    this phone = my current dream phone…..until the next generation comes out in the fall with 1.5ghz processors….

  4. YOUCANNOTDENY on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 3:32 pm 

    @Zaroon115 lol i think they work the same way though…

  5. johnnieares93 on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 4:14 pm 

    @Ytremz i think the Samsung Galaxy S Pro is the Epic 4G for UK without the 4G just guessing

  6. Ytremz on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 4:45 pm 

    Firstly, i am a great samsung fan, and i live in London UK.

    HOWEVER, this phone seems to exclusive in terms of where you can get it from- Sprint seems to be the only option. 4G is not available t my knowledge in the UK much- which is probably so in most places.

    For now, I would stick with the Galaxy S I9000 because it is considerably cheaper, works very well, and does not use specialist features that limits its usability. Feel free to prove me wrong!

    Android phones have taken the mantle from the iphone, and continues in evolving the smartphone where the iphone left off at. The Galaxy looks solid. All the Android phone alone for this year has been overwhelming for Apple.

  8. GodsIastBreath on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 5:31 pm 

    this phone is EPIC!!!!!!!!! LOL

  9. charbile20music on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 6:11 pm 

    after wave s8500 and galaxy S and epic 4G i can see that samsung is leading right now in the world of smartphones :D :P they have made : bada , android , window mobile its very nice !!

  10. SatanicaLvx666 on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 6:59 pm 

    I almost forgot to mention that it also has a gyro, analogous to the iphone 4 (not that anyone even cares about that, anyway). I also forgot that it has 16mb of stock memory vs. the 8gb stock memory of the evo. It is obvious that, yet again, the epic owns in every category…

  11. SatanicaLvx666 on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 7:08 pm 

    Do some fucking research. The epic pwns the evo in every fucking category. It has a better display, better cpu, better gpu, better camera (+ a fucking dedicated shutter, how fucking sweet), and a better input system, i.e. swype, full qwerty. I hate the fucks that pathetically attempt to “argue” that tft lcds are somehow “superior” to super amoleds. That is simply complete bullshit. I have the former, and I can clearly tell that the latter is vastly superior.

  12. SatanicaLvx666 on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 7:26 pm 

    Like other evo froYo owners, there is no dispute that froYo is the shit. It is fucking amazing. The problem is not the software, it is the hardware. So, the concept is to improve the hardware, and I believe that the epic does this brilliantly. I hate these fuckers that bitch about how it is “too bulky.” WTF does that mean? Oh yeah, like it is supposed to be a fucking wafer with a slide out qwerty…

  13. SatanicaLvx666 on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 8:14 pm 

    I currently switched to sprint from att & the iphone 3gs (like most, it seems). Also, like most, I have been having serious hardware problems with the absolutely shitty build of the evo, i.e. light leakage, dead pixels, etc.. I have debated about whether I should a) exchange it or b) cancel my contract, since I only did this like a week ago. I seem to be opting for b), now that I discovered this sweet epic 4g…

  14. SatanicaLvx666 on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 8:23 pm 

    @dialgamaster12 how the fuck is a full qwerty “unnecessary?” Firstly, the landscape onscreen keyboard of the evo is problematic because it obscures like 2/3 of the fucking screen. Secondly, I have found that most free flash games, i.e. kongregate, require hard keys, i.e. spacebar, letter keys, etc.., in order to activate any specific functions. So, therefore, it is impossible to play these games without a physical keyboard (think of froYo)…

  15. JLUNASYK on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 8:33 pm 

    Hope it works better than the Samsung Moment. My wife and I both got the Moment in Jan. I am on my third one, she is on her second.

  16. shatterlime on Mon, 23rd Aug 2010 9:27 pm

    Will this release in europe?

  26. 120785superman on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 2:37 am 

    @sbrylski06 i must agree with you on that the EVO is a sleek and sexy phone !! it does look better then the Epic !!

  27. sbrylski06 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 3:01 am 

    @120785superman The EVO is just so sleek and professional… so attractive. The Epic looks like a toy next to it. You’re right, the Epic is basically the better phone. But I have to like how it looks and feels as well, and I’m trying to talk myself into that. I wouldn’t mind having a physical keyboard (I have one now with my piece of shit Samsung Glyde), but the slate form factor is so much more attractive to me than a slider.

  28. 120785superman on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 3:14 am 

    I just pre- ordered !! mine a few hours ago at radioshack !! I cant wait

  29. 120785superman on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 3:51 am 

    @sbrylski06 Its not that hard !! the EPIC is way better ! the EVO is nothing but a bigger and faster version of the HTC Hero so you will get bored with it very fast !!! The Epic has a better processor , the Epic has a way better screen and has better video and camera quality 5megs !! The Epic also beat the Evo in a speed test.

  30. sltwaterkwby on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 4:24 am 

    I cant wait !!!!!

  31. craziestgapeach on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 4:56 am 

    uhm why would it be hard to choose it has a key board and touch screen its just like the evo but even better because it comes with a keyboard and swype already on there and the motion thing like the ipod all on your phone and video calls smh its like the best phone it beat everyone and samsung phones are very durable i love it my upgrade is sep1st i cant wait!.

  32. vampireweekend4eva12 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 5:13 am 

    @YOUNGTAYORCHICAGO no… only the Epic i think has the front facing camera… but i could be wrong. :/

  33. vampireweekend4eva12 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 5:58 am 

    “I want dinner, i’m hungry!” LOL! :D

  34. vampireweekend4eva12 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 6:30 am 

    @Prodemik EVO is bigger. :(

  35. Prodemik on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 7:27 am 

    whats with all these big ass phones, the epic is about as big as a psp!

  36. sbrylski06 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 8:07 am 

    EVO or Epic? This is the hardest decision I’ve ever made in my life.

  37. RedSoxRox34 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 8:17 am 

    @supornerdy HUH? She said “It has a 1.3 Megapixel front facing camera and a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with LED Flash which is unusual for a Galaxy S phone”

  38. 6ixtynin9 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 8:26 am 

    @4514NL4yd332duble08 The Galaxy S should already be out in the UK. Look for the Samsung i9000 (original version). This is Sprint’s version of the Galaxy S and is the only one to have front facing camera, 4G speed, qwerty keyboard, mobile hotspot, rear LED camera flash, and so much more, combined. There are other version for other Carriers: AT&T – Samsung Captivate, Verizon – Samsung Fascinate, T-Mobile – Samsung Vibrant, Sprint – Samsung Epic 4G (with Sprint’s version being the best of all 4).

  39. julianj46 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 9:09 am 

    ladies dont know shit about tech

  40. supornerdy on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 9:40 am 

    “The Epic has a rear-facing 5 megapixel camera and front facing 1.3 megapixel camera with LED flash, which is pretty unusual for a Galaxy S…”

  41. pritchard12 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 10:04 am 

    Dont have a woman do a review of a phone…

    It comes down to this “…..” or it also comes down to this “….”

  42. YOUNGTAYORCHICAGO on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 10:34 am 

    @supornerdy i thought that too all of the galaxy s phones have that epic captivate etc

  43. supornerdy on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 10:39 am 

    Okay, this is too weird. If you’re reviewing the Epic 4G, then why does the back of the “Epic” say Galaxy S?

  44. TheTehk17 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 10:39 am 

    @BigJayDogg2009 Personal opinion, I guess.

  45. BigJayDogg2009 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 11:03 am 


    It does that too…I personally don’t like it. LOL

  46. TheTehk17 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 11:26 am 

    @BigJayDogg2009 Yeah… Glad to see it’s there. But the tap contact icon is a shortcut too. It doesn’t bring you to the contacts page it opens a small popup over the icon and it shows all the ways to contact them

  47. BigJayDogg2009 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 12:23 pm 


    Its still there. Swiping is just a shortcut if you want to call someone. Tapping their listing is still an option.

    I don’t know if there are Twitter or Facebook options to send messages and such since I don’t use my phone like that. But tapping their name brings you to a page listing their contact information and from there you can send an email or whatever you need to do.

  48. TheTehk17 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 12:52 pm 

    @BigJayDogg2009 True. But what of the users that use email and the other contact ways? I wish Samsung would have kept the original Android ‘tap-contact-icon-to-show-all-ways-to-contact-them’. Or they could have put in an option that allows the user to choose what swiping the contact would take them to.

  49. BigJayDogg2009 on Tue, 24th Aug 2010 1:28 pm 


    I know 90% of the time when I go to a contact the two things I’m going to do is send them a message or call them. Its not a huge time saver, but it is convenient to me.

    Though if I’m going to send a message, chances are I’m also going to use Chomp.
