Those are both really, really terrible...

Technically speaking the Kyocera is better.

Honestly, if you get either you're probably going to wind up hating Android for no reason.

This one, while being twice as much as the Samsung, is a much better phone...

Though it's only $129 here:

I don't follow. Both use the latest Android OS and are fairly spec'ed for a entry level Android. Why will one have a bad taste? Does 4.0 drag down lesser spec'ed phones?

Android doesn't run very well with lower specs.
Im not sure if it applies to jellybean since that is usually on super ultra retarded powerful phones anyways.....
and jellybean made Android more optimized or something.

if you dont mind used, go to swappa.com and grab one there, been buying phones there to resell in Mexico for pretty decent prices, older galaxy s phones run 100 or less, i got a few htc one x for 200, decently specd phones can be had for anywhere from 100 to 200 used

Ice Cream Sandwich is alright but with a single core processor your going to regret it. They're both pretty slow processors, with the Samsung being slower than the Kyocera. The Samsung I posted would be much more future proof and doesn't cost a ton more.

Don't expect the performance of a galaxy S4. Kyocera has the longest talk time.

Just be aware these are bottom barrel phones. I would not put too much faith into their media prowess. If you end up getting Flash on there, I predict it would not be pretty.

If it were me, I would choose the phone based on best camera quality.

Well I bought the Samsung but now have a different OT question...

I have to have a cell phone for my work; email, texting, the works.

How am I suppose to demo/test this new Samsung for 15 days if a person is only able to have 1 phone number associated with 1 phone at a time?


I'm not about to spend the painful time to swap everything over if I don't like this new Samsung.

I'm currently on Virgin Mobile and the Samsung is on Net10.
