Review: Pantech Renue for AT&T

The Renue's browser works, but just barely. Everything about it is slow and frustrating. It will display WAP and HTML pages, but rendering them takes a year and a day. (The Renue is capable of max speeds of 3.6Mbps, which means real-world speeds are just over 1Mbps. This thing doesn't even have faux-G, let alone 4G.) The base AT&T-branded bookmarks are littered with traps that lead to accidental content purchases, like wallpapers or ringtones. Don't fall for them. Set your own bookmarks and type in your own URLs and you'll be fine.



The Renue lets you customize select aspects of the device, such as wallpapers, ringtones and such. Being able to put app/contact shortcuts on the home screens is a nice touch. I wish you could do more with the main menu, but the Renue offers a handful of ringer profiles (normal, outdoor, silent, etc.).
