Summary: Though we have a few quibbles with it, the Pantech Ease is overall a smart hybrid that will please both grandparents and grandchildren alike.
Pros: The Pantech Ease has a beautiful capacitive touch-screen display and a sturdy slider QWERTY keyboard. It has two modes: the Easy mode is cleverly designed for cell phone novices and senior citizens; advanced users will like the 2-megapixel camera, music player, and 3G speeds. Call quality is great thanks to a noise suppression technology.
Cons: We understand the need to separate different features for Easy and Advanced modes, but we sometimes find the categorization to be arbitrary. For example, a pill reminder and pedometer aren't available in Advanced mode, and notepad and stopwatch aren't in Easy mode.
