Sanyo Katana II Review
0. phoneArena 27 Aug 2007, 03:10 posted on
The Katana-II is a modest upgrade from the original Katana model, with a change in styling being the main difference. Since this device’s primary function is as a cell phone, we are please that the reception and call quality was top-notch, with no audible static or interference. The phone is constructed well and should hold up to everyday use. The external display is smaller than we would have liked, but the quality of the internal display more than makes up for it. Overall, we are pleased with the Katana-II and feel that its current entry-level price is well worth it, but if you are interested in having more features, then you need to step-up to the DLX.

I think the ratings were a little harsh. This is a very good phone. Sound is loud and clear - Sprint is known for clear calls. Very strong reception - it is a Sanyo afterall... Nice build quality. Clear screen. Battery could last a tad longer, but not a big deal.

I actually don't mind the design of this phone, it's pretty decent and simple. The construction felt sturdy and calling was no problem. Dropped it many times on concrete, but only made a few scratches. I didn't really do anything except call on this phone, so overall I liked it. Later on my family member dropped it in the toilet and it was a goner. Oh well.
