Pantech Burst Review

0. phoneArena posted on 03 Feb 2012, 07:01

Rather than letting the competition absorb the fruitful rewards associated with AT&T’s 4G LTE network, the Pantech Burst is exploding onto the scene in hopes of gaining some sort of visibility with its oh-so lovable on-contract price of $49.99. Instead of finding something watered down in the specs department, which might be the first thing to come to mind for most people, this handset isn’t messing around...

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.
