The big, the bad, the beautiful.

The 5" impact-resistant touchscreen with reinforced housing and non-slip finish is easy to read, and the phone's hard to drop, so you can quit worrying about your phone and start worrying about having a good time.

This phone's all wet, and that's alright.

Hydro WAVE's durable design is certified to Military Standard 810G for shock, and is waterproof for up to 30 minutes. The WAVE's Wet Touchscreen Operation, the screen on the Hydro WAVE keeps on working even when it's wet, so you're never left high and dry.

*Certified for IP57, protection against water immersion for up to 30 minutes in up to 3.28 feet (1 meter) of water. Phone will not operate under water and should be dried as quickly as possible when wet.

Life's a lot cooler when you can catch it.

Hydro WAVE isn't just another pretty face. This baby takes beautiful pictures too thanks to a 5MP camera and video camcorder with digital zoom, LED flash, color effects, continuous shooting, smile shutter and HDR. It even has a 2MP front-facing camera for taking selfies. When it comes to capturing all those great moments, WAVE is picture perfect.

Fast and not furious.

You're always on the move, and the last thing you need is a phone that gives you lead feet. With 4G data and a 1.2GHz Quad-core processor for fast access to apps and the Web, this puppy doesn't slow down for anything, and now neither do you.

Bigger is better.

When it comes to reading text on a screen, some folks just think bigger is better. Thanks to MagniFont, you can enlarge the font size of the text for a screen that's easy to read and even easier to love. And we think that's a pretty big deal.

Home sweet home.

Too much tech talk can make some people as nervous as a cat in a dog park. Core Home mode lets you choose between tried-and-true Android and an even simpler user interface that replicates the feel and operation of a feature phone. And it can be turned on or off whenever you need it. It's always good to see a familiar face.
