Really? Tell me which one of the 10 devices is better.

You lost your credibility with this review when you wrote:

"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."

Really?...tell me which phone in this price range is running ICS with a dual core 1.5 ghz S4 chip and 1GB ram with an 8 mp back cam and 2 mp front cam? Did you bother to run any real performance tests? Nope, you didn't...hint, other sites that did, ranked its performance as comparable to the Samsung Galaxy III and the HTC One (which not surprisingly run the same chipset). So which ones have performance "better than" that are close to $50 on contract? Lets not talk refurbished prices here. Actually, we should be looking at off contract pricing because this is where this phone gets into the "stupid good" category. This phone can be had brand new online for $250, some already available on ebay at that price. Try finding any other new phone with these specs within $100 of that price.

Now lets talk about the "svelte good looks." I personally shopped till I dropped at the AT&T store and handled and operated every smart phone in the place. Only the iphone 5 is more "svelte" (7.6 mm vs. 7.9mm) than the Flex and none, IMO, except for the iphone, feel and look as well built as the Flex. I was shocked.....Pantech?! The operation, in terms of web surfing, game playing and texting, was top flight and the camera and video were more than adequate for me. I think the dismissive tone of your closing comment was WAY off base.
