It is a great phone. All around its pretty amazing. It however restarts and shuts off through different periods of the day... a bit of a hastle, but overall, its pretty cool to use two with two applications at once,its cool to use as a tablet,its great for movies and games.

The Kyocera Echo another taste for technology
The Kyocera Echo (Sprint)has features like phones and tablets with dual screen. I have been able to watch YouTube while browsing the internet.<br>when I use it I feel it looks like a laptop.<br>easy text writing because the low screen become keyboard.

Multi-taskers & Tech lovers: Your phone has arrived. Want pretty? Not here
The Kyocera Echo from Sprint is a phone that captures the intangibles of why we love technology as much as we do.<br><br><br>The phone is significantly thicker than any other phone on the market. It's also about 1.5x heavier than the iPhone and 3x that of a traditional cell phone. The design is altogether on par with Nokia mid 90's era phones. With all that, I still would recommend this "phone" to anyone who is on the go or just enjoys new tech.<br><br><br><br>The ability to browse on the lower screen and have paypal or my email open on the top screen, monitoring and interacting with them both real time, means that the days of alt-tabbing are over. Without a doubt this is the feature that will both take the most time to get used to as well as be the selling point of this phone.<br><br><br><br>Not every application can be dual ran, the 7 main programs (email,messaging,browser,contacts,phone,gallery) are the only ones with this ability, but they really are the only ones that need it.<br><br><br>Want to respond to an email in the middle of a youtube video used to mean I had to swap to the email program, write my email, send it and then tab back to the youtube app and finish my video. Now, I simply put the email program on the bottom screen and watch the video on the top.<br><br><br>The possibilities of this technology is limited only by how you will use it, I'm sure there are some people who find the form much more important than the function, but I personally will gladly take the extra weight, size and lack of style if it means giving me multi-tasking 2.0.<br><br><br>The hinge on the back side of the phone is a little unwieldy, there are three distinct "bump stops" along the path of the hinge that click into place pretty readily, but getting used to opening the phone to the full 2 screen tablet mode is quite challenging the first few days, especially with one hand. It gets to be second nature after a few hundred times though, so its not something to worry about.<br><br><br>When a phone comes with 2 batteries and 2 chargers, it doesn't bode well for the longevity of the phone. They claim that the Echo has a 5 hour talk time, and honestly I can see that. What they don't say though, is that is with the inside screen closed and the outside screen in sleep. Using the phone as anyone would, you will get around 3 - 3.5 hours of use or just about 2 hours of heavy full brightness both displays. This may seem quite low, but remember, you are actually powering two phones with the battery in a sense, so its on par.<br><br><br>The second battery and case is actually quite nice and well designed, its small and slim stature allow it to be put into a pocket or purse without any trouble, some aftermarket cases are coming with the battery storage build in as well.<br><br><br>Overall, I give the Kyocera a 3.75 out of 5.<br><br>Pros:<br><br>Bright Responsive Touch Screens<br>Double Screen Multitasking<br>Solidly Built without "cheap" feeling plastics<br>Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread<br>Eco-mode (uses the light sensor to change the brightness autmatically)<br>5Mp Camera w/ zoom and flash<br>Extra Battery + Charger Included<br>1GHz Processor keeps it moving with 0 slowdowns<br><br><br>Cons:<br><br><br>Very large and heavy phone<br>3G only<br>Opening/Closing is awkward at first<br>Has the all the style of a brick<br>Semi-Poor - Adequate Battery Life<br>Not all programs react well to tablet mode<br>Retail price is insaneRead full review
