Kyocera has a very unique approach for this phone. Dual screens. Yes, that’s right, there’s the main screen for most functions, and a slide-out screen that works as a keyboard, or a second screen for multitasking. If you’re browsing the web, you can simultaneously text on the other screen. Also allows for a full keyboard as well as a separate full screen to see the text, great for emailing. You’re no longer limited to a line or two of text at a time without scrolling.

Some of the buttons move around based on the orientation of the phone, but this is pretty easy to figure out and use. The larger amount of screen real estate is a more tablet-like experience on this phone. Battery life is affected by both screens being on, but Sprint and Kyocera provide a spare battery and charging dock because of this.
