Pantech Burst (AT&T) Video Transcript
$50 LTE phones don't come around everyday. So when we see one, we really like to take a look. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for Cnet. This is the Pantech Burst. A new phone for AT&T. First, take a look at this at the CES and I have to say, there's a lot to like about it. It's got a 4 inch, super AMOLED screen. Really nice screen. For me, 4 inches is perfect. It makes the size of the phone really easy to hold in my hands. I also really love the design of this phone. Comes in 2 colors. Red here and titanium. It's got these edges that give it more of a unique look and feel. Some of the other specs are pretty good as well. There's a 1.5 gigahertz dual core processor on here. There's a pretty descent 5 megapixel camera on the back and a pretty good 2 megapixel camera on the front too and that's perfect for video chatting. Inside, you've got Android 2.3 gingerbread and it is running Pantech skin on top of it. I find it very easy to navigate. Very Friendly, easy on the eye as well. In addition to that camera, you also have support for 720p HD video which is pretty gratifying specially for a phone that cost only $50. Now the one red flag is the call quality. So far, it's been a little bit hit or miss and it has. sounds a lot better to my ears than it has to anybody else's and the speaker phone was pretty terrible. So maybe this isn't the absolute best phone for somebody who intends to be on it a long time making phonecalls, but if you are going to be using that feature sparingly and you want a very affordable, very all around nice smart phone to use for it's other features, then you should definitely consider the Pantech Burst. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for Cnet. You can read the full review and all other reviews on Cnet.com

Pantech Burst - titanium (AT&T) Review
The good: The Pantech Burst is blessed with 4G LTE, a terrific 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a great 5-megapixel camera, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, interesting design touches, and a sweet $50 price tag.
The bad: The Burst's call quality and speakerphone are disappointing, battery life is so-so, and you'll need a tool or a set of talons to remove the back cover.
The bottom line: At just $50, the feature-rich Pantech Burst packs in more high-end goodies than you'd expect from a budget LTE phone. However, call quality and battery life aren't its strong suits.
