I have owned a lot of phones the past 4 years and this is the best phone ever. I even like this phone better than the Treo 600. The Sanyo 5500/VM4500 has the loudest speakerphone that I have ever heard (including Nextel phones), the camera is an extremely good quality and the video camera is just as good. The web browser is a lot faster than previous phones and the download time for applications, games, ringtones, etc. is amazing. The menu is extremely easy to navigate and very easy to pick up on. I have the phone for a week and this is the first time I've put it down long enough to write this review. Even for this price of $379.99, this phone is still the best out there and looks to be ahead of the pack for a long time to come.
