Kyocera Hydro ELITE review

Kyocera has released more than a few waterproof phones over the past several months. In fact, we have taken a look at a few of them here at Android Community. There was the Kyocera Torque and Hydro Edge, both of which had decent specs, but appeared more of the focus was on the water-resistance. Well, we are now taking a look at the Kyocera Hydro Elite and as the 'elite' in the name would suggest, the specs are stepped up a bit. This one is still not what we would classify as high-end, but it should be a good option for anyone looking for a waterproof handset with Verizon Wireless. Read on to see how the handset stood up during our testing.
