> In reply to stupid ppl @ 2011-12-15 08:01 from YYgs - click to readBigger Battery 1850 vs. 1650, more screen 4.5", faster CPU and Adreno, more bands, GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSPA+/HSUPA/and LTE Daul for international and North America. It also has a more intuitive front with 4 well placed buttons. Its not fair that Samsung releases so many phones, people get mixed up easily and their new phones are left outdated in a matter of a month of two. But in reality there is little difference. That being said the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE (Skyrocket and Rogers Edition) are better than its predecessor. I'm sure In a couple of months Samsung will make a newer edition better than the SGH-I727R. Thank you.

The skyrocket is definitely superior. The difference in processing speed is insignificant so this brings us to the LTE vs HSPA+ chipsets. That alone puts it ahead of the s2. As far as price, AT&T's data plans are the same price for 3G, HSPA+ or LTE. Personally I would rather have 10x faster data speeds, larger battey, and bigger screen. These are all opinions of course. To me, the skyrocket is the best phone on the market at the moment.

why stupid people here saying Skyrocket is better than s2? Do you really think 1.5Ghz snapdrgon is better than 1.2Ghz Exynox in terms of performance? OF COURSE NOT. Having LTE doesn't mean it is better. LTE only makes you pay more on bill. 3G speed still enough. You are not going to download something outside all day long and if you do, you'll get huge bill.

Had my skyrocket for about 12 hours and I had a i9100 before so I've experienced both galaxys, skyrocket in my opinion is the superior device, not trying to start a debate just letting people know for what I use the phone for it suits me best to roll with this over regular s2

That being said, I did the pen test on mine, and it passed with flying colors. So either it's Gorilla Glass, or Samsung has some strong, no VERY strong, AMOLED Glass on this model.

Well glaas aside,I just wanted to talk about many features I enjoy. First was the immediate Upgrade from Android 2.3.2 to 2.3.6 that I was able to get, from phone updates> settings section. Someone mentioned the 217 vs 207 pxx, however the i727 has much better color then the other model. Also the AMOLED Technology, makes using this so much easier, then my previous phone (Streak 5) While, I do miss the screen real estate
