Pantech Pursuit II Review
Call quality could have been better with the Pantech Pursuit II. Callers rated us a 7.5/10, complaining that we sounded tinny and hollow. To us they sounded even worse with very poor voice quality and overall static. We called the user back from our personal phone just to make sure and they sounded much better. The battery life of the Pantech Pursuit II is quite awful. Despite having a 1000mAh battery like the original, talk time has dropped from 5 hours down to just 3. This is a large step backwards, and unfortunately in our testing we were able to drain the battery to 25% in just a few hours while we were checking out the different features of the phone.

Despite having a touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard, the Pantech Pursuit II is a run of the mill phone by today’s standards. Pantech has done a nice job by upgrading the display to capacitive and giving the Pursuit II a nice redesign and build quality, but there is little else to distinguish it from the hordes of messaging phones available these days. The call quality and battery life are our two main complaints about the Pursuit II. If you’re mainly a messenger, like the look and build quality of the phone, and don’t mind a few extra charges, we won’t stop you from picking up the Pantech Pursuit II, but if you decide on the Samsung Strive because it’s purple or the LG Neon II because it’s black we can’t really fault you either.
