Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket I727 16GB AT&T Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Smartphone – Black


Realize the full power of 4G with the Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket smartphone, which runs on AT&T’s new ultra-fast 4G LTE network (learn more below). Combined with the speed of the powerful dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and the Android 2.3 OS, you’ll enjoy enhanced multitasking abilities and smooth game play. Measuring a mere 9.49mm (0.37 inches) at its thinnest from front to back, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket easily it slips in and out of your pocket even with its huge 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus multi-touch display–perfect for immersing yourself in cinema-quality video while on the go. The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread)–the fastest version of Android available for smartphones yet. It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation. Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you’re playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android (“Froyo”), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web. The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions. The Galaxy S II Skyrocket also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you’ll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

    Galaxy S2 Skyrocket: leader of the pack?, June 25, 2012

    This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket I727 16GB AT&T Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Smartphone – Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Having been a Blackberry user for several years but also owning an iPod4 64G, I finally decided to replace my 2-year old Blackberry Curve with a smartphone and went for the Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, cheaper than the iPhone and has had generally positive reviews from users.

    I’ve been using the Samsung now for a couple of weeks. Before getting into details about a few of the amazing features of this excellent phone, here is a summary of what I really liked about the Blackberry Curve and how the new Samsung compares:

    1. It was easy to type text on the Blackberry because it has a physical keyboard which even a user with big fingers can cope with. I was put off on-screen keyboards a couple of years ago by the truly appalling and virtually un-usable Blackberry Storm, but the Samsung is really OK in this department even though its keyboard appears on-screen because the key points are so large, and when you finger a key a larger image of it pops up to confirm which key you have activated.

    2. The Blackberry’s party piece was very easy and intuitive email management, which I need to use all day long for business messages. Well, the Samsung is surprisingly good here too, with the added bonus of a huge screen and the facility to enlarge or reduce text size with a sweep of the fingers, iPhone style. The text clarity is first class.

    3. The Blackberry has very long battery life and typically I’d only need to charge it every 4 or 5 days, even with heavy usage. The Samsung does not fare well in comparison and needs daily charging, but there’s a number of things you can do to prevent high power consumption like turning off features you’re not using and not playing music through it (if using the phone principally as an iPod-like music player is important to you, then this Samsung may not be for you as battery life will be reduced to a few hours).

    4. The Blackberry is small and handy in size, whereas the Samsung is 3x larger (but about the same thickness) – however in compensation, you get that amazing huge screen

    Here’s a summary of the main features of this amazing phone from my non-techie perspective:

    * The AMOLED screen on the Skyrocket is definitely its star attraction: huge, bright and clear with fabulous colour definition, it’s even better than the iPhone or iPod. Designers have finally copped-on that people don’t want ever smaller and smaller phones and no-one wants to watch a movie on a screen 1.5cm square; they want something of a convenient size that they can use and read easily at arm’s length

    * Despite the substantial size, it’s thin and lightweight at only 116g which makes it no problem in your pocket and a big advantage to a smaller person when making long calls (the iPhone for example is around 20g heavier)

    * All functions are very intuitive and easy to use – at least as good as the iPod4 with a similar feel

    * Calls are easy to make due to the big clear graphics and easy-to-follow menus – however it has some minor quirks like you can’t answer a call by actually pressing the green phone symbol, you have to `sweep’ across it – but once you learn this, everything is OK. The ear-speaker and voice-mike are both very good and very clear; reception so far first-class with no dropped calls

    * The quality of the image from the camera is also exemplary (but make sure the flash is turned on)

    * The Samsung has a standard connect-to-computer/mains charger socket, a micro-USB port located on the base-edge of the phone. Finally manufacturers have chosen (not before time) to stop ripping-off their customers by making them buy new chargers with every new handset and begun to standardize – FINALLY!

    In summary I’d say if you’re looking for a smartphone, the Samsung is a very serious contender. It’s beautifully designed, its screen is absolutely amazing – you need to just use it for a couple of minutes to appreciate how good it is – yet it’s lightweight. The menus are intuitive and easy to master; it has loads of optional software and aps (mostly free to the user, unlike with Apple); making calls and managing email is a breeze. It’s a weather forecaster, a GPS street-finder and a web browser with astoundingly clear screen definition unlike anything I ever used before.

    Possible cautions include barely acceptable battery life, and for this it drops a star: if you’re a current Blackberry user you’ll really notice this, and especially so if you use it as a music player. Also the Skyrocket might be intimidating if you’re a technophobe who just wants a simple phone to make calls. But it compares very well in all essentials against the iPhone: it’s lighter, cheaper and the screen is better, and most of the aps for which Apple charges you, you get with the Samsung for free.

    One final point: make sure you buy a good robust case and a screen protector for it; there’s plenty…

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    My first Android phone was a Samsung Captivate which I really enjoyed despite the three major flaws: poor battery life, under-powered processor and limited RAM (i.e. freezing and lagging) as well as limited storage. In comparison to the Samsung Captivate, the Samsung Skyrocket has a much bigger screen but feels lighter, has a more than capable processor as well as sufficient RAM (hence the phone never freezes or lags), it has greater battery capacity, and I can use a 32GB MicroSDHC card. I use a Diztronic Matte Back Clear Flexible TPU Case made for the Skyrocket (available on Amazon). Most people mistake the phone for the Galaxy S III. The two complaints I have about the phone: 1) the screen can run hot and 2) battery life is not stellar if you are actively using your cell or wi-fi signals. I would recommend definitely recommend this phone to mid-range to high end users, especially if the price is right. In addition, this phone was also easy to “root.”

    This item is not Galaxy SII Skyrocket, January 9, 2013

    This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket I727 16GB AT&T Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Smartphone – Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    Seller is not describing this item correctly, most of the specifications listed are for Galaxy SII Skyrocket which is SGH-I727 but if you pay attention to model it is listed as SGH-I777 which is what you will get if you order it from this seller. Check out Samsung website to verify which SGH model is actually Skyrocket and which device operates at 1.5GHz or 1.2GHz.
