Donning the same rugged exterior like its close siblings, the DuraPlus opts for an even sturdier candybar form factor – as opposed to the flip styles we find with the DuraCore and DuraMax. Being the third phone from Kyocera to be a part of Sprint’s Direct lineup, the handset is certified to Military Standard 810G to protect it from even the harshest of punishments. Specifically, this tough one will be able to withstand dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, humidity, and blowing ran.
Well, if that’s not enough to show off its sturdy and impervious construction, it’s also worth noting that it’s also waterproof up to 30 minutes under 1 meter of water. Furthermore, it has a dedicated button to activate its built-in LED flash, thus, transforming it into a flashlight that’ll come in handy when the lights go out.
If you’re still not convinced about the toughness surrounding Kyocera’s Dura-series handsets, just check out the video below featuring that former pro-wrestler, Steve Austin, as he attempts to show the impervious nature of these handsets.
