Sanyo Katana Eclipse review

5.9/10 AVG.
RATING



5.9/10
Informr score
The Sanyo Katana Eclipse currently has an Informr score of 5.9 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 20 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The Sanyo Katana Eclipse is the fifth in the Katana franchise and holds its own quite well.

This CDMA clamshell has a modern, glossy look and feel and comes with a mid-range feature set sure to please the casual user and pernicious alike.

Measuring only 3.6 x 1.9 x 0.7 inches and weighing just 3.4 ounces, the Eclipse is small, but small in a good way, not cramped or difficult to use.

The main display is a 2 inch, 176 x 220 pixel screen capable of reproducing the now standard 65K colors. The secondary, external display measures 1 inch and has a 96 x 96 resolution and can be used for GPS navigation. The Eclipse is rated at 4.6 hours of talk time.

The phone also has a 1.3MP camera, stereo Bluetooth 2.0 and internet access via a WAP 2.0 browser.

Also included is a 500 name capacity, customizable phone book, alarm, calendar, calculator, stopwatch and the ever present World Clock. There are voice command controls for dialing, recording and speakerphone.

The Eclipse has a unique look and a useful feature set and should please flip phone fans.
