The Kyocera DuraForce Pro is a ruggedized smartphone from Verizon designed to withstand tough conditions in the field.

The DuraForce Pro features a Sapphire Shield 5-inch display, available exclusively through Verizon. The durable display is made of pure sapphire crystal which is rated second only to diamonds in mineral hardness, making the display highly resistant to scratches.

The smartphone is also waterproof and can withstand depths of up to 6 ½ feet for as long as 30 minutes. The phone can even detect when its underwater and automatically switches to Underwater Mode, moving the camera controls from the touchscreen to the phone’s physical buttons.

For security, the smartphone has a biometric fingerprint scanner. It is certified for use in hazardous conditions for job sites where concentrations of flammable gas, vapors or mists are not normally present in explosive concentration but may exist.

The phone is running the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system and features 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded to 128GB with an external microSD. The DuraForce Pro has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera.

The Importance of Positivity

By Lauren Fletcher
