From what I read, the Kyocera Cadence LTE supports even less bands than the VN220 (aka Exalt LTE). Based on specs It seems like its only (or main) advantage over the VN220 is an outside screen.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I dont see how to go to the home screen or review messages while talking on the phone. (you can compose and send emails while on the phone, but cant view them)

No email attachments

No tethering without a plan.
Seems like the list of pros is getting bigger,

On Kyocera cadence you can easily go to home screen, send/view messages while phone calls,
You can open email attachment,
You can set up mobile hotspot without a plan.
