Sanyo Katana LX Mobile Phone Review

Dimitar Dimitrov from PhoneArena provides us with a full review of the recently released Sanyo Katana LX mobile phone. The handset is actually a successor to the Katana II and latest addition to Sanyo’s Katana line. The Katana LX boasts a mirrored finish and hidden OLED outer display. Here is a conclusion.

We have mixed feelings about the Katana LX, mostly hinging on where it sits in tries to fit into the market. By entry level phone standards it is very good; the battery life is excellent, the design is compact and stylish and there are a few different color options. However, it is currently priced at $49.99 on contract, which puts it head-to-head with devices such as the text-friendly LG Rumor and the more capable Samsung M520, both of which we’d have a hard time passing up for the LX. We have a feeling that the LX will drop in price once the Sanyo 3200 is discontinued, which will make it an excellent value for what it offers.
