As far as style goes, the Samsung Stratosphere 4G is a remarkable looking smartphone, sporting a 4″ WVGA Super AMOLED display, a five row sliding keyboard that includes a dedicated row for numbers and arrow keys and it’s a fairly light smartphone only weighing 5.8 ounces.
The Samsung Stratosphere 4G has a 1.3 MP front facing camera and a 5 MP rear camera with LED Flash. Although the Stratosphere is not capable of shooting video in HD this smartphone is capable of shooting video in 480p, which is high DVD quality video.
