The Bottom Line The competitively priced Kyocera Rise is fitting for texting enthusiasts looking for a starter smartphone with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Though you won't get blazing data or processing speeds on the Kyocera Event, as an affordable smartphone it's an excellent choice. If you’re looking for a compact Android handset, the LG Optimus F3 will satisfy prepaid customers. As an on-contract phone, however, look to other free smartphones that are better. Consider the Kyocera Hydro Edge if you're looking for a low-price splash proof phone, but skip it if its water resistance isn't a main priority for you. If you're in need of a low-cost prepaid phone, the Awe will satisfy, but if you want a quick-moving phone, move on.
