Background On The Breeze 3
Pantech may not be the first name that springs to mind when we talk about mobile devices. But, the South Korean-based maker is a big deal in their own country and has released selected models in the US over the years. Such a big deal, they in fact are, that Samsung have taken part ownership of the company. The Pantech Breeze 3 is a flip-top (clamshell, if you prefer) phone. It foregoes some of the thrills and bling that is now commonplace with phones from Apple, Samsung and the rest. That doesn’t mean the Breeze 3 is a substandard phone. It just means that it is a phone and not a mini social media-oriented computer.
What It Does and Doesn’t Do – Pantech Breeze 3
It doesn’t let you run an office whilst you’re at a red light. It won’t let you join the latest bout of faux outrage on Twitter. Neither will it let you watch box sets on Netflix. It isn’t a flotation device and it doesn’t make coffee. The last two, granted, would be pretty be useful, but the Breeze 3 is a phone and a pretty excellent one at that.
What it does do, apart from allow you to make calls and send/receive texts is expand the memory to 32GB, add Bluetooth headphones and record audio and video. It will send and receive emails, browse the web and more. All in all, it’s actually not so far removed from smartphones that can do all things the Breeze 3 can’t. Yet the Breeze 3 stakes its claim on the communications aspect of owning a modern day cellphone, rather than the peripheral stuff that used to need a computer.
If we say there’s no 4G capability on the Breeze 3, it might make you wonder why. The fact is that, because of the way it handles data over 3G, it frees you from the often crazy costs of mandatory data plans from the major carriers. 3G doesn’t need a data plan to do everything it can do and although there will be a compromise on transfer speed, because the Breeze 3 isn’t trying to be something it isn’t, the actual volume of information being transferred isn’t anywhere near 4G levels. This makes perceived speed reductions much less obvious than you might think.

Is The Pantech Breeze 3 Right For You?
In recent surveys, 40% of consumers said they were sick of having to use – and pay for – smartphones that had tons of features they’d never use. They just wanted “a phone”.
The Breeze 3 fits that role perfectly, specializing in calls and texts first and foremost. There’s emails if you want or need to stay in touch and other features that take it a step further but which needn’t be used if you don’t wish to. It has a great battery life and a rather small physical footprint so there is no need to take it out of your pocket every time you want to sit down.
Like we said, it won’t make your coffee. However it will simplify your communications to a level that will suit far more people than are willing to admit it for fear of looking “uncool”. If you don’t care about such things, than have a look at one of the most sensible mobile devices around. You will start to wonder why you ever tried to do less with more.
Leave the smartphone measuring to those with the insecurities to need it and do the sensible thing. Get a phone that looks, acts and performs like a phone.
