Review: Pantech Renue for AT&T

There is an app store on the Renue and it’s run by AT&T. It offers an odd assortment of games, entertainment, weather/news, sports, and so on. The selection is limited and you won't find recognizable apps such as Evernote or Fandango. Prices range from free to $4.99.

The Renue supports the typical set of Bluetooth files, including stereo Bluetooth and support for mono headsets and cars. It connected to everything just fine. Phone calls placed through mono headsets were OK, not great. Music sounded decent through stereo Bluetooth speakers, but not awesome. I was able to push files between devices easily, as well.


The lock screen clock can't be changed. It's a sizable digital clock placed right in the center of the display. As long as you have a dark-ish wallpaper, it can easily be read. If you put a lighter picture like Mount Everest on there, you won't see it all that well, especially outdoors. The central home screen panel hosts a clock as well, and that one can be switched around to about a dozen different options.


The Renue includes AT&T's capable Navigator app. It costs $10 to use but is a solid choice for point-to-point directions.
