NEVER NEEDS A RAINCHECK

Water and rain don't slow you down. They shouldn't stop your smartphone, either. DuraForce is waterproof*, not just water-resistant.

*Certified for IP68. IP68 certifies dust-tight protection and to withstand water immersion for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1.8 meters (6 feet). Requires that all ports and covers are firmly closed.

At Kyocera we stand by durability of our products.

Stay protected even if the unimaginable happens.

The Kyocera DuraForce is a go-anywhere, do-anything 4G LTE Android smartphone that's certified Military Standard 810G durable, IP68 dustproof and waterproof, and comes with a standard 2 year warranty.

BUILT TO A HIGHER STANDARD.
Military standard.

DuraForce has a high tolerance for pain with its Military Standard 810G rating. Whether you're at boot camp or camping with your crew, DuraForce is built to withstand rugged environments. Dust, shock, extreme temperatures, and blowing rain won't faze it – so accidents won't ruin your day.

A touch of genius

The DuraForce touchscreen works whether you're facing a snowy day on the slopes or a rainy day in the city. Glove and Wet Touchscreen Operation* lets you talk, text or open an app – even while wearing gloves or when the screen is wet. The feature is always activated, so there's no special setting to turn on. Plus dedicated hard keys for navigation and speakerphone offer quick access with gloved hands or large fingers. So go ahead, play in the rain and snap a pic – even while you're wearing gloves.

*Touchscreen can recognize input while wearing gloves to up to 3mm thick. The material, texture and thickness of the glove as well as how it fits your hand will impact performance. Individual performance may vary.

NO CROWD TOO LOUD WITH
SMART SONIC RECEIVER TECHNOLOGY

It sounds obvious, but not all phones deliver call clarity. No matter where you are with DuraForce – a busy restaurant or loud concert – you'll hear your phone conversations better. That's because it's equipped with loud, dual front speakers and Smart Sonic Receiver technology. Smart Sonic Receiver means you'll be able to hear where you never could before. The entire touchscreen acts as a speaker. When it's pressed against your ear, sound transmits as vibrations that go directly from your screen into your eardrum – bypassing background noise and enabling call clarity.
