Pantech Jest Review
Razzle and Blitz,as it only had on average 1 bar showing in strong signal areas, andoccasionally would show 0 bars, though it didn’t drop any calls. Thecall quality was also a disappointment, as there was noticeabledistortion and buzzing in the earpiece, even when the volume was turneddown, which we also encountered when using the Razzle and Blitz.
The Jest comes with a 920mAh battery,just like the Razzle and Blitz, which is rated to provide it up to 4.6hours of talk time or 15 days of standby time on a full charge. Ourtesting revealed 4 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge,which is the same as the previous two models.
Based on our usage of the Pantech Jest,we feel that it is an OK messaging device that has a nice 2.6” displayand comes in at a low price, but the poor call quality and signalreception has us concerned, as this still hasn’t been fixed since wereviewed the Razzle and Blitz. We can only hope that Pantech will getthis right the next time around. At this point, we would suggest the LG Cosmos VN250 instead, as it not only offers better call quality and signal reception, but a better designed QWERTY keyboard as well.
