Waterproof Android Smartphone
According to industry statistics, more than 82.5 million mobile phones nationwide have been destroyed by water or moisture. Water damage also drives more than 20% of smartphone insurance claims during the summer months as consumers look to stay cool and connected by the pool.

"With other water-soaked smartphones, consumers instantly move into MacGyver mode attempting to beat the odds with dry rice, Ziploc bags and other home remedies that rarely work," said Andre Smith, vice president Boost Mobile. "With the Kyocera Hydro Smartphone, consumers can eliminate the panic of water damage and just enjoy their affordable Android Smartphone paired with Boost's award-winning no-contract service with payments that shrink over time."
Wireless devices and water generally are not a good combination
"The new Kyocera Hydro handset offers a great value for a sleek, fully featured smartphone - and being waterproof is really the icing on the cake," said Eric Anderson, senior vice president and general manager of global sales and marketing at Kyocera Communications, Inc. "Wireless devices and water generally are not a good combination, but with Hydro you finally get the peace of mind to know that they can peacefully coexist."
