Way too expensive for what it offers
In the end there are simply better options than the Sanyo Zio. It doesn't do anything extremely well with the exception of the phone and there are some glaring issues that make the phone forgettable. First and foremost is the unresponsive display, which makes using the all touch Zio a frustrating experience. If it weren't for that we could probably overlook the lack of multitouch, the so-so camera performance or the heavy use of plastic on the Zio, but we can't.
Attractive and affordable Android smartphone
We really like the Sanyo Zio's looks, light weight and high resolution, crisp display. Sprint ID drags the phone down unfortunately, and we suggest that you play with the ID packs if you like, then hard reset the phone to erase all the junk those packs leave behind, and settle on just one. The main Sprint ID pack will get you all the Sprint apps without much added bloat. The Zio has good call quality, though reception and data speeds aren't impressive.
Unique and sturdy design
The Sanyo Zio is a great entry-level device that offers both the basic functions of a mobile phone and high end features seen in more expensive phone models. The Zio features a unique and sturdy design, usable features, relatable user interface and extra additions and downloads which make it a worthy device. It transitions from a basic cellular phone to a high end device and costs $39.99 at www.letstalk.com with a 2 year contract.
