Skyrockets in flight equals an epic dogfight battle between two 4G LTE devices!  Aaron throws the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and Verizon's Motorola DROID RAZR into the proverbial ring to see which one provides the best balance of features and performance.  AT&T's Skyrocket is the latest member of the Samsung Galaxy S II family and it packs a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, and Android 2.3.6 with TouchWiz 4.0.  The DROID RAZR is an astounding 7.1mm thin and offers a 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display with PenTile, 8-megapixel shooter with 1080p HD video recording, and Android 2.3.5 with Motorola's UI.

The Skyrocket is available for $249.99, while the DROID RAZR can be had for $299.99.  TouchWiz or Motorola's UI?  Verizon 4G LTE or AT&T 4G LTE?  It's a lot to digest, but that's what we're here for!  Part 1 of 2.

Jason Ramos
Jason Ramos @Ethan - totally agree. The only thing SamSUCK has got going for it is Exynos and this phone doesn't even have it due to the fact it doesn't play nice with LTE. The RAZR has a better design, better build quality, better radio, even better resolution. The Skyrocket has 800x480 which looks ridiculous on a 4.5" screen. The RAZR has 960x540.

Ethan Shrago Skyrocket has a snapdragon, razr has a TI OMAP. The skyrocket has TouchWhiz, which I hate... The skyrocket is all plastic. When we think of all this, we think "Why is Samsung #1? What were they thinking?" PEOPLE, Stop buying Samsung's phones, they suck!
