Summary: I use this phone for things like Swagbucks and PerkTV. It ran videos for a week strait while I was out of town. As a waterproof, cheap phone, this has many uses. I have used to to take pictures while tubing, swimming, and being around water in general. As far as using it as a regular phone, i have not activated it or used it for calls or texts. This phone should stand up to whatever you need it to.
Summary: I have Boost mobile and needed a new phone but didn't want to pay too much. So I found this phone. The first month it was just fine but then while in the middle of texting I would get a message that says "messenger has stopped" and I would have to go back into my text and start over. The same thing when I try to look up a website. It doesn't do that all the time but it does happen.
Summary: Honestly the Hydro is junk. Occasionally it will turn on the screen by itself, navigate to other apps (such as the phone) and open them up. Occasionally the screen will register my presses in the wrong place. Screen quality is poor, and processor speed is incredibly slow. I'm using them to just play commercials from an app, and it is 10x slower at loading the videos than my Galaxy Nexus. Would I buy this phone if I needed a cheap phone just to make calls and text on?
