Excerpt: Why do I rate this phone zero? Because the main purpose of a phone is to talk to people right? Well, the sound quality (speakerphone or just talking normal) is absolutely horrible.
I have made about 20 calls in a couple of days to various friends and family. I have to keep asking them to repeat themselves because every sound that comes through this phone sounds like they are talking through a box and their words are not clear at all.
Excerpt: Just purchased this phone yesterday. Needed a phone that could double as a music player.
Pros: Purchased Sirius for my music needs and it works and sounds great. Handset is same size as the 8200, which is a good phone also.
Speed in accessing web page/Vision homepage, is the fastest I have seen yet. Vibrating mode is very strong, which for me is Very important. Speaker is better than 8200 when using speakerphone.
Cons: Camera is not as good as 8200.
Excerpt: Pro: Good battery life, good reception
Cons: Not very rugged - easily damaged
Poor received sound
I've had cell phones since 1987, and have been using my MM-8300 for about 4 months. The MM-8300 does not seem to have the usual durability expected from a cell-phone, as ts LCD has already began developing internal cracks (with 60% of the view now lost) even though the entire case is without a blemish.
Excerpt: THIS IS MY THIRD ONE TO OWN. STILL CAN'T GET IT RIGHT. PROS CUTE AND SMALL. CONS POOR SOUND. POOR SPEAKER QUALITY. LOTS OF DROP CALLS. BATTERY LIFE TOO SHORT. AFTER 20 MINUTES OF TALKING BATTERY GOES DOWN. OVER ALL BAD RECEPTION.
Excerpt: I love this phone from upgrading from the sanyo 8200 to this model its so much better. I love the speaker phone and the camera. The things that I don't really like is the fact that if you are in a loud setting such as work or in a store sometimes its very hard to hear the phone go off even if its on the highest volume of ringer.
Excerpt: Being a new Sprint customer, I decided to try out the best selling phone in my local store. I got stuck with a red Sanyo 8300 and right off the bat, I said to myself, "this is one bulky phone". In this day and age of compact phones that don't hold back on bells and whistles, this phone (8300) has the bells and whistles but it sure is BIG just like all the other Sanyo predecessors in Sprint's line of phones.
