    This review is from: Pantech Pocket Android Phone (AT&T) (Wireless Phone)

    I actually spotted this phone by accident while my wife and I were in the process of geting new ones, which happened to be Blackberry Torches. However, our new phones were already programmed and wrapped up for us, so it was too late. I TRIED in earnest to like my BB, but I found it to be cumbersome heavy, complicated and simply a bear to use, especially for texting. My wife loves hers, but I decided to go ahead and exchange mine for the Pantech pocket a week and a half later. I had never owned a pantech device before, but have looked at a few of their models over the last few years. However, none have impressed me as much as the Pocket. So far, I am very delighted with this phone.

    One thing about this particular model is that it is BIG and has a screen to boot. I read negative reviews about the size of this phone and that’s understandable. Nonetheless, I did not find it too terribly big and in fact, it fits in my hand perfectly. The biggest attraction is that it is a simple phone to use, yet just the right amount of apps to keep one happy. If you are looking for a blow your socks off phone, this will not do that. However, if you are looking for a “gateway” device that will accustom you to the smartphone, then this is it. Texting and surfing the web on this phone is a breeze.

    Surprisingly, the battery has held up for a couple of days given the size of this phone.

    The reviewer “Beach” above provided remarkable technical details, so i won’t go on about that.

    I believe there is a phone for everyone, and the Pocket is definitely for me.

    Finally found one of these at the aT&T store to mess with today. I looked around the store to see if they had one on demo and its 4:3 screen made it very easy to spot. For texting and replying to email it flys. I had no problem banging out complicated words on the screen with no mistakes and I would not hesitate to reply to emails which may require more words than a simple text message reply. Surfing the internet was a snap and reading text heavy content was excellent with the phone, because if felt like reading a book with the screen shape. I watched some wide format Youtube video on it which had a clear picture and letterboxed the video in the screen. Yes it did have a black bar top and bottom, but as I said picture was clear. The camera gets bashed a bit in some reviews, so I tested it out and found it does lag with the AF turned on. I currently have a EVO 4G and turned off the AF with no problems. I tried the same thing with the pocket and the phone does take photos faster. I don’t see this as a problem because I have survived many vacations with fixed focus cameras that took photos which were good enough and the AF and Macro modes are still there if needed. Not DSLR quality but that is OK. The camcorder takes Ok videos set at 800×480 which is my preference. The phone zipped along quite nicely the whole time I was using it and I did not experience any slow downs. I did not make a call on the phone, so I cannot comment on call quality which I have read is acceptable.
    The shape of the phone does make it wider. I did not have a problem holding the phone to my ear because it has a dimpled texture all the way around. I am a guy, but I don’t have huge hands.
    If you are looking for the latest 15 core super ultra amoledified+ HD screened phone with a camera quality lense this is not it. If you want a phone for texting, email, watching videos, surfing the web with a camera and camcorder which will get the job done this phone will work. It is easier to text on than the EVO I am currently using and I have to say I was able to text faster than I could with my previous BB Curve. I have been looking for a Android phone with a good portrait keyboard and was going to look at the motorola admiral, but this phone will do the job while having faster data speeds than the admiral. The ‘faux’ 4g AT&t is faster than the 3g from sprint. I also like the advantage of not having to worry about a failed keyboard, because it is touch screen.
    Overall I was impressed. The phone ran great (1 Ghz s2 snapdragon with 512 ram). I liked the screen shape for surfing and loved the keyboard. I did not buy one yet for 1 main reason. I am on sprint at 79.99 a month and I get a credit union member 10% discount which is 72 before taxes and fees. The At&t would be $85 a month with no discount + taxes and fees for 450 minutes, texting and 2GB of data. I like the phone alot, now I have to decide if I want to seitch.
