FIRST THREAD!!! WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS PHONE?
Sorry, but this device is total garbage.
Last I checked, Samsung didn't offer a voice-only handset nowadays.
I think you are bluffing.
I use the Mid level phones personaly so I may not buy one, however I think it is great competition for the Samsung A660 and the LG(latest garbage) 125
Now the people who are not ballen' will get to have a good phone too
first point, it is an entry level phone. ie for people who only want to make calls.
second peoint. it is a sanyo. sanyo has established it self as the industries best manufacturer hands down. no other manufacturer has the same high level of cosistant quality as sanyo others make some great models bot they also make some crap.
third point take all od the fancy features off of the 8200 and you litterally have the 200 why do you think it is called the 200?
for grandma or grandpa that want a good quality phone that just makes calls and will last forever. this phone is exactly what they want.
Overall impressions of this phone: it feels very cheap and weak, as if one small drop onto a kitchen counter would shatter the phone. the tiny screen may be too small for elderly eyes to read, but I haven't heard any complaints just yet. The option...
Pros: EXCELLENT reception. My desk is a Sprint dead spot with the (former) Samsung A460 AND a Sanyo RL-7300. I can actually talk (if I don't move my head) using the SCP-200
Battery life so far has been very good, going on 3 days without charging up yet.
Sound quality is OK, the Samsung was better.
Feels more rugged than the Samsung a460 was. nOt as rugged as the RL-7300
I would recommend this for those that want a basic phone that has good signal strength. If you want games or other features, look for another model.
Good basic phone.
