The Sanyo Zio isn't the fanciest Android phone, but it's an ideal beginner smartphone for Cricket customers. It's easy to use and its feature set offers the essentials, though we don't like that it runs Android OS 1.6.

Sanyo Zio

The Zio has a standard candy bar design with a 3.5-inch touch screen. It's not flashy, but it works.

The Zio's menu design is no different from other Android handsets running OS 1.6. Below are four touch controls, the navigation trackball, and the calling buttons.
