Review: Samsung Epic 4G Touch

Form Basics Extras Wrap-up Comments  19  

The Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch pairs what users seem to want most: a ginormous display and a fast wireless data radio. With 4.5 inches of insane Super AMOLED Plus display to gaze at, and content delivered in a snap by the WiMax 4G radio on board, you'd think Samsung and Sprint could call it quits.

The biggest problem is that the Epic 4G Touch is, well, so darned big. Its massive size and weight may be too much for some users to handle.

Voice quality was good, as was 3G signal performance. WiMax performance was questionable, however. Battery life was weak and requires serious consideration by potential customers.

The music and video experience provided by the Epic 4G Touch are also good, and the camera and video camera perform better than average. With solid messaging and social networking applications available, there are few things the Epic 4G Touch can't do.

Aside from the few, minor issues we noted, there is very little holding the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch back. In fact, it may easily trounce the competition in Sprint's smartphone stable. If the Epic 4G Touch were a horse, it is one I'd bet on.
