Pantech Burst (AT&T) Review

Pantech Burst (AT&T) Review

The Pantech Burst combines fast 4G LTE speeds with a high-quality Super AMOLED display for a very good price.

4 stars
(4 out of 5)

The Pantech Burst is hands-down one of the fastest phones anywhere for $49. The 4G LTE speeds are fantastic, and the tweaks Pantech made to the Android interface makes the UI more intuitive. The slow camera is a letdown, and we wish the battery lasted a bit longer, but overall, this smartphone is a great value. While some first-time smartphone owners on AT&T might prefer the more affordable and even more pocket-friendly Samsung Focus Flash running Windows Phone, Android fans will appreciate the Burst’s true 4G data rates and larger Super AMOLED display.
