Sanyo VI-2300 review

Sanyo VI-2300

Posted: , by PhoneArena Team




The incoming sound quality was overall good, with the exemption that the speaker cuts off some of the higher frequencies and the voices sound very deep. On the other hand, both the speakerphone and the ear-speaker are exceptionally loud and most of the time I had to turn them down to about 30%. This of course is not a bad thing – I just hate to be on a busy street and not be able to turn my volume a little bit higher.

The phone is rated for about 3.25 hours of talk time and it easily meats that, but I only did about 7 days of stand-by instead of the rated 13 days.


Currently priced at only 29.99 ($189.99 - $160 instant savings with 2year contact), the phone is an excellent bargain for the casual user. It is not an advanced device with gazillion features, but offers all the necessary means to keep you connected. The user interface and menus are easy to learn and navigate. The phonebook is fully featured and offers Picture ID, voice dialing, and up to 500 contacts with multiple numbers per contact.
