This Week in Reviews [January 23-27]
The weekend is here — it’s time to sit back, relax, and check out all of the new goodies we reviewed this week. We had the opportunity to take a look at some exciting new products — the powerful-but-inexpensive Pantech Burst, the graphical powerhouse HP Envy 17, and the flashy ASUS N43SL Jay Chou Special Edition — as well as some less-than-stellar releases.
Pantech Burst (AT&T)
AT&T offers a growing selection of smartphones that taps into its superfast 4G LTE network, but the Pantech Burst breaks through by being the first that costs less than $50. This handset doesn't scream "cheap," either. The Burst boasts a bold Super AMOLED screen along with a dual-core processor. Plus, Pantech has added some software enhancements to Android that make the OS more user-friendly. Read on to find out whether this smartphone is as good a value as it seems.
