Excerpt: I got this to replace an aged 8200 model. This model was indeed a much better upgrade to the 8200 for sure improving on many of it’s features and adding easy to exchange color covers. It was a welcome improvement, and for sure a good seller for Sanyo since did are needing all the help they can get.
Excerpt: I upgraded to the 8300 from the 8200 because my 8200 was dropping calls, power cycling, etc. This was only after 7 months of usage. But I got an incredible deal on the 8300, and couldn't pass it up. After 2 weeks, the phone began having its issues. During text messaging, the phone would lock up.
Excerpt: This phone would be a really awesome phone if it had came out 6 months ago. Pros Lightweight. Readylink. Speakerphone. 3 different colors with faceplates. Cons Subpar camera. GREEN leds on buttons. Stub antennae. Design is not innovative.
