AT&T and Pantech hit all the right chords with the Pantech Burst, a $50 Android Gingerbread phone equipped with some high-end features that may surprise you, starting with the 4-inch Super AMOLED screen.

Android 2.3 Gingerbread lays the base, but Pantech has added its own customary interface on top. It flavors, among other things, this six-directional lock screen.

One of my favorite features of the Burst is its design. The back (your choice of a rich red or titanium) has striations suggestive of lacquered wood grain veneer, and sharp ridges that stand out from the crowd.

The contouring also includes black portions of the spine that are reminiscent of a tuxedo.

The 5-megapixel camera took excellent shots for its image size, as did the 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

The Burst was able to keep a wide field of focus and pick up a good amount of detail for its 5 megapixels. Colors were bright without being overly saturated. Note that all photos were taken in automatic mode and have been resized. They are otherwise untouched.

If you find a typo, blame this girl and her team. While the picture could be a little sharper, but considering that she's illuminated from above with artificial lights and from behind with the cold glow of her monitor, I'm pretty pleased with the color reproduction.

Rich colors are key here, and the field of focus isn't half bad.

There's a bit of an unattractive brown cast to this indoor studio shot, which isn't so nice.
