  • Durable and water resistant, the Kyocera DuraXV is one of the most capable feature phones available.


  • The Sanyo M1 is a multimedia-powerhouse cell phone from Sprint. It won't win any design awards, but its solid feature set and 1GB of internal memory make this an excellent handset for media junkies.

    - Physically, the blocky Sanyo M1 is rather short in length for a clamshell styled device, with a measurement of 91mm (3.6").
    - The device's bright 2" QVGA (320x240 pixel) resolution display, capable of showing up to 262k colors, resides here and takes up almost all of the space on the top half of the flip.
    - The d-pad is fairly small but accurate.
    - The device ships with a USB cable to allow for easy music transfers, and can also be recharged from here.


  • Sanyo's M1 is currently the ultimate multimedia phone for Sprint.


  • The Samsung Knack SCH-U310 is one of the best basic phones on the market. If you need a handset for making calls, you can't go wrong.


  • The Samsung Knack SCH-U310 is an easy-to-use phone for those who simply want to make calls.

    While German says the Knack "won't win any beauty contests," its size and design excel at being user-friendly. A compact 3.8 inches by 2 inches by 0.7 inches and weighing 3.6 ounces, it hosts a small monochrome exterior display that displays the time and caller ID. Flip it open and the Knack presents a generous backlit keypad with large keys and vivid 2.2-inch diagonal, 220-by-176-pixel display. A huge selling point for many is the streamlined six-entry menu, which makes navigation a snap.


  • The Motorola VU204 is an easy-to-use cell phone with a simple design and good call quality. It offers a few extra features, as well.


  • The Motorola VU204 is a very good voice phone, if you can get past its squishy, toylike design.


  • The Motorola VU-204 is targeted at those who want a taste of all the standard features of a well-to-do smartphone, but cannot afford the intricacies involved. Engulfing every such feature in its chubby body, the Motorola VU204 is sure to appeal to entry-level users. So, if you can deal with the slow response of the Bluetooth and afford to handle the battery cover every now and then, then a sum of $29.99 isnâ??t too big.


  • Certified to withstand the elements, the Samsung Convoy 2 is also a ruggedly attractive handset with a fair number of creature comforts; however, the headset jack is a disappointment and there are more rough-and-tumble phones out there.


  • The Samsung Convoy 2 is a significant improvement over its predecessor, and now a solid contender for a work-minded flip phone with push-to-talk capability on Verizon.


  • Overall, consider the Convoy only if you need a phone for a rugged work environment. The lack of fast Internet in this day and age severely cripples any usefulness. The PTT is nice, and saves you money without making calls over the network, but then again so does VoIP.
