Review: Pantech Renue for AT&T

Calls

The fastest way to make a phone call is to start with the lockscreen shortcut and launch the phone app. Doing so brings you to the dialer, where you can easily access your contacts and speed dials. Alternately, adding contact shortcuts to the home screen panels is a cinch.

The phone app also provides tools such as a list of recent calls (made, received, missed), and the ability to see most-dialed numbers. As with Android, if you tap the number of a missed call, you open the call log where you have the option to send a message, make a call, add it to the contacts app, and so on. If you tap the little green symbol next to the number in the call log, it automatically calls the number.

Contacts

Each contact holds a pretty decent amount of information, including a handful of phone numbers and email addresses, street address, notes, and so on. AT&T will automatically populate the phone with your contacts if you use the AT&T back-up service (which is free).

When viewing a contact, the app's tools make it a breeze to call them, text, them, see their address on a map, and so on.
