Katana Blue

Posted on: October 10th, 2006 by Darin Brunet

The good: Bluetooth enabled, good quality speaker phone, sturdy, nice big buttonsThe bad: Battery lifeSummary: While this phone is not so great on battery life, the pros of it seem to outweigh this one con. There is good voice quality and excellent antennae reception. The buttons are nice and big for the less delicate dialers, and the phone is sturdy and not easily broken if dropped. If considering this phone, factor in a car charger as well.

Awesome Phone

Posted on: September 21st, 2006 by Max French

The good: Large Bright Screen and workes just great. This is the best phone I have ever owned. Easy to use and very stylish The bad: None at this timeSummary: I have had this phone for about a month now and it works perfect. Excellent sound quality gets reception even in areas with little or no cell coverage. The speakerphone on it works better than my desk phone. I only have to charge mine about every three days it holds the charge that well, and I use my phone a lot. I download and text message and call all the time. The phone is thin, yet, sturdy and well built. I have taken great pictures with it and I am very happy with this phone. My office mate bought the Verizon Chocolate and had nothing but problems with it, mostly the phone would use up the battery without him using it. He brought it to the Verizon store and they gave him an extended battery and even with that the phone would use up the charge without him using it at all. He then bought the Verizon Razor and it does not even come close to the Katana. I own two Katana Phones and gave one to my brother who lives in an area with weak cell coverage and he has no problems with his Katana. Sanyo built a great all around phone.

Great Phone!!

Posted on: July 19th, 2006 by Sarah Kelsner

The good: Thin, easy access to use the speakerphone, vibrant display, sound is always great, and the reception is as well. The phone looks sharp and feels very sturdy.The bad: The camera is not what you should buy this phone for. For a new Sprint phone I thought it should have had EV-DO. Summary: I am really glad I waited to re-new my contract and upgrade my phone to get the new Katana. It's new to me and I like that I haven't seen everyone else with it already. The features that it has, which are a lot, work well and I am able to access all of them easily.

Impressed so far!

Posted on: July 11th, 2006 by Yolanda Sprinkle

The good: The blue is great and really makes the phone look clean and very sharp. It feels sturdy, like it is going to last and not fall apart after one accidental drop! The menu was friendly and easy to learn along with the camera functions. Both the internal and external displays are clear and bright. Love the Bluetooth and won't buy another phone without it again! Like most new phones the battery has been great for the first few days that I have been using it, so let's hope it will stay that way. The bad: I can't speak of any yet. Summary: After a few days I have been impressed with the Katana. This is my first Sanyo and I am happy to say that so far I can't really think of anything that I would change.
