Water-, shock-, and dustproof, the Kyocera DuraXT by Sprint is tough as nails and was designed for people working in rough environments.

The indestructable Kyocera DuraXT

The Kyocera DuraXT by Sprint is a clamshell feature phone that can withstand a good dunk or two.

A decent camera

The DuraXT's rear-facing camera, though only 3.2-megapixel, is surprisingly decent.

Comfortable keys

The Kyocera DuraXT's keypad is comfortable and graciously spaced out.

Getting a handle

Because it's a rugged device, the DuraXT is on the bulky side, weighing in at 5.3 ounces.

Sealed and locked

The toggle switch in the rear keeps the Kyocera DuraXT's back plate secured and sealed.

No use for headphones

The DuraXT sports a 2.5mm headphone jack -- useful for PTT headsets, but incompatible with your standard pair of headphones.

Rubber encasing

The DuraXT's rubber build ensures that it'll keep ticking after a good beating, but it's not the most attractive handset.
