Excerpt: Not as bad as the SamsungSPH-A460, but it comes close. This phone was large, heavy, had a laughable screen display, and battery life that rivals the reliability of a Kia. In other words, not that good. the pros of this phone- speakerphone cons- everything else.
Excerpt: [This is probably a moot point as this phone and the series is outdated] I've owned this phone's predecessor, the 4500, for at least two years, probably more. It is a basic phone that has been bomb-proof. I got it with Sprint and I seem to get good reception and good battery life.
Excerpt: We just upgraded to vision phones from the Sanyo 4700. Had them for about a year and a half - never had any problems whatsoever. Sanyo did a wonderful job with this one. The ringer is quite loud and able to be heard in the noisiest of environments.

Excerpt: I've been using the Sanyo 4500-4700 for a year and a half. This phone is awesome. The candy bar style is not too small not too big, not too heavy, not too light. The speaker phone works well (Sanyo says the 4900 will have a better speaker phone! [as stated at the Sprint users conf.
