  • Conclusion: The Pantech Link is a decent phone for the price truly, without contract it’s only $160, with contract it’s $10. You can’t beat that price really, for that price it’s well worth it. Call quality is decent for the most part, as is web browsing.

  • Cons: Camera not the greatest, Web browsing could be better, screen a bit too small, Interface is fairly plain

  • Conclusion: We're still wondering what Pantech's thinking was with the Link – it sort of reminds us of how it “links” traditional basic phone owners to the sophisticated designs of smartphones.
  • Pros: Sleek & quality design, Light weight, Ability to record calls

23 April 2010
  • Conclusion: My daughter used this phone for a while, but eventually abandoned it. To me, although it resemble a Blackberry, it was more of a souped-up texting phone than a smartphone, with the OS being a bit limited and clunky to use.
  • Pros: Hardware: thin, lightweight, solid & looks great, Quite a few software/app features
  • Cons: hesitates when launch apps or interfacing with web, no 3.5mm headphone jack, no USB-type charge/data connection
