Modern smartphones may be powerful, but they are also highly susceptible to chips and scratches. If you’re tired of damage caused by even the slightest impact, you might want to switch to a rugged solution.
There are numerous options available, but few models are as robust as Kyocera DuraForce. Let’s assess the gadget’s durability and all other crucial features.
Kyocera DuraForce Key Features
Kyocera DuraForce offers a wide array of admirable qualities:
The gadget is enclosed by thick rubber and plastic. Due to this layer of protection, it’s heavier than most handheld devices (7.07 ounces). Nevertheless, it doesn’t feel heftier than a standard smartphone in a sturdy case.
To the left lies the volume button and programmable key that can be customized to launch any app (e.g., the camera or flashlight). The lower-left corner contains a loop perfect for securing a lanyard. In the upper section, you’ll find a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, a power button, and a shortcut for your audio speaker. The right side features the microSD and SIM card slots, while the bottom is home to the charging port.
DuraForce is waterproof, shock, and dust-resistant. It boasts the IPX8 and IPX5 certifications, meaning the gadget can survive submersion in six feet of water for half an hour. But before you dunk the smartphone in water, you’ll need to seal and secure the ports correctly. Otherwise, liquid intrusion may spell disaster for the electrical components.
Impact resistance is also admirable. You can drop the product on wood floors or even cement, and it will come out unharmed. The force won’t crack or damage the screen or other sensitive parts, but the plastic casing may display a few marks. Nonetheless, there’s no question the device will remain fully functional.
DuraForce comes with a high-capacity 3,240mAh Li-Ion battery. It’s a non-removable model that usually delivers around 480 hours in standby mode. You can also get up to 19 hours of talk time, which is more than enough to get you through the day. The battery also supports fast charging.
Your DuraForce shouldn’t let you down in terms of multitasking and watching HD videos. It runs on the Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 with eight cores, four of which operate at 1.5 GHz. You also get 3GB of RAM, further facilitating speed and load times.
Ample Room for Your Files
Kyocera DuraForce isn’t impressive regarding storage, but it should be enough for your tunes, images, and other files. There are 32GB of flash memory, and you can add more room with your MicroSD card.
Despite focusing on sturdiness, the manufacturer didn’t neglect the camera. The primary and selfie cameras offer 13 and 5MP, respectively. Plus, there’s an LED flash, HDR, and panorama feature.
As Strong as It Gets
Kyocera DuraForce can be a tremendous boon to any user. The greatest benefit is the robust design that doesn’t fall victim to heavy impact, water, and dust. On top of that, you can enjoy a fast CPU, terrific battery, and capacious storage. All of which makes for a highly reliable rugged device.
