I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Sprint. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.

Have fun this summer around water with the new Kyocera waterproof phone.  No more worrying about losing your cell phone on your beach vacation.

When my husband and I were dating we spent a summer on opposite ends of the country.  I was interning in Washington D.C. and he was playing on a cruise ship in the Mexican Riviera.   Guess who had more fun?!  That is until someone jumped off a water taxi in to crystal blue water that was way deeper than it appeared – with his phone in his pocket.  I think we all have a story or two including water, a cell phone and rice.  Thanks to Sprint and my #SprintMom Ambassadorship, I was able to try the new Kyocera Hydro Vibe. You can now take your cell phone with you to the beach, pool, boating or any other fun summer activities that involve water.

The new Kyocera Hydro Vibe 4G LTE  waterproof phone can be completely submerged in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.  I don't know about you, but it's nice to know that I can take my phone to the pool, hiking, or the water park without fear of ruining it.   But first, I wanted to test it out to see if it truly was a waterproof phone.  So I threw the phone in a bowl of water and went to clean up lunch in the kitchen.  I let it sit for about 5-10 minutes before I came back.

I let the phone dry on a towel, but it worked it just fine right out of the water.  The screen seemed to lose a little sensitivity when wet, but it worked just fine and is still working.   The Kyocera Hydro Vibe is smaller in size and so it's lighter and easier to take with you.  But what it lacks in size (if that is important to you) it definitely makes up for in being waterproof.   I even left it sitting out on the picnic table at our campsite when it rained and the phone kept on working.  The Kyocera Hydro Vibe is also a great value for the price when purchased through Sprint. As part of Sprint’s offerings on this new device, the Kyocera Hydro Vibe waterproof 4G LTE smartphone will have the added benefit of running on the Sprint Spark network, which enhances the phone’s LTE service, allowing for high quality video. All around this is a great phone for the on the go family!
