Pantech Crux Review

0. phoneArena posted on 01 Dec 2010, 06:16

Now that touchscreen phones have become all the rage, Pantech’s answer is the new Crux, a thin and lightweight feature-phone with a 3” touchscreen, coming in at a low price. But does the Pantech Crux have what it takes to become the next big thing in the feature-phone mainstream arena?...

DONT GET THIS PHONE! I have had it for about 7 months now and it sucks. I love the sleek look and little functions it has but it never works right. The touch pad is very un responsive, it takes forever to scroll and makes you backtrack a lot because it things you clicked it half the time. This also makes texting a pain. It has many windows that it can switch around on but you never really use any but the first. Also, this phone gets Uber slow with just normal text usage. Sometimes it took me up to 4 seconds to do open a message. ( and no i didnt have more than 75 messages in my inbox). Everything is acceptable to work with, just makes it a pain using it. Another thing that made me hate this phone is that the screen keeps glitching out on me. For no reason it would go all fuzzy or the whole screen would stay black. It stayed like that for a whole day even. Finally, this phone continuously turned off stating that it needed a "genuine" battery, even though the battery was the one i got with the phone from the verizon store. It should have worked fine.
If I were you, i would not get this phone at all.
I would rate this 2 stars out of 5.

I would not recomend this phone. It works great and has awesome speed, but if you are into texting this is not the phone for you. The keyboard is never calibrated good enough so it thinks you types something that you really didn't. It also doesn't remember the words you type in, so you have to look through the list until you find the word you actually want. It's just a major pain..

NEVER BUY THIS PHONE! i didn't listen to any of the reviews, but they are all right. there is no way to calabirate the touchscreen so it sucks. most of the time people don;t get your texts for a long time. and unless you turn the phone on and off constantly during the day, dont count on getting your texts, cause unless you do turn it on and off or call your voicemail you wont get your texts for hours. this phones is horrible! anyone who says its good is crazy and obviously doesnt use it that much or just got it. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

DON'T BUY THIS PHONE!!! It is terrible to text on, the music sounds grainy and the words are not clear, it freezes and shuts down a lot, when I go to the beach sand gets stuck in the sliding part and makes an annoying noise and its harder to slide, there are not any good games.... AND IT SUCKS. DO. NOT. BUY.

DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. Texting / keyboard interface is horrible and sluggish. Call quality sucks. You're better off not using the speakerphone. Bluetooth sucks. SMS only works when it wants. Sometimes does a random tap when you don't want it to. Menus are often slow. Pantech has done a great disservice to mankind by even thinking of releasing this crap, much less making so many of them...

Here We Go: When I first bought this phone a year and a half ago, i thought it was the best thing.... Dammnn was I wrong. This phone is terrible. I went from a samsung allis2 to this and I should of kept my allis for 4 years . The keyboard sticks and you can't recalabrate it. I rather have a corny flip phone.
PRO: camera
CON; Battery Life, keyboard, locking switch up. service, menu button,
