When the Kyocera Echo was released, it proved to be quite a revolutionary device in terms of smartphones, as it was the first dual-screened smartphone, and even more impressive because Kyocera wasn’t exactly known for their smartphones. The device however has had its hits and misses, with some users ending up frustrated with the interface and also reports that battery life was far from stellar, to the point where a second battery had to be included out of the box. Despite everything, the Kyocera Echo was reportedly built to be quite durable, as seen in the video below.
However, despite all those claims, we highly suggest you do not attempt to discover the limits of your Kyocera Echo, unless of course you happen to be really clumsy and have dropped your device a couple of times, at which we’d like to hear from you to see those claims that Kyocera made are true!
A quick refresher for those who may have forgotten about the Kyocera Echo: The device came shipped with Android’s Froyo 2.2 while powered by a 1GHz single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with 512MB RAM plus around 512MB of ROM. It also came with an 8GB microSD card for extra storage. The dual display configuration measures 3.5-inches each and when put together, this makes the display 4.7-inches (diagonally) wide with a 960×800 resolution.
