Pros Good value for the Money
Cons High Radiation Output (1.55 W/kg). The max. FCC allows is 1.6 W/kg.
Pros A good phone for for it's cheap price.. great as a temporary phone. No major problems.
Cons Keys are very loud when texting. Phone is all plastic. Back cover and battery come out almost every time I drop it.
Summary Phone is simple and cheap.. though you may be annoyed by it if your a big texter.
Pros Calling Features, Battery Life, and Sleek Design
Cons LCD Display, Not many features that could have been offered through this phone, Volume/Speakerphone.
Summary Bottom line the Kyocera Jax is for old people...just kidding. The Jax is a great phone for someone to have that just wants to be able to call friends and family hearing them clear and distinct on the phone, but I don't recommend it if you want something that has a lot of features and quality speakers. The speaker system in the phone is kind of weird, its hard to get it play loud, especially when you playback your voice memos or whatever its just kind of nerve racking to have to hold it up to your ear to hear the speakerphone. All in all just a basic phone.
Pros Small, compact, nice screen, nice features, feels good in hand, easy to get used to.
Cons Clickety buttons
Summary I just bought the Jax today and so far i'm in love with it. I used to have the VM Flare but the phone would constantly freeze up on me. So far, I have had absolutely no problems with the Jax. I love the way it feels in my hands, it's small and I like that. It also has a lock so you can't accidentally call people. Anyways, for me, this phone is perfect because I'm really only a texter and it's great for texting. Not only that, when I do talk the sound is very clear, speakerphone is too. Also, when you download your own ring tones, they sound amazing for this little phone.
Bottom line, this phone is amazing for 15 dollars I would recommend it to anyone! (If you can have a phone w/o all the bells and whistles.)
Pros Easy to use, lightweight, good menu design, very easy to text.
Cons Feels a bit cheap.
Summary I got this phone for $14.99 at Wal-Mart not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. I've had every type of phone from an expensive PDA device that did practically everything to the cheap basic phones without a camera even, and this is one of the better basic phones you can buy. The screens and menus are pretty cool, for one thing, but the best part about this phone is the ease of use when you text. It is incredibly easy to text on--even easier than some phones that have full keyboards. The buttons just work so well for it, and I find myself texting away on this little thing like crazy. I love it. On the downside, the phone feels like it's made of pretty cheap plastic, and does not feel like it would withstand being dropped on a hard surface or be mistreated in any way. So take care of it. I had to get this phone to reduce my budget when switching to Virgin Mobile. No, it doesn't have all those cool, fancy features most people want with their cell phones nowadays like a camera and applications, etc. So if you want a toy or something to "look cool" this, this won't do it. But if you need a good phone for basic usage (talking and texting), this is one of the better inexpensive ones I've seen. After all, you can use your computer to get on the Internet and do all that other stuff at home.
