Kyocera Rise

LAPTOP Magazine
11 September 2012
  • Summary: We'll take a pass on the Kyocera Rise. While this phone features Android 4.0 and a full QWERTY keyboard, there's not much else to get excited about. Yes, the $19.99 up-front price is cheap, but after that, you'll be stuck with a device that has a low-res display and short battery life. If you can live without 4G and really want a slider Android phone on the cheap, you'd be better off purchasing this device on Virgin Mobile, where you'll save a lot more over the long run.
  • Pros: Stock Android 4.0, Comfortable physical keyboard, Very affordable, Good call quality
  • Cons: Small dull display, No 4G, Poor battery life, Mediocre camera, Pricier overall than Virgin Mobile version

Kyocera Rise Review

Phone Arena
3 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Rise offers some nice features, such as a decent slide out QWERTY and a mostly vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich build, but in the end it has too many shortcomings. Despite being bigger and higher resolution than the Milano , the Rise’s screen is still of poor quality and the call quality has taken a hit too. The camera was predictably bad, but for $20 on contract you’d expect that.
  • Pros: Mostly vanilla Android 4.0, The keyboard is mostly comfortable to use
  • Cons: Call quality is not as good as its predecessor, Screen is still poor quality, Web browsing is slow, even on Wi-Fi

  • Excerpt: The Kyocera Rise is a chunky yet compact smartphone that offers a taste of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the cheap. It’s one of the smallest handsets ever to be released to market with ICS, and that’s part of what makes it quite an attractive option. Although small, it features a speedy Snapdragon processor so users will have no problem navigating menus and running applications.
