Review: Pantech Flex for AT&T
Unfortunately, the Pantech Flex is a bit hit-or-miss. It's some of the best hardware I've seen from Pantech, and I really like the usability of the phone itself. It appears, however, that slimming all the components down to fit inside the attractive 7.9mm body had an effect on the device's performance across the board.
Signal, voice, and data performance were all middle-of-the-road, but battery performance was a hair weak for this class of device. The performance of the user interface was quick, but crashy. The communications tools offered no surprises.
The music and video-consumption powers are just fine, but the camera rates poorly. The dual-mode user interface is a neat idea, but I'm not sure how many people will bother with the stripped-down version of Ice Cream Sandwich. Too many of the best features are missing.

Even for $50, it's hard to recommend the Pantech Flex. There are at least 10 devices in the $50 price range at AT&T that offer better performance than — if not the svelte good looks of — the Flex.
