I recently just brought a Sanyo 7400 of Trade me for $200, it is in perfect condition and only 4months old but I seem to prefur my old 8200 over it. My 8200 is water damaged though and turns on and off and has mental fits where the screen flashes...

but yeah. 

What is the 'newer' model out of the two, what one was released first? The camera on the 8200 seems to be in a better place and is the same quality as the 7400. I don't really mind theres no video as the video on the 7400 isnt great. 

Although the 7400 does have a nice keypad which is very easy to text with, and a slighty larger screen. But the phone is quite bigger and heavier.

So what do you guys think out of the two? which phone would you choose? Im thinking of re-selling this 7400... how much do you think it would be worth?

4month old 7400, mint cond. includes box, manuals, charger, red and silver faceplate.

The Sanyo 7400 was first out of the two, but the 8200 went EOL first.

Personally I would rather the 7400, try stick with it for a while and see how you go...

yes $200 is a good buy for a 7400 in pristine condition.

The 7400 was a very well thought out phone in most respects, and is great as a general text/voice phone...
