Common Questions


Kyocera released the DuraXV on January 21, 2015.


The DuraXV price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare Kyocera DuraXV prices from around the web here on The Informr.

Kyocera backs up the DuraXV with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your DuraXV has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Kyocera support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find Kyocera's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop.

The Kyocera DuraXV is a solid, if somewhat simple, handset for Verizon Wireless customers. The phone delivers the goods if you're looking for a tough feature phone.

The handset is modern looking and made of durable materials that feel good to use. The size and weight are good, and the various buttons and controls work well for the most part. The DuraXV lives up to its IP68 rating and can survive a lengthy swim in addition to some hard knocks.

Call quality is decent, signal performance is excellent, and battery life is outstanding. Calls are aided by Kyocera's Smart Sonic Receiver technology, the 3G radio delivers acceptable data speeds, and there's no reason to complain about 2+ days of battery life.

The Brew software is dated and clunky, but it gets the job done. I wish the camera software and other apps were a bit more advanced and easier to use, but I understand the limitations of feature phones. The camera is acceptable for those random one-off shots you might take during the day, but won't replace a standalone camera. Then again, if you're considering the DuraXV you probably already know that.

The Kyocera DuraXV doesn't aim to be much, but hits the sweet spot with its feature set.
