AT&T Android Smartphone

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking at picking up a new phone in sometime between now and April and I'm wondering if there is anything amazing now or coming out soon that I should be looking at.

I'm currently using a Samsung Captivate

Important things
-Battery Life
-Battery Life
-Rootable
-ICS
-Audio quality

Any recommendations would be awesome, and no unlocked since I'm up for a contract renew anyway I might as well get it cheap.

ATT should be releasing their version of the Galaxy Note within that timeframe.

Im looking to move from my Atrix to the International Unlocked Note, but if I can't find one I will pick up the LTE version from ATT on a contract renewal.

Heresy my 2c: i would have LOVED to get the galaxy note but in the end the gsII won out due to price
if you are a power user the att version of the note may not be as good. It will be using the let comparable cpu that is much less efficient/underperforming compared to the Samsung made cpu.

I highly recommend getting the gsII (non skyrocket) because of the crazy good dev support (which gives you all the things you listed you wanted) and for the general awesomeness of this phone. If you want to drop some cash the international note is a great choice

Yeah, you got the Galaxy S 1, which is a generation behind and already confirmed that it's not getting ice cream sandwhich...

I have another vote for the Galaxy S II, original and not LTE...

the LTE is literally faster than my FIOS, but with a 4GB plan, who would want to go through that data in 15 minutes? also battery life is horrible...

Galaxy S II, i777, best phone I have ever owned/used... and even though it originally came out (i9100) in March of this year, it still competes with the latest and still has top notch specs...
Looking forward to nothing else other than the Galaxy S 3...

-Battery Life - I get a good 15 hours after 'moderate' usage
-Battery Life - 1650 mAh battery
-Rootable - one of the best supported
-ICS - confirmed for this and Galaxy Note a few weeks ago
-Audio quality - this here... Your captivate has the Wolfson's WM8994 DAC-one of the best, which the galaxy S 2 is provided by samsung and apparently not as good, but with my IEM's, it still sounds excellent...

Yea I can't really complain about the battery life on my GS2 (I777). If I'm not being a media whore with it, I can easily get a few days off of one charge.
Audio quality for a phone is pretty good IMO (use Pandora a lot), granted I'm not sure what I'm even comparing it to (certainly not home audio setup).

It's of course root-able and will also be getting ICS in March from what I've read.
