The Hydro Wave carries on the tradition of great, hard-wearing devices from Kyocera, a leader in the production of phones that can withstand the harsh realities of everyday life and more. The Kyocera Hydro Wave is covered by our 14 Day Return Policy.
Smartphone manufacturers are getting ever wiser to the fact that most of us, even if not habitually clumsy, do occasionally expose our phones to mishaps of all kinds. More and more devices now have built in water-resistance, for example, and the Kyocera Hydro Wave is one of them. Therefore, it is waterproof to a depth of approximately 3 feet for up to 30 minutes. The Hydro Wave offers peace of mind for those times when we see it going to the bottom of the pool or bath.
But, as well as offering a high level of water resistance, the Kyocera goes further. They built into it military grade shock resistance. The MIL810 standard actually comprises a lot of elements. That is as it is designed for military equipment including everything from bullets to tanks. What Kyocera have done is taken the shock resistance parts of the standard and made sure the Hydro Wave complies with them. It doesn’t make the phone indestructible. But it does make a 6 feet drop onto a hard surface eminently more survivable.
As well as the toughness, the Hydro Wave brings a lot of power and functionality to the table as well.
The 5” display is superbly clear and bright, with great color rendition. It makes all your movies, games and apps look as good as their makers intended them to be.
The 5MP rear camera has smile detection, autofocus and LED Flash, and is capable of capturing 720p HD video. The front 2MP camera is also ideal for all those selfies you’ll be taking.
The CPU keeping all of this chugging along comfortably is a 1.2ghz quad core processor. It includes 1GM of RAM memory and there is 8GB of storage built in. Of course, it is expandable up to 32GB via the Micro SD card slot Kyocera have thoughtfully included.
The 2300 mAh battery gives 18hrs of talk time and up to 25 days of standby, so seizing the day – all of it – has never been easier.
Bluetooth 4.1, wi-fi 802.11 b/g/n, Assisted GPS for the most accurate location and positioning available, wi-fi calling and mobile hotspot make up a formidable range of connection options, together with maximum data transfer speeds over 4G.
If you do happen to have your “ooops” moments with your phone, and would like to be able to pick it up again without your eyes closed and being afraid to open them, the Kyocera Hydro Wave may be just what you’re looking for. But it isn’t a case of substance over style, the Hydro Wave looks great and brings all the features you need from a modern smartphone.
Brain, brawns, and beauty in one.
