Jellz's review of the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket

original version, submitted Dec 19, 2012, 10:48 AM:

Great phone overall

I've had this phone for over a year now, so I feel a little qualified to speak about it.

Pros:
Screen is very nice at 4.5", with the brightness cranked up it's easy to see clearly outdoors
Fast processor works well for most things
Fast data speeds (around Florida, mainly Orlando, and up to Atlanta once) on the 4G LTE and HSPA+ networks.
Android 4.0 is always a plus
The cameras do just fine for what I need them to do

Cons:
Battery life. It's variable.. some days it lasts all day just fine, others it will heat up some and burn through the battery quickly. I've had days where it was dead by noon with light usage.
Materials. It just feels cheap, especially the flimsy battery cover. I don't like the glossy, cheap plastic feel. That said, I've dropped it a few times (with no case) and it isn't worse for wear except the battery cover wobbling a little bit.
