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
