Review: Pantech Ease
The touch screen on the Pantech Ease was not the most responsive, not even as finger friendly as the Pantech Pursuit. However, Pantech has wisely played to the strengths of the resistive touch technology. Resistive screens are pressure sensitive, so they respond well to hard taps, not so much to light touches. There is no swiping required on the home screen or in the main menu. Most menu lists keep themselves limited to the screen size. The buttons are large and easy for poking. When I did have to swipe through a list, I noticed some lagging response times, and the phone could incorrectly register a swipe as a simple tap. But in a casual day's use, you might never come across such problems, especially if you won't be using the music player or the Web browser often.
AT&T's new quick messaging phone, the Pantech Pursuit, is an adorable little feature phone with a few cool gimmicks on board to set it apart.
