The Pantech Crux is the worst phone I have ever used!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I bought this phone back in December and it is awful. My previous phone was the EnV3 and I absolutely loved all it had to offer me. The Pantech Crux was the exact opposite. The battery life was a day and it holds a third of the messages that my EnV3 held. It wuold freeze up and the keypad was not accurate. I would touch one letter but it would display another. I don't think it was calibrated correctly.
Pros: - OUTSTANDING battery life - The slide-lock is neat at first - Call quality is not horrible - It has a MicroSD port, for music and such - Umm... - The calculator works?
Cons: - The GUI is very slow and lags a lot - The touch screen is ridiculously sticky and unresponsive - Texting is impossibly hard (see above) - The touch screen barely works - Phone can easily unlock in your pocket - Did I mention the touch screen sucks?
Summary: Within a year, I had to replace this phone THREE FREAKING TIMES!!! I wouldn't recommend it.I bought it because I thought it would be an awesome phone. It does have pretty good features, but it's software sucks. I am not satisfied with this phone. It would randomly shut off and one day it shut off and wouldn't go past the Verizon Wireless screen. I would much rather go back to my old Env2.
Excerpt: I got this phone in August and I already have to get a new phone!!!! the screen is unresponsive half the time and it does not stay charged. my back doesn't stay on my phone and it sucks for taking pictures. my mom has the same phone as me and as soon as she goes to her recent calls her phone shuts off. my phone won't stay charged and if it does it shuts off all the time!! it is the WORST PHONE EVER!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: Ive only seen good comments about the phone however I hate mine. Ive had it for a little over 9 months. My battery is split down the middle. How it happened I wont know. It freezes all the time. The texting is bad and i rarely get my phone calls. Maybe its just me but I think it sucks.Ive dropped it maybe 5 times tops. I strongly recommend if you want a close to smartphone I would get the dare. I just ordered mine and already love it. Dont get this phone, waste of money.
