A nice entry level LTE device

from Android Central (over 2 years ago)

So, is this the right device for you? Well, if you are looking for a mid level device on Verizon, and want to be able to take advantage of Verizon's expanding 4G LTE network without investing a small fortune to do so, then yes. If you are looking for the latest and greatest Verizon has to offer, probably... More

A nice if not particularly remarkable basic smartphone

from Brighthand (over 2 years ago)

The Pantech Breakout will no doubt attract some attention for being a relatively cheap 4G device. Fortunately, that's not it's only merit as an entry level smartphone. It also has reasonably good design, good specs, nice screen, and comes with 8 GB of memory to get you started.

The Breakout is a good phone for the first time smartphone user

from BWOne (over 2 years ago)

The Pantech Breakout is a good phone for the first time smartphone user. Advanced and power users you will want to look elsewhere. This phone is great for those who have used feature phones and have been afraid of jumping into the smartphone world and have no idea how to use their phone. This phone does... More

An impressive device for its price

from Geek (over 2 years ago)

I was more than surprised by the quality of the Breakout. All in all, the $99 Pantech Breakout is an impressive device for its price. This is not a “top of the line” phone, but it can certainly play nice with the other LTE phones and looks pretty good while doing it. Provided that Pantech... More

A solid mid-range Android smartphone with LTE

from Mobile Tech Review (over 2 years ago)

We're happy to see Pantech move up in the market, and the Breakout is a solid mid-range Android smartphone with LTE. Though the phone sometimes lags a bit and 4G LTE speeds don't match top dog phones like the Bionic, it is currently one third the price with contract. The phone has a sharp display, runs... More

Low cost Verizon 4G handset

from PhoneArena (over 2 years ago)

When it comes right down to it, the Pantech Breakout is clearly for someone who wants a Verizon 4G smartphone, but without spending a few hundred bucks on one. We like that it’s thin and lightweight, and feels comfortable in the hand, through the 4 function buttons on the front are a bit awkward... More

If you don't give a whit about the camera or video, the Breakout is a fast and straightforward Android handset

from Cnet (over 2 years ago)

In a perfect phone, the strength of the hardware would match that of the software. In this case, the Pantech Breakout 4G's software bested its hardware. If all you do is make calls and operate apps and the browser, you and the Breakout will get along just fine. The custom interface and dial pads are... More

A decent option for heavy downloaders on a budget

from Engadget (over 2 years ago)

All said, Pantech's done a commendable job of cutting corners in all the right places. It still features a CPU with the same clockspeed as the Thunderbolt and Revolution, carries a competitive amount of RAM to accompany it, has an above-average display and exudes a design more elegant than its price... More

A phone that fits its price

from SlashGear (over 2 years ago)

For those looking to get into the world of Android, try their first 4G LTE smartphone, or just are on a budget the Pantech Breakout will make one great choice. Many might opt for the high priced Bionic at $299, but Pantech is clearly aiming this device toward new buyers or someone that isn’t a... More

It is certainly the least expensive and does stand out in a lineup as having a unique chassis

from Android Community (over 2 years ago)

Pantech does not win in a race for the top specs, but it is certainly the least expensive and does stand out in a lineup as having a unique chassis. Should you just be getting into the smartphone world with this jump, Pantech may well have the easy-to-use device for you. Should you already be in the... More
