The Kyocera Hydro XTRM (GSM) has been rated 2.5 out of 5 stars by users.
I bought this phone about 2 months ago and let me you don't buy it it starts kind of slow but I'm hear to tell you it gets worse randomly slowing down for sometimes days at a time like today and the last three days for me it took me five minutes to load this page and if you want to watch a video then ask yourself the question are you feeling lucky because though the speed can be good at times most of the time it's like 2g speed
I download different games, and most of them glitch out completely. I don't have any other way to describe it.
I downloaded Snapchat and I would take pictures that would be so glitched out that I couldn't tell what the picture was, and the same photo editing apps as well.
It gets the job done, yes, but poorly. The internet is also very slow, very often.
Would not recommend unless to someone who is only looking to use it as maybe a business phone.
I've had this phone for about a yr n a half. N I have to say it may not be the most expensive phone but it is very durable. I'm really hard on my phones. N this one has been thrown thru walls slammed on the concrete n thrown in the pool many times. N still no scratches or cracked screens LCD still works fine. I love this phone. Now that's the positive parts of it. Negative is it doesn't have a very large memory to hold games or a lot of photos n at times does get slow. So I use it mostly on WiFi networks. N it doesn't work in all places. My husband has the iPhone 6x and his phone never loses service but its not as durable as mine. So if you drop your phone a lot or have people who likes to ruin your things or at least try to this phone is for you. Its been a really money saver for me. I really love this phone. And has saved me a bunch of money. Battery does tend to die faster after awhile. So that's another down fall. Picture qaulity could be better as well. And volume works great with the right headphones. But for output of the sound isn't that great.
I like this phone. The prime reason is because it is shockproof, waterproof and one can have it in his or her back pants pocket without cracking the screen (my wife has done this with phones in front and back pockets in the past more than twice) if they should sit down. My wife saw my phone and had me buy her one too. One day while sitting in the tub and serfing Facebook, she dropped her phone in the water and screened. Without missing a beat, I toweled it dry with no negative effects to the device whatsoever. Moving large files over Bluetooth could be faster. Sometimes the phone sounds like "the matrix" if you know what I mean, on occasion. Using phone's earpiece could be clearer. I usually use the hands free feature while driving or speaker phone with no problems. I only had 4 apps that didn't work with this phone, period. Anything I would do on a desktop or laptop (like word processing, or spreadsheets) I can usually do on this phone with no issues at all. Hey, its no $400.00 or $500.00 phone, but it gets the job done. I paid $99.00 each for my hydros and consider it money well spent.
So far the Hydro is working for me. I haven't dropped it (yet) and it hasn't been in water. All of the advertised features other than those are working great. The only problem I have is the camera. The clarity isn't what I thought it should be. Still in all it's a decent phone. I would probably go with something else were this phone not so new and I'd known more about it before purchasing. Still I have no regrets. For what I paid for it, I got a great deal. It was hard to get initially. Seems like this phone is hard to find. It's helpful if you clear out the apps menu as it helps extend the battery life. I like this phone, it's pretty good.
At full volume on a call- is scratchy, turn down a couple and ok. I put 32G SD card and set to save to SD card. download app still loads on phone with no way to transfer to SD. with only 1 G storage on phone, not enough to be useful. bought it at $29. Orig $179. Not worth 29 if you use very many aps. Some aps you can transfer, but not many of the ones I use.
Bought this phone as a temporary/backup after selling my LG G2. (Waiting for the G3) And its not that bad. It does have a problems due to low internal (1GB) memory. Especially when FB app tries to update. It fails to update citing no storage available when 250 Mbs are available. So I end up clearing cached memory to update the FB app.
I'm ready for the G3, but this phone is great if you want something simple (4G) and are in the market for a phone that can handle any waterborne issue (Up to 30 minutes) and take a tumble on the concrete, then make a call without missing a beat.
I paid $150.00 for it, so it's a perfect fit for teens more so than your above average android user. I'll still use this phone when I'm riding my mountain bike or hitting the pool. And keep my G3 in the truck.
I had an LG Motion but I have a 3 yr old that dropped it in the toilet. It was saved with rice but I thought the Hydro Extreme would be a good investment.
It might turn out to be used as a back up mini tablet but as a phone I'm not happy.
The smart sound technology isn't so smart. I'm constantly hearing people tell me they can't hear me. I can't always understand them either.
The claim of 4gb memory isn't exactly totally revealing. Only about 1 of those are available to you. It's constantly telling me low storage and I have to delete things. An issue I NEVER had with my Motion.
The apps I have on my SD card aren't showing icons /shortcuts in my apps and I still haven't figured out how to fix that.
The camera is beyond slow too. Between the time you snap and the time it actually takes the picture the shot is gone. With kids and pets allot gets missed.
I wish there was a water proof shock proof Motion and I'd be totally happy with my phone.
