The Pantech Vybe is a decent messaging phone, but there's just so little new here that I don't understand its place in AT&T's lineup. It's almost the same phone as the Pantech Renue, and I'd probably get the Renue instead for its eco-friendly, more durable build and slightly better call quality...

Cnet

The Vybe is a competitively priced device that'll please messaging enthusiasts and smartphone neophytes who don't want high-end features.

The Pantech Vybe is a decent messaging phone, but there's just so little new here that I don't understand its place in AT&T's lineup. It's almost the same phone as the Pantech Renue, and I'd probably get the Renue instead for its eco-friendly, more durable build and slightly better call quality (though the Vybe has a somewhat sharper display). If you must have a keyboard, your only other option is the LG Xpression 2, which we haven't tested yet, but looks similar feature-wise to the Pantech devices.
