Summary: The Kyocera Hydro C5170 is a smartphone that can be used while you take a shower and want to check up on stuff. It comes with a good price, but it does not deliver such a brilliant performance, compared with other reviewed smartphones.
Conclusion: There are plenty of high-end heavyweight phones on the market today. There is also a big market for phones with lesser specs and much lower price tags that provide a good bang-for-the-buck value. The Kyocera Hydro Vibe is in this bang-for-the-buck category. There are two key features that make the Hydro Vibe stand out from other affordable smartphones: the fact that this phone is waterproof and also its Smart Sonic Receiver technology.
Pros: Waterproof, Smart Sonic Receiver technology works great, Affordable, Nimble enough despite its specs
Cons: Storage space is lean, Camera is mediocre, More powerful options out there
