Kyocera Hydro Edge (Boost Mobile)

 

The Kyocera Hydro Edge is a decent Android smartphone for Boost Mobile customers, but aside from its rugged and waterproof design, it's merely average.

The Hydro Edge is a better deal than most of Boost’s other Android phones in the $100 price range, some of which still ship with the thoroughly obsolete Android 2.3 “Gingerbread” release. Its waterproofing is also a major benefit, especially for the...

Kyocera Hydro Edge review

 

The Hydro Edge is water resistant and only costs $150 on Boost and $20 on Sprint. It's a decent phone for those on a tight budget, but comes with some serious trade-offs.

The Kyocera Hydro Edge is a budget Android smartphone with one really nice high-end feature: water and dust resistance. Unlike the Torque, it’s not meant for the ultimate mountain adventurer. It’s for people who want use their phone in the rain or at...

Waterproof ; Smart Sonic Receiver tissue conduction technology ; Inexpensive cost

Outdated specs ; Low quality display ; Takes grainy photos ; Sluggish performance

Kyocera Hydro Edge review

 

Announced back in July, the Kyocera Hydro Edge is a low-end handset for Boost Mobile. It continues the recent trend towards water resistant smartphones, which the Japanese manufacturer has been pushing lately. The Hydro Edge won't wow anyone ​looking...

Kyocera has focused on low and middle tier phones for years now. The Hydro Edge is a very capable device for someone looking for a cheap phone that will handle use fairly well. It will not blow anyone away with its screen, camera or smoothness, but...

Kyocera Hydro Edge

 

Kyocera has targeted lovers of outdoor adventures with the Hydro Edge — the phone’s housing is durable and waterproof. Aside from this, the Hydro Edge comes off as a lackluster phone. Its low-resolution screen, below-average battery life,...
