Kyocera Hydro Edge (Sprint) Review
The good: The Kyocera Hydro Edge is a waterproof handset that's reasonably priced and accepts microSD cards of up to 32GB.
The bad: The handset has inconsistent 3G data speeds, mediocre call quality, and lacks a front-facing camera.
The bottom line: Consider the Kyocera Hydro Edge if you're looking for a low-price splash proof phone, but skip it if its water resistance isn't a main priority for you.
