Kyocera Domino S1310 (purple, MetroPCS)

 

Editors' note: The Kyocera Domino is available on MetroPCS and Cricket Wireless. The phone's design will be the same on both networks, but voice network performance will vary on the two models, as will some of the bundled apps. We reviewed the MetroPCS...

The Kyocera Domino is highly portable and easy to use. Call quality is fairly reliable.

While the small screen and low resolution are the Domino's biggest black marks, the cramped display and thin volume rocker are also disappointing.

The Kyocera Domino offers portability and decent call quality, but there are so many design drawbacks, you'd do better to choose a different entry-level phone.
