good phone but iffy software

eli m. has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

i got this phone three days ago its been okay. its hard to make a cheap touch screen phone that works well and pantech has created one. the touch screen isnt the best but it isnt that bad for a $50 phone. the keyboard is also just okay but this is mainly due to the touch screen. my main problem is the software. within the first hour of owning the phone i ran into software problems in the music player. now because this phone is so new im not gonna complain because they probly have not had time to update the software.

Build quality 10/10 nice looking and seams like good quality
Reception 10/10 verizon so cant complain
Call quality 10/10 no problems
Internet 9/10 just average browser. kinda difficult to use.
Multimedia 8/10 my only problem is with the music player. there are definatly some major bugs in the software
Camera 9/10
UI speed 10/10
Everyday usage 9/10 some of the controls are awkward like in texting.
Text input 8/10 some problems when typing mostly due to the touch screen
Display 9/10 average
Battery 8/10 battery starts to die after listening for music for less than an hour

Pros

  • the phones physical layout
  • buttons on the side are useful
  • the way you unlock it

Cons

  • some of the software isnt 100% bug free

Pretty nice phone

cspence has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

this is a nice little phone...i was amazed at how slim it is...everything is great...texting is a little hard to get used to and im disappoint u cant calibrate the touch screen...i would have liked to see the qwerty keyboard to be a nicer fit (as in more of a computer keyboard for smoother texting rather then just keys one on top of another) but overall its a good phone two thumbs up

Crux, very good up there with the best.

Verizonisbetterthanat&t has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

The crux is very good. The build quality is excellent it looks cheap in the pictures that are shown but it feels very solid in the hand and is not at all cheap. In the pictures it is green but it is really blue and blackish. Reception is great because it is on Verizon. Call quality is good because it isn't too loud and it isn't too quiet. The multimedia is good. The music player sound just like an Ipod. The camera was good. It takes pictures and video. The internet browser is great it is easy too use. The battery life is ok and text messaging is easy too use. This phone is the perfect size for anyone.

Build quality 10/10 It look good, is not built cheap, and feels solid in the hand. The pictures that are shown look nothing like it.
Reception 10/10 It is great because Verizon has the best coverage.
Call quality 10/10 When you talk it's not too loud and not too quiet.
Internet 9/10 The browser is very good.
Multimedia 10/10 The music sounds great
Camera 10/10 The camera pictures look good
UI speed 9/10 It is very fast
Everyday usage 10/10 It is good at everything
Text input 10/10 Very easy to use.
Display 10/10 The screen is not too big and not too small
Battery 7/10 Battery life is solid.

Pros

  • Everything

Cons

  • Battery Life is so-so

Excellent!

jon_D has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I got the Intensity II three weeks ago, but yesterday i saw the crux on the verizon website. Today i went right over and replaced my intensity (not a bad phone) for it. So far i love the design and the virtual keyboard is very good. don't get me wrong, the intensity II is a good phone (better than the cosmos. My friend has it and he likes the intensity more too), but it doesn't compare to the crux. If you are stuck between the crux and the intensity/cosmos, go with the crux. you won't be sorry.

Pros:
very good touch-screen awesome display great unlock device
