I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Sprint. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
You all know I’m a pretty busy mama right? As such, one thing that helps me keep everything (and everyone) together is a good smartphone. But kids are messy and life can be chaotic so my super amazing smartphone also needs to be durable. Fragile phones and toddlers do not make for a good combination. And what happens if that mess I mentioned, happens to be wet (anyone ever had some juice or milk spilled on the table?). Or maybe you have to take a phone call from the office while your cheering the tween on at his or her soccer game…in the pouring rain of course. What happens to that smartphone then? Nothing, that’s what if you have the Kyocera Hydro Vibe 4G LTE and one of Virgin Mobile’s Unlimited plans.
Kyocera Hydro Vibe
First I’m going to tell you about this phone because when I found out it wasn’t scared of water or moisture, I was pretty stoked to check it out. It’s definitely a smartphone, with an Android OS, but it has a more rugged exterior and almost a rubber-like texture (which by the way helps keep a good grip on it when you’re wrangling toddlers with the other hand…just a little added bonus there). I live in the Pacific Northwest and lately we’ve seen quite a bit of rain and moisture. In fact, we’ve been threatened with snow this week so not having to worry about a little dampness on my life-line, is pretty awesome.
As if that’s not enough, the Kyocera Hydro Vibe has Smart Sonic Receive Technology which basically turns sound into vibrations. What this really means, is that even in a noisy location (like my living room or the playground or that soccer game), you will still get improved sound quality and more clear conversations. You mean I can actually hear and understand what other people are saying to me when the kids are screaming in the background?? This mama is sold!
Did You Say Unlimited??!!
You thought unlimited cell phone plans were a thing of the past right? Wrong! Check out Virgin Mobile‘s uh-may-zing and affordable unlimited plans. You even get to choose between a variety of options…kind of a build-your-own plan so you get what you need and don’t pay for what you don’t.
What Did We Learn?
- With the Kyocera Hydro Vibe you can take your phone out to play on a rainy day. Splash in those puddles and capture and share some beautiful fall memories with the 8MP camera without having to worry about water damage.
- Smart Sonic Receive Technology – turning sound into vibrations, you get improved sound quality and the ability to hear conversations clearly, even in noisy environments like at a playground or in an airport.
- Whether you have messy kids, tend to be clumsy, or need to use your phone at all times (even in inclement weather) the Kyocera Hydro Vibe 4G LTE can withstand the wetter elements! How many times have we all accidentally spilled a glass of water on the table and watched the puddle slowly inch toward our cell phones? (Too often! Am I right?!)
