Kyocera DuraXV Plus Review: Key Features

Last Updated:

When it comes to mobile devices, some people prefer to stick to simplicity, or don't care about the unnecessarily complex "functionality" a smartphone lends itself to. The expensive cost is certainly enough to turn most people away. Straddling a fine line between feature phone and smartphone, the Kyocera DuraXV Plus packs a lot of tech and perks to be impressed about, but won't persuade you if you are more interested in a higher end device.

As a flip phone running Android's Nougat software, it seems like the DuraXV can't really decide on what it wants to be. For those who want a basic phone for talk and text that can last whatever life throws at you, however, the Kyocera DuraXV Plus is a great choice.

The biggest selling point of this phone is that it meets military standards ruggedness and durability. With reinforced housing, the DuraXV can withstand shock, vibration, blowing rains, and temperature extremes. It's dustproof and waterproof too and has a decent enough battery to stay active for as long as you are.

The DuraXV is certainly a meaty device with its clamshell design, but it's not overly clunky and large. It's built compact and feels great to hold in your hand or in your pocket, and the rounded edges prevent accidental slippage (and even if you do drop it, it'll be just fine!).

Although the Kyocera DuraXV is purely a function over form kind of device, that doesn't mean there aren't useful features onboard that make it more than just a machine for calling and texting. The 5-megapixel front camera takes decent photographs, but don't expect a suite of editing and sharing tools.

Other tools include a built-in flashlight, GPS, Voice Command, and even a rudimentary mobile Web app. Don't expect to be blown away by this though: the DuraXV is all about the basics.

There are no email clients on the device, meaning you'll have to navigate through the Web app to read emails. You can choose to download an actual email app, but it requires a $5 monthly fee to use. Social media is also nothing special. You'll see Facebook and Twitter on screen, but won't have access to their full functionality. Instead, you're limited to updating your status or sending a photo.
