Sanyo SCP-6760 Incognito (Sprint)

>> Monday, December 7, 2009

Sanyo SCP-6760 Incognito (Sprint) takes a cue from a few other cell phones before it. We've seen its horizontal flip design on handsets like the LG enV Touch, but this is the first time it's been on a Sanyo phone. The sturdy handset measures 3.7 inches tall by 2.2 inches wide by 0.7 inch thick and is a tad heavy at 4.3 ounces. Its reflective skin catches the light and doubles as a mirror, though it also attracts smudges by the ton. The flap opens just short of 180 degrees, but you can view the internal display at a slight angle when holding the phone in your hands.

Also, we like that Sanyo SCP-6760 Incognito (Sprint) doesn't wobble when you rest it in a table in the open position. The face of the Incognito is more than just a shiny surface it's also a large alphanumeric touch pad and navigation array. It's invisible when the backlighting is off, but a flick of the small switch on the left spine will activate the controls that include a standard 12 digit keypad, a back key, the Talk and End buttons, four directional arrows, and a central OK button.

The keys need just a light press and a vibrating feedback lets you know that your touch has registered. The arrangement is quite spacious so you shouldn't have a problem pressing the wrong key. Though Sanyo SCP-6760 Incognito (Sprint)'s design is unique, it's not always easy to use. As you'd expect, the touch surface is slippery and you'll leave a visible fingerprint with every press. We'd also like more customization options as it is you can't change the backlighting time, the touch sensitivity, or the intensity of the vibrating feedback.

We also didn't like the tiny external display. Not only is it monochrome so it won't show photo caller ID, but also you can access only a few menu options. Though we admit that we'd rather use the internal display under most circumstances, we'd like to see some color here at the very least. On Sanyo SCP-6760 Incognito (Sprint)'s right spine you'll find the microSD card slot, Micro-USB charger port, a voice dialing control, and the volume rocker. The latter is a bit small and located too close to the bottom of the phone.

The camera lens sits on the rear side next to a speaker. Sanyo SCP-6760 Incognito (Sprint) doesn't allow for self portraits. On the bottom of the device is the 2.5 mm headset jack; we'd prefer a 3.5 mm jack on a music phone. The internal display measures 2.6 inches and supports 262.000 colors (320x240 pixels). It's bright and vibrant with sharp colors and graphics and the menu interface is easy to use.

As on similar phones the display has a landscape orientation for easier messaging. Sprint also adds its own spin with the carrier's OneClick interface, which offers customizable shortcuts to favorite features. You can change the display brightness and backlighting time. Users with visual impairments should note that the font size on both displays can be quite small.


sanyo incognito review January 14, 2010 at 10:19 AM  

People who are fond of qwerty keyboards will surely love the Sanyo SCP-6760 Incognito. The qwerty keyboard is very comfortable and easy to use. The look is very trendy. People who are fond of messaging will like this phone. You can easily access sites like Facebook, Twitter etc. The 2.0 mp camera is not
impressive. The music quality is very poor. It is not meant for the youths.
