Pantech Breakout (Verizon Wireless)

 

It was only in June that Pantech released its first Android phone for U.S. markets, the Pantech Crossover for AT&T. Just months later, the phone maker is doing it again, this time for Verizon. The Pantech Breakout doesn't take its name lightly. In...

The Pantech Breakout runs on Verizon's 4G LTE network. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is dressed up with a handy custom UI, and the phone has good call quality

The Breakout doesn't have a flash, and it has a poor front-facing camera, jerky video, and shutter lag

If you don't give a whit about the camera or video, the Pantech Breakout is a fast and straightforward Android handset for Verizon.

Pantech Breakout review

 

That pool looks cool and refreshing, and all of the kids are having the time of their lives. Problem is, it's in an exclusive club, leaving you to

Brings LTE on the cheap ; Durable and easy to grip ; Good performance

Battery life ; Bloatware overload ; Subpar camera

The Pantech Breakout is a decent option for heavy downloaders on a budget.

Pantech Breakout Review [Verizon 4G LTE]

 

Are you ready to breakout from the norm and try a new smartphone by Pantech offering 4G LTE for a low price? If so you'll want to check out the Pantech Breakout. This brand new Verizon 4G LTE Android smartphone comes packed with everything we love...

To sum things up in a very understandable and straight shooter way -- this phone is nice and it has impressed me. It may not have a simple, thin, and elegant design like the Galaxy S II. Nor does it boast a dual-core processor, and the screen isn't...

Pantech Breakout (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Breakout is a dual-band EV-DO Rev A (850/1900 MHz) and 750 MHz 4G LTE device with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. Verizon says to expect download speeds around 5 to 12 Mbps, and upload speeds between 2 and 5 Mbps on its 4G network. The Breakout hit those speeds...

Fast 4G speeds. Solid performance. Terrific talk time. Relatively inexpensive

Mediocre call quality. Below-average camera

If you're looking to tap into Verizon's blazing fast 4G LTE network on a budget, the Pantech Breakout is your best option, although it's strictly a midrange smartphone.

Pantech Breakout Review

 

For those of you keeping count, the Pantech Breakout is now the fifth Android smartphone to be released by Verizon Wireless that runs on the carrier's 4G LTE data network. But unlike the higher-end HTC ThunderBolt, Samsung Droid Charge, LG Revolution,...

Pantech Breakout Review: 4G LTE on a Budget

 

The Pantech has a relatively basic design. With a 4-inch screen and no added frills (like a keyboard), it will be very familiar to anyone who's ever used a touchscreen-only device. The only non-touchscreen controls beyond the basics are the four...

Inexpensive ; 4G capable ; 8 GB of memory pre-loaded

Battery life with 4G is marginal

A nice if not particularly remarkable basic smartphone that will serve an entry-level user's needs straight out of the box

Pantech Breakout Review

 

Verizon has been busy ramping up their 4G LTE network over the past months, we have watched the expansion, and seen a few devices release to take advantage of it. To this point you had to shell out ...

The Pantech Breakout offers users a great mid level experience, while we have yet to see root or anything of that nature achieved on the device, and while not for everyone the device should not be written off and overlooked. For many who are not...
