Hydro life Waterproof. Drop proof. Life proof.

Spills, drops and noisy environments will never be a problem again with the Hydro LIFE smartphone.
How to buy

Waterproof means life ready.

Jump in the sprinkler. Play in the rain. Snap a family photo poolside. Hydro LIFE is waterproof* so it can handle spills and submersions with no worries.

*Hydro LIFE meets IPX5 and IPX7 standards for water spray and immersion for up to 30 minutes at a depth up to 3.28 feet (1 meter). Phone should be dried as quickly as possible when wet. To ensure that your phone is waterproof, make sure the battery door is properly sealed.

Roll with the falls, drops and tumbles.

Hydro LIFE is ready for whatever comes its way. It's Military Standard 810G protected against drop and shock. And the 4.5" impact-resistant touchscreen makes it tough enough to handle everyday accidents. Not to mention the 4.5" qHD makes watching videos, playing games and surfing the web as easy as tap and go.

Don't raise the volume. Get better technology.

Smart Sonic Receiver is another way of saying you'll be able to hear where you never could before. The entire touchscreen acts as a speaker. When it presses against your ear, sound transmits as vibrations that go directly from the screen into your eardrum.

Lose the worry. Capture the fun.

Make memories last forever with Hydro LIFE's camera. It's waterproof so snapping a shot on the waterslide is no problem – especially with the 5MP rear camera with LED flash, color effect, continuous shooting, smile shutter, HDR and quick shot. And between the 2MP front-facing camera and video camcorder equipped with digital zoom, capturing the ride from start to finish will be a breeze.

Talk. Text. Surf the web. Faster.

The 1.2GHz quad-core processor offers more speed and power. Whether you're researching or playing on the Internet, you can do it faster and easier.
