As one of the original PA with the Hydro Edge, I was pretty impressed. Now, that I have the Vibe there are some key differences that I am impressed with and I have labeled them with the yellow highlight below. Thanks to Phone Scoop. They had a nice comparison chart I could use to get into the Vibe of comparing. You can access those links below.
