Excerpt: As a fan of the original Sanyo “ Katana ” phone (I got it before the Razr came to Sprint) I could not wait to try the Sanyo “ Katana DLX” when it came out and I was very happy to be able to try the phone out. I love the shine that the phone has and I enjoy the way light beams out of the redesigned rectangular shape.
Excerpt: I recently upgraded my phone and I'm loving it! I love all the extra features this phone carries. It's like having a computer at the palm of my hand. I can check my email, the weather, and movie times without calling the theater. It's light and slim and attractive looking. I love the screen on the phone and the clarity it has.
Excerpt: This is a great phone. I got it when my first Katana FINALLY bit the dust. It is GREAT. Very user friendly, very easy to navigate and use. The ringtones weren't the greatest and i have a little bit of trouble with the email feature, but overall it is a GREAT buy!
Very attractive phone, a little outdated functions
3 October 2010
Summary: pro: Very good looking phone, easy to use, has camera, bluetooth, web access. cons: camera is less than 1 megapixel, limited functions compared with current cellphones. Overall: Nice basic cellphone, good signal, easy to use, decent battery life, basic photos, web access works well with sprint 3G.
Summary: I like this particular model for its' simplicity. If you have a DATA plan with sprint, this model DOES support Sprint Telenav GPS software which can be downloaded from sprint's online store free of charge. Also this device can handle Sprint Mobile E-mail and Opera 4.1 Turbo. Basically I can surf the internet just as if I had a computer with Opera installed. It is amazing that this lower class device can do a lot of the same functions as the expensive ones. All in all...
Summary: I was using my backup phone but it broke so I ordered this katana to replace it. i am due for an upgrade soon and will be changing back to a blackberry but for the mean time will be using this one. it is a great, user friendly and basic phone.
Summary: Like the phone because it is: Rugged, battery lasts forever and nice picture, features. Recommend to anyone! Decided to buy for all the features listed above- and the good price (this was a replacement phone for same model that was damaged in a football game)
