Review: Pantech Marauder for Verizon Wireless
Pantech really did a good job with the Marauder. Perhaps its only real weakness is the camera. The hardware is some of the best I've seen from Pantech, which squeezed a lot of functionality into a slim and pocketable smartphone.
It's also one of the best-performing phones I've seen from Pantech in a long time. It's an excellent voice phone, showed strong network performance, and aside from the slightly-less-than-awesome battery life, is a great communicator.
That's what makes the camera and video camera such a bummer. It's not so bad as to nix the Marauder from your list, but if photography is your primary use for a smartphone, you might want to consider something else.
