Quite enjoyable in terms of aesthetic features

from MobileBurn

The inside of the Eclipse X features a large keypad with with rectangular keys that seemed a bit stiff during use. The phone offers dedicated back, speaker, and camera buttons, but it should be noted that none of the keys located around the d-pad cluster can be read in the dark, even when the backlight is on. That makes the phone a bit harder for novices to use when the lights go down...

In terms of call audio, the Eclipse seemed a bit muddled during our test calls and wasn't as clear as we had hoped. The speakerphone, on the other hand, provided us with audio that was easily as good as we heard on non-speakerphone calls. 3G browsing data rates on the Eclipse X were fairly slow, typically coming in at about 350Kbps. But the Eclipse's browser performed poorly not only in speed, but also did not format sites correctly, even many mobile specific sites.

Overall we found Sprint's Katana Eclipse X quite enjoyable in terms of aesthetic features, like the ultra cool lighting effects and quick access to media related functions. But under its hood, the Eclipse seemed to fall short of the mark.

The Katana Eclipse X is a great phone for a flip phone. There are many features included in the phone, but the one that no one overlooks is the Illumination effects. They are a great feature to be in a phone. And the best part is that they are exclusive to the Katana Eclipse X. This phone isn't junk at all. I paid $100.00 for mine and although I've only had it for a few weeks, it was worth every penny. Less

Katana Eclispe

My Katana DLX was dropped and broke so I went to Sprint and got the Katana Eclispe in hopes of replacing my broken phone. This phone is junk. I took it back to Sprint and got my money back. I would not recommend it to anyone. I went on Ebay and bid and won a Katana DLX, which is the best phone I have ever owned so far.
