Excerpt: Ive been using the phone for a week now and am thoroughly satisfied. Its small and lightweight enough to slip into a shirt or coat pocket and not be bothersome, and its got an impressive battery for its size. Call quality is great, worthy of the sprint+sanyo legacy it has inherited. The speaker is a good improvement over the first Katana, bringing it up to par with the rest of the sanyo line up.
Excerpt: Well, it's been a few weeks down the road with the S1, and I must say that so far, I like this sucker. Considering my last phone was a 6275i (claimed by the White screen of Death, than abruptly raised from the dead and got stuck in the infinite reboot loop), the S1 demanded a little adaptation - no more MP3, microSD and cam, which I had honestly grew used to. Now, on to the buisness at hand.
Excerpt: No doubt some young person will complain this phone doesn't have a MP3 player or a bad camera in it. That isn't the point of a phone in my view. I would note up front the phonescoop reviewer does not hold the phone correctly. Support the top of the phone with your index finger (like the most iPods) and you will have no trouble texting. The phone offers fine voice quality, loud volume, a speakerphone (also loud) and bluetooth.
