The Samsung Stratosphere II shows up in leaked image
posted by Alan F. / Nov 01, 2012, 6:24 PM
Now that we have an idea of what is inside the Samsung Stratosphere II, the serial leakers at evleaks have tweeted a picture of the handset right down to the side-sliding QWERTY. The screen might be a little larger, the processor might be faster and the camera sensor might be improved, but the device still screams mid-range.
We don't know when the device will be launched or what the price will be, but with current Samsung Stratosphere owners just a little more than half way through their current lock-up, Verizon might need to persuade a lot of new buyers that this is the phone for them.

I prefer the Droid 4's keyboard over the current Stratosphere.

Motorola really needs to hurry up with the Droid 5 already. I would have probably picked up that Motorola one that Sprint offers if it was on Verizon when I was still with them. I would LOVE to have a 4.3 inch color boost 720p display, 5 row moto slideout keyboard, quad core s4 pro processor, 2 gbs of ram, and with jellybean. Those specs I mentioned aren't going to happen anytime soon, maybe sometime in 2013 but we can dream can't we?

i doubt the S4 Pro or the addition of an extra GB of RAM because i don't think Motorola would want to 1-Up their Flagship Razr HD devices with something like a Droid 5. the specs i would expect are... a 4.3"-4.5" Edge to Edge 720p Colorboost Display a regular 1.5GHz S4 1GB of RAM 5 Row Edge Lit Keyboard a battery size between 2000mAh & 2530mAh 8MP Camera Rear Camera & a 1.3MP FFC all being powered by at least Android 4.1.2 and the device will probably have a sleeker design. the design is probably the leverage they'll use with the Droid 5. i'd hope for more of course but this is along the lines of what i'll expect.

"The screen might be a little larger, the processor might be faster and the camera sensor might be improved, but the device still screams mid-range." Quoted for truth. I cannot fathom why anyone would release a single core, much less an LTE single core device at this point. Although I have sold a sh*t ton of Stratospheres,

Basically the Sprint Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE from Samsung for Verizon. Although the Moto probably has a better keyboard.

My younger sister has one, she hates it. For a mid-range phone it sucks. She has major battery drainage, heating issues, random reboots and call quality just failed. She is on her third one since we upgraded her in DEC '11. Plan to just speak to CS and get a different replacement, she doesnt want a keyboard anymore as its too bulky for her to carry around. Will try to get a RAZR for her at least.

if you are selling a lot of stratosphere's you must work for a reseller & not a corporate location, which means you don't have to deal w/the backlash of the multitude of issues w/this phone seen at the corporate outlets. stratosphere is not a good phone by any means...along w/the samsung stellar.

What the heck is the 4th touch button with the 3 dots? I've never seen that before.
