First Phone: The Kyocera Torque XT
The Kyocera Torque XT
Kyocera's Torque XT is a mix of low- and mid-range features packed within a dust-tight, waterproof (IP67), and shock-resistant (MIL810G) casing -- behind which is the Enterprise Mobility Management software for those who plan to use it for work. Its outdoorsy profile also includes the Smart Sonic receiver technology and a MaxiMZR-equipped 2500mAh battery. Its hardware is led by a 20GB internal memory (1GB RAM), with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and LTE connectivity to boot. The Torque XT also comes with programmable side buttons and one for the Push-to-Talk feature.
