The pictures are so nice it is hard to believe they came from a phone.
I would keep the Sanyo M1 in a heartbeat. Not everything is perfect about it but basics are good: sound quality, speakerphone and other strong features make it a no-brainer choice for average to almost-power-users. Pros Cons The Sanyo M1 was meant for multimedia use: 2-megapixel camera with auto-focus, 1GB of built-in memory with USB Mass Storage profile (you can connect it to your computer and add or remove files to it just like with a memory card), external music controls and a strong...
sound good, clean and accurate
The Sanyo M1 may not be as flashy or thin as, say, the Motorola or the Samsung , and your friends won't crowd around when you take it our of your pocket. But what it lacks in style it makes up for in substance. The phone handles audio very well, video better than most, and, most importantly, boasts excellent call quality.
Sanyo’s M1 (available from Sprint for $199.99 USD with the usual rebates and contract restrictions) is a superior cell phone.
Sanyo’s M1 (available from Sprint for $199.99 USD with the usual rebates and contract restrictions) is a superior cell phone. It’s light, it’s relatively compact, it delivers plenty of volume for voice and ring tones, and it gets great reception. Its 2 MP camera takes surprisingly blur-free pictures, and it has a bright LCD screen that displays the numbers you’re calling in such a large font that even the thickest Coke-bottle glasses wearer will be able to see.
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.
Aperture priority mode.
The Samsung TL500 has some drool-worthy specs and shoots great photos, but it stumbles on usability and video quality. The 8X-optical-zoom M580 serves up great exposure quality and easy controls, at the expense of manual settings. It's a versatile camera for the price, but it falls short on exciting extras. The DSC-W370 has a great zoom range and a lot of extras for a point-and-shoot that costs about $200, but the lag time between actions is a major drag.
