For the record I bought this device in Sept of this year. Off of Ebay. So you know..... When I turned it on, it had me when the screen came on.... The Super AMOLED screen is awesome. The screen is not 1024x whatever (actually 480x800), or higher , but... So WHAT.. It is clear. Except in bright sunlight... Slightly washed out look. But still legible.
Only other gripe for me is my older Huawei u8650, was brighter in the SUn. And had a sensor in front as do most, that controlled ( user option ) the screens reaction to ambient light...
Only negative, actually...
Pantech has right on their website how to re-configure their Burst to download ICS... EZ.. JUST FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS.... Read. Then re-read to digest. Simple actually though.
Performance BLEW AWAY what I was expecting...
QUICK page refreshes. Little or ( most likely )NO hesitation in going from app to app.
Looks right, actually it "punches way above it's weight", pricewise... It has 4g LTE. Works with T-Mobile in NY here... BUT T-Mobile's towers are sparce.... During the storm, T-Mobes service defaulted to AT&T.. So I switched. MUCH better service. The phone comes into its own. Even T-Mobes phones have probs. So don't write about the Burst. It's the carrier.
The battery is ok... Only ok. But I have multiple accounts ( 5 ) pushing email to me. As well as other services running.
Volume is ok. Just. Not slanderously quiet. Better when updated to ICS.
All in all an EXCELLENT user experience.. I am a Pantech fan now... Looking to upgrade to the Flex.. Why... DUnno... 'Cause I can.. And I like like a good brand.. The website's help upgrading, for me, goes a long way. THIS Company, thus far is commited to after sale support. Gotta love it!!
Great product. Good product support. Good looking.
have been using ds fone for abt 3 months nw... so far m damm pleasd wit d overall performance of dis baby.. m thinking abt upgrading to ics nw, cn anyone plizzz tell me if der is any lapse in performance or user experience after upgrading to ics coz i hv seen some negative feedback after upgrading to ics... ur honest opinion n feedback r most welcome.... tnx
Using this phone since 10 days. My experience is its an AWESOME phone. The Specs are simply mind-blowing. I bought it for 11500 on eBay.in. It has almost all the features of Samsung Galaxy SII.
1) The screen is Super AMOLED which is superb
2) 1GB RAM which we can't find in phones below 20K price
3) 1.5Gh Processor makes tasks butter smooth (I have installed almost 120 apps like games, launchers, news apps, mail apps, FB app,G+, etc..)
4) ICS is a breeze on this phone
5) With in India one doesn't worry abt battery life coz 4.5 Hrs batter back up mentioned is with LTE connectivity which is not available in India as of now
6) Camera quality is quite good & camcorder is satisfactory.
I use Wi-fi continuously through out the day & once I'm back in my home I'll switch it to 3G but it still gives me a solid 1 & 1/2 day with heavy data usage & calls.
Its really hard to find good accessories like screen guard & phone protector for this phone in India as this was not launched here. In eBay you can find some sellers.

Nels, 28 Nov 2012where i will buy this mobile please help meAmazon or ebay
I have been using this phone for the past one week.
I have upgraded it to ICS 4.0.4
The battery life is satisfying even with heavy usage.
It lasts a day long.
I don't think rooting with any custom ROM is really necessary for this phone when you upgrade it with the stock ICS, coz it gives out it's ultimate performance.
Another thing I came through was that the adreno 220 GPU in this device is very powerful than that of Galaxy S3's Mali 400.(I had it compared and the results was awesome)
Low audio quality.(rear speaker is not very loud)
Network works fine.
Overall good budget phone!

deepak, 11 Nov 2012You can switch network with widgetsoid without any issues. dont afraid.You cannot move to '3G/WCDMA only' option with widgetsoid. You have to use secret code revealer.
Sree, 24 Oct 2012After purchasing this handset i am going to post/share some of my experiences of the phone: ... morei have heard that upgrading the phone to ICS has some issues in selecting networks like 4G/3G/2G i mean if selecting one you cannot migrate to anyother option.
