Features Of The Kyocera DuraForce Pro
This phone features a shatter resistant 5" IPS LCD 16 M color screen with 1080 x 1920 pixel screen resolution. In comparison, the Sonim XP8 has the same screen specification except for the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 that the DuraForce Pro doesn't have.

The Kyocera DuraForce Pro rocks an awesome dual front-firing stereo speakers located at the bottom. It gets very loud, clear and is well capable of being audible even in noisy environments.
