Samsung Epic 4G Review: The Fastest Android Phone

 

This one has been a hotly requested item from you all: a review of the Samsung Galaxy S. Samsung sent us their newest Galaxy S phone, the Epic 4G for use on Sprint's WiMAX network. It's the first 4" phone we've reviewed, the first to use Samsung's...

With each new iteration of Android smartphone we get closer to the perfect device. Samsung took some pretty big steps toward that ideal ‘droid but regressed in others.

Samsung Epic 4G Review by Aaron

 

What's Good: Speedy processor; 4G connectivity; excellent physical QWERTY keyboard; front-facing camera for video chatting. What's Bad: Doesn't ship with Android 2.2 out of the box; $249.99 price is $50 higher than other high-end smartphones.

Speedy processor; 4G connectivity; excellent physical QWERTY keyboard; front-facing camera for video chatting

Doesn't ship with Android 2.2 out of the box; $249.99 price is $50 higher than other high-end smartphones ; The Verdict: The Samsung Epic 4G is the most feature-packed device out of the Galaxy S series, and is one of the best Android handsets to date

Feature for feature, the Samsung Epic 4G is the best Android device out right now, and certainly the best device in the Galaxy S family. With a snappy 1 GHz processor, 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, 5-megapixel camera, and a fantastic QWERTY keyboard, it...

Samsung Epic 4G Review

 

Sprint's second ever 4G phone is the Samsung Epic 4G. The Samsung Epic 4G is Sprint's unique version of the Samsung Galaxy S. Does it match up to its brothers, the Vibrant and the Captivate or does it get weighed down by its physical bulkiness?

Samsung Epic 4G Review by Noah

 

What's Good: Big, beautiful display; Roomy five-row QWERTY board with good tactile feedback; 3G/4G/WiFi connectivity; Dual cameras; Responsive controls and speedy performance. What's Bad: Samsung's custom skin doesn't add much to Android and can't be...

Big, beautiful display; Roomy five-row QWERTY board with good tactile feedback; 3G/4G/WiFi connectivity; Dual cameras; Responsive controls and speedy performance

Samsung's custom skin doesn't add much to Android and can't be disabled; Plastic materials feel cheap; Sprint's 4G service isn't everywhere and their 3G speeds can be slow; $249 price tag is high, and $10/month Premium Data add-on fee is mandatory ;...

Fast smartphones with big displays and lots of features are a dime a dozen these days. While there's a trend underway towards extreme devices with 4.3" displays and thin profiles, I personally think a somewhat smaller device with a screen in the 3.5-4"...

Samsung Epic 4G Review

 

The Samsung Epic 4G is Sprint's second smartphone with WiMAX. This cutting-edge model runs Google's Android OS on a 1 GHz processor, and has a 4.3-inch touchscreen and slide-out keyboard. Antoine Wright brings us a review.

Excellent screen ; Comfortable, ergonomic slide-out keyboard ; Fast performance in day-to-day operations

Camera LED flash is extremely bright ; Device generates a bit of heat in longer sessions ; Speaker phone quality suffers at higher volume levels

When a manufacturer creates one model in several variants for carriers, you always want to see some character trait stick out. With the Epic 4G, the distinguishing marks start with a screen that’s just beautiful to look at; a sliding keyboard that...

Review: Sprint's WiMAX capable Samsung Epic 4G review

 

If you've been holding out on Sprint's HTC EVO 4G while waiting for an Android smartphone with WiMAX capabilities that also offers a full QWERTY keyboard, your mobile prayers have been answered. Samsung's Epic 4G has arrived, and it's a top-notch...

Good call quality, excellent Super AMOLED display, 16GB microSD included, good keyboard

WiMAX not available in NYC yet, pre-installed bloatware, bulkier than other Galaxy S devices, short battery life

I found the keyboard to be very good, and I'll discuss more of its features in this review's Messaging section.

Samsung Epic 4G First Look Review

 

The first thing that jumps out about the Epic 4G is the four-inch Super AMOLED display. It looks amazing. The black levels are incredibly deep and the colors vibrant

As Elliott explained, the Epic 4G should satiate some of that demand when it's released later this month. Judging from the warm reviews the other Samsung Galaxy smarphones received and my initial impressions, the Epic 4G could well be an excellent...

Samsung Epic 4G: High Speed, High Price

 

Samsung introduced a handful of Galaxy S smartphones this summer, and all of them are impressive. The problem is, however, that most of them are so similar that they can be hard to distinguish. But not the Samsung Epic 4G.
