MobileBurn (dead link) reviews Sanyo Katana for Sprint and recommends Sanyo Katana mobile phone with conclusion that “I really like the Sanyo Katana. The device is reasonably good looking, and it is both thin and light. If you are a Sprint customer, this is the closest thing to a Motorola RAZR V3 that you are likely to ever find. It may not be very original, but it scores well on usability and is overall a pleasure to use. Its QVGA display is an added bonus. It scores a solid “Recommended” rating.”
