  • Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket review: Aiming for the stars
    GSMArena team

    Verdict: The Skyrocket stays faithful to the Galaxy S II line, offering the same (or better) performance and an identical user experience.  AT&T still needs to work on its LTE network, but with a fast handoff and fast HSPA network speeds to fall back...
