Awesome phone.....
I got it recently and I am very excited to use it...
It is better than xperia z.. Galaxy note2...s3 and lg optimus g pro.......

Or a little bit different to Galaxy s4...
1. S4 hd super amoled and iron natural hd ips
2. S4 1080 and iron 720
3. Battery of s4 2600 mah and iron 2150 mah

Basic advantage of this phone..
It is lowest price as compared to s4 in pakistan.........

My phone 3D Mark (11429)


quadrant in 4.1.2 jb (above 12000)

And antutu benchmark (appro. 25000)

I looked this phone Pantech HQ and it is pretty cool in design. If this had come earlier, I would have bought as 5" is better than 5.5" in my hand. Also, its endless metal antenna is good for grip.
Only one I don't like is flash which looks shitty.

Go Pantech.

The reason why Iron did not initially include an 1080p display (which technology IS NOT a barrier), is that, being indiscernible to the naked eye, 720p is more power conscious and could drive the phone faster. I believe, without further energy saving features, 720p is rather a better choice than 1080p except those monster phone (having more than 5") using >3,000 mAh which could only use for merely half a day.

Pantech! You're phone is good enough to compete, except the battery(Atleast 2500+mah), and display (make it 1080p), plus sd slot. Message from gnote 2 user.

For those saying plastic is cheap, their attitude are more than plastic (hypocrite). Time to change your old heavy metal phone, rounded with plastic casing.

it's 720p screen so it will use probably use less power than those 1080p screens plus bigger battery doesn't always mean better battery. Look at the iPhone5. Only 1440mah and it lasts bit longer than the SIII, Optimus 4XHD, OneX, One, Xperia Z and Oppo Find 5 which have capacities greater than 2000 (except the OneX)

Other places (engadget) says this is a 720p screen. Who's right?
