And the RX that. -- -- -- Four point oh Ice Cream Sandwich on here -- an eight megapixel camera on the back. You've got a one point five gigahertz dual core processors the other thing that's really interesting about this phone -- that there are actually few votes here.

The normal Ice Cream Sandwich interface to be a little too involved -- you've got some -- some. Internet simpler I actually really like the easy experience offered here it does keeping simplified its a lot easier to just gets -- -- -- -- what you want in doing your found. So I do like that there of the two options the one thing that's interesting though. As that these standard Ice Cream Sandwich option seems a little over cluttered mean and even over design.

The phone's physical design is pretty cool I like the color scheme -- lake -- text -- The one thing I don't like so much is the way it feels in the hand it's not quite comfortable feel these edges on the back it seemed to stick out a little bit more than in the front. And so while it's not. Uncomfortable and sharp I wouldn't say -- got a very cousy in him feel. -- also -- some cameras on here there's a front facing camera there's an eight megapixel rear facing camera. But the shutter speed was really slow so a lot of my pictures came out Larry especially objects like move a lot like dogs and babies. And I also thought that the camera intended to be out of focus on areas I was focusing -- -- focusing something in the foreground -- -- more in the background some of the shots taken out really well but.

Looking for a budget Android phone you can pick out from the crowd? The Pantech Pocket's $50 price tag holds the key, and the extra-wide shape and 4G HSPA+ speeds keep things interesting.
The Pantech C120 is a decent choice for anyone seeking an easy-to-use phone for making calls. Frequent users should look elsewhere, however.
With two UI modes for those unfamiliar and familiar with Android, Verizon's Pantech Marauder is a starter 4G LTE handset that's also equipped with a keyboard.
The Pantech PN-218's unique square design and internal screen might appeal to those who do a lot of text messaging, but we did not like the flimsy antenna.
The Pantech Breeze is definitely ideal for seniors and those with disabilities, but it's also an all-around great phone for anyone who wants a decent entry-level handset.
Text messagers with flying fingers will appreciate the Pantech Verse's slide-up QWERTY keyboard and wallet-friendly price.
Although it may look like a smartphone at first glance, the Pantech Hotshot from Verizon is actually a feature phone. Even if you don't need data, its sluggish processor and camera may not make it the best option if you're looking for a solid entry-level phone.
The Pantech C150 is a solid, basic camera phone with impressive call quality and an unbeatable price.
The Pantech C300's minuscule size will be a turnoff for many, but it manages to offer a fair amount of features and decent performance.
The Pocket is Pantech's first-ever 4G Android phone for AT&T. It has an unusually wide 4-inch SVGA display, and it ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 5-megapixel camera.
Pantech Flex (AT&T) Review
The good: For $50, the Pantech Flex has a lot to offer, including LTE, Android 4.0, and an optional mode for first-timers.
The bad: Pantech overdesigned the ICS interface, the 8-megapixel camera stumbles, and no NFC means there's no Android Beam support.
The bottom line: Its bargain price tag will help prospective buyers overlook the Pantech Flex's weaknesses, and those seeking Android Ice Cream Sandwich with training wheels will find its optional easy mode appealing.
