Our video review of Sprint's latest 2 Megapixel auto-focus cameraphone.

Although it's been out for a month, Sprint only officially announced the Sanyo M1 yesterday. What excellent timing as we were putting the finishing touches on our review. Don't let the boxy shape and flat, spongy keypad turn you off. Once you turn the M1 on, you'll be impressed. In addition to the features we demonstrate in the video, the M1 also has excellent signal strength and 3-4 day battery life.
You can watch the video here:
Motorola's newest flagship phone ticks all the standard boxes for a high-end phone, but it also has one totally unique feature: a wide-angle camera with a full 50 megapixel resolution, the same as the main camera. The selfie camera has a similarly unheard-of resolution at 60 megapixel.
There have been a number of "smartwatches" for kids in recent years. They all have GPS and let you keep tabs on your kid's location, and offer some limited forms of communication.

A really important segment of the mobile market is devices for young kids. Mobile technology provides communication and safety features that feel essential, but how young is too young for a phone?

JBL's new Tour PRO 2 true wireless earbuds feature "the world's first smart charging case". The case has a 1.45-inch touch screen that lets users easily and intuitively control features like ANC and ambient sound that would normally require opening a dedicated app on your phone or remembering a complex set of touch gestures.
Every day is a new day with the M1 by Sanyo
I have been trying to get a 3gp movie on to the phone and after days of frustation have given up
I am able to transfer pictures back and fourth with little effort but half way through a movie transfer to the phone I get an error
when I plug in the phone to the PC the phone ask me to pic from three options, MASS STORAGE being the seconed option, so I pick it.......
I then transfer the .3gp converted movie to the playlist" folder sometimes I get an error I/O port error............sometimes it works........very unpredictable.
Also I have to reboot my computer sometimes just to get the phone to get reconized
Running All Intel,Gforce 7550,supertalant ram, and fresh install of Wi...
Well ...I fixed my own problem
It seems that when I use the Front USB on the front of my PC I get weard issues so I tried using the back USB and ever since then No More Problems.............
THIS PHONE ROCKS
I am using WinAVI to convert...
I noticed you called one of the side buttons a voice recorder, and one a voice command.
The voice recorder is actually the ReadyLink key. The RL key turns into a voice recorder when RL is disabled in the menus. Should've mentioned this.
This is actually one of the first truely feature rich ReadyLink phones Sprint has ever offered.
It is actually a kick ass phone. Good review otherwise.
Video Review is a total letdown.
Mr. Lin (the reviewer) never mentions that the media player quality is easily adjustible through an equalizer and volume is very good. Plus, it seems to be no big deal that this is only the second phone for Sprint (that I'm aware of) that provides stereo bluetooth music play.
Plus it's really nice to have a phone where the front media buttons are flush with the casing as to prevent accidental pressing in your pocket (see the Sa...
Sprint's 3rd attempt; not second
This is the third phone from Sprint to offer 2MPs and autofocus.
the a800 was a thick phone, but the stupid thing was it was a high end phone but no bluetooth. how coul...
good review but off topic
could have showed the live tv in landscape mode and would have been an actual review, but sorry its not in verizon or cingular so we can highly say stuff is great on thier network even if its clips
Correction On Sanyo M1 Video
Yes, this phone is the absolute best phone Sprint has released yet.
When using the Sprint Music player, you CAN use stereo bluetooth headphones. I have the Motorola HS850's, and they work wonderfully, playing my downloaded and purchased music. I noticed that in the video, it was stated you can only do so in the media player.
Well... I will give you this:
You were absolutlely right about everything else in the video review. Whew. What a phone, and so few faults!
It only has bluetooth 1.1, it has a small 2" QVGA, a clumbsy keypad, no transflash slot, and the front media controls lag a lot of the time. There is no "best phone".
Correction on Two Media Players
What an awesome phone
