Sanyo SCP-3810

In the cell phone world, Sanyo always has been something of a wallflower. Though its phones have been consistently reliable, it's never produced a flood of models and all of its handsets have landed at Sprint Nextel. The newest model, the Sanyo SCP-3810, is no different. It has a solid design and decent performance, and like many previous Sanyo phones, it comes in two colors. If you need an easy-to-use phone that makes good calls, the SCP-3810 is a good buy. But if you want more multimedia and data features or a better speakerphone, then you should look elsewhere. The SCP-3810 is free with service and after a $50 mail-in rebate. You'll pay $249 for the full price.

Design
Though Kyocera now owns the Sanyo cell phone brand, the SCP-3810 stays close to its roots. With its boxy profile, sharp display, and simple navigation controls, it has all the hallmarks of a Sanyo phone. The SCP-3810 is relatively compact at 3.8 inches tall by 2 inches wide by 0.7 inch thick and weighs 3.9 ounces. You shouldn't have problem taking it on the go. You can get it in regal red or black onyx; we reviewed the former, but the features are the same on both models.
