Review: Pantech Breakout for Verizon Wireless
The Pantech Breakout's camera registers 5 megapixels. As it lacks a flash, it's somewhat limited when it comes to indoor photography. I found most images had excellent focus and good white balance. Colors were also accurate. I did see some problems, however. Exposure was inconsistent, and the camera didn't like unbalanced lighting situations, such as dark shadows or bright windows in the background. Details in these instances were totally lost. The other problem I noticed was grain. It marred many of my indoor shots, though outside it wasn't as much of an issue.
Bottom line, the Pantech Breakout takes reasonably good photos, but the inconsistency bugs me. The best shots will certainly be Facebook-worthy.

Video performance falls mostly in line with still image performance. The Pantech Breakout can capture video at a maximum of 720p HD. While focus, colors, and white balance are all spot-on, the video also had trouble handling extreme lighting conditions and was speckled with more grain than I care to see. The best results are obtained when the Breakout is used to shoot video outside in good sunlight (as with most phones). It's much more difficult to obtain good results when indoors.
