The fastest Symbian smartphone on the planet?

As you'll have been aware, HyperX and his team have been pumping out various Samsung i8910 HD 'alternative' firmware updates for many months now. 'HX6-Speed', released today in 'Public beta' form, effectively gives you the fastest Symbian touchscreen experience available - at least until the Nokia N8 arrives to challenge. There's a feature summary below, plus links and other comments.

Read on in the full article.

So how much "faster" is it in Turbo mode?

more than 720 Mhz of the Vivaz?

Or "faster" due to the stripping of the environments?

Everytime i read an article on symbian 5th Edition phones at AAS, it makes me feel really proud.

I think the main reason that these Cooked firmwares are being promoted is because they are so much better than the official ones from Samsung. The main issue with official firmwares is the lack of free C: space due to the installation of an excessive number of unnecessary applications / widgets / media files. Cookers can make the phone vastly more usable by just removing this 'junk', but many make significant tweaks such as fixing the FPS of the camera, improving the UI speed and other notable upgrades.

When I bought the device I was excited but let down by Samsung big time. I had many doubts about using cooked firmwares too, mainly due to the "disclaimers" which said that it can ruin the phone permanently. I must thank Samsung for pushing me off the edge into the world of cooked firmwares, its only their pathetic service and don't-care-attitude that I gave cooked firmwares a try. And, I am delighted!
Andy is not only technically genius but also knows how to keep his customers on the edge of their seats. It's a surprise how keeps the releases so frequent and of high quality. Kudos
