The Pantech Matrix has a basic amount of features and extras. Its most basic features include a 1,000 entry phonebook, speakerphone, SMS and MMS messaging, calendar, notepad, voice memo and calculator. The phone comes preloaded with the Media Net for browsing the web, AT&T's GPS navigator and a Media Mall for browsing and purchasing media. Instant Messaging is also supported with such mail boxes as Yahoo!, Windows Live and AIM.
Unfortunately, the Pantech Matrix has a short list of approved mailing contacts which can be synced with the phone. Users with multiple e-mail addresses may not find the phone very useful as a result.
The Matrix's camera is a modest 1.3 megapixel resolution which creates decent pictures but not great ones. Photos experience a viewable level of digital noise or a grainy and old appearance. Indoor photographs purely depend on lighting but mostly turn out pale and washed out. Low light produces blurry and dark images. Outdoor photographs will perhaps be the best way to utilize the Matrix's camera function as there is a greater chance for photographs to come out with good detail and bright, accurate colors.
The Pantech Matrix has a decent music player. The AT&T music player is very simple and easy to manipulate. To access the application users can use either the dedicated music button located on the face of the device or go through the menu's options. Media files can be organized in several ways from artist name, to album title, genre of music and user defined playlists. After a track or playlist is selected the application displays the song name, artist, album cover and its length. The D-pad can be used to navigate through the song by fast-forwarding, rewinding or pausing it altogether. Video files can also be played on the Pantech Matrix although some users may find the screen size to be a tad too small for an enjoyable view.
