The Pantech Perception from Verizon is a good, midtier Android smartphone. First off, let's point out the most obvious draw- the price tag: the Pantech Perception is a pretty impressive phone for it's price of only $99.99.

However, the Perception is a Verizon exclusive smartphone and users would have to switch contracts if they wanted to use this new phone. Designed to react to motion, users can answer phone calls, scroll through contacts and change their playlist by swiping their hand over the screen. The Perception also offers a wide 4.8" HD screen with 1280×720 pixel resolution for superior density in brightness and colors, as well as an 8 megapixel camera and 2 megapixel front camera. The Pantech Perception also boasts a very long battery life compared to other smartphones on the market. The Pantech Perception is runs Android so users can download a plethora of apps available on Google Play.

Unfortunately it's not all sunshine and butterflies for the Pantech Perception. The camera is not great and the device is rather large, that can either be good or bad. Some people like big phones, some might find this one to be a bit bulky however, at 5.2 inches tall by 2.7 inches wide.

Pantech Perception is a good base phone for those looking for a standard Android 4.0 smartphone with the basic features, and those who do not have any intention of breaking the bank. The worst feature on the phone by far is the camera, so if that is your least priority on a smartphone, this may be a good, affordable option.
