Sprint's Kyocera Hydro Vibe is made for hydrophiles
It's Lynn La from CNet.
And today we're gonna check out the Kyocera Hydro Vibe for Sprint.
This device is fully water-resistant and satisfies IPX-5 and IPX-7 waterproofing standards.
That means the handset can survive in up to a meter of water for about 30 minutes.
So you can rest easy the next time you're caught in the rain or your friend throws you in the pool with your phone in your pocket.
The phone features a 4.5 inch impact resistant display, with a 960 by 540 picture resolution.
It runs Android 4.3 and includes a few software features, like a text enlarger called MagniFont, which increases the size of your interface's text.
There's also an easy mode that simplifies and minimizes the user interface.
Powering the LTE handset is a quad core 1.2 gigahertz snapdragon processor, and a 2 ampere hour battery that has a reported talk time of up to 14 hours.
On the back, there's an 8 megapixel camera, capable of recording 1080p HD video and on the front is a 2 megapixel shooter.
Additional features include 1.5 gig of ram, 8 gigs of internal storage, plus up to 32 gigs of expandable storage, via a micro SD card slot.
And wireless charging capabilities.
If you're interested, the device is currently available for 29.99, with a 2 year carrier agreement.
Again, I'm Lynn, and you've been checking out Sprint's Hydrovibe.
