Review: Samsung Epic 4G
I was very disappointed to find the stock Android music player on the Samsung Epic 4G. It's not terrible, I actually like some of the features, like the ability to search for more music online and on YouTube directly from the player. But it's very basic, lacking in advanced playback features. The interface is touch friendly, but very bland. Samsung has created better music player designs for other TouchWIZ phones in the past, and while I'm happy to let most of TouchWIZ remain in the past, I miss the music players.
In terms of hardware, the Epic 4G is loaded for bear. The phone comes with a plentiful 16GB microSD card already loaded into its slot, just beneath the battery cover. There's a headphone jack up top so you can plug in your own earbuds. The phone also supports stereo Bluetooth, and music sounded great playing through my Bluetooth speakers.
