Sanyo Taho (Sprint)


Sprint's Sanyo Taho is rugged enough to survive being run over by a car, but it lacks push-to-talk.

Extra-rugged design. Loud speakerphone. Can be run over by a car several times.

Poor reception. No push-to-talk.

Rugged Testing and Conclusions Since this is a rugged phone, I did some "rugged" testing. First, I ran the phone under a faucet for over a minute, with the handset flipped open and turned on. I made sure to get water everywhere. Next, I brought it...

Sanyo Taho (Sprint) review: Sanyo Taho (Sprint)


Sanyo is no stranger to rugged phones, so we weren't surprised when it announced its durable Taho for Sprint . We're still unsure exactly how to pronounce it--is it Tay-ho or Tah-ho?--but the handset offers a serviceable feature set in a design that...

The Sanyo Taho has a durable design and easy-to-use controls. The feature set is functional, and call quality was mostly satisfying.

The Sanyo Taho has a 2.5mm headset jack. Voice quality was distorted at the higher volume levels, and the speakerphone wasn't the best.

The Sanyo Taho gets big points for its rugged and simple design. Voice quality had a few issues, but it should be agreeable for most people.

Sanyo Taho Review by Sydney


When Sprint acquired Nextel, the company inherited a long line of rugged devices. Just recently, however, Sprint partnered with Sanyo and decided to release their own rugged device, the Sanyo Taho

Rugged device; 2 megapixel camera with flash; large buttons for easy pressing

Not as durable as expected; poor battery performance; no Direct Connect feature that is available on most Sprint/Nextel rugged phones

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...

Review: Sanyo Taho


Sanyo kicks out a ruggedized flip phone for Sprint in the Taho. It boasts mil-spec toughness, but entry-level features. Find out if this is the phone for you in Phone Scoop's full review.

Sanyo Taho Review | PhoneDog


The Taho is a new rugged device for Sprint. It meets military standards and is water, dust, shock, and wind resistant. Not only that, but it also sports a 2 megapixel camera with a flash. In testing, it wasn't as durable as other rugged phones we've...

This phone is very SENSITIVE! You must be very careful with the direct connect button when taking it out of your pocket or purse. Other wise the phone is very durable and the functions are okay.

Only had phone a few days but so far I'm pleased. Sound quality better than some people advertised. My only complaint is that its bigger than I expected, I'm not a texter. I have a computer for email and surfing the web so all in all I'm pleased and I...

Sound quality is horrible on direct connect. Cannot understand other callers and they cannot understand me. Phone sound is ok, nothing exceptional.

I am 100% dissatisfied with the product and service rendered by and Sprint. I should not have ordered on line as I did not have the chance to visually review the products. I sent the first phone, Samsung Trender, back at a shipping cost...

This phone is pretty solid. I just wish a few things were different like not having to pull up the symbols menu just to use a punctuation mark; that should have been programmed into the '1' button. Overall, I have no complaints about this phone right...
