Best phone ever
I love this phone, I would take it over an I-phone any-day, It is a little smaller and the sound is better!! The screen is easier to read too!!

I would spend more money and get a better quality phone.
I would highly recommend buying a different phone. I ordered one it was brand new apparently with bad software and couldnt even use it. The phone was really cheap with a plastic screen. More likely to get a whole of scratches and very easily. Just a cheap junk phone you would give your 6 year old to play with and have fun with. I would not use this phone if Sprint paid my bill every month and thats $159 a month. No thanks but I will pay that and use a better phone. Please check out other options and spend the extra money cause if you dont youll be sorry. I hope my rambling on helped at least one person with not making a poor decision. Take care god bless.
PS: dont get an Iphone either....galaxy 3 or 4 I would go with

Better value exists elsewhere
Alright, let me just start of by telling you that my primary Android device is an HTC One X, a top-end smartphone; so I'm kind of spoiled when it comes to these type of devices. The Sanyo Zio is as entry level as you can get for an Android phone. Personally, I believe that better value can be found elsewhere for maybe a little more, but if you only have around $20-30, this is an okay device.
-pretty simple to use
-decent battery life
-comes with a dedicated battery life
-speaker is pretty good
-not a lot of bloatware
-probably one of the slowest, and most laggy
Androids out there
-comes equipped with a stripped down version of Android 2.2 (instead of the Google Play Store, it has the Android Market)
-the keyboard that comes with the phone absolutely sucks, I really cannot express how bad the stock keyboard is
-the screen is not very responsive
-the camera zoom is horrible
-no multi-touch features within the phone
-the software isn't very intuitive (i.e. to uninstall applications you have to go to the android market, and then go to your downloads before being able to uninstall applications; in most Android devices in my experience, uninstalling unneeded apps are much easier)
-an absolute pain to connect to your computer; I still haven't found way to connect it to my computer, but I do know for a fact there is a way
I really don't recommend this device if you don't want a stroke or a heart attack within the next year. I guarantee you that better value exists elsewhere, and I would actually prefer some high-end messaging phones over the Sanyo Zio.Read full review

Great cell phone, excellent price and features.
The Sanyo Zio is an excellent cell phone and easy to use. I have absolutely no problems of any kind with this phone. If I could find another for the same price I paid for this one I would buy it immediately.

GREAT value Android phone for BASIC/ENTRY level use, only!
I bought this phone because I was looking for a cheap replacement phone, but was pleasantly surprised of the VALUE this phone carries with it!
The phone can be a little hit and miss when it comes to multitasking and this drains the battery very quickly, however, for light to moderate use throughout the day, you can't go wrong with the Zio.
The battery life with light texting, a few 5 minute phone calls and a few minutes, here and there of internet use will get me around 7-9 hours on a charge. If you use the internet heavily (ie. Facebook, Youtube, Google Maps, etc) constantly, your battery might not last you 2 hours. Standby time is generally good for an entire day or two, if you keep it in standby.
Note: When you are in Roaming on this phone, the battery drains more than twice as fast!
This phone comes with the basic feature you will find with just about any other Android 2.2 phone. The phone has less on board memory than a lot of other phones out there now, so if you are looking to download and run a lot of apps, this phone will quickly fill up and slow down...
The keyboard is great for small to medium fingers, but if you have fat ones like myself, you will find it quite a humorous challenge!
If this is your first time using an android phone, try this one out!! If you want speed, tons of space for apps and need a larger keyboard...look elsewhere.Read full review
