Sanyo is Garbage

This is the worst phone i have ever used. Every sanyo phone i have ever used is garbage but this is by far the worst of them all. Its awful and i really dont feel like going into detail because everything about this phone is bad from the design to the colors to the menu style, etc. The only pro to this phone is that it is some what durable. It can be dropped and it still works like a p.o.s.

I have owned many Sanyo products and one previous Sanyo cellphone. The previous Sanyo I owned lasted 2 1/2 years (the SCP-5500) and would have lasted much longer if I hadn't gone out and gotten the 8400. 3-D graphics run smooth and Sprint TV offered by Sprints Power Vision is amazing as well. The broadband-like connection has little buffer time and any audio playback coming through the speaker sounds very clear. I haven't had to turn any of the volumes up past half-way and it is plenty loud. My father got the same phone and it has enlarged fonts that are very clear and easy to set up, not to mention the main LCD display is crystal clear. The mini LCD, though still not perfected, is one of the best i've seen.

Design: 5
It is a compact (slightly smaller than my old 5500 which was compact to begin with) and stylish cellphone, very modern. The buttons feel good to press, very reactive. The all around design (from faceplate switching to the tiniest details in how the camera is slightly inbedded to prevent scratching) is amazing, I don't like fragile feeling phones and this one definately feels solid.

Features: 5
This has everything from audio, video, broadband-like web speeds and awesome graphic interface. Ready-link, though i don't use it (but have in the past), is a great feature on phones. Bluetooth supported. The MicroSD card (so small its about the size of a pinky nail) slides into the side of the phone for additional data storage of anykind. Hooks up via USB...
