Rated 3.6 out of 5★ by 16reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by good phone at a cheap price. my husband bought this phone about 3 weeks ago. he as not had any of the above mentioned problems. this phone is made of a thinner cheaper plastic yes, but you can buy a case for it on amazon for only a few dollars. if you are looking for a top of the line smart phone you probably would not be looking at one thats only $100. but i have to say coming from the basic cell phone, this is a great starter smart phone. it is fast for the price (even while watching movies) and has all the bells a whistles you would want from a smart phone with out all the extra junk that make the other guys run in the $300-500 range. so again you get what you pay for, but if you are looking to upgrade your normal cell to a smart phone this is a great value. 11/19/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good phone for a good price While I do agree with the previous review regarding battery life I think it's a good phone for the price. If you want a cheaper android this is definitely a good phone to get. 11/22/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good Phone for Those With a Small Budget I've had this phone for about a month, and it has been working splendidly. I'm very happy to have this phone, the only down side that I may have, is that it doesnt pick up signal as well as my old boost mobile phone. But, all in all, it is a very good investment if you decide to go for a slightly cheaper and smaller phone. Its powered by android, so you know it has standards to like up to. 11/26/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by totally love this phone ! This is my first smart phone /Android that I have ever had . I got it super cheap on Black Friday and really got a great deal . My family bought 3 , we got 2 for me and my daughter and one back up one. After a month of using it my son decide to use our back up one to replace his previous android phone and he totally loves this new phone too. His previous phone, a Galaxy Prevail, went through battery much quicker then this Hydro does, and this phone has way more storage , he says. All 3 of us totally love this phone . Very satisfied customers! 02/13/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Worth it! This is a good phone, and it's definitely a bargain. I saw there were reviews about a short battery life and that's not the case. You just have to know how to use a smart phone. In general the battery is great It can go 8 or more. With the wi-fi on and apps running then the battery drains quickly but that happens with any smartphone. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it does tend to freeze occasionally when I have a ton of things running at once. All I have to do is restart it and it's fine. If you can handle that little mishap than you will definitely love this phone. It has all the different apps that would come with a normal android smart phone and you can download plenty more from google play. It has about a GB of internal storage, but you can use a memory card on it so that's not really a problem. I haven't had a water incident so I don't know about the whole waterproof thing, but from other reviews and things I looked up on youtube the phone should be able to handle water wonderfully. Overall a great phone. I'd have to say it's a steal because it should be worth more than 60 bucks. 08/20/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by adjust screen proximity When I first got the phone I was not getting a dialpad when making a call. I was unable to hang up on a call or even get to the home screen. I called Kyocera directly and they had me adjust the screen proximity level. Go to system settings, display, and screen proximity. Lower the level, and make a call. It worked. My level needed to be one level above from the left. Try this before returning the phone. This phone is great, well worth the price I paid and has much better features than some of the more expensive phones 12/11/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by good phone this phone is good for me i don;t do lot of texting and stuff but i've had phone since it came out .on the water proof its good but make sure the charging tab is closed i didn't and fried my first one but i keep a spare .i would recommend this phonei 12/25/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Junk Do not spend money on this phone. The first one I brought back constantly reset itself, and the battery life is a joke. The replacement I got did the same thing, so it is a problem with the model. Also, the casing is cheap plastic. I eventually went with the Samsung Rush, which works just fine. You have been warned. 11/01/2012
