The Good The Sanyo M1 is a feature-packed multimedia phone with a 2-megapixel camera, EV-DO support, ReadyLink (Sprint's push-to-talk service), a music player, stereo speakers, access to Power Vision content such as streaming audio and video, and an astounding 1GB of internal memory. Audio quality is good as well.
The Bad The Sanyo M1 is a boxy and clunky handset. It can be hard to view the screen in bright daylight, and pictures taken with the phone's camera can be a little murky.
The Bottom Line The Sanyo M1 is a multimedia-powerhouse cell phone from Sprint. It won't win any design awards, but its solid feature set and 1GB of internal memory make this an excellent handset for media junkies.

What's more, its boxy and chunky appearance won't win any design accolades, and its glossy black exterior was a little too fingerprint-prone to our tastes. And despite the bulk, the M1 also feels a little cheap and plastic in the hand, almost like a walkie-talkie rather than a phone. That said, we found it comfortable enough to hold and to cradle next to our ears.
