Review: Pantech Flex for AT&T
Unfortunately, the Pantech Flex is a bit hit-or-miss. It's some of the best hardware I've seen from Pantech, and I really like the usability of the phone itself. It appears, however, that slimming all the components down to fit inside the attractive 7.9mm body had an effect on the device's performance across the board.
Signal, voice, and data performance were all middle-of-the-road, but battery performance was a hair weak for this class of device. The performance of the user interface was quick, but crashy. The communications tools offered no surprises.
The music and video-consumption powers are just fine, but the camera rates poorly. The dual-mode user interface is a neat idea, but I'm not sure how many people will bother with the stripped-down version of Ice Cream Sandwich. Too many of the best features are missing.

Even for $50, it's hard to recommend the Pantech Flex. 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.

Review: OnePlus 6
The OnePlus 6 is the company's latest attempt to convince you that ultra-pricey flagships are unnecessary; why spend $800 to $1000 on a phone when you can get one that's nearly as good for just over $500? The 6 is an attractive metal-and-glass device that has the latest design from OnePlus, the latest specs from Qualcomm and others, and the latest Android software from Google.
Review: Motorola Moto G6 Play

Review: BlackBerry Priv for AT&T
The Priv is the first BlackBerry to ship with Google's Android operating system rather than BlackBerry's own BBOS. BlackBerry opted for Android in order to expand the number of apps available to the phone, but it was sure to install its key messaging and security services to make the Priv more attractive to potential business users.
