OK, got the Kyocera...and let me put it this way - if I were to write a review, not sure if it would belong here or in the "jokes" thread. The first nd most obvious thing is the predictive text - in what world does typing in 2-6-3 have the phone come up with "cod" as being more likely than "and?" And if there's a 1-letter word that I can get by typing the "2" key...yup, you got it, the most likely guess by the Kyocera is the word..."b"!

Got the phone on Friday. Will elaborate  more tomorrow.

On the first glance its not impressive.

Max 2000 contacts so it couldn't sync all my google contacts. When you are on a call you can not access any other screen / app like text email or whats app.

Also, can Facebook be removed? Any way to get Hebrew/Yiddish input (even if only with Google Assistant voice recognition?

Not sure how dumb the architect of this job had to be to figure out that once I'm at a certain contract let's say it starts with letter Z, there's no way to get back to the search field other by wasting 15 minutes to move up to the top of the contacts
