The Pantech Renue is a small handset by today's standards, but you won't have to worry about the messaging phone and its QWERTY keyboard protruding from your pocket.
Messaging is a central task, which makes its keyboard of the utmost importance. Though compact, it was comfortable and well-appointed, even if the keys were a bit flat to my liking. The application icons are large and finger-friendly.
I do like the 3.5 millimeter headset jack on the phone, which makes it music-friendly since you can pop in any standard headset.
The 3-megapixel camera disappoints with blocky photos leached of color. Videos were even worse, with a pixelated playback.
A micro-SIM card joins the battery and microSD card slot beneath the nicely textured back cover.
The Renue measures just under 0.5 inch thick, which isn't bad considering its concealed keyboard. It's fairly heavy for its size, but that translates into durability.
