Galaxy Note 2 Competition Continue to Heat Up: Pantech Vega R3 Quad-Core Phablet

Vega R3

Pantech isn’t the biggest name around, but they still manage to pull off a reasonably powerful device very so often. Pantech has now announced such a device, the Vega R3. The new Vega R3 is another member of the growing group known as “phablets”.

This phablet manages a 5.3-inch HD screen, Android 4.0.4 and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 PRO processor. Other specs include Bluetooth 4.0, a 13MP rear camera, 2MP front cam, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory and a 2600 mAh battery.

The Pantech Vega R3 is about as close to a direct competitor against the Note 2 as you will find. The R3 certainly seems to be in a league of its own when compared against the upcoming LG Vu 2.

Phablets aren’t for everyone. Those who like physically talking on their phone without a bluetooth headset probably aren’t going to enjoy using a phablet. On the other hand, phablets are almost perfect for those that use a bluetooth headset the vast majority of the time. Phablets are also ideal for those that do a substantial amount of reading or game playing and other uses that require a bigger screen.

What do you think of phablets? Silly crazy, or really a great idea?

  1. this phone made me realize I don’t really like Qualcomm for mobile phones this cycle. :) I mean its a killer phone, with a big ol screen and the s4 pro which has adreno 320 graphics.

    the cpu itself is killer. that quad monster is crazy-powerful. almost pc-ish

    but then I looked up the gpu. adreno 320 is only barely on par with ipad2 or the upcoming mali t604 (the *weakest* gpu upcoming from ARM).

    If you can wait a year it will be worth it, with mali t604s coming early next year and mali 620s-650s probably coming late. The 650 quad core is supposed to run 1.5 times faster than the xbox 360 ..

  2. Smaller screen, lesser battery, no stylus input, but has higher megapixel cameras. Yeah, I see the similarity; They are both rectangular phones. :p
