Pantech Pocket

16 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The Pocket undergoes an array of signal, call quality, processor performance and battery durability tests from reviewers, and although there's nothing to brag about, overall it makes a favorable impression among reviewers. Still, some suggest alternatives: For example, Lendino recommends Samsung's Galaxy SII Skyrocket or the Motorola Atrix 2.
  • Pros: Sturdy build, Good reception
  • Cons: Mediocre camera, Awkward MicroUSB port location, Choppy video playback, Voices sound distorted, Poor viewing angles

PC Magazine
29 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The Pantech Pocket has an interesting design with considerable benefits, though a few flaws that have nothing to do with its shape hold it back.
  • Pros: Powerful Android phone for the price. Squarish 4:3 screen improves messaging, Web browsing, and videos. Stellar battery life.
  • Cons: Poor voice quality. Some sluggishness. Mediocre camera. Uncomfortable to hold for voice calls. Must pull the battery to swap memory cards.

Pantech Pocket – an affordable phone for field work with a 4:3 format display

7 January 2012
  • Conclusion: For a $50 price point with a two year contract, the Pantech Pocket is a pretty interesting offer, and it would definitely be a good choice for those who need a durable phone with a big display, although the 4:3 format is more of a drawback than an advantage for most people.

Pantech Pocket (AT&T)

29 December 2011
  • Summary: The Pantech Pocket dishes up a solid 4G Android Gingerbread experience at a wallet-friendly price, but the extra-wide frame, absent camera flash, and poor video playback quality could deter some folks.
  • Pros: An intriguing design, a helpful take on Android, and a reliable camera make the Pantech Pocket an interesting smartphone choice for AT&T. It also has 4G HSPA+ speeds.
  • Cons: No camera flash and poor video playback quality are black marks against the Pocket. Small controls don't do it any favors, either. Call quality could be better.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: As much as we’d love to give props to Pantech for enabling the Pocket to stand out with its untraditional size, there’s nothing really going on elsewhere to make it a polarizing offering. Actually, it’s more of the same from Pantech’s camp, as they have yet another middle of the road offering that’s affordable on any budget.
  • Pros: Non-traditional size, Solid build
  • Cons: Overall sluggish performance, Shoots ugly photos and videos, Washed out looking display
