Sanyo MM-8300 or Samsung MM-A880?


Jul 11, 2005, 11:11 PM
I am going to get one of these two phones. Any suggestion which is better? I like the MM-8300 30 sec video, ready link, and lighter weight. I like the A880's 256k color (compared to 65k) , video screen saver, and Pictbridge capablites.
Does anyone know what the difference is between a VGA digital camera and a megapixel digital camera is? Any other pros and cons?

VGA is only 640 x 480 resolution. Mega pixel is usually around 1024 x 680.

Personally, I like the pictbridge capability of printing out photos without using a computer.

The Sanyo is probably going to give you better call quality and reception... and be more reliable in the long run...

The Samsung excells in both categories, so so much for that moot point

It also excels at being a nice, fluffy lavender. I don't think there's a guy on the planet who wouldn't choose the Sanyo MM-8300 based on that alone. The a880 will be a big hit with the female crowd, though. Then again you've got pink/purple faceplates with the 8300, too. Hmm..

Hey Cream I'd wait before buying the A880!! The megapixel cam. is far better than the VGA but for the phone I'm not too pleased with it!! I bought mine online as soon as it popped up on the Sprint site, I wanna return it but I don't wanna put up with the hassle of waiting for the return kit then getting credit for it, yadda-yadda-yadda...check in to the 8300 before you decide...

I got the 8300 and am very happy with it. The only thing I don't like is only 9 speed dials. My old N400 could have at least 200. If the cam was only mega pix it would be great!

Hands down, Sanyo!! Not just the 8300... if you can pony up a little extra for something like the MM5600, you will not regret it. Everything you could want besides Blue tooth. NO SAMSUNG!!
