Aaron takes an in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, one of AT&T's two initial 4G LTE devices. Complete with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 8-megapixel shooter with 1080p HD recording capabilities, a front-facing camera for video calling, and Android 2.3.5 with TouchWiz 4.0, it's ready to get down to business on the carrier's new network. It's available now for $249.99, $50 more than the HTC Vivid, another 4G LTE device.
It has a nice feature set, but it comes just before the HTC Rezound, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and a bunch of other hot holiday Android phones. Is it worth buying now, or should you wait and see what the season has in store? Part 1 of 2.
