The Pantech Burst is a new 4G LTE smartphone for AT&T that carries an impressive list of specs for its price point. Sporting a 4-inch, Super AMOLED display, the Burst is said to be powered by a dual-core, 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, though we found out that our review unit is clocked at a faster 1.5GHz speed.
