ATT recently released their first two true 4G LTE smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and the HTC Vivid. Two top brands with similar specs and LTE.

Unless you're a devotee of Samsung or HTC, it's not easy to pick. Both have 4.5" displays, dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPUs, very good 8 megapixel rear cameras that shoot 1080p video, run Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread and are promised upgrades to Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The Skyrocket costs $50 more with contract, but at $199 vs. $249 for a phone you might have to live with for 2 years, $50 shouldn't be the deciding factor. Especially when your monthly contract costs dwarf your phone investment.[readmore]
