The Hydro Life keeps up with the Hydro Vibe's (another 2014 release) 4.5-inch IPS qHD screen. It also has the same processing power with a quad-core engine clocked in at 1.2GHz. It brings back defining features of Kyocera's Hydro series: shock-resistant body, water- and dust-proof casing, and the Smart Sonic receiver technology. The Life has the same battery power at 2000mAh, with the MaxiMZR power-saving mode as well. That said, it scales down camera resolution to 5-megapixel (Vibe: 8-megapixel), and does not offer LTE-Cat3 like other Hydro variants do.
