Pantech Vega No.5
A tablet & smartphone hybrid
After both smartphones and tablets outlined themselves on the market, we started wondering how much time it will have to pass until these two devices would mold together in one and how will look the test performed for a review. And indeed, it did not pass much. Pantech Vega No.5 is a ramp between a smartphone and a tablet, to be more specific, what it is called a tablet phone. Situated in the dimension limits of a smartphone, this new device has it all, and once it will be available worldwide, everyone will want it.
Powered by Android 2.3.3
To make an idea of what the new Pantech Vega No.5 tablet phone is, we will describe it carefully. The Pantech Vega is running an Android 2.3.3 OS and has a 5 inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480. It is impressing slim and discreet in your pocket, with a glossy appearance. It is powered by a Qualcomm dual Core 1.5 GHz MSM8660 CPU and enjoys 1GB of DDR2 RAM. Only with these specification uncovered, try to imagine how a game would feel like on this smart toy. It also has a 8 megapixel camera, capable to shoot high quality Full HD 1080p videos, videos that you can keep in the 16GB of internal storage. The capacitive processor and high resolution screen deliver great videos that run smooth, with bright, true colors. What is more, web browsing and eBook reading is not tiring with the 5 inch display, because it offers a netbook like resolution of 800x 480.
8 megapixel camera
It runs very fast thanks to all it is equipped with and delivers ultimate experiences out of all it can do. Concerning the connectivity, the Vega No.5 supports WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, WiFi Hotspot, Bluetooth and HSDPA 3G.
This phone is a can- do -it-all, but judging by the looks, it has a very feminine appearance, with all the shiny aspect and all. Of course, we don’t say that men can’t have it, because of the posh look, but when you see it, you’re given the impression that it’s a women accessory.
The Vega No.5 smartphone has been launched in two color, black and white. On the front, down centered is written the logo, and it is given a solid look because of the metal frame that surrounds it.
Good quality overall
On the back, down low is the Google logo and in the center, bigger, the “Sky” logo appears again. Above it, you can find a metal made circle that hosts the amazing 8 megapixel camera. Removing the flexible back cover you can find the 1930 mAh battery, with a good life in our tests performed for this review. If you want to use it while driving, the Pantech Vega No.5 has a mode that uses only 8 icons on the screen, so it can be easily accessed. The general impression that this tablet phones gives is very good. It is big enough to enjoy quality movies and games and also small enough to carry it around without taking too much of your space.
We enjoyed a good experience of E-book reading and video watching, as well as playing, without finding anything to complain about the new Pantech Vega No.5. The 8 megapixel camera and the Qualcomm MSM8660 with a dual Core processor at 1.5GHz are it’s main and most useful features, which makes it quite exquisite.
