Not the best phone: camera and memory are not adequate.
Otherwise, it the best out of the cheap Androids.
No hang ups, no major problems.

If I got it for free I would be disappointed. I paid $20 for it and feel cheated. Slow from the start. Poor quality camera. I had a late 2010 Samsung before. It blows this 2013 model of Kyocera away. It is a mystery how it performs so poorly. Most constant hang up is phone display goes blank after a few seconds. Have to keep hitting side buttons to light up display again. Real pain when navigating businesses automated phone systems. You can adjust in battery saving mode how long screen stays lit on regular smart phone functions/apps. But has no bearing on how long display stays lit on regular phone function. It is like someone designed it to annoy people. Volume of ring tones is ok but could be better. But oddly enough speaker phone volume is lacking. Any little bit of ambient background noise will overwhelm speaker phone volume. And then must turn speaker phone off and just hold it to your ear. Phone is water proof but I would never put it to the test. Plastic case and screen feel and look very cheap but is durable and does not scratch or Mar. I would rate touch sensitivity of screen 4 out of 10. Touch sensitivity is usable and not too annoying but there are much better.

The thing is that the updtaes from google play and the system updates are too large of files that the phones memory gets more full faster and that causes for the phone to run slower and freeze up once you've downloaded applications the only best thing to do is update phones if your trying to use it for applications, for example its lik a car if u put more weight than the usual and the limit it will start heating up and causing it to rturn off, its the same thing with the phones memory the updates are becoming larger and the phones capacity cant support it.

Ok, i set a password, to get past the problem, and guess what, the damn thing freezes up. Now it will not even power up? What a piece of crap.

I've had this phone for about 6 months. The number of times it has locked up has left me extremely disappointed with Kyocera. It really should have fixed this problem by now. No more Kyocera phones for me.

I think the carousel Hydro is a pain in the butt phone I think the carousel Hydro is a pain in the butt phone. It's so awful I had to say that twice. it always turns off or doesn't respond it's the worst phone I've ever used and it's the worst phone I've ever owend the only good thing is its water resistant but it dosent even stay on long enough to try to have water splash on it don't buy this phone unless you want a headache all day

A delightful handheld to use, but the Wifi connectivity leaves a lot to be desired. Connections to older routers do not produce internet connectivity. Even new routers seem to have problems with compatibility........please fix this; as I can find nothing else to complain about.
