Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket Review

If you are in the market for a new cell phone and feeling a bit overwhelmed, we don’t really blame you. The last phone you purchased most likely couldn’t hold a stick to some of the awesome new features that today’s phones have, not to mention that technology didn’t slow down after you bought you last phone. Two years is like a lifetime in cell phone terms, with several generations of cell phones circulating through service providers — and each cell phone generation has multiple phones with new and different features.

Cell phone technology has seemed to hit hyper speed recently, so if you are a little confused as to how phones went from your little mobile device to a full blown semi-computer with a processor, and a camera that rivals an actual digital camera — not to mention HD video recording — really who wouldn’t be a little bit confused and overwhelmed by the differences in the cell phone market of today. The important thing to realize is that no matter what you are looking for in a new phone, your service provider will have something that either matches or closely resembles exactly what you are looking for, so don’t hesitate, get in the game and get a great new phone.

About The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket

So let’s talk about a great new phone that is one of the top rated smartphones on the market today, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. The Skyrocket is a one of a kind phone, with a 4.5 inch AMOLED screen, not to mention the fact that it comes stock with a 1.5 GHz processor, a NFC chip, and all is supported on the AT&T 4G LTE network. This phone comes standard with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and if you are a camera lover, then this is indefinitely the smartphone for you, with its 8 megapixel camera, 2 megapixel front facing camera, and 1080 p HD video capture — you really just can’t go wrong. Though this phone has quite a few features that reviewers found to be very pleasing, it also has some things that users found to be less appealing.

Are There Negatives?

The Skyrocket uses AT&T’s LTE network, but unfortunately the network was only functional in several different places at the time of the phone’s release, which many people found to be very problematic. Users also complained of the feel, saying that the phone felt cheap and plastic, definitely not made of materials that they would have expected a world class smartphone to be made from. There were also some complaints about users not being able to remove bloatware.

It is certainly not one of the most expensive phones available right now so there will probably be some pretty good deals on mobile contracts.

An AT&T customer for as long as he can remember, Kyle Bennett is a big fan of the Skyrocket and its rapid downloads on a 4G network. He is an expert on mobile phones in the UK.
