The Kyocera Hydro Edge has critical pros and cons that you need to know. The following analysis of its specs reveals which good points there are to love about it and which not-so-good points you need to be careful about.

Cons (or Not-so-great Features):

Ostensibly no HDMI port:

It's all well and good that the Kyocera Hydro Edge can record high-resolution 1280 x 720 movies, but we were disappointed not to find any evidence of the Hydro Edge featuring an HDMI port (which is convenient to watch HD videos on your shiny HDTV.)

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.

Slower smartphone:

Not too long ago, this smartphone's processing specs would have appeared nice, but compared to recent smartphones, this 1GHz Snapdragon MSM8627 processor with only 1GB of RAM looks a little pale.

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

Rugged:

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

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:

Kyocera claims the Kyocera Hydro Edge offers a talk time of 780 minutes. That's significantly higher than average.

Thin form factor:

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