The power within

The Kyocera Event won't blow anyone away with top-tier specs. But it is a decent entry-level smartphone from Virgin sporting a reasonable $79.99 price tag, Android 4.0, and a 3.2-megapixel camera.

The 3.5-inch HVGA touch screen has a 480x320-pixel resolution. Above the display is a notification light and below are three hot keys that light up white when in use: back, home, and menu.

The phone measures 4.5 inches tall and 2.4 inches wide, and weighs 4.1 ounces. Due to its small size, it fits easily in front jean pockets and small bags.

It has a thickness of 0.46 inch. The right edge houses a sleep/power button and an indention to help pry off the back plate.

The back features a small audio speaker, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with flash to the right of that. Inside, you can access the battery and microSD card slot, which accepts cards of up to 32GB. Unfortunately, you'll need to remove the battery first to insert the card underneath it.
