Introduction:

Pantech Pocket Review
Pantech has been known to make some really affordable devices, but seeing that the competition are known to do the same, they’re going to need to work harder to justify why their selections are superior. With its 4:3 aspect ratio, the Pantech Pocket is undoubtedly different from everything else available on AT&T’s lineup, but physicalities aside, will it be enough to stand out above the crop?


Design:

Can you say different? Well, that’s the whole idea behind the Pantech Pocket with its wide all-plastic body and rubberized soft touch patterned surface. Yes, it’s not a common size for a contemporary smartphone, but nonetheless, it’s solid feeling all around to make it appreciable.

The 4” WVGA display

Boasting a 4” WVGA (480 x 800) display with an aspect ratio of 4:3, it’s seemingly something that warrants recognition since it blatantly stands out. Unlike its widescreen counterparts, our thumb is able to easily hit and encompass all four corners of the display. And of course, it’s detailed enough to make out fine text, but its weak brightness output, bluish tinge, and poor viewing angles make it difficult to view.

Too bad. This is a neat form factor. I would have liked to see it be a hit, just due to it being different.

Dislike this phone. It crashes completely on me at least twice a day requiring a hard battery pull. It also freezes as I am dialing. Took it to the ATT store and they reset all the defaults ad told me to bring it back if it keeps doing it. Taking it back tomorrow. Too bad.
