Apps

The Epic 4G Touch comes with a respectable number of applications pre-installed and thankfully manages to avoid reaching bloatware levels. Still, I wish I cold delete NOVA 2 HD, NASCAR, all the Sprint-branded apps, and a handful of others. Unfortunately, you can't.

Bluetooth

The Epic 4G Touch supports mono/stereo Bluetooth headsets. Pairing and connecting was no problem, and sound quality through both was acceptable. The same goes for pairing with PCs and other devices to pass files back and forth.

Clock

The Epic 4G Touch's lock screen has a large digital clock at the bottom, but I wish the font were thicker or bolder. It can be a bit difficult to see at times. There is also a clock application if you're interested in using a stopwatch, timer, setting alarms, etc. This app doesn't have any effect on the lock screen clock, though.

GPS

The Epic 4G Touch includes Google Maps and TeleNav. Both do an admirable job of providing navigation, though TeleNav is a bit more reliable and faster to respond to changing driving conditions. Sprint offers TeleNav for free. Google Maps is also free.
