"Great phone but not Iphone killer!"4.0 starson by tomxyz
Pros: Big screen, freedom to configure, 4G/LTE phone, updatable to ICS soon.
Cons: Bad camera, quality's just isn't there.
Summary: Love the big, bright screen. I bought my Skyrocket about three weeks ago. I switched from an Iphone 3GS because I wanted a bigger screen to better read my emails and view web pages on the go. It took me a week to adjust to Andriod's UI. Although the Skyrocket is very nice and easy to configure, on occasions it's still taking a few more steps to do certain things compared to the Iphone. Now that I'm pretty familiar with the UI, I may not ever go back to Apple. I like the fact that I don't have to depend on Itunes to update my phone. I could just plug in the enclosed USB cable and drag and drop music files. As nice as the Skyrocket is, it's not perfect; I hate the fact that the volume rocker and on/off switch were at the sides instead of at the top because I usually press one or the other by mistake. Other reviewers complaint about battery life but if you switch if off (not turned off) when not in use, the batter tends to last longer. Other people also complaint about the lack of software but that's not my problem. I mainly use my phone for calls, emails, listening to music, and do a brief web search when I'm out. The only game I have on my phone so far is Angry bird; I also have my real estate icons such as MLS, Realtor, Zillow, and loan calculators. The camera takes great pictures if you have adequate lighting. If it's low light, your pictures turn bluish in color. This week, a reddish spot appears in the middle of my camera. When I took pictures, the the red spot was captured as well. I took my phone to my local ATT store to swap a new one but there were all sold out and was told to come back when the next shipment's arrive. Despite the problems mentioned, I intend to keep my phone except the exchange I intend to do. I wanted the Galaxy Nexus but don't want to switch to Verizon since they don't have roll over minutes like ATT. Besides, the features reviewed on the Nexus isn't that great either that's why I bought the Skyrocket now. I believe the Skyrocket is the best smart phone out there todate. You won't regret buying it.
