The hardware is mostly good, though I wish the dialpad buttons were a little easier to differentiate. The menu system and feature set are as basic as it gets, with little in the way of extras that could make using the phone enjoyable. Making calls is a snap, as is pecking out text messages, but it's criminal that users have to search for and download email and IM clients from Sprint's crummy portal. Lacking even the most basic social networking features leaves this phone out of the modern era. It's a device straight from 2004.

As the Vero is nothing much more than a phone we were hoping for great call quality and it delivered. Callers rated us an 8.5/10, saying that we sounded very good with no echoing, no excessive background noise and great overall clarity. They sounded very natural to us with good tone reproduction and overall quality. The battery is rated at 5.2 hours of talk time, which for the target audience is probably about all they’ll talk in a month. Ours sat in standby mode for several days before needing a recharge, so for the average user charging it two times a week should be quite am... Full review
One thing Sanyo does do consistently well is phone quality, and the Sanyo Incognito SCP-6760 keeps this tradition alive. Callers were very impressed with how clear we sounded, giving us a 9/10 rating. They sounded very good to us as well, voices were natural and the volume was good. The battery is rated at 5.1 hours, a bit below the Reclaim’s 6 hours, but standby time is excellent and our device went for more than a week without needing a charge.
In the end we just couldn’t get into the Incognito. It’s an EnV2 knockoff, two years... Full review
For what it is, the 2700 covers the basics of messaging and phone functionalities well. Its target customer - pre-teens, Tweens, young teens - will be happy with how easily they can keep in touch with t heir posse via SMS, IM and emails. They'll also appreciate the smaller size of the phone and the relatively good looks. What they may miss, however, is a lack of good social networking services, such as Facebook or MySpace.
People looking for even slightly more advanced features, such as a music player, video capture and 3G web browsing, will be sorely disappointed, as none of t... Full review
The inside of the Eclipse X features a large keypad with with rectangular keys that seemed a bit stiff during use. The phone offers dedicated back, speaker, and camera buttons, but it should be noted that none of the keys located around the d-pad cluster can be read in the dark, even when the backlight is on. That makes the phone a bit harder for novices to use when the lights go down.
In terms of call audio, the Eclipse seemed a bit muddled during our test calls and wasn't as clear as we had hoped. The speakerphone, on the other hand, provided us with audio that was easily as go... Full review
Sanyo's newest weapon in the mobile phone wars has a decidedly old-fashioned design. Looks aside, it's a passable multimedia phone: The interface is efficient, and built-in GPS serves up turn-by-turn directions that beat static, collision-inducing Google Maps. Support for Sprint's TV and music services means you'll never be bored at the DMV again. It also comes in pink, if that's how you roll.
WIRED: Easy-to-carry, 0.6-inch-thick design. Sharp QVGA screen. Sensible button layout. Keys have nice bounce. Included 128-MB microSD card is better than nothing.
TIRED: Kinda f... Full review
The blocky Sanyo M1 is not exactly what you would call the sexiest phone on Sprint's shelves. But what it lacks on the outside, it makes up for on the inside with its numerous applications and utilities.
The unassuming M1 is definitely a workhorse. Starting with its on-board 1GB of memory, Bluetooth capabilities, and 2 megapixel auto-focus camera, to name a few, the M1 is capable of offering and delivering a serious multimedia bang. Sprint's EV-DO data network helps deliver some great music and video services. This phone is an excellent option for both audio and video fans alike.... Full review
