Pantech Pocket hands-on

0. phoneArena 12 Oct 2011, 19:41 posted on

Right from the start, it’s classic Pantech styling as the Pocket utilizes the same design cues found with other devices – like the Pantech Pursuit II with its squarish size. Solidly built for the most part, thanks to its rubbery exterior, the first thing to really capture our...

i read that the iphone 4s got better scores on benchmarks than the sgs2 does that mean that the A5 is better it than the one in the sgs2?

the A5 is an Apple modified version of the one in the Galaxy S II, Samsung makes them both. now what Benchmarks are you referring to?

yeah, it is. Samsung makes Apple's SoCs or at least they used to. with all the Patent stuff going on Apple is looking around for another business partner.

to answer your question i'd say the A5 works better for the iPhone 4S than Exynos does for the Galaxy S II, there's too many factors to really say which one is better but it's probably the A5 being that it's a modified Exynos.

What does this article have to do with the iPhone? There's an article about the benchmarks so post in there.

Anyway, I like how wide the screen is, too many phones are too narrow.

I kinda like the wide body, and I agree that the home screen is neat. Pantech needs a hit. Why not a low price, unique body style? If a higher end option came out with this form factor, I would be interested....

I wish manufacturers would get rid of their logo as well as the carrier's logo. Once you remove both logos, there's more real estate for the screen.

The phone is distinctive enough that people will recognize as a Pantech.
