Pantech Burst ReviewPantech Burst 8
Sadly, you can’t win them all, as we know all too well. Specifically, the smartphone’s 5-megapixel auto-focus camera fails to capture any reasonable looking photos, but even more annoying is the lengthy time it requires to snap a shot. Previewing the results, its details are profoundly soft in tone, but for some reason, it constantly exhibits a prominent greenish hue with its color reproduction. Shots taken in low lighting tend to look very grainy, though, we’re appalled by the very weak LED flash that fails to even illuminate subjects that are 3 feet away.
Pantech Burst Sample Video:
Neither ugly nor attractive looking, the Pantech Burst comes at us with a very conventional looking music player, though, we do like the option of browsing through our collection with its swipe friendly carousel. With its single speaker, it emits tones that are pleasant to hear, but there’s a slight hint of hollowness with it. Still, it can be remedied by selecting the appropriate equalizer option.

If i was on at&t I would get this phone but since my mom is on sprint i will settle for the Photon becasue it is the same price for a new extension at walmart. lol

I wouldn't say that the photon is settling at all... Its a great phone and I would say has a lot of Pros over the burst even given that it was released 6 months ago

pls tell me how u managed to get root for this device (noticed the superuser icon in the screenshots). I've had this phone for almost 30 days now, been trying to root since day 1. And with the exception of the low-quality camera software, all in all it's fantastic.

I just got one and I've got to say its really quite a good little smartphone. It works just as well as my friends Samsung and Motorola phones. The 4G LTE is fast and the phone its self is quick, so far I think the budget company has finally hit a home run with the Burst.

I own the Pantech Burst and I have only had it for 3 weeks never dropped it or got it wet and recently it quit charging and won't turn on for me at all..So i called and because i didnt have the box they had to call Pantech directly and they are priority mailing me a new phone in the mail next day shipping, they are charging me 15.00 just to get a new phone... I believe it should have been no charge because of it being their product they looked over it thoroughly and found nothing what so ever wrong no liquid damage or any damage of any type.

Its been a few months now and the phone still works great. Its now my all in one since I use it for music now, the SQ is better than my Fuze and Cowon J3 which is just shocking to me. Paired with my FiiO E11 headphone amp and Triple Fi 10 the sound quality is outstanding. This is the best phone you can get as far as price performance goes.
