  • Excerpt: I have this phone for about 3 years now, and it still works, it's all beat up but it works, personal experience with almost all sanyo phones ether through work or personal use has made me like them better than anything else on the market with few exceptions, i'm getting the 5600 for my self and i'm trying to get an unlocked sanyo s750 gsm european phone for my brother.

Sanyo is the best!

  • Excerpt: Let me first say that I have worked in the wireless industry for the past 4 years and that when I first got this phone I worked for PCS. I tried a Samsung first, then an LG, and finally this phone in March 2002. Can I tell you that I have never seen a phone yet that I would even think about moving too- besides maybe that Black Hitachi they carried. The menu driven displays (instead of the goofy icons) is excellent!

The best of the old and the new.

Phone Scoop
20 November 2002
  • Excerpt: After a year and a half away from Sprint, I decided to give it one more try. I always liked the design of the 5150, but wondered what it's signal would be like. I must say that I am impressed! Whereas a year ago, I could not get a signal in my house, now I can talk for hours! The screen on this phone is awesome! It has that xenon pale white look to it, that the new 3G phones don't have. The menu is great, and the downloads are cool!

An improvement on an already great phone

Phone Scoop
14 November 2002
  • Excerpt: This phone is too cool!! It is a modification of the 5000, which is awesome!! Full color display, downloadable ringer and screensaver, sleek,and loaded with features. The battery life on it leaves something to be desired, but other than that, it's definately a must buy!!

Signal Strength+options+design

Phone Scoop
30 August 2002
  • Excerpt: Am now settling for the Sanyo 4900 untill they fix the 5150 ear volumn. Have owned 3 Sanyos, 3 Samsungs, 1 PrintPCS, mostly in the past 3 months. I am convienced that between the 3 manufactures Sanyo has the best signal strength (4/5 bars) and Samsung the worst (1/2 bars). This is important to me since I must be able to receive and hold calls regardless of location. However, I must admit Samsung has the nicest designs of all manufactures.

Sanyo 5150 better than the new 3G phones

Phone Scoop
11 August 2002
  • Excerpt: Sanyo 5150 is better than the new 3G phones. The new phones do not have anything differnt except that Sprint is not allowing 5150 to access Data. They turned off 5150's EIN for Data. Sprint is in bed with Samsung for the moment. However, with all that said this is still a 3g phone that could hold the techno nerds over for another year or another upgrade for the phone hits the market.

the most reliable phone out there

Phone Scoop
6 August 2002
  • Excerpt: I have used every phone offered by Sprint PCS and I love the SCP-5150. I actually had a Sanyo 5000 but upgraded. The phone has flawless reception and strong battery life. My only issue is that it does not always catch the first number you type when switching from wallpaper to call initiation. I am looking forward to new 3G phones from Sprint PCS.......until then, the Sanyo 5150 is a sure bet.

So far so good

no2gates, Phone Scoop
1 July 2002
  • Excerpt: I've had the 5150 for 3 days so far and love it. The phone holds a signal better than others I've had, the pointer/mouse thing is not great but it's fairly good. The sound quality is very good, but the only thing I don't like is the speaker hole is a single hole, that you have to position just right to hear the caller.
