Kyocera Torque Review

2 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The Kyocera Torque isn’t the fastest Android smartphone around and probably won’t appeal to those who want a top-of-the-line iPhone or Galaxy S4. However, the rugged aspect combined with long battery life and good call quality makes it a great phone for the target audience. The free (with contract) price also helps. If you can ignore some of the clunkier design elements, the Torque is a great companion for that treasure hunt you’re planning.
  • Pros: Highly rugged (waterproof), Bright screen, Not full of bloatware, Clear and loud call quality, Long battery life
  • Cons: Too many buttons that get in the way, Low-res screen, Unimpressive performance

Expert Review

Phone Arena
18 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Despite being a mid-range Android device running an OS that is well over a year old, the Kyocera Torque is an amazingly advanced device. It is well designed, and passed our torture tests with flying colors. The Smart Sonic Receiver technology is nothing short of amazing, and we are still a bit in awe of the lack of a speaker. Call quality, battery life and OS performance are all very good.
  • Pros: Sturdy, durable design, Smart Sonic Receiver technology and HD voice make for great call quality in any situation, Hefty 2500mAh battery can give days of use
  • Cons: Direct Connect not available in conjunction with LTE

Kyocera Torque (Sprint) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
11 March 2013
  • Summary: With its battle-ready, armorlike chassis and impressive battery life, the Kyocera Torque is a beastly smartphone that can handle almost anything you can throw at it. But beyond its durability, the Torque is a solid smartphone, too. If you are in search of a rugged smartphone, the Torque is well worth the investment. Samsung's Galaxy Rugby Pro for AT&T offers LTE in more cities and faster performance, but the Torque offers a far brighter display and better call quality.
