Music

The Epic 4G Touch uses the same slightly customized version of the Android Music player application we've seen from Samsung of late. It includes the nifty "CD View" for sorting through music, and user-adjustable equalizers for shaping the sound.

Music can be played back through attached headphones, or sent via Bluetooth to properly-equipped Bluetooth devices. Sound quality of music playback was quite good.

The Epic 4G Touch also includes a few options other than the stock player, such as Sprint Music Plus and Sprint Radio. There are no third-party music applications preinstalled such as Slacker or Pandora, though they are easy to find in the Android Market.

Video

As far as video goes, the Epic 4G Touch has the stock Android video player application, YouTube application, and Sprint TV & Movies application on board. The Epic 4G Touch easily handled video content that I side-loaded, and I found the Epic 4G Touch great for watching movies thanks to the large screen.

Media Hub

The Epic 4G Touch also comes with Samsung's Media Hub. It is sort of like the BlockBuster Android application. Users can access the Media Hub to download movies and television shows on the Epic 4G Touch, but not music. Rental fees and sale prices vary by title.

AllShare is on board for those who like to share their multimedia files with DLNA-compatible devices, such as HDTVs.
