That last bit became a little more irksome with time and additional apps added to the phone: a few buggy apps, which would be merely annoying on a phone with a faster processor, could hobble the Hydro unnecessarily; a few apps stopped the poor thing in its tracks. These apps, thankfully, fall into the cool-but-hardly-essential category for me, and a quick uninstall brought things back to normal. And, up until a month or two ago, the Hydro's chief calling-card - bonafide waterproof-ness - had no known competition.
That, of course, changed, first by Sony, then more recently by Samsung with their "ruggedized" version of their Galaxy S4. Interesting, I thought, but besides the cost of owning either phone being too high for my budget and sensibilities, neither phone was available for my carrier of choice (Boost, of course). Kyocera does offer the Torque, but I felt that number was too big, too over-the-top in the styling department, and was only available, via contract, on Sprint. I decided I'd just have to wait until Kyocera decided to do a refresh of the Hydro.Read more ›
Kyocera has done a wonderful job with the upgrade. The larger screen and impressive camera claiming only to be 5mp actually seems more like an 8mp. The already installed Panoramic camera! Not to mention texting could not get any easier! Yes it has the voice response but even better, when I text it can tell what phrases I'm going to use. Such as if I said, "I hope you like it" or something like that, I put in "I", then "h" and they automatically show the word "hope" as one of the choices but immediately after choosing the pretexted word 'hope' it shows you the word 'you' and other words that you might say after 'hope'. Almost guessing your next word. I just love it.
Originally, when I had the Blackberry years ago, it was hard for me to switch original from a physical qwerty to touch screen. My first couple of touch screens aggravated me with how sloppy they were and how easy it was to press the wrong letter. With the bigger, easier to use screen on this Hydro Edge and all the additional features that I haven't even begun to mention, you will not be disappointed with this phone! I've never been so impressed. Not to mention it's only around $100. You'd be crazy to spend $200 on a phone with less. I've spent $300 on a phone previously and it didn't have nearly as many impressive functions as this Hydro Edge. I can't believe how sweet this phone is!
did a fair amount of research and found boost mobile to be really good based off other's reviews. decided to get the kyrocera hydro edge, primarily due to price ($100) and the fact it ran Android 4.1. Didn't want to pay a bundle for a top of the line phone, as i have a IPad 4 that I use for most other on the go things.
Quite pleased so far, phone is a good size, easy to use and is pretty clear on majority of calls placed so far. also like the fact it is waterproof and rugged. based on previous experiences, i wanted either a LG or Kyrocera branded phone preferably, since they tend to hold up well over time and aren't fragile like some other phones.
The touch screen is decently sized and nice and responsive, making it easy to type and text on the virtual keyboard. And it is nice the phone memory can be upgraded with a micro sd card up to 32 gigs extra. The camera is also quite nice at 5MP and has a flash (which most other phones in this cost range do not have). Also like how you can connect to a WiFi spot with the phone, instead of relying on using the data plan, which supposedly caps at 2.5 gigs/month and thus throttles the download speed down quite. bit until the next billing cycle. Especially if you plan to stream Netflix or any type of video/music apps frequently.
now there are a couple of minor cons. it isn't the fastest phone ever (as far as opening/running apps) in comparison with some of the more expensive models (Galaxy, HTC One, LG Venice/F7 models) due the amount of onboard RAM. I don't know how well it would perform on high performance games or apps (as mentioned above, i use a tablet for those).Read more ›
