A waterproof camera with cloud backup (Phone? What phone?)

Dan tdaxp "tdaxp", Amazon
22 September 2014
  • Summary: I've never used this device as phone. For me, it's waterproof camera with cloud backup (thru OneDrive or Google Photos) over wifi. I love being able to take it kayaking or use it to capture photos from the water. I've fully submerged it with no ill effects. The only problem? It will try to find a network even without a SIM card in it when I start it, making me hit the camera button. I don't consider this a phone, so it'd be nice if it stopped trying to be one.

  • Summary: I like mine. Have no real complaints.  The price was right. I've dropped it a few times, it's gotten wet, I abuse things... no problems.
  • Pros: Good phone for the money - No problems after getting it wet or dropping it
  • Cons: No real complaints - it's not a top performer but price is right and it'stougher than most

  • Summary: It's a smaller phone than I'm used to but at least you can drop it in the water and it won't be broke . It's pretty fast for a cheaper phone it's not bad at all .

Value-priced, durable, small-screen smart phone, just "fast enough"

Park_Bio, CNET
1 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought a Kyocera Hydro in March 2013 for $79. As a field biologist in South Florida, I am often soaked by rain, sweat, or both. My first Hydro handled all of this well for three months, but died after I lost it in tall grass for several days during summer rains.
  • Pros: affordable water resistance, decent bounce-tolerance & durability.
  • Cons: Water-resistant, not water-proof

water proof as advertised.

  • Summary: First thing i did was throw that sucker in my sink, if it failed the test i would've returned it, but i still got it. Does its job as a phone with phone calls and texts, multitasking and browser speeds show the phones lesser side on speed, but for the $35 it was definitely worth it. U get what u pay for no?

I was never gonna activate the Boost service....

  • Summary: I got this phone purely for its Wi-Fi capabilities. It works very well in that capacity. I live in a very humid climate. My last android phone (HTC-MyTouch) bit the dust because of the humidity here, and salt air. I hoping to get some mileage out of this phone. The only app I was not able to download, was the NBC App. It has something to do with the version of software on this phone.

Nice up grade from the Hydro Android!!

Chuck V. "Charles M. Voigt", Amazon

  • Summary: My 2nd smart phone, yes. It is inexpensive, large enough screen, water proof and I've proven (phone was ran over by a pass. car) that it is nearly unbreakable. I work outside so speaker volume MUST be good, it is. It has been rained on already, no problem. When tuned in with my home wi-fi PC connection, it updated all in a single evening without a hitch. I found thew fastest way to use the Internet is with Google and Chrome updated.
