Summary: Even with the Pantech Flex's low price of $50 on contract, the question of the day is whether it's worth a two-year commitment. To its credit, the phone offers the same level of performance that you'll find in top-tier smartphones, along with a quality display, admirable battery life and access to AT&T's LTE network. Jokes about multiple personalities aside, the Flex includes two excellent software environments that should appeal to experts and novices alike.
Pros: Excellent performance and value, Great battery life, Top-notch call quality, Better than average display
Conclusion: Factoring all of its features, hardware, and price point, it’s very hard to not like the Pantech Flex . No doubt, it really flexes its muscles enough to make it a fine offering in many ways, and without question, this is the most soundly premium smartphone we’ve seen come out of Pantech.
Pros: Solid industrial design for a Pantech device, Inexpensive $50 price point, Good balance of hardware & performance
Excerpt: The Pantech Flex is a lot of phone for just $49.99 on contract with ATT. Soon to be joined by the similarly priced LG Escape; the Flex offers some reasonably high end features like a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU (the same as that used on the Galaxy S III and HTC One X ), 4G LTE and a qHD 4.3" Super AMOLED display. It's a slim and good looking phone, and doesn't have that chunky budget look of previous Pantech models in this price range.
Pros: Very affordable, fast and slim.
Cons: Not much to complain about at that low price!
