Review: Samsung Epic 4G

PCWorld: Review – Samsung Epic 4G

The reviewer could find little to fault in this smartphone, which sells for $250 with a two-year contract. But it still faces stiff competition from the HTC EVO, a similar device that sells for slightly less.

“The Samsung Epic 4G ($250 with a two-year contract from Sprint, as of August 20, 2010) stands out from its Galaxy S siblings for a few reasons. Unlike the others, it has a physical keyboard and a front-facing camera, and it’s the second phone to run on Sprint’s 4G network. How does it stack up against the other 4G device, the HTC EVO 4G? And how does it compare to other mega-smartphones in the Android universe? Read on.


In the last week, I’ve reviewed three phones with hardware keyboards: the BlackBerry Torch, the Motorola Droid 2, and now the Epic 4G. Keyboard death watch? Not so much. Out of all of these phones, the Epic definitely has the best keyboard. The keys are nicely spaced and have a good clickiness to them.”
