Kyocera Domino (photos)

The Kyocera Domino is a bare-bones cell phone for MetroPCS and Cricket Wireless. However, some important flaws overshadow its strongest elements.

Look familiar?

If the Kyocera Domino looks familiar to you, it's because this phone (for MetroPCS and Cricket Wireless) closely resembles the Kyocera Jax with its tall, slender frame.

Hand feel

The Domino feels good in the hand and on the ear. The lightness doesn't seem to lend itself, however, to durability.

Profile

There's a 2.5mm headset jack and a Micro-USB port on the Domino.

Screen and navigation

The screen is way too small, at only 1.8 inches, and its resolution is much lower than competing entry-level handsets. The navigation array is cramped, but we found the dial pad workable.

Back

There's not much more beyond a matte black back cover on the Domino's dorsal view. Snapping off the stubborn cover was a nail-bending task.
