The Pantech Burst may not have the gee-whiz factor of some of the flashier recent smartphones, but it generally performs well and it's hard to ignore the bargain price. It's a good size, the screen is sharp, battery life is excellent, and performance is relatively snappy, though the camera was somewhat disappointing. While I did experience some major voice quality issues, data performance was excellent and you may not experience any issues if AT&T's network is strong in your area.
If you're looking for a new smartphone to show off and impress your friends and family, the Burst isn't for you -- but if you just want a good smartphone and you don't have a lot of cash, the Burst is worthy of consideration. Just make sure that either you're an introvert who never talks on the phone (preferring instead to text and email) or that you have excellent network coverage in your area first, so that the voice quality issues won't be a problem for you.
