Conclusion: Like every other Android device on the market, you have to manage data and power consumption. There are a number of widgets and apps available in the Android Market to help you do that. But even at that, I found myself charging this beauty an average of 3-4 times a day.

Pros: Amazing rich and vibrant display, super responsive performance, speedy web browsing experience, bundled with plenty of useful widgets and apps, excellent camera, super thin an lightweight form-factor
Cons: No white version available for AT&T, display might be too large for some hands
Summary: With its beautiful display, excellent camera, and super-fast 4G LTE speeds, the Skyrocket is a fantastic Android phone and our top pick for AT&T customers. While its large size may give those with small hands pause, we love its slim profile.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy S II is by far the most hyped device so far this year. I mean who wouldn’t get hyped up over a 4.3″ Super AMOLED + display, 1.2GHz Dual-Core CPU and Quadband 3G supporting every network in Australia at the proper HSPA+ speed of 21Mbit.
Pros: Insanely good 4.3″ Super AMOLED + display, Snappy 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, Incredibly thin at 8.49mm, Ability to shoot semi-legible, Quadband HSPA+ (21Mbit/7.56Mbit) – Works on
Cons: Kies syncing software for your PC, Fairly average loudspeaker, TouchWiz, even though it does the job, is too iPhone-ish, No notification LED!!1! *angry face*, No native micro-HDMI connection
Pros: The 1.2 GHz dual-core processor provides standout performance — apps open and close quickly, transitions are smooth and gameplay is great. One of the better smartphone cameras. Big screen is fantastic for games and videos.
Cons: Battery life is a drag. Onscreen keyboard is difficult to type on in portrait mode. Will go in a pocket, but doesn’t exactly “fit” in a pocket. Badly in need of a nickname.
