Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

This Android smartphone is TOUGH! Available in blue and black, the Kyocera Torque for Sprint is a superpowered smartphone. Running on the Android 4.0 operating system, this phone doesn't just have the ability to endure crazy situations involving water and falling from dangerous heights, but it's fast too! With the ability to surf the web quickly, you can access all the social networking sites that you love, just like any other Android smartphone.

This smartphone's main selling point is its incredible durability. As seen above in Wirefly expert Scott Lewis's video for the Kyocera Torque for Sprint, the phone still works after all that it went through: a washing machine cycle, freezing and unthawing, as well as being dropped onto the street from a two-story parking garage. So unless you plan on putting your phone through more than Wirefly did, it will more than exceed all of your expectations. Which is great for anyone who is tired of buying those big, bulky smartphone cases. Enjoy this smartphone's freedom!

Another great part about the Kyocera Torque for Sprint is its Smart Sonic Receiver, which gives you clearer phone calls even when you're in a loud environment. This is great for picking up a phone call during a concert, at the airport, or at the metro station. Your calls will always be heard on the Kyocera Torque for Sprint.

The dual cameras work very well, taking pictures quickly and then allowing you to share to social networking sites or via email and text. The Kyocera Torque also has great battery life and power-saving technology, ensuring that you get through the day without having to worry about charging it. The Kyocera Torque for Sprint is affordable from Wirefly, so get one before you drop and break your current one!


The Kyocera Torque for Sprint is an incredible smartphone that is just as tough as it looks. It's got all your favorite Google Android and smartphone features, including dual cameras, but is stronger than ever.
