Conclusion: The design of the phone is nice, where the original Matrix had sort of a square look and feel to it the Matrix Pro adds some sexy curves with a much more softer and rounder look. If you liked the Matrix, then I’m sure you’ll love the Matrix Pro, it just brings so much more usefulness to an already decent phone.
Pros: Easy to use, Good sound quality, Well made
Cons: Interface can be very slow to react at times, Video camera is bad, No WiFi
Review of the Pantech Matrix Pro dual-slider smartphone
5 March 2009
Excerpt: Offering two different input methods, Pantech's new Matrix Pro smartphone gives users a choice when it comes to messaging on the Windows Mobile smartphone platform. It may not feature high-end multimedia capabilities, but it's a versatile messaging device. Join us as we put the Matrix Pro through its paces in this review.
Conclusion: The Pantech Matrix Pro shows great improvement over last year's Pantech Duo , and it offers that extra dose of smartness over the Pantech Matrix in the web browser, email and syncing departments. With the Motorola Q9 Global and Samsung BlackJack II discounted since they've been on the market a while, the Matrix Pro is a harder sell given the similar feature set and price difference.
Pros: Relatively small, reasonably attractive, very good reception, good GPS, great audio quality over Bluetooth A2DP stereo. Very usable keyboard given the small size-- good tactile feedback.
Cons: Voice quality is good overall, but our test unit's call quality sometimes randomly degraded. No WiFi. Slippery and shows fingerprints like mad. Number pad impossible to use for blind dialing.
