Review: Samsung Epic 4G Touch
The Epic 4G Touch comes with the stock Android browser. Paired with Sprint's CDMA 3G network it worked well, and most data sessions were fast enough to satisfy your inner speed demon. I didn't notice any additional features or functionality added by Samsung to improve the browsing appearance, though the 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display certainly doesn't hurt the experience.
Samsung offers plenty of tools to let most users make the Epic 4G Touch their own. With seven home screens, there is gobs of real estate for apps, shortcuts, and widgets. Wallpapers can all be changed up, as can ringtones, and such. The added ability to use Sprint's iD packs provides even more opportunity to customize the Epic 4G Touch for those who care to use it.
