Excerpt: The Pantech Impact, available at AT&T, is a flip-style full QWERTY messaging device. Reviewers generally like the design -- the exception being PC World's Damon Brown who calls it "clumsy" -- though it's somewhat bulkier than some of its rivals including the LG enV3 (Free with contract).
Pros: High-quality OLED display, Bright, vibrant internal display, Good web browser
Cons: Can't use camera when phone is closed, No flash on camera, Proprietary headphone jack
Conclusion: The Pantech Impact is certainly a unique and versatile phone for sure, but I found the battery life quite lacking, I expected a bit more from it. It seems as soon as you start using, even a little bit of data, the battery drains quickly.
Pros: Very good call quality, Full keyboard on basic phone, Much more than just a basic phone, Interesting and unique design, Screen is nice and bright
Cons: Battery life not great, Poor picture quality form camera, Camera placement is not ideal, Keyboard seems a bit cramped
Conclusion: Pantech hits the mark with the Impact for a text messaging oriented handset that’ll make short work out of sending lengthy messages. With its unique look, thanks to the OLED display and touch sensitive keypad, it’ll instantly capture the gaze of many around this phone.
Pros: Long battery life, Well-sized QWERTY keyboard, Great web browsing experience, External OLED display, Appealing looks
