Excerpt: I recently purchased a Sanyo-5400 and it has been nothing but great things. The blue blacklight is a beautiful feature to this phone. Also, the Speakerphone is remarkable, it can actually be sometimes too loud. The LED on the front side of this phone adds nice color to your phone everytime it is ringing. It can store a whole lot of ringtones and its Internet browser is unmatched.
Excerpt: cbb10 review is completely false in its negative comments-
This phone is great. I have used almost every phone Sprint has put on the market. This phone has the best of everything.
Reception - clear and always strong
Vision - super fast and efficient
ReadyLink - quick and fun (the first contact has a 2-3 delay but times after are about 1 sec. delay)
ReadyLink is great for having quick conversations and instant contact.
Excerpt: I recently traded in my old LG 5350 for a Sanyo phone. I've never owned Sanyo before. After just a few days with this phone, I have come to love it! There are many pros with this phone, and a couple cons, so here they are in my opinion!
Signal strength is awesome! I'm getting 4 bars in my apt, where as with the LG I only ever had 2 at the most.
WEB: The web loads much faster than my old LG. It seems to be snappier on the Sanyo, and fails less often.
Excerpt: Overall this is a descent phone. Upgrading from a Nokia 3360 this is a huge jump, has a pretty good speakerphone (althought at anything over medium volume it starts to crackle) and the case/flip is quite sturdy, the buttons are easy to navigate.
The Reception is good, but not great.
Excerpt: After reading numerous positive opinions and reviews about this phone, I set-out to my local Sprint Store to purchase this phone. While in the store, I made several calls on this model to Sprints' automated CS line. The call reception on this phone was loud and sharp, but considerably on the muffled side. It sounded a bit like listening through a tin can. I inquired to the sales rep. if he had heard any other opinions about what I was speaking about.
Excerpt: This phone is very durable and is reliable and above all simple.
Loud and adjustable speaker-phone volume
Great earpice volume
Decent calls with 1 or 2 bars
Bulky-easy to find
Big internal screen
Big external screen
Loud ring-tones-Simple ones and ones for teens
Feels like plastic
Excerpt: Used with Sprint in KC, Lawrence, and Topeka KS.
1. Speaker phone, used open or closed.
2. Voice Recognition, used open or closed
3. Color Screen clarity main and sub.
4. Menu options and ease of use.
5. Signal level.
1. incoming sound quality when used as a pone. Worst I have ever heard - very, very, frustrating with so many other good features and performance.
Excerpt: I work closely with Sanyo phones in the wireless industry, and as such I'm afforded the opportunity to field test the devices before they become available to the public. Based upon computer generated projections of Sprint coverage I was able to use this phone in an area which is not even with in the digital coverage area. What's more, it had full reception nearly the entire evening. I used the voice services, vision service, and the new ready link service.
Excerpt: I really LOVE my Sanyo 4500 (RL 2500) phone! I would have liked to own a 5500 (picture version) of same phone, but am not allowed to have one at work that takes pictures!
I have had my phone for about 10 days and so far am still giddy every time I use it!
It has great reception, lots of built in ringer choices including old style "ringer" types that you can actually hear if you have the phone in your coat! The downloading is quick and the screen is crisp and clear!
Excerpt: I gotta say, this is a fabulous phone. Even if you don't use Readylink, it's a great improvement over the 8100.
- Speakerphone is very useful, but at very high volumes the speaker begins to crackle, though that is expected for a speaker of its size.
- Vision is faster and seems more reliable; pages load faster.
- Speaker is much better than the 8100, so MobiTV, 1KTV, games, etc, all sound great.
