Review: Sanyo SCP-2700
For what it is, the 2700 covers the basics of messaging and phone functionalities well. Its target customer -- pre-teens, Tweens, young teens -- will be happy with how easily they can keep in touch with t heir posse via SMS, IM and emails. They'll also appreciate the smaller size of the phone and the relatively good looks. What they may miss, however, is a lack of good social networking services, such as Facebook or MySpace.
People looking for even slightly more advanced features, such as a music player, video capture and 3G web browsing, will be sorely disappointed, as none of them are present.
The people most likely to buy this phone (or have it bought for them) will appreciate its virtues, and probably won't miss what it doesn't have. It's a good first phone for the kid who wants to reach out and message someone. Seasoned users may find it a bit too simplistic.
