terrible phone

 

Jul 4, 2014 by Rpv2021

Carrier: MetroPCS

I bought this phone about 2 months ago and let me you don't buy it it starts kind of slow but I'm hear to tell you it gets worse randomly slowing down for sometimes days at a time like today and the last three days for me it took me five minutes to load this page and if you want to watch a video then ask yourself the question are you feeling lucky because though the speed can be good at times most of the time it's like 2g speed

Kyocera Hydro XTRM (GSM)

 

Aug 18, 2014 by Ahad4me

Carrier: MetroPCS

So far the Hydro is working for me. I haven't dropped it (yet) and it hasn't been in water. All of the advertised features other than those are working great. The only problem I have is the camera. The clarity isn't what I thought it should be. Still in all it's a decent phone. I would probably go with something else were this phone not so new and I'd known more about it before purchasing. Still I have no regrets. For what I paid for it, I got a great deal. It was hard to get initially. Seems like this phone is hard to find. It's helpful if you clear out the apps menu as it helps extend the battery life. I like this phone, it's pretty good.

Not a good phone

 

Aug 10, 2014 by CD_Jones

At full volume on a call- is scratchy, turn down a couple and ok. I put 32G SD card and set to save to SD card. download app still loads on phone with no way to transfer to SD. with only 1 G storage on phone, not enough to be useful. bought it at $29. Orig $179. Not worth 29 if you use very many aps. Some aps you can transfer, but not many of the ones I use.

Perfect Backup Phone/ Teen Phone

 

Jul 14, 2014 by Hernz24

Carrier: T-Mobile

Bought this phone as a temporary/backup after selling my LG G2. (Waiting for the G3) And its not that bad. It does have a problems due to low internal (1GB) memory. Especially when FB app tries to update. It fails to update citing no storage available when 250 Mbs are available. So I end up clearing cached memory to update the FB app.

I'm ready for the G3, but this phone is great if you want something simple (4G) and are in the market for a phone that can handle any waterborne issue (Up to 30 minutes) and take a tumble on the concrete, then make a call without missing a beat.
I paid $150.00 for it, so it's a perfect fit for teens more so than your above average android user. I'll still use this phone when I'm riding my mountain bike or hitting the pool. And keep my G3 in the truck.

liked my old phone better

 

Jul 5, 2014 by Charlise

Carrier: MetroPCS

I had an LG Motion but I have a 3 yr old that dropped it in the toilet. It was saved with rice but I thought the Hydro Extreme would be a good investment.
It might turn out to be used as a back up mini tablet but as a phone I'm not happy.
The smart sound technology isn't so smart. I'm constantly hearing people tell me they can't hear me. I can't always understand them either.
The claim of 4gb memory isn't exactly totally revealing. Only about 1 of those are available to you. It's constantly telling me low storage and I have to delete things. An issue I NEVER had with my Motion.
The apps I have on my SD card aren't showing icons /shortcuts in my apps and I still haven't figured out how to fix that.
The camera is beyond slow too. Between the time you snap and the time it actually takes the picture the shot is gone. With kids and pets allot gets missed.
I wish there was a water proof shock proof Motion and I'd be totally happy with my phone.
