2:56 /

Its bargain price tag will help prospective buyers overlook the Pantech Flex's weaknesses, and those seeking Android Ice Cream Sandwich with training wheels will find its optional easy mode appealing.

Everyone I'm just gonna upward from CNET and this hearing is being -- black AT&T. What's interesting about the other two things really as that this is pantex won their first attempt at a high. And the RX that. -- -- -- Four point oh Ice Cream Sandwich on here -- an eight megapixel camera on the back. You've got a one point five gigahertz dual core processors the other thing that's really interesting about this phone -- that there are actually few votes here. You've got they usual ice -- and management and a new crop but they're calling be easy experience that. And that's really for first timers are really for anybody who finds. The normal Ice Cream Sandwich interface to be a little too involved -- you've got some -- some. Internet simpler I actually really like the easy experience offered here it does keeping simplified its a lot easier to just gets -- -- -- -- what you want in doing your found. So I do like that there of the two options the one thing that's interesting though. As that these standard Ice Cream Sandwich option seems a little over cluttered mean and even over design. And a standard experience. In -- does expose lot of extra menus that you would otherwise. How to crawl around in the settings for. And -- like that that's there but I also think that it makes things a little bit over cluttered. And it makes some of the buttons a little bit smaller and harder to pass I'm not -- -- not doing operating system and he favors. The phone's physical design is pretty cool I like the color scheme -- lake -- text -- The one thing I don't like so much is the way it feels in the hand it's not quite comfortable feel these edges on the back it seemed to stick out a little bit more than in the front. And so while it's not. Uncomfortable and sharp I wouldn't say -- got a very cousy in him feel. -- also -- some cameras on here there's a front facing camera there's an eight megapixel rear facing camera. But the shutter speed was really slow so a lot of my pictures came out Larry especially objects like move a lot like dogs and babies. And I also thought that the camera intended to be out of focus on areas I was focusing -- -- focusing something in the foreground -- -- more in the background some of the shots taken out really well but. I wouldn't it's a very reliable -- However when redeeming quality to the phone -- the price of beer redeeming quality. Because this isn't healthy found describe -- -- point -- on it. It's got that camera and process fast processor and the only fifty dollars AT&T -- but it needs -- -- service agreement. It's I think that this of that. It's a really actually budget on that offer to watch however not everything that it offers its wonderful elected to hold it up -- -- but it can and does. I just evolved where this is sheep camp tech flak for AT&T'S you can read the full overview and -- are.
