  • We have been hearing a lot about the sapphire screen in the new iPhone 6.
  • However Kyocera is already on it the screen is 4.7 inches in size with bezels that are enclosed in sapphire from one edge to another.
  • Sapphire is one of the toughest and is better than any other glass types event the new gorilla glass protection cannot be compared to the sapphire screen technology.
  • When the screen went other the process of crucial testing that includes dropping it on rocks, pavement, bricks and jamming the keys in t the screen the end result was pretty fascinating.
  • There were only three minute marks on the screen that cannot even be captured through a camera and this is exactly what everyone wants in their smartphones.
  • The outcome was really impressive hands down the shock proof or thick bezels did fulfil their jobs but no doubt the sapphire screen technology was the real giant.
  • If this technology is used in the normal usual flagship smartphones then there is no doubt that it will surely increase the durability and longevity of the phone.
  • The display of Kyocera phone is one of the finest though it is not 1080p but having 720p is not a problem either if you have the finest display qualities then all this does not matter.

  • Kyocera is on the run of improving its software quality and has actually made drastic modifications. The rugged exterior is understandable but having a rugged interior with superficial chrome shadows and neon lights the phone looks more from last year.
  • However in the new Kyocera phones several advances have been made starting off from the poorly designed software which has now been swapped with google now launcher.
  • There is a definite need to tone down the extra rugged interior because it that does not happen then the phone may not be able to compete with the recent leading manufacturers.
  • However whereas the daily usage of the phone is concerned it’s pretty smooth the software works fine and without any lags or slow down.
  • The camera is fine it produces good quality pictures but there is still a great room of improvement.
  • The Verizon LTE network has also modified and is now providing much better speed throughout the day.


Conclusively people may still hesitate to buy the phone because of its not so appealing exterior as compared to sleek chic phones available nowadays but those who are looking for a durable and strong phone that can actually bear all the circumstances than for them brigadier is a definite choice. Kyocera should now start using this sapphire screen technology in all of their smartphones so that other manufacturers can see and follow the footsteps as well, The sapphire screen technology is definitely much better than the hard screen displays we get to see these days this technology should overcome the techniques of today to provide better results.
