Interface:

Like the Incognito and many other phones before it the Sanyo Innuendo runs Sprint’s One Click UI.  We gave a full rundown when it debuted on the Rant, and still think it’s the best featurephone UI on the market.  It blends elements of social networking, such as Facebook and Twitter, with entertainment, news and sports to deliver a personalized user experience.  The main menu has the familiar 12 icon layout that most Sprint phones feature at this point, nothing new to report.


The phonebook is relatively robust for a featurephone, offering storage for several numbers and emails as well as advanced features like birthdays, addresses, job titles and company.  It’s no smartphone, but it will get the job done and then some for the average user.  Nuance’s excellent voice recognition software handles the 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 Sanyo Innuendo 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 Innuendo sports a 3.2 megapixel camera, up from the 2MP shooter of the Incognito.  Results are mixed: in good lighting the Innuendo was able to produce passable shots, but once the light dimmed images became vary grainy.  Colors were almost too saturated at times, but detail was very good.  The video camera is capable of recording at QVGA resolution and was barely passable for YouTube.
