Kyocera Hydro Vibe (Virgin Mobile)

 

The Kyocera Hydro Vibe for Virgin Mobile is an affordable waterproof smartphone, but its performance is only average.

Waterproof. Affordable. Solid media support.

Poor call quality. Unimpressive display. Mediocre camera.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The Vibe has 8GB of storage, but only half of that is available to the user. There's also a free microSD card slot under the back cover, buried under the battery, which supports cards up to 32GB—it couldn't read our...

Kyocera Hydro Vibe review: A rugged mid-range phone with a few glaring flaws

 

It's small, handy, and water resistant, but it's missing some UI elements and added features that would have made it a worthy mid-range device.

The Kyocera Hydro Vibe wouldn’t be my first choice for a mid-range handset. I’d much rather go for the phablet-sized

Consumer review (cnet.com)

"The absolute WORST cellphone I have ever purchased."

 

I have had nothing but problems with this awful phone. Callers cannot even hear me on the other end mainly because this phone DOES NOT have an exterior mic. It uses vibrations through the glass to transfer sound. HORRIBLE. The phone constantly...

Wow! This phone is perfect. Super fast, smooth, and perfect size. I have found no bugs. Slim enough for a hard case without being too big. Waterproof is an added bonus. Screen is so vibrant and sharp. Get a perfect phone without paying a crazy price.
