I don't think this phone is LTE. If you look at specs on AT&T's site it just says HSPA+.
it is LTE! but the phone is already outdated! i getting Galaxy Nexus!
Ok this is confusing as AT&T is announcing the launch of the Galaxy II Skyrocket with true LTE but right now you can shop online for the Galaxy II from AT&T and the specs only say HSPA+. Maybe the Skrocket is defferent and launching on the 6th?

What's with these long names for phones?

Samsung Galaxy S 2 Skyrocket? Samsung Epic 4G Touch? It's not the size of the phones name that counts, it's how you market it.
My understanding is that no matter how strange a name may sound, more people will remember it better than a number series which is what many phones used to be.

800x480 on a 4.5" screen???!!!!!

Not a Fail, I have T-Mobile SG2 and it looks awesome. for 800x480 to look bad it has to be like a 7'' screen

I think that's 2 days out of my 30 day return for the Galaxy S II I got... I should check that. I'd be willing to swallow the restock fee and extra $50 for it.
