"Best Phone I've Owned"3.5 starson by smoo93
Pros: The Sanyo Taho is a very rugged phone. Between my construction work and my outdoor lifestyle (climbing, cycling, kayaking, etc.), this phone has taken it's fair share of beatings, but continues to live another day. It's been put up to sand, heat, drops,
Cons: The phone is pretty bulky compared to the average cell phone, but that is a small tradeoff for the durability. Call quality could be a lot better, as well as the speaker phone clarity. There is a very short (almost unnoticeable) delay when pressing the
Summary: I had the option of purchasing a smart phone over this phone when my contract came up for renewal, and I'm glad I got this one. I've fallen into rivers with it, dropped it onto brick and gravel from 10'+ high, and talked on it in the pouring rain, and it's been fine. Though the call quality suffers, that doesn't bother me nearly as much as the key delay when texting. I use texting a lot for work and for personal purposes, and having to text slower to make sure my message isn't garbled is very annoying. If you have the opportunity, I suggest you try it out at the store and see if you can deal with this problem. I have been able to get past it and now have a phone that has, and will continue to, last through almost every challenge I put it up to.
Overall, a fantastic purchase and absolutely worth it.
