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.

  • 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.

Great phone

  • Summary: Love this phone. Haven't had many issues with it. Easy to operate. Like the apps it came with. The only issue I've had is that occasionally the keyboard locks up and doesn't work. But the awesome fact is I got the phone for 50 less than any store had it for. Thanks Amazon!

**Hard to hear*

Ceil Beagle, Amazon
25 September 2013
  • Summary: 3 days with phone so far and works good. Works good if you don't want to talk on the phone. The earpiece speaker is terrible and tinny sounding. The outside speakerphone works great, but I don't want everyone hearing my conversations all the time. So any of the reviews you read on this is probably true. Not sure how long I will tolerate straining to listen to someone trying to talk to me.

"Fine LTE phone with sturdy build quality."

  • Pros: 10 megabit LTE in my area, great call quality and speakerphone. Not much of a photographer, but pics look OK. Chrome, Google NOW, Waze, all work great! This smartphone is NOT slow!
  • Cons: Screen not as sharp as some, but good enough for the way I use it.

"Great value and quality for it's class."

  • Pros: Water resistance is a huge plus when getting wet. Works fairly efficient for entry level phone and functions are very responsive. Voice dial works perfect. Screen resolution is clear & sharp. Web browser fairly quick.
  • Cons: Not sure if it's every touch screen phone, but this screen for texting is terrible (too sensitive), I still prefer actual buttons for texting. Could use longer battery life. Could use a more powerful processor for higher video playback resolution.

Kyocera Hydro

Cammi317, Amazon

  • Summary: I just got the phone on yesterday, so I am still trying to figure out how everything works. Because I resisted purchasinga Smart Phone for so long, this is my first Android phone. So far, except for the small screen I love it. I did note that the playback was a little fuzzy when my daughter logged on to Netflix last night. It did not freeze or play slowly or anything like that, just a slightly fuzzy picture.

Great for the money

R. T. Mudge, Amazon
24 September 2012
  • Summary: I researched pre-paid phones for about 2 months before I bit the bullet and made my purchase. I knew I wanted an android and I was torn between the Kyocera Rise and Hydro. I went with the Hydro purely because of Boost's shrinking monthly plans. After having the phone for 2 1/2 weeks I feel ready to share my opinion on how excited this phone makes me.
