Kyocera Hydro Edge Pros And Cons Review

Did you know that the Kyocera Hydro Edge doesn't seem to have an HDMI connector? And there are 2 more cons you need to know about. Check out our computer-generated Kyocera Hydro Edge pros and cons review, because each phone has advantages and disadvantages:

First, the Cons:

Ostensibly no HDMI port:

The Kyocera Hydro Edge can record high-resolution (1280 x 720 pixels) movies. Bravo! But we couldn't determine whether it had an HDMI port or not. Granted, HDMI (which lets you connect to your HDTV), is not an absolute necessity, but it seems like a desirable feature on an HD phone.

4.5 ounces is sort of bulky.

A little bulky:

We wouldn't say that the Hydro Edge is a heavyweight, but 4.5 ounces may feel a little overweight.

Touch screen is only a capacitive:

A large touch screen is nice, but we are not extremely impressed that it is just a capacitive model. Of course, capacitive screens are okay, but according to Wikipedia and many other expert sources, resistive touch screens are much better.


Now, the Pros:

As shown here, the Kyocera Hydro Edge is a rugged phone.

The Kyocera Hydro Edge is trumpeted as a rugged phone (more sturdy, better water-resistance, etc).

Dual processor:

Not only does it have a 1GHz processor clock speed, but it also has two cores.

In the box:

It includes these accessories: Micro-USB data cable, Included Accessories. It might be convenient.

Good frames-per-second video:

It records video clips at 30 frames per second, which is among the highest fps rating among video phones.

Superior battery life:

If Kyocera's measurements are accurate, the Hydro Edge and its (1600mAh) battery will allow 780 minutes of conversation, a lot of talk time!

Thin form factor:

At 9.9 millimeters, it is thinner than the average bar phone
