Review: Pantech Perception for Verizon Wireless
Pantech did an admirable job with the Perception. It has a simple but charming design and offers more customization options than most other devices.
The Perception's screen is quite good, call quality is excellent, and battery life is stellar. Though I wish it had a more modern version of Android, the software tools added by Pantech give the Perception plenty to work with. The performance of the software was fine across the board. About the only thing that really bugged me was the weird focusing issue with the camera.
All told, the Pantech Perception is worth well more than its $99 price point.
