Design and display

Retro leather case

Kodak’s retro-styled camera case looks great, offering top line protection with its scratch-resistant microfiber lining and strong leather build. It also comes with a hand-stitched neck and shoulder strap to avoid accidental drops. 

Sturdy build

The Kodak Ektra is a robust smartphone, with strong metallic edges and a rounded grip on the back - making it look more like a traditional camera. Inside the grip is a speaker, and on top is a two-step shutter button for precision photography. 

Android through and through

Ektra runs on Google’s operating system, Android – the most popular mobile OS in the world. And there are some unique Kodak features on board, like the dynamic wallpapers and loads of camera options including a Super 8 film filter. 


It’s all in the name

Kodak has been invested in camera manufacturing for over 120 years, so it’s no surprise that this smartphone has one of the best lenses around. At 21MP you’ll be able to capture high quality images, even in low light, but if you need extra back up there’s a dual LED flash on board, too. 

Kodak special features

As well as the impressive specs, the camera app is jam-packed with editing software to make your shots even better. Popular editing app, Snapseed, is built in too, so you don’t even have to be online to tune up your favourite photos. 

Under the hood

Speedy charging

A reversible USB Type-C charger comes with the Ektra smartphone, which is the latest in USB technology. It lets you power up the 3,000mAh battery quicker than ever before, and you won’t get it round the wrong way as it’s symmetrical. 


Inside Kodak’s smartphone is a giant X-20 deca-core processor, giving you loads of power to keep going with 4K filming. It’s backed up by 3GB RAM, meaning you’ll never be slowed down when using a few different apps at the same time.

Kodak Ektra with retro case is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better after software updates Original expert reviews were not favourable but subsequent software updates have fixed most of the criticisms, especially about the camera. Decent phone for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make your own mind up. I am writing a review as, when I was researching this phone before purchasing it, there wasn't a lot of information out there and a fair amount of what I found gave mixed reviews, some of which were quite negative. I took a chance and bought the phone a couple of months ago anyway, which came with a retro style tan leather carry case, and I have been pleasantly surprised. The phone is fantastic for my needs (taking snaps and videos of my son and whilst out and about, surfing the internet, social media, Google Maps for directions in the car, to make calls, etc.) and I have no idea why so many people have slated it in the way that they have. I wanted to write this review so that anyone else who fancies a change from the usual range of hyped up phones, will not be instantly put off from giving it a try. The camera is brilliant for daily use and is easy to use. Friends and family have commented on the quality of the images I have captured. Obviously, it isn't going to be as good as a fancy DSLR camera but that should be common sense - it is just a phone after all, but for general daily use and a bit of fun editing the shots you have taken, it is simply fantastic. All of the problems that reviewers described the phone to have around the time it was launched have been put right via phone updates. When I first turned on the phone, it went through a series of free android and phone updates and I actually saw the problems I had read about disappear as I used it over the first couple of days (for example the annoying shutter sound on the camera has now gone, the camera closing when your hand brushes the exit screen icons no longer happens as they are disabled from use when the camera function is open, etc.) I have found the phone to have a good battery life - it will last for well over a day with regular use of the camera, internet, Google map directions in the car and for phone and video calls. It charges very quickly compared to my last phone, the Samsung Galaxy S5. It is easy to use (I am in no way an expert and it has been fine for me) and it is a bit different to the phone that every man and his son has. Quite a few people have noticed it when I have been using it and have commented on how nice it looks in the case and what a nice phone I have, etc. All I can say is that I am glad I gave it a go and thought it needed an honest, uninfluenced review that showed it in the positive light it deserves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Ektra I have been enjoying the Kodak Ektra for a month now, and have only one gripe. The so very cool retro case covers the proximity sensor. This causes the screen to blank out upon making, or receiving a call. The camera is significantly better than my wife's iPhone 6S, or the Droid Turbo that it replaces. I might not pop full retail for this phone, but the street price made it difficult to pass up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid this phone like the plague. Iphone 7 has a far better camera. Quality reduces instantly after using for a few weeks.
