Top durability features of Brigadier

Get peace of mind with Sapphire Shield™ display, a Verizon exclusive . The 4.5–inch HD screen features manufactured sapphire to resist scratches and withstand frontal drops.* Brigadier carries an IP68 industry rating because it protects against dust and immersion for up to 30 minutes in 6 feet of water.†

Brigadier's exterior is reinforced for added durability. It also meets US Department of Defense standards (Military Standard 810G) for protection against dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain, low pressure, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity and water immersion.

Noisy places are no match for this smartphone

Hear calls in loud places where traditional speakers fail, such as crowded cafes, concerts and sporting events. Kyocera's Smart Sonic Receiver technology is so effective, you can even hear clearly while wearing a helmet or ear protection when the phone is resting near your ear. The Brigadier also has loud, dual front speakers, activated by a dedicated Speaker Key on the top of the phone. Peak volume is 100dB, or as loud as a jackhammer from 6.5 feet away.

Reasons to pick Brigadier

  • Superfast Verizon 4G LTE, which is America's largest 4G LTE network.
  • Dedicated keys for navigation, speakerphone and camera offer quick access while a programmable side key helps you access contacts, messages and more, even when you're wearing gloves‡ or your hands are wet.
  • The Android™ operating system and access to great content, games and apps at Google Play™.
  • Two cameras (2–megapixel front– and 8–megapixel rear–facing) that shoot photos and video.
  • Qi–enabled wireless charging, which adds convenience when you power up the 3,100 mAh battery.
  • Supports Near Field Communication (NFC) for seamless sharing and pairing to accessories.
  • Dura Grid widget offers popular settings and features, and is uniquely designed with high contrast, large icons for improved outdoor visibility and easy access with gloved hands.

*Second only to diamonds in mineral hardness, sapphire is virtually scratchproof and provides outstanding protection against impact damage. It also delivers exceptional protection from damaging "real world" scenarios, ranging from keys in a pocket to a face–first drop onto rocks, where independent lab tests show it to be far less likely to break than leading strengthened touch–panel glass.

† Phone will not operate under water and should be dried as quickly as possible when wet. To ensure that the phone is waterproof, make sure the charger/port, audio jack and card slot covers are always properly sealed.

‡Recognizes touch input while wearing gloves up to 3 mm thick. The material, texture and thickness of the glove as well as how it fits the hand will impact performance. Individual results may vary.
