Pantech Burst Review, I Think Great Phone

The Pantech Burst is a solid value -- a terrific Super AMOLED display, 4G LTE connectivity and a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, all at a budget smartphone price.  It's terrific on the smartphone front; unfortunately, it leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to traditional phone use.
Physically, the Pantech Burst is a very attractive phone.  There are interesting design touches, like the ridges on the back, all of which come together to make for a sweet-looking number.  Really upping the ante on the aesthetic department is the vibrant 4-inch Super AMOLED display, which brings stunning brightness and clarity.
   It weighs just right for handsets of this size, too -- neither too light nor too heavy.
As a phone, performance was split: everything sounded fine on my end, but those I was talking to reported really flat sound.  They can understand what I was saying, but it was far from good.  I can also hear occasional background distortion on my end.  Battery is rated at only 4.5 hours of talk time.
Despite being a budget phone in terms of price, the Burst doesn't really skimp on features.  You get all the usual Android 2.3 Gingerbread fare, from the robust messaging capabilities to the preloaded Google Mobile Services to the full load of connectivity  offerings (4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS).  The 1.5GHz dual-core CPU is quite the powerful beast, so the phone zips through most every app with relative ease.  The catch is, the battery management seems to be poorly-done on the phone, so expect to want to limit your use of your resources in order to conserve battery life.
Thanks to the powerful CPU and Super AMOLED display, the phone plays movies and games admirably.  The 5.0 megapixel camera takes excellent photos and videos -- easily in the same level as the best phone cameras I've tried.
Overall, the Pantech Burst is not perfect, but it's damn good phone and a damn great value.  For $49.99 on a new two-year agreement with AT&T, I'll be willing to overlook the flaws.
