1:20 /

U.S. Cellular's Hydro XTRM is waterproof, dustproof, and shock resistant. It also has a 4-inch display, Android 4.1, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La here and today, we're gonna take a look at the extra tough Kyocera Hydro XTRM from U.S. Cellular. The XTRM is a shock resistant, dust proof handset that that can also survive being under water for up to a meter for 30 minutes. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has a 4-inch display with an 800 by 480 pixel resolution. Powering its insides is 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and a two ampere hour battery, which has a reported talk time of up to 12.4 hours. This 4G LTE device also supports a 5-megapixel camera in the back and a 1.3-megapixel camera in the front. You will also notice that the phone doesn't have an in-ear speaker that's because it features Smart Sonic receiver technology, which uses a ceramic transducer inside the phone to transmit audio through the hard tissue inside your ear. This in effect boosts audio quality and clarity. In addition, you'll get 4 gigs of on-board memory and a micro SD card slot that's expandable up to 32-gig. If you're interested, the smart phone is available for $29.99 after a user sign a 2-year carrier agreement. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out U.S. Cellular's Hydro XTRM.
