The phone is awesome in longevity and for it to do whatever you can want from any android. Only drawback is its npt lighning fast. I can stream movies pn Netflix no problem so its fast enough for me........ your just a hater that probly needs a dumbphone cause a smartphone seems to be too much for you to handle.

Some people are saying that this phone is horrible, I love it. I've had it for about a year now and has completely withstood my job, being the last place you'd want to bring a phone - a waterpark. Through every drop in water, even down to 6ft, it's never stopped working. The speed isn't that great, it's still a budget phone for the most part, but I love it overall. It just depends on your expectations, whether it's going to be great or terrible.

> In reply to rick @ 2014-05-12 18:36 from jBuv - click to readI totally agree with you, this phone is my worse nightmare. I bought the phone weeks ago, the audio is terrible, the phone shot down, the keyboard is a pain, and recently showed that the SD card was removed (not idea why) and when I check the my pics and videos were deleted completely...grrrr OMG!!. When I to go the store they say, they don't know why the phone did that, when you call the insurance they send you to the manufacturer, when you call the manufacturer, they tell you have to wait until they work on some things, if not, you need to send the phone, WAIT 10 days and they will send you a refurbish phone... PLEASE PLEASE DONT BUY Kyocera phone they are PIECE OF ..... CRAp

this phone does give me a lot of problems then I gotta charge it up like 3 or 4 times a day while using it which is completely ridiculous, but one thing I can say is this thing really is waterproof and is almost bulletproof I killed a bee with mine today

I thought it was OK til it starting shutting off during calls.The on/off switch turns off by itself.Time to switch provider.

I thought maybe I just got a bum phone. Reading these posts, I see a lot of people have issues same as mine. I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE this ridiculously poor phone. The Hydro has GOT TO BE BY FAR THE WORST PHONE EVER MADE. I paid only 9.99 for it at Target and it isnt worth it. It is hideouslyslow, has a million glitches, battery life SUCKS, touchscreen accuracy blows...there is NOTHING good I csn say about this piece of gsrbage. These arent typos, the keyboarf suvkd snd sometimes correcting just maked it worse. I HATE this piece of ctap.

I have had this phone for a week I hate it already. Had the problem with inability to end a call but worst of it is bad signal for data and call all static. Battery takes forever to charge and dies quickly even when I don't use it

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.
