Description

The Hydro Plus is waterproof, its IPX7 certification protecting it “against water immersion in up to 3.28 feet (1 meter) for up to 30 minutes.” That’s the handset’s main selling point, because its other features aren’t that attractive, including a 3.5 inch HVGA (320 x 480) IPS display, 3.2MP rear camera with LED flash, an old single-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM-8655 processor, 512MB of RAM, a 4GB MicroSD card pre-installed, and a battery that should be able to provide up to 8.5 hours of talk-time.
