Pantech Reveal C790 Review


Call quality on the Pantech Reveal C790 was a small disappointment because of the constant background noise that was heard on our end. Voices had a somewhat muffled sound to them, but still audible enough to the ear to make out words. On the other end, our callers stated that our voice sounded mute but without any static in the background. Switching to the speakerphone, we were told we sounded faint as if we were far from the phone. It was really difficult making out our conversations with the speakerphone – our callers sounded extremely muffled.

During our testing, the Pantech Reveal C790 was able to retain a constant good connection to AT&T's network – bars were solid with no dropped calls.

Battery life was impressive after clocking in 5 solid days of normal use which included heavy texting and web surfing. Pantech has the device rated for 3 hours of talk and 240 hours of standby time.


With plenty of similar text messaging devices available, we were impressed with how Pantech easily turned things around with the Reveal. It does everything right in terms of upgrades between older models and this one – better screen, more in tune with its media capabilities, and a new form factor makes it excel as a well rounded device. Throw in an inexpensive price tag and we're sure that Pantech has revealed all it could to win over the messaging crowd. The Pantech Reveal C790 easily competes in an already crowded market and can stand its own ground without being lost in the baggage of sub-par handsets.
