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

Actually Android 2.3.3 and Iphone 4 are great phones. They are very competitive. Iphone losses to those 4.3" Android phones. Btw, the Galaxy Notes here in SG are still very expensive because they always run out of stock lately. Keep it up Samsung and Android!!! I wonder what will be the out come of IceCreamSandwich. Hope it would be better.

The update locked my Skyrocket into a continual 30 second reboot loop of death. Safe mode didn't work, nor did pulling the battery and SIM card. I went to the AT&T store, mostly to complain, because I knew they would just say, "Do a factory reset." There was another guy right in front of me with same problem.

Now, for every iphone lover, and every android lover, here i am, a 4 year old iphone user/ blackberry. I have finnaly purchased the samsung galaxy s2 lte in canada. and i can now finnaly say i know what all the hype is about. android DESTROYS iphone, it is unbeleivable, many people who critisize android only do because they never got there hands on one....

I am in shock/AMAZE.... this phone does...whatever you want it to, from live wallpapers, to direct google launch, to customizing how strong you want the vibrate to feel, to everything free in the droid market and SO MUCH MORE!

All i can say is, everyone, get the galaxy s2 1.5 ghz dual core, it will blow your mind away and it will also blow the minds of people you show it to. 10/10.

I wonder how i ever thought iphone was the greatest, i apologize android fans for bashing you for these past years. you were right.

it took me like 20 minutes to determine the phone I have and this is it.
why cant samsung call them different things.. this is obviously an s2 but s2 skyrocket is not even mentioned ANYWHERE

no lte in my area but i must say 4g is a bit lax.. the processor makes up for it but my iphone out performs on 4g/3g

lte is "coming soon" ill keep you guy updated ask any questions @douglasjordan on twitter.

This thing must be mad-fast with its 1.5 ghz processor (the high clock is most likely possible because of its size, meaning broader power rails and better heat dissipation) and the adreno 220 GPU which is supposed to be faster at graphics than mali 400, sgx 540, tegra 2 etc., another major boost will be the small resolution of its screen. If i had the chance i`d buy it but it is not out yet here in sweden and i think the price will be way higher than i-9100 s2.

Australia LTE
Telstra LTE on 1800MHz (current) and potentially on 900MHz & 700 MHz & 2600MHz(future)
Optus LTE on 1800MHZ (current) and potentially on 900MHZ & 700MHz & 2600MHz (future)

Vodafone in testing phase.

All 700 & 2600 is pending Gov auctions
900 is waiting for GSM switch off (maybe in 2020)
