Summary: The Pantech Pursuit II is not much better than its predecessor, but if all you want is an affordable and functional messaging phone from AT&T, the Pursuit II gets the job done.
Pros: The Pantech Pursuit II is a solid and attractive messaging phone with a roomy slide-out keyboard. Features include GPS, 3G, Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera, an HTML browser, and social networking apps.
Cons: The Pantech Pursuit II doesn't offer many improvements over the original Pursuit, with a slightly more generic design. The HTML browser is pretty bare-bones, and we would've liked better 3G speeds. Mobile e-mail requires a subscription fee.
Summary: Pantech Pursuit II not at all unattractive; it just doesn’t seem as distinctive as its predecessor. Moreover, we preferred the horizontal keyboard on the original, and the features of the Pursuit II are largely the same as before. Still, if you disregard its past, the Pursuit II works as a pretty good messaging phone for AT&T, with features like GPS, Bluetooth, a HTML browser, and preloaded social media applications.
Pros: Upgraded to a capacitive display, Good build quality, Brew MP allows for some minor customization
Cons: Very poor battery life, Mediocre call quality, Camcorder is unusable
