Kyocera Hydro Plus Review

Score: 5.46

Kyocera Hydro Plus is a mid-to-low level Android cellphone launched in January 2014, provisioned with a 3.5" multi-touch display, a great performance CPU speeding at 1 gigahertz and a 3.2 megapixels back side camera.

This phone ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 MSM8655 system chip, packing a great performance 1000 MHz CPU and 512 MB of RAM. Handling graphic rendering, it also uses a 245 megahertz Adreno 205 GPU. This phone has a decent 2 GB internal memory, which is adequate for the average user considering the Kyocera Hydro Plus also has an SD extension slot .

This phone is available just in color black. Kyocera didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 4.16 oz phone.

This cellphone has only a 3.2 mega-pixels back facing camera. In addition, the camera includes flash.

Kyocera packed the Kyocera Hydro Plus with a interesting 3.5-inches display, and a 480 x 320 resolution, providing this cellphone with an average image quality. This display uses LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

The Kyocera Hydro Plus features a medium sized 1500 mAh Li-Ion removable battery that can keep this phone running for several hours. Kyocera reports a 170 hs stand by time and a 8.5 hs talk time for this cellphone.

This cellphone provides wifi connectivity (which can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot). This cellphone doesn't have a SIM card, because it is not a GSM cellphone.

This cellphone also comes with a couple of nice features like Bluetooth (2.1, EDR) and GPS Localization, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This device is being sold for 140 dollars, which is very expensive for comparing with similar devices.
