The Bottom Line 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 in need of a low-cost prepaid phone, the Awe will satisfy, but if you want a quick-moving phone, move on. The competitively priced Kyocera Rise is fitting for texting enthusiasts looking for a starter smartphone with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE is a good Android choice, but for the same price, the LG Viper gives you greater camera power. Pass on the slow, disappointing Samsung Galaxy Ring in favor of LG's superior Optimus F3.
