From the Manufacturer


Kyocera Hydro Vibe, Charcoal Gray

  • *Certified waterproof for IPX5, and IPX7. Immersible for up to 30 minutes in up to 3.28 feet (1 meter). Phone should be dried as quickly as possible when wet. To ensure that your phone is waterproof, make sure the battery door is properly sealed.

Kyocera Hydro Vibe, Charcoal Gray

Live more. Fear less.

Never fear a water spill or conversation in a loud room again.

Splash ready. ..

Hydro VIBE is waterproof*. So go ahead and snap that family photo by the pool, give the dog a bath and get caught in the rain with confidence.

  • Talk Time up to 14 hours (Times will vary based on user settings, feature use and network configuration)

Live in the moment.

Life doesn't stop. Your camera shouldn't either. Capture your world as it happens. Whether it's at a pool party or the beach, the powerful 8MP camera isn't afraid to get its feet wet. And the 2MP front-facing camera and video camcorder equipped with Panorama HDR, capturing life is as simple as point, shoot and post.

Accidents Happen.

We all take falls, tumbles and stumbles. Fortunately, the 4.5 inch impact-resistant touchscreen keeps you better protected against the unexpected. Plus its 4.5 inch qHD so watching videos, playing games and surfing the web is a breeze.

Cut the cord.

Set Hydro VIBE down and walk away. The PMA-enabled (Power Matters Alliance) wireless charging feature makes for easy and convenient charging. Simply set your phone on a charge pad* and start charging. No cords necessary.

Loud parties, busy street corners and sporting events are now phone-friendly.

Smart Sonic Receiver technology is another way of saying you'll be able to hear where you never could before. It converts the entire touchscreen to a speaker – knocking out background noise and enabling call clarity.

No, does not have the features of the flagship
phones but also does not have a $700 price tag; pound
for pound this is a great phone for what I expect of it: data &
wifi calling; good battery life as well; like the eco mode as well
as the enhanced audio/sound reproduction; camera is just so-so;
also is NOT running latest release of Android and I'm not sure if
it ever will; did I mention it is waterproof to 3 ft of water

Just a quick fyi for you guys having camera difficulties, you can set the picture mode to quick shot and it takes away that half second lag after the picture is snapped. Also with taking the video, you can assign the camera button on the side of the phone to have a dedicated "record now" button. Lastly, I stumbled across a solution for the audio lag with the video. Just set the format to 3gpp instead of mpeg-4 and it works great. hope this helps!

I love this phone, i bought one on Black Friday and opened it in store. Before I left, I bought 3 more. It's better than any waterproof phone I've ever seen. It doesn't have flaps that need shut, it's always waterproof (unless you take the battery cover off, obviously). It's reasonably powerful. The internal memory is limited, like all Android phones. When you put in an external SD card, it makes it the primary SD card, not the smaller internal SD card like every other android that I've owned (and I've owned quite a few - a few dozen). I also discovered that it has PowerMat charging built in (for only $30, I couldn't believe it!

It doesn't have the battery life of the LG Optimus F3, but it is, by far, my favorite phone.

Note: mine are the Virgin Mobile branded ones, but they're identical other than the carrier apps. Virgin Mobile offers unlimited talk, text, and web for $35/month (plus your state's sales tax & $1 E911, but no other taxes or surcharges)

bought for my son who is very active out doors lets see how it hold up to him, i will follow up later. only complaint the both cameras are dark and take poor pics. but what can you expect for a low end phone. everything else about the phone feels solid, screen looks good, and it is fast and smooth operating.

Update 7/23 2 weeks of use: Phone going back.... the external speaker has little to no sound.... the smart sonic receiver failed so he cant hear any of the callers..... The built in text messaging app keeps failing\shutting down so the phone has to be restarted to get texting restored.....

This is a $150 phone (if paid full) and has many new features including the sonic sound reproduction, waterproof up to 3ft, impact resistant (not impact-proof), quad-core processor, etc. It is the best basic smartphone out there. If you want a computer, buy a laptop or a desktop. Phones are meant to be used to talk!!!

So around last year I was getting tired of my Galaxy S3's poor battery life (which hasn't changed in the 3 years I've had it, really) and wanted to get something along with Sprint's new Spark LTE...Which is really nothing more than standard LTE for all the other carriers from a layman's perspective (as in, I don't know if it's supposedly better or not). I find this phone was the stray that broke the camel's back in the sense every time I upgraded my Sprint phone I was stuck with a very poor selection of devices or phones that each had a flaw that rendered it unbuyable for me. I had it for about 4 months until I switched carriers seeing that Sprint refused to service the device without buying insurance which is about equal to the monthly payments (note: Sprint discontinued contracts from April to I think July of 2014).

Preface: Before I bought this phone I had purchased a used Torque off eBay to use in testing out the brand before putting too much money into a new phone. I was mostly disappointed in how quality is vastly different between the two devices.

Pros:
+1.5GB of RAM; more than enough for basic needs and no issues using Chrome.
+Snappy quad core
+Removable battery.
+Fairly decent bluetooth/wifi tethering battery life. It's been a while but I recall getting 3-5% per hour of drain. Don't hold me to this as I have not been able to test it recently.
+While it claims it is water resistant, it does not require plugs for either headphones or USB port.

Cons:
-The price of the phone does not match the quality of the hardware. If Sprint sold the phone at a decent price (in comparison to say a Motorola or Samsung of a similar value) this point is moot.

Got mine for $40 on black Friday. The camera settings constantly reset to default settings - can't stand the picture review option continually being turned back on. Its great for listening to podcasts in the shower (waterproof). Also nice not having to be concerned about fluids, wet hands and such. Best phone I've had but I'd never pay over $200 for a phone. I text and use apps/net. Great for that.
