Decided to go for Pantech Burst P9070 because of the following: -

  • Dual-core 1.5 GHz Scorpion
  • Adreno 220
  • CM 10 is being Build
  • 1 GB Memory
  • 16 GB Internal Storage
  • LTE Supported :D (Will never use it so it doesn't matter)

  • 256k colors display
  • Bad Call quality (Read)
  • Battery drain (Read)
  • No Warranty (Doesn't matter)
  • Once Bricked - Can't revive (J tagging works but don't know about it!)

I'll be buying it from ebay.com via ishop International for 7.3k (with 500/- Discount)
Any better alternative? advice?

I think is a nice deal because ironically, we teenagers rarely us a phone as in calling! We just want to enjoy the hardware, Performand and apps. So, I think you should go for it.. Not a bad deal.

  • 256k colors display <--- hardly matters.
  • Bad Call quality (Read) <--- no idea.
  • Battery drain (Read) <--- read HTC DNA or review of LTE packing droids. turning LTE off should more or less solve this problem.
  • Once Bricked - Can't revive (J tagging works but don't know about it!) <--- don't try to flash/update anything official. easiest way to brick an android mobile is when you try to update or use the official flashing software and they fail halfway. same for Sony, Samsung, Motorola, LG, and all other manufacturers.



AWESOME MAN, if it includes customs.
The IMG was hyper linked to the "7.3 w/ discount" BTW
So what do u think, A116 or BURST ?
Hindusthan Motors or Honda?

ASAP in this week or maybe the next week! After 21st March :( (After exams) Will post a Popcorn review ;) (With CROM on it :D - Stock looks ugly) :D
