This one is mainly for the English readers.
The company Pantech has been pushing out midrange phones on the English market for a while and the majority of them can be described as mediocre. This one breaks that stereotype with its specifications and what it has under the hood.
The Pantech Flex deserves its name because of the software that it has inside. To be precise, it works on Android 4.0.4 that can be boot up in an easy mode – made for people with less understanding of modern Android usage and a standard mode that is more or less as any other Android software.

Nokia hasn’t been mentioned for a while now and that is because of their mistakes, which are lining up one after the other. They went from being the ultimate leader falling just behind Mac, to the ultimate loser. They fired more than 2/3 of their staff; closed a lot of factories and still they cannot get on top, even though they make some of the sturdiest phones and have a lot of innovations in their closet. They kept banging at the door with their own operating system, even though everyone has moved on.
This time again, they are trying to go on to the market with Microsoft beneath their wings. Continue reading
