'having said as much, i do like this phone very much. i previously tried out the samsung a900 for 2 weeks and thought that the design of the samsung was missing two crucial elements: memory and battery life. sanyo got both right in m1, and more.'
'Sanyo uses that gigabyte as a springboard to give the phone as much multimedia juice as possible.'
'as today's phones are so slim and slender in comparison.'
'Don't get me wrong - at roughly twice the thickness of your standard "slim phone," this handset bulges noticeably in the pocket of all but the baggiest pants. '
'Our one big complaint about the phone: If you want to dial a number that's not in your address book, you have to open the screen first so that you can access the keyboard/dial pad, then close it again to use it as a phone--a really cumbersome setup.'
'We were actually quiet surprised with the Sidekick and its performance.'
