Get tough with AT&T's rugged Kyocera DuraForce

Phones
Hello everybody. I'm Lynn La from CNET and right not I have with me the Kyocera DuraForce for AT&T. This 4G LTE device has a 4.5 inch HD display that has a 1280 by 720 pixel resolution and its powered by a 1.4 gigahertz quadcore Snap Dragon 400 processor. It also has a non-removable 3.1 amp per hr battery that has a reported talk time of up to 17 hours. The handset also runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat and has some nifty software features from Kyocera, like a barometer that measures your current altitude and a compass. It's equipped with an eight mega pixel camera that can record 1080p HD video and a two mega pixel camera as well. On the top edge here, you'll find a shortcut key for the speakerphone. And a programmable button here that can enable the carriers push-to-talk feature. Users will also get 16 gigs of internal memory with the option to expand up to 32 gigs via a microSD card. And 2 gigs of RAM. As you can see the DuraForce is designed to be incredibly durable. It has a hefty and thick encasing and the hand fit is depth, shock, and water proof. In fact it can survive in up to 6 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. The device isn't functional underwater and you'll need to check that its ports are correctly sealed but it'll certainly survive a day a the pool or beach. Currently the phone is available for 50 dollars after you sign a 2 year agreement or 400 dollars without. Again I'm Lin and you've been checking out AT&T's Kyocera Duraforce.
