    Hi,
    First off I had a a460 that the screen died, as did my wife's a460. I
    have a bad taste about Samsung's. I hated my reception on the
    a460...is the a620 better??

    However, has the vga 1000, a620, improved? My reception with my a460
    was terrible. I need good reception, and then quality earpiece sound,
    finally calander/datebook functions.

    The 8200 earpiece volume seems to change during a call...loud, softer,
    louder, etc. Very annoying. Also, I did like the a460 alarms, and
    the External ID was much larger...as it seems with the a620. Plus the
    sound seems to break up if I make it a bit louder...at minimum
    sound...the phone is too soft, for me....but the next level up is then
    too loud.

    The 8200 has a tiny external ID....very hard to read outdoors.

    How is the calendar functions on the a420? The 8200's seem
    good....but the quality of the earpiece sound might be too annoying
    for me.

    Help, suggestions!?

    Sanyo has dropped the ball. The 8100 and 8200 have no way near the
    reception that the 4900 had . In a weak area you can her the caller
    fine but to them you are breaking up.
    Like everything else cost cutting has destroyed a really good phone

    I suspect the fact that they are now manufactured in China has some part
    to play in all of this.

    I'm very satisfied with my A620. Vastly superior reception to my A460,
    and better sound, too. I prefer the A620's sound, both incoming and
    outgoing, to that of my wife's 8100, and its external display is easier
    to read than hers, even just to look at to see the time. Both seem to
    have about the same reception. With the A620, I do have to slide it
    around on my ear to find the sweet spot for incoming loudness.

    My A460's display never failed on me, but I know someone else whose A460
    display failed.

    I haven't used the A620's calendar functions.

    Both the 8100 and 8200 are a real let down from the quaity that Sanyo has
    had in the past. I am told that they are made in China but my 2 8100 and 1
    8200 are stamped made in Japan. in any case the phones are a real let down

    For what it's worth, I've had my 8200 for about 3 weeks now and I love
    it. The speaker phone for a cell phone is great, and the earpiece has
    been just fine in my experiences.

    I don't know much about the a620 but I use the 8200's camera phone all
    the time and for a camera phone they look pretty good.
