When I started shopping around for a new cell phone there were a couple of things that I wanted and a couple of things that I needed. There is a difference between the two. I prefer a full keyboard to make texting easier and I need something with a flexible plan. I text a lot more than I talk so getting a package that offers that is usually the deal breaker.
The Kyocera Hydro is advertised as being a waterproof phone; that is really pushing the definition of the word though. There are limits to the depth of the water and the exposure time so it is not waterproof but rather water-resistant. Drop it in the sink, no problem. Drop it in a swimming pool, you might be in trouble.
