Excerpt: i have had the 880 for a day now, i am extremely unhappy with it.
I'm a sanyo man. buddies of mine praise the samsung so i thought i would give this phone a try. the color was different which caught my eye. the screen resolution was awesome, and the phone was small, and more attractive than the 8300.
Excerpt: I've owned quite a few Sprint phones and this one did not measure up.
**The form factor on this phone is very tiny, but well made. It's solidly constructed and closed with a decent "snap."
**The camera is great and takes some of the best cell pictures I've ever seen.
**The big killer for me was the noise cancellation, which tended to cut people off constantly, making calls near impossible in areas with less than four bars.
Excerpt: + PROS
> unique and attractive styling. Purplish color may seem odd at first, but very easy to get used to. Keypad uniquely shaped and contoured for surprising ease of use when dialing/texting by "touch".
> screen/camera. Gorgeous 262K screen - clarity and richness of color is incredible. Megapixel camera looks very nice.
> small form factor. Was used to Nextel Brick phones; this contrasts them very niceley and fits easily into jeans pocket.
Excerpt: The form factor is nice...it's small...but almost too small. The fact that there is not antenna is what made me buy the phone. It has a nice purple hue to it and since purple is my favorite color, how could I go wrong.
The reception is usually great. Having been a Verizon customer for 10 years, this whole migration to Sprint has not been that good. But, only time will tell.
This phone has noise cancellation and this is the number one reason why I am returning the phone.
Excerpt: I upgraded to this phone for myself and the Sanyo 8300 for my husband. I bought this one solely on the basis of how nice it looks. The phone is so attractive that I wish that it worked as well and had as much functionality as the Sanyo 8300, because I hate to give up the great looks!
Unfortunately, I need my phone to work great and looks are optional so back it goes for the (less expensive, but better functionality) Sanyo 8300.
Excerpt: Ordered this on-line (couldn't find in any stores). Just came in today, but I am sending it back for tow reasons. #1. very small, for a tall man, ear piece out of sync, keypad not in sync for "normal" functioning.
#2. (and the main reason), lavendar tinge to the metallic finish, almost like it was meant to be marketed to the ladies.
Excerpt: Pros: Great screen, Great Pics, Nice Shape.
Cons: What is the deal with the ear piece??? When I'm using the phone...yeah I can hear the other person ALONG with all the background noises!! Hopefully I can return it and go with something else!!!
