Inaccurate Review...

The phone uses a 1.2ghz dual core processor, not 1.0ghz like the reviewer states.

Also, many of the Sprint apps CAN be uninstalled. Sprint has listened to the customers complaining about unneeded bloatware and they have provided the option to be able to uninstall many of the apps that are included in the phone.

Also, there is no way this phone can be called heavy when at 4.60 oz is is much lighter than many other smartphones on the market.... perhaps lighter than 70 percent of the smartphones on the market. ie. Iphone 4, Evo 3D, Photon, Droid Bionic, etc.
The app *data* can be removed, but the bloatware icon in the menu cannot be removed. As far as I am concerned, if I still have to stare at the icon in my app tray, the app is still there.

The phone feels heavy to me. I understand that is a subject...

so i decided to either keep the plan and upgrade or just cancel my cell phone service and call it a day.

...so i now own a new samsung galaxy s2 epic 4G cell phone. since this is my first android experience i thought i would just get the best available from sprint. i personally hate large phones. it reminds of the old brick phones back in the 80's and 90's.

its not too heavy cause its replacing the LG rumor touch. the Rumor is heavy for its size so it kinda made this new phone feel l...

heavy???

You really think so? Played with one this morning & it feels like its a feather compared to my EVOs I've had.
I don't have an EVO on hand. It is a brick compared to other Galaxy S II phones, though.

Signal quality

Signal & phone call quality is my priority. How does this phone compare to the Motorola Photon 4g, which you said was the best 3g phone you've ever tested on Sprint's network?
