Well, you’ll be in good hands with the Kyocera Brigadier – that’s because its beefy sized 3100 mAh battery has a lot of longevity with its charge.

Not surprisingly, Kyocera excels at what it does best – making ruggedized phones that are meant to withstand all that life has to throw at us.

Reviews Word on the street for the Kyocera Brigadier

We’ll definitely say that it’s different, but we wouldn’t go as far to say that it can entice us like the modern designs of other contemporary interfaces.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Videos play smoothly, while its potent brightness makes easy to view in the great outdoors.

Secondly, it can’t pull out enough detail to confidently tell us it’s a serious shooter.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
Sure, it’s able to compile decent shots outdoors when lighting is in abundance, but details are a bit softer in tone.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)


Good looks aren’t in its DNA, but its rugged construction gives it some serious protection.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
Still, at the end of the day, it’s still a phone that largely targets one specific demographic, due to its rugged look.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
In all fairness, though, it’s fit for people who want a seriously rugged phone, seeing that its construction meets military standard 810g to give it protection against dust, shock, vibration, water immersion, and even solar radiation – in the event that ever occurs in your lifetime, of course.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)


Thanks to the dedicated camera button, we’re taken right into the app, which boasts a pleasant array of shooting modes and manual control.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
Before a final result is given to us, the process of taking a snapshot is also worrisome, as it takes some time for the camera to load, focus, and take the shot.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)
High hopes were in tow with this camera, but sad to say, it falls flat like much of the previous things from Kyocera.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)


For a rugged phone, we’re ecstatic to know that its battery life is long lasting enough to provide even the most demanding users with plenty of juice.
by PhoneArena (Aug, 2014)


Even though it’s meant to play nicely on Verizon’s network, it’s a global phone that’s compatible to work overseas.
