Excerpt: Aaron takes an in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket , one of AT&T's two initial 4G LTE devices. Complete with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 8-megapixel shooter with 1080p HD recording capabilities, a front-facing camera for video calling, and...
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket is an excellent smartphone. If you're in an LTE area and are in the market for a new phone, go get one. The Super AMOLED Plus display is livin' large here, and we enjoy it despite the old school resolution.
Pros: Extremely fast LTE speeds, colorful display, good battery life by LTE standards.
Cons: AT&T's LTE coverage footprint is in its infancy, 800 x 480 resolution is getting old.
Summary: Not too long ago, we took an in-depth, hands-on look at the unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. At the time, the phone wasn't available in the US, so we weren't able to show you a hands-on video of a US version of the phone.
Pros: 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, Thin, Lightweight
Excerpt: The question every manufacturer of a non-Apple smartphone on AT&T has to answer is “why buy this over an iPhone?” For Samsung and most other Android handset makers, the answer is a big, bright screen, fast speeds, and all the Google integration you could want.
Pros: Big, vibrant Super AMOLED Plus display, Super fast processor, Solid camera
Cons: Display resolution is too low, "4G" speeds are very slow, Body feels cheap and breakable
Conclusion: If you’re wedded to Sprint and need a new phone, or are moving to Sprint, you have several excellent options. If you don’t care about the operating system, then the HTC EVO 3D, the Motorola Photon 4G, the iPhone 4S, and the GSII are all incredibly capable devices.
Pros: Gorgeous Super AMOLED Plus display, Incredibly light, Very good battery life, Screaming fast processor
Cons: Resolution is low for such a large screen, TouchWiz is uninspiring
Excerpt: Samsung's Galaxy S II smartphone debuted in the U.S. with Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile in September and we finally got our hands on a review sample. The Samsung smartphone runs on Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" operating system and includes an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video, front facing 2 MP...
Conclusion: If you are on T-Mobile and want the best phone available, if comes down to the Galaxy S II or the Amaze 4G. Both are comparable. It comes down to your preference of design and UI. I can’t imagine anybody buying a Galaxy S II and not being happy with it.
Excerpt: The third and last US-bound Samsung Galaxy S II is here! Aaron reviews T-Mobile's flavor of the popular Android handset, and while it bears the same name as the international sensation, it offers some unique specifications that differentiate it.
