70% Kyocera DuraForce PRO Ultra-Rugged Smartphone Review
Source: Slashgear English Archive.org version
It’s readily apparent that Kyocera put a lot of thought into this phone — it truly is an ultra-durable unit, but one that, at times, feels premium. You don’t have to sacrifice on the security front, for example, thanks to the fingerprint sensor. The phone is truly waterproof, unlike some competing ‘waterproof’ models, and the screen is crisp, bright, and highly saturated.

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.

Comment

Kyocera:


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 405: Integrated graphics card for ARM based SoCs. Depending on the used SoC the clock rate is around 500 MHz and features 48 unified shaders.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Qualcomm Adreno 644: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 20% faster than the previous generation.

5.00:

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.

No weight comment found (one expected)!


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.
