Sanyo Incognito SCP-6760 ReviewSanyo Incognito SCP-6760 6
Sprint’s One Click UI, which we’ve seen on several devices at this point. We gave a full rundown when it debuted on the Rant, and still enjoy it very much. As far as carrier UIs go, this one is by far the best. MySpace and Facebook also have preloaded tiles, though they have been available to add on other One Click phones. The main menu has the familiar 12 icon layout that most Sprint phones feature at this point, nothing new to report.
Sanyo has beefed up the phonebook a bit from the Eclipse. It now allows for saving an address, as well as other semi-advanced features like a memo, URL, IM and email. Unfortunately the phonebook cannot be searched directly from the homescreen, like Samsung and LG devices allow. Nuance takes care of voice dialing.
Other features remain standard as well. The user is given a basic personal calendar, and exchange calendars are supported by the Sprint Mobile Email program. The latter feature is very cool, but we just don’t see many people who have an Exchange account using a phone like the Incognito. Other basic amenities include an alarm, calculator, world clock, memo pad and voice memos.
Messaging and Multimedia:
Again, everything is pretty much the same here. Text messaging is threaded so the user sees conversations in their inbox, not messages. The included IM client supports AIM, Yahoo and Windows Live Messenger. Sprint Mobile Email is one of the better email clients we’ve seen for basic phones. It supports most everything you can throw at it, including Exchange, but unfortunately uses POP instead of IMAP.
As an EVDO phone the Incognito features all of Sprint’s multimedia offerings; Sprint TV, Radio and Music Store. With support of 32GB microSD cards it acts as a decent on the go mp3 player, though we don’t think it will be replacing many iPods.
The 2 megapixel camera was very ordinary. Pictures were bland and colors muted, detail was fine but not great and there was some slight blurring. This is to be expected from a mid-range phone, although the Samsung Exclaim and Reclaim offer much better image quality at similar price-points. The camera can only be activated with the flip opened, and as we brought up earlier your right index finger covers the camera lens when holding the phone naturally.

Ok i am sorry i have owned the reclaim and its camera is not any better, as for the keys on the keyboard the recaim was vety uncomfortable this has one of the best keyboards i personally have used. As for saying the reclaim has any thing on this phone... that is a laugh!!!!

yeah other sites like cnet and phonescoop are saying that the keyboard is great but i guess its more of a personal preference type thing... but i do agree that most people will buy it for the form factor (almost got me as well but decided to go palm pre). Its okay in my opinion but not worth having for 2 years. maybe as a back up phone... definitely an env knockoff.
