I highly recommend NOT buying this phone.

orcivin, CNET
11 November 2013
  • Summary: Overall, this phone was not worth the cost. Although it was $0 down with a contract, they slip in fees each month with total upwards of $200. The only things I liked about the phone were its nice keyboard and durability. I don't know how many times the phone has doubled as a means to output the frustration in caused. Stood up really well, aside from a few nicks in the paint and some scratches on the screen.
  • Pros: Good keyboard, very durable (played tennis with it after the contract ended), fits almost anywhere
  • Cons: Slow, takes as eternity to access the internet, repeated messages, not a responsive touch screen, overpriced, bad call quality, less than okay camera.

Phone is terribly and is a waste of money

YUMMY55, CNET
14 July 2012
  • Summary: Don't. Buy. This. Phone. The Pantech Laser is a big waste of money. For starters: The touch screen is terrible. I found that touching one thing will select something on the opposite side of the screen (after a calibration). The battery life: About 1 and a half hours. I used the charger so much that the cable broke.
  • Pros: Thin and appealing
  • Cons: Touch Screen freezes, EXTREMELY short battery life, becomes very hot during calls

Don't buy it unless you want issues!

  • Summary: This phone has a lot of issues, and a lot is a understatement! I had my first laser for 3 months, and then the place where the charger connects to the phone stopped working; i had gotten a new charger and battery, nothing worked. I would have to rig the phone to sit up high so the charger was a certain angle to chargefor a short time. So I was sent a replacement phone, I have had it for about a year now and I've had problems ever since I got it.

Really cheap phone

14 March 2012
  • Summary: I got this phone in August and by December the screen was black and I was unable to see anything. There was nothing I could do because they said I didn't have a warranty and it was my fault though I did nothing to the phone. I had a case on it and I didn't drop it that much.
  • Pros: -Really thin, -Attractive, -Easy to Use Keyboard
  • Cons: -Doesn't hold charge long, -Breaks easily, fragile

This is a dismal product; unreliable & built to fail

  • Summary: Avoid this phone. You can do better.
  • Pros: Works adequately for a few months. Then makes a good paper weight.
  • Cons: The most unreliable phone I've ever owned. I'm waiting for my second warranty replacement after just over a year of ownership

Initially, good phone. Long term, bad choice.

  • Summary: This was my second Pantech phone. Guess I didn't learn my lesson on the first one. Will NEVER buy another Pantech product again.
  • Pros: Touch screen is nice. Keyboard is nice. Battery Life is good. Ease of use is good.
  • Cons: Touch screen malfunctioning, unable to select anything from time to time. When I do get messages, I get them twice or three times.

  • Excerpt: my son got the same a while ago, Over all, I love all features except the following two: 1. the precision of rolling the contacts doesn't do what you want. 2. the battery lift is too short doesn't perform as claimed 14 days for standby and 5 hours talking. It ends up I have charge the phone every night.
  • Cons: it maybe very common. My son and I both have the same phone, and have to charge every night.
