Kyocera Hydro Plus is a waterproof budget phone
It's Lynn La from CNET.
And today, I have with me the Kyocera Hydro Plus from Cricket Wireless.
This entry-level 3G smartphone is a waterproof device, so you can dunk this handset in up to a meter of water for 30 minutes or use it in the rain for a bit without causing any permanent damage.
It's powered by a one gigaHert Snapdragon processor, and a 1.5 Ampere/hour battery, which should yield you a reported talk time of about 8.5 hours.
On the back, you'll get a basic 3.2 megapixel camera that can record video and has a flash.
But keep in mind, there is no front-facing camera.
As a Cricket Wireless phone, users will get a subscription to the carrier's Muve Music service, which lets you play and download offline thousands of albums and songs.
Now, the device does ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
So, the OS is rather dated.
Other features include expandable memory up to 32 gigs, and 2 gigs of ROM.
If you're interested, the handset is available for $139.99 without
Again, I'm Lynn, and you've been checking out Cricket's Hydro Plus.
