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)

This Skyrocket has an awfully low res screen. Same crap as normal SII. Does not belong in such large screens.

Only 480 x 800 pixels with 4.5 inches (~207 ppi pixel density)??? How lame is that? I saw this phone at the store and it's not sharp at all. Looks like my old Captivate. No thank you, i'll pass.

Hi,

I have a concern about skyrocket. Very short battery strength.....drains faster in weak connection areas or following music or video play. How can it be improved?

one more similar issue of s2 with the update of screen size.but looks similar.
it needs to do some more in audio like i8910.it was a great phone with superb sound quality produce by dual speakers.no one handset can compare with i8910 in audio output quality.placement of the speakers is excellent.one is place on upperside and another on bottomside.in the smartphones it is a very basic demand for good sound quality to listen the music.samsung should update the galaxy in that way also.we hopes they will do it in their next model.since from a very long time i never seen any phone like that in android platform which have the superb sound quality like samsung omnia i8910.if it will be come with same sound properties. definately it would be prove a hit model in galaxy camp.

Need to know what this LTE 700 is and any difference between LTE 1800 or LTE 700 and wjhat does LTE region specific means??
I am just wanting to buy the skyrocket but live in Austrlaia and Telstra has LTE in most of the Metro areas and wondering about the exact LTE band that I should have on phone.

Can some one talk about LTE as it is the latest and most important apatrt from mobile specs..

Cheers

I have had this phone for 3 days now, upgraded from the Captivate. It's crazy fast in comparison. Battery life is great too. I do wish the screen resolution was on par with the newer phones, but there is always next year for me. I'm not in a LTE area but get 8.5Mbps down & 1.1Mbps at my job and 3.2Mbps & 1.1Mbps at home which is good enough. Better than my DSL.
