Pantech Burst review: AT&T gives a lot for a little

What will $50 get you? If you said the Pantech Burst Android smartphone for AT&T, then quite a lot, actually.

When the top-tier everything-smartphones cost between $200 and $300, I can't blame you for dubiously eying a $50 phone. However, if your budget is top of mind, and Android is where your heart lies, then do yourself a favor and check out the Pantech Burst.

Why? It has 4G LTE, a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a (good) 5-megapixel camera, a front-facing camera, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. Poorer call quality and battery life are the price trade-offs, but if you can live with that, you'll find in the Burst a Gingerbread device that pretty much does it all.

Watch the video, see the photos, and read all the pros and cons in my full Pantech Burst review.
