Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

The Pantech Pocket runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.

Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

The Pocket also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it January 22, 2012
By Gil
I actually spotted this phone by accident while my wife and I were in the process of geting new ones, which happened to be Blackberry Torches. However, our new phones were already programmed and wrapped up for us, so it was too late. I TRIED in earnest to like my BB, but I found it to be cumbersome heavy, complicated and simply a bear to use, especially for texting. My wife loves hers, but I decided to go ahead and exchange mine for the Pantech pocket a week and a half later. I had never owned a pantech device before, but have looked at a few of their models over the last few years. However, none have impressed me as much as the Pocket. So far, I am very delighted with this phone.

One thing about this particular model is that it is BIG and has a screen to boot. I read negative reviews about the size of this phone and that's understandable. Nonetheless, I did not find it too terribly big and in fact, it fits in my hand perfectly. The biggest attraction is that it is a simple phone to use, yet just the right amount of apps to keep one happy. If you are looking for a blow your socks off phone, this will not do that. However, if you are looking for a "gateway" device that will accustom you to the smartphone, then this is it. Texting and surfing the web on this phone is a breeze.

Surprisingly, the battery has held up for a couple of days given the size of this phone.

The reviewer "Beach" above provided remarkable technical details, so i won't go on about that.

I believe there is a phone for everyone, and the Pocket is definitely for me.

The Pantech Pocket it a pretty good phone,with sturdy construction and it's screen has a unique aspect ratio. I should clarify that it's unique for Android handsets, but it has the same ratio has an iPhone, but with a larger screen!

It's great for browsing the internet and reading e-books. The screen does not hurt the eyes!

If you're a reader looking for a budget phone and don't want to spend the cash on an e-reader, then this is a good option. AT&T is selling this for $0.99 on a 2-year contract. Yep, 99 cents!

For people interested in getting their first smartphone, The Pantech Pocket is a good choice. It runs on Android, so you have access to the Android Market (with tons of free apps!) and remember that Amazon has their own app market! The Pantech Pocket has a very durable construction and feels very secure in one's hand.

I do have a problem with Amazon's listing, it claims the Pantech Pocket has a dual-core processor, it doesn't, Amazon is lying about that specification. It's a single core running at 1 Ghz. Amazon, please do not lie about phone specs, it's false-advertising.

The Pantech Pocket still has more than enough processing power for most people, especially first time smartphone users.

For anyone that would prefer a durable basic Android smartphone, and likes to read books or the internet, the Pantech Pocket is good choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice size phone December 11, 2011
By Beach
Finally found one of these at the aT&T store to mess with today. I looked around the store to see if they had one on demo and its 4:3 screen made it very easy to spot. For texting and replying to email it flys. I had no problem banging out complicated words on the screen with no mistakes and I would not hesitate to reply to emails which may require more words than a simple text message reply. Surfing the internet was a snap and reading text heavy content was excellent with the phone, because if felt like reading a book with the screen shape. I watched some wide format Youtube video on it which had a clear picture and letterboxed the video in the screen. Yes it did have a black bar top and bottom, but as I said picture was clear. The camera gets bashed a bit in some reviews, so I tested it out and found it does lag with the AF turned on. I currently have a EVO 4G and turned off the AF with no problems. I tried the same thing with the pocket and the phone does take photos faster. I don't see this as a problem because I have survived many vacations with fixed focus cameras that took photos which were good enough and the AF and Macro modes are still there if needed. Not DSLR quality but that is OK. The camcorder takes Ok videos set at 800x480 which is my preference. The phone zipped along quite nicely the whole time I was using it and I did not experience any slow downs. I did not make a call on the phone, so I cannot comment on call quality which I have read is acceptable.
The shape of the phone does make it wider. I did not have a problem holding the phone to my ear because it has a dimpled texture all the way around. I am a guy, but I don't have huge hands.
If you are looking for the latest 15 core super ultra amoledified+ HD screened phone with a camera quality lense this is not it.

1.0 out of 5 stars calling issues March 12, 2012
By lnwolfs
I had my first Pocket for 4 weeks and it started to malfunction when placing and receiving calls. The person on the other end of the line could not hear me. It was dead silence. The other issue was that on occasion when taking a call the screen would go black and there would be no way to disconnect from the call or answer the call, depending on when the screen went out. I was given a brand new replacement Pocket and it worked fine for 3 days and then started having the very same issues. My service provider then tried to give me another replacement Pocket, but I insisted on a different model altogether.
