Reviews for the Kyocera DuraForce Pro 3

70% Kyocera DuraForce Pro 3 Review
Source: PC Mag English
If you're looking for a rough-and-tumble phone on Verizon that can handle unfriendly environments, the Kyocera DuraForce Pro 3 is hard to beat. Its replaceable battery, expandable storage, decent radio performance, and overall degree of toughness make the phone a dependable choice for its intended market of construction, warehouse, and farm workers. If you're not on Verizon's network, take a look at the Sonim XP10, which offers a lot of the same features and can be found at AT&T and T-Mobile for a couple of hundred dollars less. Mainstream phone buyers, meanwhile, should look to models like the Apple iPhone Pro, the Google Pixel 7, and the Samsung Galaxy S23+, all of which are similarly priced, waterproof, and offer better cameras, displays, and overall performance.

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
