Considering the Pantech Ease is admittedly designed for an older crowd looking for a simple device that is easy to use without squinting or precise aiming, Pantech gets a lot right, but misses a few key opportunities. The hardware is well designed without looking too much like a business phone. The hardware keys are easy to use without looking big and goofy. Many phones aimed at an older crowd can look like children's phones, like the Jitterbug devices. The Ease is equally appealing to any crowd looking for a simple messaging device.

The interface is also well designed in the Easy Mode. It's simpler, with large buttons and fewer, unnecessary options. It might be missing out on some key features, like the Social Net app and the music player, but most of the stuff that's important is available with a simple tap. I also like that the Easy Mode relies more on taps than swiping gestures, since the screen is better suited for this sort of interface navigation.

Pantech has been relentless in pushing handset after handset out of its doors as AT&T holds an eclectic mix of quick messaging devices from the manufacturer. Design might not be one of its highlights as it's more focused on functionality to both the younger and older generations, but fortunately the Pantech Ease manages to find a common balance. Youthful individuals will like its combination touchscreen and QWERTY form factor as it hold a decent mix of features for them, but at the same time, the easy mode is straightforward enough for older adults. In the end, the Pantech Ease continues in being a decent offering that won't be too much of a burden when it comes down to purchasing it – while functioning properly like other quick messaging phones.
