Review: Pantech Breeze IV for AT&T
The Pantech Breeze IV is a fine little phone, but definitely has some limitations. It's hard to ask for much more from the hardware itself. The B4 is an inexpensive flip phone, which means we can't expect the world. The hardware works well enough for anyone considering a flip phone, though I wish it were easier to get at the memory card slot.
When it comes to actual performance, the Breeze IV is rather weak. Calls aren't loud enough by far, signal performance was mixed, and battery life was disappointing. These are offset by the great screen, and easily customized menus. The software is a cinch to figure out, but doesn't offer much in the way of advanced features. Sure, you can listen to music, surf the web, and take pictures, but none of these are very satisfying as realized on the Breeze IV.
For older people who need an AT&T device that offers adjustable fonts, simpler menus, and the slow speech tool, the Breeze IV may fit the bill. But if voice and battery performance are paramount, this Pantech doesn't cut it.
