Pantech Flex Smartphone Features Easy Mode for the Tech Challenged
Not everyone can handle the complicated user interface of a smartphone. Keeping that in mind, AT&T has introduced the 4G LTE Pantech Flex, a smartphone that offers a unique dual experience. One one hand, it runs the full version of Android 4.0 (AKA Ice cream Sandwich). On the other hand, it also offers an “Easy Experience” mode that prioritizes customers’ apps on the home screen in a clearly organized and easy-to-read format.
“The Pantech Flex is a great phone because of its versatility,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices and Developer Services, AT&T Mobility. “This phone simplifies the smartphone experience and allows someone who has been hesitant to buy a smartphone a chance to get familiar with it at their own pace, and still leaves open the possibility of having the more traditional experience.”
Under the hood, the Pantech Flex packs in a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, and an eight-megapixel rear facing camera with 1080p HD video recording, along with a two-megapixel front facing camera. Those specs aren’t too shabby at all, especially for what is being touted as an ideal entry-level smartphone. The device also weighs just 4.6 ounces, and packs in support for AT&T’s high speed 4G LTE network.
The Pantech Flex will retail for just $49.99 with a new contract, starting on September 16th.
