The production of touch screen phones has brought our generation into a whole new technological level. With the many companies competing against each other, and some even former rivals, Samsung develops the Galaxy series to increase their firepower. Not only is the Galaxy family a worthy adversary to other companies but have been one of the most successful series in Samsung history. When the Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket made its debut, even iPhone users were thinking of making that switch which changed their perspective to touch screen phones.
Instead of equipping the Skyrocket with a TFT display, Samsung installed the overwhelming Super AMOLED capacitive with 16 M colors, which portrays brilliant graphics and textures as well as easy to use smooth navigation over the screen. 3G networks have been dominating portable internet since 2001 and did a magnificent job in escalating online performance. Unfortunately for 3G, the new 4G LTE has been introduced and is officially quite faster and smoother than 3G. This is an epic feature installed in the Skyrocket as it is ultimately compatible with the enhanced graphics, software and hardware. Furthermore the Skyrocket also includes the use of a Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct and of course hotspots.
As for the Skyrocket’s camera, it speaks for itself with its 8 MP 3264×2448 pixel resolution. Additionally the camera has functions such as auto focus, LED flash, geo tagging for location purposes, touch focus to manually have the camera focus on objects and smile detection…that’s right smile detection and who wouldn’t want to smile when taking a picture using a Skyrocket? The Skyrocket can also operate a 1080 p at 30 frames per second video recorder for making videos to post on youTube or many other social applications and networks as well as sharing with friends and family in an instant.
To make life easier, Samsung added extra room for overloading the Skyrocket with media. An initial 16 GB internal memory may do the trick because if not, the storage may be expanded using a micro SD or SDHC up to a maximum of 32 GB. Speaking of media, the music player can read several formats such as MP3, WAV, eAAC+, AC3 and FLAC which consequently obliterates the need to convert the music into a specific format. This goes for the videos as well; formats like MP4, DivX, XviD, WMV, H.263 and H.264 can all be recognized by the Skyrocket. To make things even more enjoyable a 3.5 mm jack is available to use personal headphones, no need to look for multi ports thank you Samsung.
With the many features mentioned as well as features like social integration, tools, a built in GPS with A-GPS support, fully functional sensors and common functions render this phone to be quite valuable. As we may know, Samsung has been in the game for a long time and it is great to see them continue to excel. For all we know, they might even create a great appliance in the future which could possibly even save lives.
