RATING
Based on 5 reviews

The Sanyo Taho is a rugged, basic clamshell featuring a 2-inch, 240 x 320 pixel resolution internal display and an external, 1-inch 96 x 64 pixel display.

The Taho is designed to meet military performance specifications, which means it is able to perform in adverse conditions due to dust, shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, and blowing rain.

For customers who need a phone that can withstand such conditions, the Taho is worth a look. In addition to its tough exterior, the Sanyo Taho offers a 2MP camera with video record and a variety of modifiable camera features, GPS, Bluetooth for hands-free interaction, and a full suite of basic phone features including calendar, alarms, etc.

Rounding out the feature set is data tethering, MP3 player, a WAP internet browser, speakerphone and a 2.5 headset jack. With a talk time rated at up to 6.1 hours, the Sanyo Taho is a tough and rugged phone that will keep you connected when conditions turn ugly.

PhoneDog

Durable but everything else disappoints

from PhoneDog
After testing out the Sanyo Taho, I'm somewhat disappointed by the features and performance. It wasn't quite as durable as I would have expected and I wish it had more features for those who are outdoors than what it ships with, perhaps a compass or pedometer. Battery performance was also disappointing. If you aren't planning on being too terribly rough with your phone, then the Taho should be fine... Full review

A tough phone that gets the job done in other ways as well

from PhoneArena
The Sanyo Taho by Kyocera is one tough phone, but it gets the job done in other ways as well. Good call quality and battery life make the Taho attractive to the average user, while some nifty enterprise tools make the Taho a good choice for businesses. This phone isn’t going to sell a ton, but if you’re in the market for a good, durable phone and don’t care too much about messaging, web and similar features, the Taho is certainly worth a serious look...

Phone Scoop

The durable phone that makes good voice calls and does little else

from Phone Scoop

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 o... Full review

Pro: A cool rugidized phone that does not require a data plan. Con: Can hardly see the display in bright sun even with the brightness set to maximum. Phone will shut down on its own. Needs at least a 4 megapixel camera. Using experience: 60 days There is a problem with this phone where it will shut down and the only way to get it to power on again is to momentarily remove the battery. I returned the first phone thinking that this was just a problem with that particular unit however the second phone does the same thing. I emailed Kyocera and they replied that they are aware of the "power cycling problem" and are investigating but no other info was given. I followed up on this email a month later but they have not replied. I would not purchase this phone until Kyocera fixes this problem. Less

Pro: Nice look, compact and many features Con: Not reliable enough for my needs. Using experience: 48 days Just returned my Taho and re-instated my previous phone. The Taho would freeze or go black time after time, even after bringing it in for "repair". The only solution was to remove the battery, put it back and turn the phone back on. Sometimes it work work without fail for a few days, then if you use data, text or navigation the problem would return. Less
