Aaron's Pantech Link review

3 June 2010
  • Summary: A device like the Pantech Link is perfect for the crowd seeking a professional featurephone without the frills and/or high costs of a smartphone.  My father, who is an investment banker, has no interest in carrying a smartphone ("I check e-mail all day; why do it in my free time?" is the typical response I get when I ask why he doesn't use one).

Pantech Link

CNET

  • Summary: The Pantech Link is an absolute steal with an excellent array of midrange features, a great slim design, and a wallet-friendly price. We wish only that it had better call quality.
  • Cons: The call quality could be improved and the HTML browser seems wasted on such a small screen.

iOS Central Pantech Link

Macworld
8 May 2010
  • Excerpt: (1 items) If you’re looking for a slim, affordable messaging phone, Pantech’s Link will set you back just $10 (with a two-year contract from AT&T). The Link is delightfully slim (just 0.39 inch thick); and though it’s array of features is a bit modest, it is perfect for money-conscious texters. The Link has a candy bar design with a textured, rubberized back. The thin-yet-durable phone measures 4.5 inches long by 2.4 inches wide, and weighs just 3.2 ounces.
  • Pros: Very inexpensive, Sturdy, light construction
  • Cons: The coolest features cost extra, Camera is only 1.3 megapixels

Review of Pantech Link

Testfreaks blog
28 April 2010
  • 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. The display is a bit small though for enjoyable browsing. The media player actually works quite well, but there’s no 3.5mm jack, but the link does have Bluetooth 2.0 so you can use a wireless stereo headset with it for music.
  • Pros: Decent call quality with a couple small issues, Bluetooth stereo, Gets rated battery life
  • Cons: Camera not the greatest, Web browsing could be better, screen a bit too small, Interface is fairly plain

Pantech Link Review

Phone Arena
27 April 2010
  • 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. From afar, it clearly entices anyone with its streamlined look that finds itself in the same category of some smartphones. Moreover, the Pantech Link easily shows how it quickly establishes itself as being a well-balanced phone that will suffice to the needs of many individuals out there.
  • Pros: Sleek & quality design, Light weight, Ability to record calls
  • Cons: Weak battery life, Static sound in phone calls

Pantech Link Mobile Phone Review

The Gadgeteer
23 April 2010
  • Excerpt: A multitude of messaging mobile phones were launched in 2009, and the trend appears to be continuing in 2010.  The recently-release Pantech Link offered through AT&T is one such device (see Press Release here ).  It is a new handset with nice hardware for a great price.  Let’s dig in. In the interest of full disclosure and to establish a baseline, my perspective is shaped by currently being a very happy iPhone 3GS user.
  • 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
