Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II Review

0. phoneArena posted on 24 Jan 2013, 02:00

In a world where large-screen smartphones dominate the scene, it’s nice to see there is still a selection of moderately sized devices that feature a physical QWERTY keyboard. As one would have it, the new Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II takes the reins from the original Samsung Stratosphere, which came out near the end of 2011. Though the Galaxy Stratosphere II has a few other devices to compete with, namely the Pantech Marauder and Motorola DROID 4, it still manages to fit nicely in the group while offering a good selection of features...

This is really the same phone with a faster processor. I'm disappointed because the first Stratosphere was a good stable phone. I expected more.

What exactly did you expect? IMHO, I expected nothing more than an internal upgrade with the device which it did get for the most part. I wasn't expecting the minor aesthetic changes but oh well. Still a very good phone.....and it should have come with 1080p video capture....

I expected it to be way different since the first Stratosphere was not a new phone. It was taken from Sprint version a year later with LTE as a bonus.

So, this is the third time they pretty much use the same phone in, I believe 2.5 years.
