Kyocera DuraForce for US Cellular is now available in carrier’s stores at price at $99 with contract
More and more manufacturers add extra durable phones to their offer; however, so far no company has managed to beat Kyocera when it comes to the number of rugged devices released each year. Kyocera believes that phones are meant to serve their purpose in diverse conditions and also that users shouldn’t be forced to sacrifice functionality for durability. That’s why the company combines both in its products. Kyocera’s latest offering, the DuraForce for US Cellular, is now available in carrier’s stores.
Kyocera Duraforce for US Cellular
If you are willing to sign a two-year contract with US Cellular, you can grab the Kyocera DuraForce for $99.99 after $300 discount. The phone is also offered with U.S. Cellular’s $0 down equipment installment option, in which case it will set you back $20 per month for 20 months. Finally, you can pick up the DuraForce outright without any obligations for $400.
The tough guy is IP68-certified for dust and water resistance which means that the device won’t let in any unwanted particles and will survive for up to 30 minutes in up to 6 feet (1.8 meter) of water. It also meets Military Standard 810G standard for protection against dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain, low pressure/high altitudes, solar radiation, salt, fog, and humidity. Moreover, the phone supports push-to-talk which is often used in business, government and other professions where walkie-talkie style communication is especially appreciated.
Under its indestructible hood, the DuraForce has a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in memory and a hefty 3,100 mAh battery which will let you use the phone for many hours without having to charge it. Other key features include a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapiexl front-facing shooter, microSD slot for storage expansion and dual front speakers. The handset ships with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
The Kyocera DuraForce appears to be a decent mid-range phone for physically active users. Going for a biking trip? Planning to spend a weekend in the mountains? Or maybe you just don’t want to constantly worry about accidentally destroying your phone? Whatever reasons you have, the DuraForce seems to be the answer.
