The KODAK EKTRA is compatible with GSM carriers only. GSM is one of the major cellular networks used in the US and internationally. In the US, the major GSM carriers are AT&T and T-Mobile.
Verizon and U.S. Cellular use CDMA and are not compatible with the KODAK EKTRA Smartphone. If you are unsure whether your KODAK EKTRA is compatible with your current carrier and network, then please check with your carrier.
If you’re an Apple iPhone user and you’re looking to switch to the KODAK EKTRA Smartphone then Google takes care of all the hard work so you don’t need to worry about moving all your data, contacts, photos and messages. All you need to do is download the Google Drive for iOS App, back up your content and then log in to your new Android phone. Google will then download all your photos, calendar dates and contacts and set them up for you.

A SIM card, also known as a Subscriber Identity Module, is a smart card that stores data for cellular subscribers. Such data includes user identity, location and phone number, network authorization data, personal security keys, contact lists and stored text messages. SIM cards enable the user the freedom to easily swap their card into any unlocked GSM phone at any time, or even keep their phone and change to another GSM carrier.
Yes. The KODAK EKTRA is an Android smartphone, so it has full access to the Google Play Store where you can choose from millions of apps including, for example, Facebook, Spotify, Whatsapp and Instagram.
If you are an existing Android user then any apps purchased can be redownloaded to your KODAK EKTRA Smartphone free of charge. You will need to check your settings as we cannot guarantee all settings, permissions and content will be carried across. Apple users may need to purchase apps again.
Yes, the KODAK EKTRA will work internationally, although you may experience reduced 4G service in some countries where they use different radio frequency bands to those used in the USA, eg: in Europe and Asia.
Please note: your carrier may place restrictions or fees for international calls and data usage, so please always check before travelling.
The Kodak Ektra features two cameras; the front-facing 21 megapixel main camera with digital zoom and a secondary 13 megapixel front-facing “selfie” camera. The main camera uses the SONY IMX230 sensor, with F2.0/Auto Focus (PDAF) and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) features to ensure great image quality.
You can also shoot video in 4K on the KODAK EKTRA Smartphone.
As with any phone, battery life on the KODAK EKTRA is dependent on usage. Processor-intensive applications, such as video editing and gaming, consume more battery life than more basic uses such as email and SMS messaging. However, as a guideline, the 3000mAh battery on the KODAK EKTRA Smartphone should provide the following performance:
Talk time: 9.5 hours
Standby time: 580 hours
Talk time: 4.7 hours
Standby time: 600 hours
Talk time: n/a – phone switches to 3G for voice calls
Standby time: 535 hours

CDMA and GSM are different generations of cellular technologies. One of the key differences is that GSM phones use SIM cards, whereas those on CDMA do not. SIM cards contain unique identification data which enables the user the freedom to easily swap their SIM card into any unlocked GSM phone at any time, or even keep their phone and change to another GSM carrier. CDMA technology means the user is locked to one specific carrier.
In the US, the major GSM carriers are AT&T and T-Mobile, whereas Sprint, Verizon and U.S. Cellular use CDMA. The KODAK EKTRA Smartphone is GSM only.
The Kodak Ektra uses a USB Type-C (or USB-C) charger. This has a different shape to many older Android devices so may not be compatible with chargers you already have in the house. But don’t worry, there’s one included in the box.
