Excerpt: There has been a noticeable upsurge in smaller and more compact messaging mobile phones in the market today. The Pantech Pursuit has fallen into that category. It is a quick messaging phone with its sliding keypad and touch screen.
Excerpt: Introduction Some time ago, Pantech made the decision to scale back and focus solely on “Quick Messaging Devices.” In a world that’s full of smartphones from a number of manufacturers, the decision seems to have been a good one. Every Pantech device I’ve worked with has been solid in more ways than one, and is proof that focusing research and development in one specific area is a good way of doing business. That being said, there’s quite a few featurephones out there...
Summary: The Pursuit is another well-made "Quick Messaging Device" from Pantech. Between apps like WHERE and customization options like the ability to add widgets, the phone offers a number of customization features that distinguish it from other phones. It's a low-end device, but it offers enough spice to make it worthy of consideration. The Pantech Pursuit is available in blue and green at AT&T retail locations for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
Pros: Solid build quality and decent battery life.
Conclusion: Pantech is known for their basic phones and they’ve stepped things up a bit here and given us a very nice and usable phone. At it’s heart the Pursuit is a basic phone yes, but it’s really much more than that, it truly is a great phone overall. The camera isn’t the greatest, but then most cameras in basic phones aren’t so it’s not unexpected. So Pantech clearly knows how to make a good phone, now they just need to work on a decent camera.
Pros: Well made, Good battery life, Easy to use and navigate, Responsive touch screen, Great call quality
Cons: Camera is not that good, Screen doesn’t work well in direct sun
