Kyocera Hydro Edge Phone Review
Did you know that the Kyocera Hydro Edge doesn't appear to feature 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:
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.

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.
