(Root,Cwmr,Hacks) Pantech Vega S5

Android General - xda-developers -
Root,Cwmr,Hacks) Pantech Vega S5 (SKY IM-A840S)

Title borrowed from hackarchive to keep things consistent

I bought the pantech Vega Racer S2 (IM-A830L) and received it a few days ago. This was an upgrade from a Dell Streak phone that i was using for some time. This phone is amazing. The touch screen feels responsive, the screen is bright and nice, and most of all, I didn't experience any slowdowns / lags on this device. Everything was buttery smooth.

After 2 days of playing with it, and flashing it, I decided to sell it off, and tomorrow it will be delivered to its new owner. The reason is because, after getting used to a 5" screen device, it is a little hard to getting used to a 4.8" device.

This is where the SKY IM-A840S comes in. A 5" phone, that claims to have eliminated most of it's bezels surrounding the screen. A 13 Megapixel camera is included as well. The rest are more or less the same with the Vega Racer 2 (IM-A830L/K/S)

What do you guys think of this phone?

* There is a rumor that a Quad-Core version will be released, the SKY IM-A850, utilizing the Snapdragon Quad Core S4 Pro with Adreno 320 GPU. Not sure when it will be released though since I heard that the sales for the Vega S5 isn't that good at the moment.
