phone are what keeps this handset apart from the crowd. They are complementary and subtle, just like other Kyocera phones and do not distract much. The feature set is pretty functional but that is not a bad thing.
Conclusion: With a free up-front price (after mail-in rebate) and MetroPCS plans ranging from $40 to $60 month including taxes and fees, the Kyocera Neo is one of the cheapest ways to own a cell phone in America. Sadly, the Neo's price is the best thing about it.
Pros: Stylish design. Good call quality. Best plan pricing in the industry.
Cons: Very poor battery life. Useless speakerphone. No music player or video recorder. Some odd usability quirks.
