Kyocera Hydro Elite (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Kyocera Hydro Elite is a solid midrange Android smartphone for Verizon that combines a sharp display and a waterproof build, but falters when it comes to call quality.

Sharp display. Waterproof. Comfortable for one-handed use

Middling call quality. Underwhelming performance

In a world where the 4.7-inch Moto X is considered small, the Kyocera Hydro Elite ($49.99 with 2-year contract) is downright petite. It looks and feels like this year's Droid Mini with its 4.3-inch display, but it performs more like last year's Razr M....

Kyocera Hydro Elite (Verizon) review: Kyocera's best waterproof Hydro to date

 

With every new waterproof Hydro device, Kyocera adds incremental, but necessary improvements. But with the $49.99 on-contract Hydro Elite from Verizon, I'm glad to see Kyocera made even bigger strikes.

The inexpensive Kyocera Hydro Elite is a compact, waterproof handset with wireless charging, a decent camera, and expandable memory.

Sluggish internal speeds and mediocre call quality bog down the device's performance.

Kyocera's Elite will quench Verizon users' thirst for a stylish and reasonably priced water-resistant phone -- just don't expect it to be a powerful speed demon.

Kyocera Hydro Elite Review

 

Over the years, we've seen various rugged and water resistant phones come out of Verizon Wireless. Recently we reviewed the Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE and were quite impressed with its design, but now there's a new player on the field, the Kyocera...

Splash and waterproof ; Compact and lightweight ; Close to stock Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean experience

Poor camera and video recording quality ; Calls sound muffled and distant

When it comes right down to it, the Kyocera Hydro Elite is your basic mid-range Android smartphone that happens to be splash and waterproof – up to a limit. It’s designed for people that want this added layer of protection, but without stepping up the...

Review: Kyocera Hydro Elite for Verizon Wireless

 

Kyocera's Hydro Elite is the first device it's sold with Verizon in years. It's a water-resistant Android smartphone that's wrapped in a small, capable package. Here are our thoughts.

Kyocera Hydro Elite Review

 

The Kyocera Hydro Elite is one of the best water-resistant Android phones you can get from any US carrier. Put the water resistance aside, however, and you're left with a phone that would have been decent enough a year or two ago but is severely...

It sports a decent screen for its price point, and is one of the only water-resistant Android phones available from a U.S. carrier.

Aside from its rugged construction, the phone doesn't offer much else to entice buyers.

The Kyocera Hydro Elite is a great choice if you want a budget Android phone that doesn't mind getting wet. If you're looking for capability, however, look elsewhere.

"this phone is a piece of junk"

 

I am an avid snowboarder in the winter time and a white water rafting guide in the summer time. My life style is extremely dangerous and life threatening. This device was advertised as if it was a tough muddin' phone that can take whatever life might...
