In this year Samsung has taken the mobile industry by storm after issuing their latest line of Android depended phones called the Galaxy S series. In the US market alone Samsung has released one Galaxy S variation for each of the four major carriers. T-Mobile USA has the Vibrant, AT&T issued the Captivate, Verizon issued the Fascinate, and Sprint brings us the Epic 4G. Each has its own characteristics defining its position in the Galaxy S line.
We are going to concentrate on the Epic 4G which boast a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, arresting Super AMOLED HD - similar screen and is provided by Sprints glaring fast 4G n/w. At present that we have the formalities out of the way letís get down and dirty with this review.
Weighing in at 5.47 oz.s and 14.24mm in thickness the Epic 4G is not the light-weighted or slimmest of the Galaxy S series still it doesnít feel overly huge when carrying it around in your pocket for long periods. When you consider what the phone has to extend with its huge full qwerty keyboard and large 4 inch Super AMOLED display the specifications donít appear overly large.
The display on the Epic 4G is nothing abruptly of arresting. Bright vivid colors rendered by the 4 inch 480 x 800 result Super AMOLED display make this device easily one of the best media consumption devices on the market. One of the extremes of the AMOLED technology used to be lack of visibility in direct sunlight. With the coming of Super AMOLED this has been improved significantly.
Being a US dependent Sprint phone the Epic 4G provides 3G dual band CDMA (800/1900 MHz). A big selling point to this phone is that it even assists Sprintís WiMAX 4G n/w which on average could give you 3-6 Mbps. Unluckily at the time of this review 4G was not available in our area so we could not test the function. At home or on the go in your favorite coffee shop you have the capabilty to link via WiFi using 802.11b/g/n for top network performance. Out of the box the Epic 4G comprises 1GB of memory (512 RAM/512 ROM) which renders plenty of room to grow.
