A perfectly average messaging phone

Pantech Vybe

from PC Magazine (about 1 year ago)

The Pantech Vybe is a decent messaging phone, but there's just so little new here that I don't understand its place in AT&T's lineup.

The Pantech Vybe is a decent messaging phone, but there's just so little new here that I don't understand its place in AT&T's lineup. It's almost the same phone as the Pantech Renue, and I'd probably get the Renue instead for its eco-friendly, more durable build and slightly better call quality (though the Vybe has a somewhat sharper display). If you must have a keyboard, your only other option is the LG Xpression 2, which we haven't tested yet, but looks similar feature-wise to the Pantech devices.

The Pantech Breeze IV is a fine little phone, but definitely has some limitations. It's hard to ask for much more from the hardware itself. The B4 is an inexpensive flip phone, which means we can't expect the world. The hardware works well enough for anyone considering a flip phone, though I wish it were easier to get at the memory card slot.

When it comes to actual performance, the Breeze IV is rather weak. Calls aren't loud enough by far, signal performance was mixed, and battery life was disappointing. These are offset by the great screen, and easily customized menus. The software is a cinch to figure out, but doesn't offer much in the way of advanced features. Sure, you can listen to music, surf the web, and take pictures, but none of these are very satisfying as realized on the Breeze IV.

In many ways, the Pantech Discover is more impressive than some phones we can name at twice the price. It can’t compete directly with the big flagship devices, but within the realm of budget phones it’s well worth the asking price. For just $50 on contract at AT&T, you get a large screen, good performance, long battery life, comfortable design, and a decent camera. The cool speakers are just icing.

With its crisp display, above-average performance, excellent camera and fast speeds on Verizon's 4G LTE network, the $99 Pantech Perception has the makings of a great buy. We especially like the Starter mode for first-time smartphone owners. Unfortunately, our perception of the Perception is clouded by a battery that won't last you through the workday.

If we were back in January, the Pantech Perception would be a halfway decent mid-level smartphone for the price. But as we mentioned earlier, with higher end devices from last year being discounted down to under $100 on-contract, it is really a tough sell for the Perception. Even though we like its 4.8” 720p Super AMOLED display, overall styling, and ease of use, the poor camera quality and digital-sounding call quality is holding it back – not to mention it comes running Android Ice Cream Sandwich instead of Jelly Bean.

Pantech did an admirable job with the Perception. It has a simple but charming design and offers more customization options than most other devices.

The Perception's screen is quite good, call quality is excellent, and battery life is stellar. Though I wish it had a more modern version of Android, the software tools added by Pantech give the Perception plenty to work with. The performance of the software was fine across the board. About the only thing that really bugged me was the weird focusing issue with the camera.

The Pantech Perception is a fine addition to Pantech’s archive of relatively unique devices, and makes one wish they’d continue to push forth in the USA for a more on-time release. This device could have been a really great addition to Verizon’s ranks if it’d been brought to the market right around a year ago. Unfortunately, since it’s being shown here in the Spring of 2013, this release falls flat in the face of its much more robust competitors.

I for one will never buy another Pantech device. They're sluggish, out of touch, and behind the times.

Pantech C3

I've had this phone for over three years now, giving it constant use and dropping it all the time, and it's never failed on me. Granted, it doesn't have all the features that smartphones have, but what it does have it does great. And it's cheap. I recommend it.

Pro: Easy to text on. That's about all that I like. Con: Bad battery. Really crappy memory that does not hold much. When your messages are full, it doesn't tell you beforehand but right as you are about to send the message. Not the best camera, you have to be really steady to make sure it doesn't turn out blurry. Super slow, espicially when you add a new contact and it has to 'sync' never had a phone do that before. When you are on a certain person's message log, and you press call, it calls another person, and not whoever's message you are on. Using experience: 5 months At first, I loved this phone. I was so excited to get rid of my iPhone 3g for this. The battery, I thought was great, and it was at first, but slowly it's getting worse. Not to mention the horrible horrible memory, and the slow-ness. Now, I must admit that I did have an 8 gb iPhone, but still, this phone is stuck in 2000. The only thing I like is the keyboard, it's easy and fun to text on, but the whole texting part isn't fun because the horrible phone quality. I wouldn't reccomend it to anyone, and I'm glad it's free. I cannot wait until my contract is up to get rid of this piece of crap. Oh, and it scratches very easily.

I finally found a phone that is easy to use, and works well. It even has Font sizes which enables you to make the letters larger. Bluetooth capable and was easy to add to the car. So far the phone works great.

I know this phone isn't on the market anymore, but just in case anyone comes across a cheap used one I figured I'd better throw in my two cents. This is the best phone I have ever / will ever own. Sure it doesn't have an mp3 player, expandable ring tones, an HD camera, etc., but if you're looking for a CELL PHONE (you know, to call and text people), look no further. I've had this phone for almost 4 years now and its never caused me any grief. Reception is excellent, and the built in key shortcuts help you whiz around the interface like its your day job. I bought a new battery for it today, as the battery life is starting to get a little too short for me (though this isn't a phone problem: any battery would be close to its death after powering a device for 4 straight years). There's a funny glitch where if you open the phone at the exact same time the front display turns off (from when you opened it previously), you'll come face-to-face with a blank white screen. All you have to do it close the phone and wait for the front display to turn off. Open it up and you'll be fine. I'm looking forward to (hopefully) another 4 years with my new battery, and shudder to think about my life without this phone.

I have had many cell phones and bought dozens of them for a large family. For the ADULTS, this is the best phone I have ever had! I don't text or use social groups so who needs a smart phone? This has nice large keys, 3 speed dial keys- see 1,2,3 buttons under display(you can program more)voice activated dialing, easy menu interface, I can't rave enough about it. For a basic cell phone plan since this is not a "smart" phone, I was able to get internet access and email access for just $10 a month. With this phone I have everything Iphone users rave about for so much less. I am VERY happy with this phone. In fact, I will probably buy a few off ebay as interest and prices decline so that I have a spare in the future. Not a kid phone because it is not really text friendly, but if you use your phone to TALK, like old folks do, you won't be sorry you bought this one - if you use your phone to TALK this is THE ONE.
