I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Sprint. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating. Enjoy learning about the new Kyocera hydro Vibe waterproof phone!
If you will remember, I am a Sprint Ambassador for 2014! That means I get to test out various Sprint phones and see the best features and help you learn all about the newest tech gadgets on the market! In May we showcased the HTC one and how it was the best phone for music lovers due to it’s amazing sound quality. This month; I’m excited to share with you one of my favorite android phones, the Kyocera Hydro Vibe Waterproof 4G LTE smartphone!
Why Kyocera is great for families
So why is the Kyocera a favorite? Well up until I got the phone I had never heard of Kyocera before. Seriously have I been living under a rock? But it is one of my favorites now! Specifically because of it’s features that make it so perfect for the busy Mom or Dad that has kids! Why? Because of the Waterproof feature!
No kidding I have heard so many times friends and family asking how to save their phone after it has been dropped into water, or fallen out of a pocket into the toilet; or a kid decided to take it to the pool and..ooops! You guessed it. The phone fell in! I think water damage is the #1 cause why my friends and family have to get new cell phones so frequently. So having a waterproof phone just makes sense!
The Kyocera is just like any other android. It is easy to navigate. You install apps the same way. It has a 4.5 inch qHD impact-resistant touchscreen display which is great for families with kids that love to play on the phone! I can’t even count the number of times my phone has been dropped by my kids. So having impact-resistant display is a crucial feature to put my mind at ease.
It also has an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and video camera. As well as a 2,000mAh battery for longer use on a single charge. Longer battery use is always a big deal for me since I always run my battery down long before the day is over.
I absolutely love the size of the Kyocera. It fits perfectly in the palm of my petite hands, But doesn’t feel too small that I can’t text easily or that I can’t see the screen well. It is thicker than the HTC but not too thick that it feels bulky. The texture of the back casing is great as it helps you get a firm grip to help decrease the chances of dropping it.
The many options for the Kyocera Waterproof phone
So why does the Kyocera make the perfect family phone? Think of all the fun summer activities you have going on? This often means a lot of travel. The last you want is a dropped and broken phone while you are away from home.
But most importantly; the waterproof feature. Most often in the summer we spend our time at the pool, or water park, or just outside with the sprinklers. I love capturing moments of my kids having fun in the water. But I’m far too scared to have my expensive camera out there to take the shots. My DSLR is SO not waterproof! Now you can get over that fear with the Kyocera waterproof phone!
No more worries about the phone falling into the pool; or getting splashed in the kid’s latest water fight! It can actually handle being submerged for up to 30 minutes without any water damage!
And then add to that; my favorite way to relax after a long day. A nice bubble bath! I love reading in the tub. I love to catch up with emails or chatting with friends. But would I ever dare take my tablet or other phones into the tub with me? Oh goodness no!
But I can relax in a nice relaxing soak; reading books on the kindle app, or browse Facebook, or read my friend’s blogs while I’m in the tub with no worry about the phone taking damage.
I also love that even after all this soaking in the water testing it out; the Kyocera can still take some pretty great shots! Just check them out on our instagram feed!
Overall; having a waterproof phone has been awesome! It really gives peace of mind not worrying about water ruining the phone! And it opens up the possibilities for capturing a lot more summer time fun moments with the kids!
So if you have struggled with water damaging your phones; it may well be that the Kyocera Hydro Vibe is the perfect waterproof phone for you!
