Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE Review

Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE Review
Just as before, calling quality is pretty darn good on the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE – though, its speaker won’t blow your mind away. Nevertheless, its quality is ample enough on both ends of the line to comprehend voices with minimal effort.

As we’ve comes to realize, battery life is a constant concern for the majority of LTE devices out there, therefore, we can only speculate that it would be no different for this one. Of course, seeing that we’re able to connect via EDGE, its battery life is handsomely generous in getting us a few days of juice on a single charge.


No doubt we take a fancy to seeing a higher resolution display, but in all honesty, you’re better off picking up that other Samsung device, you know, the one they call the Galaxy Nexus. There is no reason to buy this Korean only model, as the unlocked carrier-free penta-band Nexus has similar price and everything it offers plus Ice Cream Sandwich and usable 4G. If the Galaxy S II HD LTE had usable 4G connection, it would have been an alternative for those who want something “different”. However, it is ridiculous to pay premium price for a “2G phone”. The upcoming Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD on AT&T will not have this issue and will come with a carrier-subsidized price, making it a model to consider.
