Review: Pantech Pursuit
The Pantech Pursuit uses a resistive touchscreen. Though I'm usually not a fan of the technology since it's less amenable to fingertips, the Pursuit was surprisingly responsive to the touch. The phone uses a three panel system for the homescreen and the menus, and it was easy to control the sliding action. Even the tiny buttons in the camera app were easy to tap on the first try. This was the first sign for me that the Pursuit was a better-than-average phone. While much more expensive smartphones - like the LG Fathom I reviewed recently - tend to earn a failing grade on resistive touch sensitivity, the Pursuit rarely gave me any trouble. A few times the idle screen, the middle home screen wouldn't respond at all to my swipes. But when it perked up again, it worked perfectly with no delay. I'm guessing that's a software problem, and not a symptom of the touchscreen.

Review: Coolpad Defiant for T-Mobile
Coolpad's low-cost Defiant is an entry-level device sold by T-Mobile. Some aspects of this Android handset are great, but it is held back by some egregious missteps.

Review: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge for AT&T
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of the more interesting smartphones to reach the market this year. It offers excellent build quality, an impressive feature set, and unique curved glass.
Review: LG G4 for AT&T
AT&T's variant of the LG G4 does little more than trade one set of bloatware for another. The performance is about on-par with Verizon's model, which is to say this Android phone does a really good job.
