Kyocera Hydro Elite (Verizon) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
11 October 2013
  • Summary: The water-resistant Kyocera Hydro Elite offers a semi-rugged experience for free on a two-year contract with Verizon. You also get 4G LTE connectivity, a pretty good 8-megapixel camera and a sharp but somewhat small (for Android) 4.3-inch screen. The Elite also preserves some of the features we loved about the Edge, such as its Smart Sonic Audio technology. Unfortunately, this water-resistant device is sunk by poor battery life.

Kyocera Hydro Edge review

Digitaltrends
15 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The Kyocera Hydro Edge is a budget Android smartphone with one really nice high-end feature: water and dust resistance. Unlike the Torque, it’s not meant for the ultimate mountain adventurer. It’s for people who want use their phone in the rain or at the beach. Accidents happen – at least with this device a drop in the toilet won’t mean having to replace it or worrying that washing it off will do more damage.
  • Pros: Slim, compact design, Water and dust resistant, Useful added apps and features, Good call quality, Inexpensive
  • Cons: Mediocre display, Poor camera, No front camera, Only 1GB of available internal storage, Slow 3G network

Kyocera Hydro Edge (Sprint) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
14 August 2013
  • Summary: The water-resistant and dustproof Kyocera Hydro Edge offers semirugged capabilities for just $19.99 -- a value that is hard to match when it comes to waterproof devices. We also like the Smart Sonic audio technology. However, the Edge lacks a front-facing camera, and the battery life is fairly short. You'll also need to live without 4G LTE speeds, as this phone is 3G-only.
