Very Cool Concept, Somewhat slow, Bad Battery Life.
UPDATE: I had originally rated this phone 3 stars, because of 3rd party application support for both screens. However, I learned that Kyocera has an app in the Play Store called "Tablet Extension" which allows apps to take advantage of both screens. This phone is the only phone of its type, and it is a very interesting concept. It unfolds into two screens, allowing for you to even run two stock apps at the same time. However, using both screens really hurts battery life, so I usually only use two screens when watching videos. Another thing to take into consideration is the heavy weight and bulky design of the Echo. It is quite a bit heavier than the average Android phone. So be aware that this is quite hefty to lug around all day. Also be aware the camera on this phone is perhaps the worst I have ever used. It has terrible focus, and can't capture any photo if the target is moving. Finally, performance wise this phone falls short. The processor isn't fast enough to take full advantage of the dual screens, and 512MB of RAM isn't enough to keep this phone from lagging. Battery life is bad, I am only getting about 4 1/2 hours on a full charge (using one screen). Speaker quality is good, and music quality also sounds alright. Data speeds seem normal for a 3G phone. So in summary, this phone is a cool concept, it just doesn't seem polished. The phone is very bulky, and it has average hardware. Battery life is really bad. But if you can get it cheap, it's still a hard deal to pass up. I reccomend you decide the pros and cons before you make a decision, because this isn't the phone for everyone. Read full review

Kyocera Echo Seerves Purpose as Interim Dual Screen Mini-Tablet
I bought this tablet-phone as a toy to try out as a dual screen device. The short of it is that I found I really do like it. Because I have a DroidX, I really didn't need or want another cell phone. So for the past month or so, I have been carrying it with me and using it as a part-time tablet. For $37, it serves the purposes I had in mind--field-testing a dual screen tablet, surfing the Web with a split screen, and checking email. I did purchase a new battery when I saw how poor battery life was using the one that came with the device. While battery life was extended some, it is obvious that the battery is the Kyocera Echo's Achilles heel. Having had an overall positive experience with the dual screen Echo, I am now in the market for a 7" double-screen tablet--perhaps the Toshiba Libretto W105 or the promised NEC Cloud Communicator or one of the Windows 8 dual screen tablet expected down the line. Thanks, Kyocera! Your Echo has served me well! Read full review

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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Overall, I give the Kyocera a 3.75 out of 5. Pros: Bright Responsive Touch Screens Double Screen Multitasking Solidly Built without "cheap" feeling plastics Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread Eco-mode (uses the light sensor to change the brightness autmatically) 5Mp Camera w/ zoom and flash Extra Battery + Charger Included 1GHz Processor keeps it moving with 0 slowdowns Cons: Very large and heavy phone 3G only Opening/Closing is awkward at first Has the all the style of a brick Semi-Poor - Adequate Battery Life Not all programs react well to tablet mode Retail price is insane Read full review

Echo is a decent phone for the price, almost a little tablet.
I bought this phone as an upgrade from my first smart phone. It's dual screen seemed a great idea, and, they are. There are not as many apps or games as I hoped that you can use both screens on and the middle when the screens are put together and be distracting. The battery life is fair, Not as long as a regular smart phone, you'll recharge it every day. Browsing is fast, download speeds are great. It has Flash which is perfect. I use Pandora a lot and the sound is clear. I can watch movies easily from HBO Go and Netflix. I'd say, i'm pretty happy with it. I'll upgrade later on, but for now, It's a pretty decent phone.
