This Sanyo 8100 review is based on a technical analysis of the cell phone's technical specifications, it is not based on an actual hands-on review. It outlines the pros and cons of the Sanyo 8100. The strongest points are listed with a (+) sign while the weakest points have a (-) sign before them. This Sanyo 8100 analysis is generated automatically based on our specifications for that phone and considering that manufacturers do not always detail technical specifications clearly, some information may be missing.
(+) Weight and Size: The Sanyo 8100 weighs only 3.88 oz. This is rather lighter than many ther phones and should make this phone comfortable to carry around(+) Camera: It has a camera , which is not a necessary feature yet may be useful and enhance your cellular experience.

(View the latest cell phones with a built-in speakerphone)(-) Battery Performance: It has only a maximum rated standby time of 257 hours and a talk time of 160 minutes, and it may be too low for your needs, especially if you travel a lot and plan to use your cell phone often(+) Color Display: The color display's color mode is unknown and its resolution is unknown. A color display helps for browsing the wireless web or viewing pictures and, of course, the larger it is, the better the experience and, the more colors, the better your pictures will look.(-) Analog Roaming: It doesn't support analog roaming. Analog is the older North-American cellular technology, however North-American networks are increasingly converting to large digital-only networks, which makes analog a not-so-useful feature (check coverage maps for your area to discriminate on that aspect).(-) Bluetooth: It is not Bluetooth-enabled. Bluetooth is not really necessary but may be handy if you want to use a wireless headset or exchange data with your (Bluetooth-enabled) laptop, for instance.(-) Infrared: It doesn't feature an infrared port. Infrared is convenient, especially if you own a laptop (most laptops are infrared equipped), you can then use your computer to transfer contacts, ringtones or pictures (if the phone supports these functions) to the Sanyo 8100.(+) Voice Note: It includes voice notes . A voice note system is quite useful to make quick notes and reminders while on the road.(+) Free Custom Ringtones: . It seems to support ringtone customization in a do-it-yourself manner, but we recommend double-checking. To help assess this phone's behavior with ringtones, check out the ringtone compatibility list.
