I will start off by saying i have been buying rugged phones from Verizon for about 20 years. First with the casio g'zones rock, boulder, commando, then the droid turbos, and most recently the cat s48c, so i will base my review comparing this phone to the cat. First off, the cat was rubberized, so it was very easy to hold and not slip, something the kyocera cannot claim. Another issue i had was even though the kyocera has "two LED lights", even on its brightest setting, it wasnt as bright as the cat. Not even close. Another issue i had was i would turn off wifi when i wasnt near a wifi source, and about an hour later, the wifi was turned back on. The last issue i had was the phone would randomly restart. The last straw was i was walking in a local big box store to feel my phone vibrating. I pulled it out of my pocket and it was in the middle of a full blown factory reset. Everything i had on the phone, downloaded pictures, texts, etc were completely wiped out, gone forever. All this in two weeks of owning the phone. Worst mistake ever. I went back to the cat phone until i find a new carrier. Verizon only caters to the big two phone makers, apple and samsung. If you dont want those, youre out of luck getting anything else.
Great phone but expensive
