The latest in Verizon’s LTE collection, the Pantech Breakout defines a new line in the 4G smartphone world. The phone is sleek, stylish, and runs on Verizon’s 4G network for a fraction of the price. The Pantech Breakout has everything you’d expect from a modern smartphone with a few surprising tweaks that will change the face of 4G phones.

The dimensions of the phone itself are relatively small compared to other choices on the market – the screen is just 4 inches. While the smaller screen may seem to tug at its value and demand, this is quite untrue. Because of the smaller screen, the phone is considerably lighter making it a less demanding gadget and more appealing to the masses.

Phone size aside, let’s talk about pricing. How would you like a brand new, full fledged 4G smartphone for $100? With a two year contract from Verizon, the Breakout is yours, as well as the lightning 4G speed of Verizon’s network and the many features that the phone carries. Don’t let the price fool you, the Pantech Breakout lacks nothing when it comes to the features we’ve come to expect and demand from our smartphones.

The Breakout runs on the 2.3 Android operating system, can act as a mobile hotspot for up to ten devices, and is equipped with dual cameras for casual photo taking and video calls. The Breakout certainly didn’t cut any corners when it comes to features. The start up screen and home panel are luxuriously colorful and eye-catching, with plenty of space for Apps and a bar of necessities that have four places reserved for the Phone, Messaging, Contacts and anything else you may call a necessity at the bottom of the screen. When tapping the Apps icon, a visual list of all the phone’s apps pull up, from YouTube, to weather, to tip calculator to news and media, you can pick and choose which apps make it to your home screen, and swap them out when need be.

All in all, the Pantech Breakout is a cheaper, less demanding, and more carefree than it’s sisters on the market. It’s an everyman’s smartphone, not lacking in any of it’s 4G capabilities, but not too much that it’s overwhelming. The Breakout is a relatively new phone, and the hype up to buy one has yet to pick up.  But with the fabulous features that rival more expensive smartphones, customers everywhere will be begging to have one.
