Review: Sanyo Taho
The Taho's feature set is about as basic as it gets. Sanyo and Sprint are obviously aiming at a particular market segment with this device: those who need a durable phone that makes good voice calls and does little else.
The hardware is mostly good, though I wish the dialpad buttons were a little easier to differentiate. The menu system and feature set are as basic as it gets, with little in the way of extras that could make using the phone enjoyable. Making calls is a snap, as is pecking out text messages, but it's criminal that users have to search for and download email and IM clients from Sprint's crummy portal. Lacking even the most basic social networking features leaves this phone out of the modern era. It's a device straight from 2004.
There is no multimedia playback available on this device, and the camera and camcorder perform so badly, they are hardly worth using.

Would I recommend the Taho? Only to the outdoorsy types who use a phone for nothing but phone calls. Anyone else would be better served by one of Sprint's less-featureless flip phones.
