Design and specs

While inoffensive to gaze upon, the Pantech Breakout is an average slug of black pebbled plastic with a pair of metal accents. It's got a totally decent 4-inch touch screen, a 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture, and a front-facing VGA camera.

Camera quality

Unfortunately, the front-facing camera took out-of-focus, grainy photos; the video camera produced jerky playback; and the main camera exhibited inconvenient shutter lag.
