"Best full featured "non" smartphone out there."5.0 starson by bechtoea
Pros: Very versatile, easily carried, seems to be durable, and best of all, easy to use.
Cons: Open's up when you pop it in your pocket, recommend for "men" a lock of some sort on the next design. If you turn the phone off (required where I work), the keypad on the front isn't locked so it can turn itself on in your pocket.
Summary: This phone replaced a very basic Nokia phone. Also, I still have my litle "World's smallest camera phone" made by pantech. I didn't want a smartphone because the data plan is twice as much. The cool thing about this little Pantech Matrix is it will do 90% of what a Smartphone will, certainly more than most people will ever need. Navigation and MobileTV have additional cost though not as much as one might think. Furthermore, CV, basically a video news and entertainment feature, is FREE with the $15 data plan. And the phone is easy and intuitive, and for stuff you can't figure out, there's the owner's manual and even online tips and tricks. This is one nice phone.
Other stuff I like. First, it's LOUD!! I usually have to crank the volume up on other models to hear the caller but on any Pantech, you can get the earpiece almost as loud as the speakerphone if you choose. The ringer is the same way.
Things I don't like? When you lock the keys out, if you go to put it in your pocket be careful or the unit will open and unlock all the keys. there is a way to lock the front keypad, but then it's a pain to unlock. The better fix would be to have a way of just locking the unit closed. It would be ideal because you can still answer calls with the unit closed. Also, some of the QWERTY keyboard keys "wash out" with some types of lighting so you cannot read it. Finally, the book and all documentation states the camera has a zoom. It does not, probably a software bug since the video camera DOES have zoom.
That's all I got. The unit rox, I love it, it's better than any other I have had and I have had quite a few.
