The Sanyo Pro 200, also known as the Pro 200s, is an all-business flip that delivers on performance and makes no effort to win prizes for boutique looks or cutting edge color schemes. This is a phone that will be appreciated for its durable construction, call quality and performance rather than design subtlety; clear access to obvious functions rather than cryptic sub-menus.
Closed, the Sanyo Pro 200 features an external, 1.5-inch monochrome display which provides date, time, battery life, signal strength and caller ID. Inside you will find a 1.9-inch color display that does a modest job of representing images and graphics, but is nothing to write home about.
A simple alpha-numeric key-pad with comfortable-sized keys make up the majority of the bottom-half of the phone, with a navigational array resting on top with a directional pad and dedicated black keys that allow for quick access to obvious and frequent functions.
One outstanding feature of the Sanyo Pro 200 is its Push-to-Talk, or 10-4, capability. This walkie-talkie feature allows users to communicate almost instantly with the push of a button, making it easy for businessmen, contractors and others to reach key people quickly. Sound quality is first rate and anyone can be a pro in a matter of minutes using this feature.
Pros: Durable phone, quality build materials, what it does it does very well, reliable, easy to use.
Cons: No frills, bare bones, but by design.
Verdict: The Sanyo Pro 200 is designed for busy people in the field who need to reach others quickly and easily. Simple menu structure makes anyone a pro in minutes. Great choice for small businesses on the go!
