      @RedEmpire did not swap it. the crack is still the same, unchanged despite my best efforts to increase it's spread, and the issue with the constant freezing seems to have gone away with an update. the only problem i'm having anymore is every once and a great while it complete freezes up, black screen, and wont shut off or do anything. holding the power button and one of the volumes hard reboots it and it's fine for a time after that. overall decent phone, strong af. camera quality is android.

      hold off and read more reviews. i bought it because i had the old one which i dropped off a 70ft tower onto gravel. it survived the fall with a chunk taken out of it, but it got wet again after that and screwed up the screen. so i upgraded to this one, more expensive 5g phone, and i'm going to take it back and have a discussion with these people. the phone constantly freezes up. every other time i pick it up i have to put it to sleep and unlock it again over and over just to check the weather or write a text. and it took a 70ft fall for my old one to crack the screen, this one cracked within 3 weeks of having it, and it happened while it was in my pocket! not a happy camper.

    Had the first Duroforce Pro, love that phone. Found that camera button useful at waterparks/pools taking pics of my kids. Could do it as snap a pic, or start/stop video recording depending on what the camera mode was set to. Of course, when it was released it was already well behind on hardware/software... which quickly got worse. Phone still works like a charm, and has no noticeable damage to it after years of abuse from 2 people using it(my son uses it now). Just software/hardware wise... its a little slower then you would like.

    I just bought this phone. I had the old one, dropped it from 70 feet onto gravel. it survived the fall with chunk taken out of the screen and side, and continued to function, but the screen began to blossom and became unresponsive when it got wet. so i upgraded to this one, thinking it would do me good as well. i am very disappointed. constantly freezes up for starters. every time i use it i have to put it to sleep and wake it up several times to continue to interface with the phone. and the super duper scratch resistant sapphire shield super screen is already cracked. happened while in my pocket. right on the hole they cut out for the speaker. phone is a lemon.

    Watching this video on my duraforce right now... Really solid phone, however camera cannot record anything past 1080 unless you want 1 fps footage, minor screen issues with refreshing and losing touch ability (until you turn off and back on), still usable and very sturdy however. Perfect if that's where your priorities are. I got mine the week they came out (I'm a welder)

    I've had my duraforce pro 2 for 2 years plus and other than the battery starting to wear down more quickly as of late, but still lasting better than some smartphones I've had in the past, it has been fantastic. I work construction and the dust is constant. I have dropped it hundreds of times. The screen is as perfect as it was on day one. I do keep a protector on it but I probably don't need to. It's a little slow with the processor and memory, I'm hoping if I get this new one that will change somewhat. I sure do wish and would pay more to have a really good processor though...

      @Yuvraj Singh Nobody because it would shatter instantly. Sapphire is the best material for screens because most people don't have level 9 objects anywhere near their phones. It wouldn't get scratched by sand or mud because sapphire is harder than the minerals. Its slightly softer than diamond and iamond is so hard that it is too brittle.

There is only one issue I have had with the phone and that is don't let it get to warm otherwise it may get a little difficult to use when it come to the touch feature on the screen. Thank you so much for making these videos.

    You just helped me find my next phone! I've been looking at the Samsung's, and the iPhones and all the reviews are about 50/50! That just seems pretty crappy to me. So, This is a PHONE! I had a Kyocera way back in the beginning of the mobile phones coming out. I only gave it up when they stopped supporting the OS. Very sad too, it was a great phone. It even had a COAT! A little leather coat. :)

  • pasquale libassi
    pasquale libassi 18 days ago

    I've had the pro 2 (non 5g) for about 3 years. It was great until the update before last.since then the phone has been shutting itself off at the worst times. Then when attempting to restart, it will shutdown again after the Verizon screen. Sometimes as many as 50 times (not exaggerating). Kyocera does not respond to emails, and if you're lucky enough to speak to a human, they are no help at all. Eventually trying to get you to send in the phone. Depending on what they find they may charge 450 dollars (last tried about 6 months ago.) The operation of the phone has always been clunky and the camera is kind of embarrassing. What has kept me from replacing is this amazing screen. I'm a fleet mechanic and I am extremely rough on phones. Drop them off the top of trucks. Screwdrivers, guns and knives in my pocket, still totally pristine condition. Now after looking at Kyocera's latest model, I see they moved away from the sapphire glass. I'm now thinking about Samsung Xcover. Any suggestions?
    BTW, when I finally do retire this phone, I'm going to hit the screen with a 22lr. Partly to see how the sapphire reacts, partly for all the times it left me trying to restart it for an hour while I should have been doing everyday tasks.

    I own a Duraforce Pro and have been on the fence as to if I want to just go with the II or the ultra 5g. I'm not certain I want to spring for the extra money the 5g costs because we don't have real 5g in the US and because I don't actually care about it anyhow. Either way my first gen has been an amazing phone and I couldn't be happier to have abandoned samsung since they decided to become crapple 2.0. I do need to make a decision soon though, I'm sick and tired of dealing with micro usb and my car stereo/nav refuses to work half the time because it isn't usb c.

    Very cool! Although isn't Sapphire more brittle than glass (so more susceptible to cracking or smashing) - which is why a lot of phone manufacturers don't use it

    I bought a Nexus 6P at launch. Your video was one of the first I watched after I bought it. I was a touch salty, because I loved my new phone and didn’t like seeing a flaw out of the gate. I’m grateful, because I took care to never sit on it. You also earned a sub with your objective testing. Fast forward to now.. and I’m anxiously awaiting my Jerry Knife. Thanks for all of your great work, and the entertainment you’ve provided!

    I was thinking maybe a cool video would be to order a few knockoff phone from China and take them apart to see where they cut corners.
    Thanks 👍

    My watches are all made out of sapphire glass. I have used them drilling concrete, going through thin tunnels and banging my watch against the ceiling, abusing it completely ridiculously where normal wear is not included. It's not scratched, it's flawless, but the titanium bracelet is ful of scratches. Sapphire glas withstands everything, where nothing else does

    Wow, did not expect Bitdefender to sponsor this vid. Yeah great protection and privacy but I would not say it does not compromise my device. Bitdefender eats up disk usage like hell with HDD drive. But still im a big fan of Bitdefender.

    Did my ears hear correctly? Scratches beyond level 8?! Sometimes I am glad to be living in this timeline. Also, would had loved to know how much that phone costs! Especially since it's by far the most durable phone to ever exist on this channel!
    Edit: Looked it up myself and really only $1,200 for it!? I'm about to get me one then, lol!

    I got the first one you did in 2018 the duraforce 2 the camera lens broke from a drop at work it fell right on a nail sticking out of a board. But all around this is one tuff phone. Not a scratch on the screen even with all the dust. Speaker could be louder. I do work on a construction site. It's hard to hear the boss sometimes.

    I beg to differ about it being durable... plastic might scratch easier, but it's also less likely to break...
    The most durable phone would be one with a plastic screen that won't break as easily with a hard screen protector... giving the best of both worlds... with the screen protector being easy to remove...

    I bought this phone with the highest of hopes in Kyocera, the sapphire screen, and it's water resistance. No case needed and I brought it swimming. No scratches!
    WARNING: Anyone considering this phone should look up all the overheating problems people experience while charging and the temporary (won't start) bricking problems. I'm thrilled I got $350 when I sold it back to Verizon. Research this phone before buying.

    Got the duraforce pro 2 in 2019 cause of your review on it. Still working fine and scratch free. Only issue I have is with the charging flap. The jack flap doesn't get used a whole ton. The flap on the charging port still closes, just a touch loose. If you use the wireless charging feature that'd be a non issue.

    Dear MrJerryRig,
    I would like to see a phone made with sapphire glass on the front and a full titanium body. Premium style, not like those phones who look like a CAT device. In particular, the design should comprise a complete titanium encasing (even the interior, under the display, with only a small hole for the ribbon cable), waterproof resistance and if it is necessary to include wireless charging the spiral should be put outside the case covered with more glass. Do you think is something feesible?
