Phones
Hi, I'm Jessica Dolcourt from CNET taking a First Look today at the Kyocera Domino. This is a phone for MetroPCS and also for Cricket. The major differences are the colors. It's purple for MetroPCS and champagne gold for Cricket. Also, performance and features will vary slightly. It's got a pretty basic candy bar design. It's got a very small 1.8-inch display with pretty cramped navigation below and the dial pad does a little bit better with slightly larger keys and some space between them. The keys are also raised so they're pretty easy to press. No camera on the back, that's not a bad thing, just means it's a very basic phone. The major problem with this phone for me is the screen. It's really, really small. Again, 1.8 inches and it also has a very low resolution. Looking at the screen and all of the apps on it, it's cramped, it's narrow, and it just isn't comfortable at all. Inside, there are all the essential apps like your calculator and your calendar, things like that, and then the carriers are also gonna add some of their own apps. With this model, for example, MetroPCS adds its backup app, its own e-mail and its branded browser. Call quality and speakerphone are honestly the best things about this phone other than its lightness and portability because it is very slim. It's priced pretty well at $30 retail for MetroPCS and about $10 more and that's $40 retail for Cricket Wireless, although you will find deals. Again, for me, it's just really hard to look past this very small, very low resolution screen and I think that there are a lot better phones in Cricket and MetroPCS' lineup. I'm Jessica Dolcourt and this is the Kyocera Domino for MetroPCS and Cricket Wireless.
