Summary: Within a few days the phone started restarting itself randomly -- even while on calls. Other than that the phone works pretty well. There is nothing impressive about it, however, and the best you can really hope for is mediocre performance.
Summary: It's metro pcs. Other then that it says no Sim card is in it so I have to reset it a lot. The picture quality for the face side is bad because it's not clear and also it's always a very dark picture but the other side works just fine, unless you want a perfectly clear picture.
Summary: I wanted a water proof phone but, didnt find the xperia Z3 worth the 600.00 installment plan on Tmobile. The Z3 front camera was horrible and, it didnt feel comfortable in my hand. I dont like glass rear or backs on phones so, i decided to try the hydrolife.
Great phone with great features for the price, but a couple major issues......

Summary: Got this on Cyber Monday for $50, to replace my Samsung Victory (Ran out of internal memory for Apps). Great price for all the newest features. Worked very well, liked the screen format and it was working adequately fast on 4G. Had no problems hearing calls.
Summary: It was a pain in the rear to activate and get the latest 150 system files updated. The entire process took over an hour and a half!! Camera- Rear is average at best. Poor quality with low light. Extremely crappy with the front camera. Display quality- not too bad. Viewing angle is not good.
The phone is hard to hear on and had to buy a new phone case of it

Summary: The Kyocera Hydro Icon is a good waterproof phone for Boost Mobile customers with MUCH more internal memory for storing apps and games than other Boost phones in its price range. It has a nice 4.5 inch screen and music sounds great with good headphones.

Summary: Before this phone I had to Samsung Galaxy Rush, it was garbage. One week after getting the Hydro Icon I dropped it from maybe 3 ft and parts of the screen wouldnt register finger movement anymore. So I got another one, kept the old ones battery to swap when the new one drains.
