Summary: This phone my be cheap on Verizon, however it is just a bad buy the screen has a horrible fuzzy resolution that makes it seem like your watching a 1980 television, the processor is slow and dim-witted and the battery life is poor. The phone is as heavy as a brick but it build like a rock, easily surviving a drop from your pocket. You would be better off with a rugged phone if that what your looking for.
Pros: the phone is strongly built and hard to kill
Cons: The screen is abysmal, slow processor and lagging performance and dated interface.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for 1 year as of Oct of 2013...I liked it at first. I thought it was cool because it was my first smart phone. Now that I've had it for a while, I hate it all down to the way it looks. It's always freezing up, it has very little storage, you can't switch apps from your phone to your SD Card or vice versa, it freezes up all the time and I have to shut it off. No one can hear me while I'm on the phone with them. They say I sound "muffled".
Pros: It's cheap, Has a "Beginner Mode", Easy to use, App download speed is good (on 4G)
Cons: Not very much memory on phone, Takes a while to load HD Videos and everything else, Can't switch apps from phone to SD Card or Vice Versa, Can't choose where to download individual apps (Phone or SD Card), Call quality is not good, Very cheaply made
Excerpt: We got this phone in hopes that Pantech might turn around there ways and produce a phone that isn't cheap and glitchy. They didn't. The phone has an overall cheap feel with its body being made of flimsy plastics. The keyboard is barely functional and it seems like they went for a throwback to the old Razr flip-phone keypad style. The processor is average/below average compared to other 4g Android devices. Overall another disappointment from Pantech.
