Kyocera Hydro Elite Review
Go to page
The camera interface is laid-out well and is easy to use, with settings for the flash, resolution, brightness, white balance, picture modes, exposure, focusing, contrast, image stabilization, GPS location, six scene modes.
Unfortunately, outside images taken by the 8MP shooter are not impressive, as colors generally look dull and dark, and suffer from a lack of clarity. Inside images were also a let-down, as color reproduction was poor and there was plenty of visible grain. Furthermore, the LED Flash doesn’t do its job well, as it hardly illuminates a dark room. With this in mind, the videos captured from the device at 1920x1080p resolution are some of the worst that we’ve recently seen, as again the image is so dark and dreary, that it looks like it belongs in a B rated horror movie.

For playing back your tunes, your only option on the Hydro Elite is the Google Play Music app – unless you download another player. Again, this is a Stock Android app, so it covers the basics, with music categories for genres, artists, and albums. Music playback through the rear speaker is OK, but it does lack the volume and fullness of the front stereo speakers on the Casio G’zOne Commando 4G LTE.
Playing back our own video files looked nice on the 4.3” 720p display, and most formats are supported, such as MPEG-4, H.264, DivX and Xvid.

Well seeing this. I'm getting the Commando 4g. Plus I see no FM Radio listed like the Commando 4G has.

I am excited about it.
what about its brightness compared to for example the HTC one mini or the Xperia V?
