It's a passable multimedia phone

from Wired (8 years ago)

Sanyo's newest weapon in the mobile phone wars has a decidedly old-fashioned design. Looks aside, it's a passable multimedia phone: The interface is efficient, and built-in GPS serves up turn-by-turn directions that beat static, collision-inducing Google Maps. Support for Sprint's TV and music servi... More


cool phone

from Phonedog (6 years ago)

Pro: the phone is cheap, and it gives a lot. MP3, videos etc. Con: the micro sd covers are made of rubber so the stretch when you open them a lot and become hard to close. Using experience: 1 years i really like this phone i sometimes go on you tube and watch videos or rush hour 2 straight from t... More


poor battery power

from Amazon (6 years ago)

Well, the battery power is bad. I had it for 1 months and only use it every once in awhile. I turn it off to charge and let it charge for days but it keeps dieing on me. *NO I'm not on analoge roam* I got this phone after the guy at the srpint store said it was 'illegal' for me to upgrade and he'...

Phone is awesome

from Amazon (6 years ago)

This phone does email, really nice photos, fun random apps, streams TV well. Fits well in your pocket and is nice and flat. I have dropped mine several times on concrete and it works just fine and takes an amazing amount of abuse. Standard bad things- if you are looking at the internet, of cours... More


Katana DLX

(6 years ago)

Best phone I have ever owned so far. Hate that Sprint quit offering it, because thier new Katana's can't hold a candle to this one.



from Amazon (7 years ago)

This is the second Katana I have purchased. The first one was the original. It was a wonderful phone but needing to chang plans I needed a new phone so the only choice was another Kat. This one is pretty in pink. Has much of the same stuff as the first. More colors and tones. Just as fun. Got... More


Katana Deluxe

from Yahoo (7 years ago)

Pro: I love this phone Con: I have no cons I have had several phones through Sprint and this has to be my favorite phone. It is easy to use and I can actually hear it ringing even when I have the ringer set low. The battery last for days before you have to charge the phone. I also like the bluetoo... More

I love this phone. It has everything I wanted on it. I get great reception. I have no complaints.Natalie from Ohio


phone is nice, sprint is not

from Amazon (7 years ago)

I recommend this phone. It works well and has some really nice features. However, I do not recommend Sprint. First, in addition to purchasing a package and phone from Amazon, Sprint charged me a $150 deposit. It's refundable, so I accepted it. However, in my area, Sprint coverage is very spotty... More


review is inaccurate, Telenav GPs doesn't support the katana dlx

from Amazon (7 years ago)

One if the primary reasons I bought the Katana DLX in September was the GPS feature touted in the amazon review (and others, all got it wrong). The Katana DLX is not compatible with current offerings of the Sprint Navigation powered by Telenav. In fact, The phone is conspicuously absent from the su... More
