Sanyo SCP-2700 Review

Sanyo SCP-2700 6

Performance and Conclusion

Call quality was decent, and battery life is rated at a respectable 4.8 hours.  Callers said we sounded a bit distant, rating us at a 7 out of 10.  On our end they sounded pretty loud and clear, and while it wasn’t perfect we had no real gripes.

Overall we feel the Sanyo SCP-2700 is a solid, basic phone.  The call quality is good, the keyboard is better than it feels and the price could be lower, but not much.  Still, we think Sanyo could have done a few things, such as add a microSD slot, to win some market share.  With the Rumor 2 currently priced at the same price as the better spec’d Rant we can’t help but feel that price will soon drop, and when compared to the SCP-2700 we just don’t see why someone would pick up the Sanyo SCP-2700.  It’s a decent offering, but doesn’t offer anything in the way of differentiation and its cheap materials don’t give a good first impression.

This phone felt like a toy calculator. The material was like cheap plastic. The screen is tiny, the buttons are tiny, and the handset is thick. I "accidentally" dropped my laptop in this and good thing. Cheap phone, but at least it works and the battery life was obviously not bad.
