With an attractive new design, the Kyocera Slider SE-47 has been making waves in the cell phone market. But is it all show? Highs: 65,000 color screen, full-duplex speaker-phone, personalized menu features, and good price. Lows: unprotected display, hard to press keys, and a lack of pre-installed games. Lowdown: Interesting phone with innovative features, but its flaws keep it from being a great phone.
It's been a while since we have seen such an innovative cool-looking design CDMA phone from Kyocera. Back in the 90's, when the cellular boom was starting to grow, they were responsible for releasing such handsets as QCP 1920/2700 and the infamous Q-phone the Q-800/1900. As far as the larger handsets go, QCP 1900/2700 were truly the pioneers of the Digital-Handset era, but as far as the small and compact models -- well, that was a different story. (In fact, this reviewer remembers owning one of their smaller Q-phones and after paying the top dollar for it, the performance was very disappointing to say the least.)
After seeing a few low-budget phones for a few years from them, we finally have something that looks quite interesting in design and sports some cool features. Enter the Kyocera SE-47 slider. Read on to find out just exactly how well this new phone does in our review.
