Pantech Matrix Review


The Matrix's $80 price tag makes it hard to knock this phone for what it is.

Pantech Matrix C740 (AT&T)


The Pantech Matrix C740 for AT&T uses its dual-slide form to easily pivot between talking and messaging modes.

User-friendly dual-slide design. Very bright screen. Excellent battery life.

Basic IM and e-mail clients. Slippery QWERTY keypad can be difficult to type on.

Pantech Matrix review


Pantech pioneered the dual-slider handset design in North America with the Helio Ocean , which could slide vertically to reveal a number keypad and slide horizontally to reveal a QWERTY keyboard. The company also introduced the Pantech Duo , a Windows...

The Pantech Matrix slides both ways to reveal both a number keypad and a QWERTY keyboard. It has a megapixel camera, HSDPA, A-GPS, and access to AT&T's broadband services.

The Pantech Matrix suffers from tiny navigation keys and a flat keypad. The handset is also on the bulky side.

The Pantech Matrix is a pretty good dual-sliding multimedia handset, but we just weren't pleased with the keypad design.

Pantech Matrix C740: Unique Dual Slider


While the Pantech Duo has taken the smartphone route, the quick-messaging Pantech Matrix C740 is a cell phone that packs the same dual-sliding, double-keypad design.

I have had this phone for a while and have come to really like it. The QWERTY keyboard is really easy to use and I don't feel this phone is heavy or bulky at all. The battery life is very good unless you talk for over an hour or have an application...
