Hello, Brio

The Kyocera Brio is a new phone for Sprint. The biggest draw: it's free, with a new, two-year contract.

Compact

Nice and compact, the Brio is good for those with small hands--or for those with larger hands who enjoy small screens and keyboards.

One-handed operation

It's petite enough to open apps one-handed.

Keyboard close-up

The Brio's keyboard has ridged keys, which is great for grip, but they weren't the most comfortable.

Back

There's a 1.3-megapixel camera on the back. Beneath the back cover you'll find a microSD card slot that takes up to 32GB in external storage.

Side view

The volume rocker and camera trigger buttons are where they should be, but we aren't fans of the shape.
