Conclusion: Even though PCMag.com's Alex Colon says, "If all you're looking to do is talk and text, the Pursuit II is a fine choice," he suggests that a cheap smartphone like the iPhone 3GS or Samsung's Captivate would be a better choice.
Pros: Solidly built, Captures great photos, User-friendly hardware keyboard
Cons: Terrible video recording, Short battery life, Slow 3G speeds, Proprietary headphone jack, Sluggish interface
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.
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
