First Look: Sprint Kyocera Echo

 

At an exclusive event in New York City, Sprint and Kyocera announced the first dual-screen smartphone running on Android, the Echo. The Android-powered device is the first smartphone comprised of two 3.5-inch 800x480 touchscreen displays connected by a...

Core apps can be used across two screens

Chunky, not all apps will be able to take advantage of the configuration

Review: Kyocera Echo, Android-Phone mit zwei Touchscreens (Videos)

 

Engadget-US hat in einer Review das erste Android-Phone mit Dual Screen, das Kyocera Echo , unter die Lupe genommen. Die zwei Bildschirme machen eine ein wenig plumpe Figur, und wie wir bereits berichtet haben, gibt es bisher nur sieben auf die beiden...

It's not exactly difficult to put into words what the Kyocera Echo is -- it's a dual-screened Android phone, after all -- but it's a wee bit more challenging...

Kyocera Echo review

 

There's not much to the Kyocera Echo's single-screen mode — in this light, it's just a bulky Android 2.2 phone with a 3.5-inch, 480 x 800 display and a 1GHz QSD8650 Snapdragon processor. It's...

Fast processor ; Simultasking works as advertised ; Hinge feels sturdy

Unpolished Android skin ; Hinge is awkward to use

Some polish but still an unrefined experiment

Kyocera Echo

 

The Kyocera Echo on Sprint ($200 with a two-year contract as of April 13, 2011) is the first dual-screen Android smartphone to hit the United States. With a design reminiscent of the Nintendo DS, the Echo seems to make a better tablet than a phone.

Running two applications side by side is useful ; Unique design and idea

Hardware feels gimmicky ; Dismal battery life

Since the Echo is more gimmick than substance, you might want to pass it over in favor of something with more power.

Kyocera Echo (Sprint)

 

The Android-based Kyocera Echo for Sprint is a flawed first attempt at an interesting concept. Not enough software supports dual-screen multitasking for this gutsy design to pay off.

Dual screens mean you can do two things at once. Dual-screen games are pretty awesome.

Not enough apps use the two screens. "Simultasking" apps don't work well together. Merged screens have bezel in center and odd aspect ratio. Short battery life in two-screen mode.

Seven of the built-in apps can simultask, operating independently on the two screens. They are the browser, contact book, e-mail (but not Gmail, and not the attachment viewer), gallery, SMS, dialer, and VueQue, a custom YouTube app. But even those...

Kyocera Echo (Sprint) review: Kyocera Echo (Sprint)

 

Kyocera Echo (Sprint)

The Kyocera Echo has a one-of-kind design that offers two screens and the ability to use two applications at once. Call quality is acceptable and the smartphone is quick and responsive.

The Kyocera Echo's design entails some usability quirks and we're concerned about long-term durability. The feature set is pretty average, it lacks 4G, and you'll have to wait for an upgrade beyond Froyo.

The Kyocera Echo's design offers some unique advantages, but its appeal is hampered by usability quirks and a lackluster feature set.

Kyocera Echo Review

 

It's been a while since we saw a truly unique product, especially on the hardware side. Looking to establish itself as a real player in the game, Kyocera- nee, Sanyo- has introduced the Echo, the world's first dual-screen phone. The Echo packs a pair...

The Kyocera Echo is more than just another Android 2.2 smartphone, it's all about offering a unique user experience.
