Excerpt: The Pantech Jest is a prepaid cell phone with a slide-down keyboard body style. It has several multimedia features that individuals of all ages will benefit from and provides several high-quality calling features. This phone has its drawbacks, but it has adequate features for many people who choose pay-as-you-go mobile phone plans.
Pros: The Pantech Jest's slide-out keyboard, small size and 2MP camera make it ideal for prepaid phone customers.
Cons: The display screen is smaller than competing phones' displays, and the keyboard adds extra weight.
Conclusion: Based on our usage of the Pantech Jest , we feel that it is an OK messaging device that has a nice 2.6” display and comes in at a low price, but the poor call quality and signal reception has us concerned, as this still hasn’t been fixed since we reviewed the Razzle and Blitz. We can only hope that Pantech will get this right the next time around.
Pros: Compact design with sliding keyboard, 2.6” display, Music can be played in the background, 975MB of internal memory
Cons: Poor call quality and signal reception, Videos and pictures look mediocre, Optical d-pad is finicky
