Firstly I'd like to say thanks because I learned a bunch from these forums and others like it. So I got a Vortex for christmas, having never before owned a smartphone or any mobile device aside from a pink moto razr. Love it so far. Was able to root it, clean up Bing/bloatware, default search to google, and set it to a powersave profile with SetCPU. The battery life is impressive. Like I said, never had a device like this before so it's hard for me to compare it to any of the others, but so far it's been awesome. Everything just works and was super easy to figure out. Looks good, feels good in your hand, the buttons feel right. It took me a day or two of fiddling with it to get everything set how I want, but now it does everything I want it to.
