This phone seems like a sensible choice for me.  Does anyone here own one?

6 months in, the phone has issues.  It is very durable, and unaffected by wet weather, however, the battery life is greatly diminished, and there are software glitches.  Not sure if this is an Android issue, or a result of the OS being augmented by Verizon, or Kyocera.  Settings are constantly changing on their own.  I will probably to restore to factory settings.  I fail to understand why I pad/phone batteries last for years, and other brands' batteries are impotent after a year.

Word! I resisted for decades getting a cell phone and only got one when work made me carry it! Then I resisted "upgrading" to a "smart phone", now it's my crack, can't put the damn thing down -- on the bright side there is tinder [emoji6]

I can't take a crap without my smart phone
Stalk softly and carry a green stick.

I would love to not have a phone period. That would be nice.

Smartphone and hotspot for computer for me or I don't get fed. It is what it is. But there is no signal in them deep dark hollows.
