Product Description

If you’re looking for a phone that can take some serious beating without breaking the bank, Kyocera DuraForce XD could be for you.

This rugged smartphone offers an outstanding balance of performance, durability, and ease of use. And yes, this is one of the smartphones you can easily handle with your gloves on.

The following sections give you a quick review of the device.

Kyocera DuraForce XD Specs

There are plenty of characteristics that make the DuraForce a good choice for demanding users. Let’s check them out.

Design

At first look, the DuraForce XD is a phablet. Measuring 6.6 x 3.4 x 0.6 inches, it’s quite bigger than Galaxy Note 5, for example. It’s also heavier at 10.8 ounces, whereas Note 5 weighs around 6 ounces.

Indeed, you’ll feel this smartphone in your pocket, but all the extra weight comes from the phone’s reinforced structure.

It’s engineered from rubber and hardened polycarbonate. The backplate is removable, and a single metal screw holds it in place.

Connectivity

The smartphone supports LTE and 3G and offers good performance. Depending on your location and network capacity, you can expect up to 13Mbps with no glitches or freezes.

The DuraForce XD also features NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1. And you shouldn’t have any problems connecting to different routers, externals, or your computer.

Internals

The beating heart of this device is a 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400. It’s rather fast for a smartphone with a relatively modest RAM and CPU. The DuraForce XD has 2GB of RAM, which is more than enough for typical use. You won’t experience any lag using common productivity apps, browsing the web, or even with more demanding business apps.

However, gaming on this phone isn’t the best. But it wasn’t designed for gamers. And surprisingly, the phone can handle Asphalt 8: Airborne (which is quite a demanding game) pretty well. There’s no noticeable latency or dropped frames.

Kyocera Duraforce XD Battery

You get a removable Li-ion 3,700 mAh battery. The manufacturer caps the talk time at 23 hours, and the standby time is 816 hours.

But what’s the battery life in a real-world scenario?

You can stream videos via LTE for five and a half hours before the battery runs dry. And you might not need to recharge the phone for a full day if you don’t use demanding apps or keep the smartphone on maximum brightness.

It does, however, give you the option to optimize usage to save the battery. And of course, there’s always the possibility of getting and using a replacement battery.

Camera

The DuraForce XD has two cameras – 8MP on the back and 2MP on the front.

The front camera is okay for video calls, and the rear takes okay images outside. However, the autofocus feature is kind of slow. So, you need to keep your hands steady to avoid motion blur.

Taking videos outperforms the stills, and you can capture 1080p clips at the standard frame rate. Overall, it works well in industrial settings if you need to record something on the go.

Get Your Force Going

As a rugged phablet, Kyocera DuraForce XD is a phone that won’t let you down even when exposed to adverse conditions. Though, keep in mind that there are limits to what the device can handle.
