"A True Disappointment"2.0 starson by neilara
Pros: Big screen, lightweight, sometimes fast
Cons: Sound problems, annoying bloatware, not-so-decent battery.
Summary: My wife and I have had three of the Skyrockets (we got one replaced by AT&T because of problems), and all have had lousy sound. Both of our remaining phones have bad echoes and her phone will not deliver a steady sound. The volume will drop off from time to time. Previously, we had iPhones with the same provider in the same geographic areas, and the sound was fine.My wife and I turned in the Samsungs and got iPhone 5s. The iPhones are much, much better.
The battery runs down quickly, which isn't a huge problem for me because I am almost always at a place where I can charge it, but it would be a problem for a lot of people.
A lot of people don't care about bloatware -- the response the salespeople always give is that it doesn't take up much space. But the space isn't the point. If Android phones are truly customizable, why can't I easily remove all of the apps that I don't want?
By the way, I tried to post a similar review on the AT&T website (nothing harsh, no foul language), and they refused to post it. That tells me that I can't trust any reviews on the AT&T site.
