Overall, we’re content with the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II. Not only is it more fashionable than the original model, but is quite faster with the dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor. The full QWERTY keyboard is one of its main features, and we like how it is laid out and is easy to us...

Overall, we’re content with the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II. Not only is it more fashionable than the original model, but is quite faster with the dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor. The full QWERTY keyboard is one of its main features, and we like how it is laid out and is easy to use for those of you that do a lot of typing. We do wish that the 4” screen was a little larger and higher resolution, but it still does a good job for a mid-range device. As it stands, the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II is currently priced by Verizon at $129 with a 2-year contract, while the Pantech Marauder is free, and the Motorola DROID 4 is $99. Between them, the Galaxy Stratosphere II and DROID 4 are the better choices, but the edge does go to the Samsung since it’s using a faster processor along with a Super AMOLED display.
