Performance and Conclusion:

Callers were overall impressed with the Sanyo Taho, but said that we were a bit hollow. Otherwise voice reproduction was good and they rated us an 8/10. Callers were a bit harsh to us, but in general they were good as well and easy to hear. The Taho is rated at 6.1 hours of talk time, more than enough to get even heavy users through at least a full day.

The Sanyo Taho by Kyocera is one tough phone, but it gets the job done in other ways as well. Good call quality and battery life make the Taho attractive to the average user, while some nifty enterprise tools make the Taho a good choice for businesses. This phone isn’t going to sell a ton, but if you’re in the market for a good, durable phone and don’t care too much about messaging, web and similar features, the Taho is certainly worth a serious look.

Software version of the reviewed unit: 1.000SP
