I really like the Samsung Epic 4G Touch — it seems that the more I use it, the more I like it. It’s quite large, but the big, beautiful screen makes that extra size worthwhile, and it’s thin and light enough that you don’t really notice just how big it is. Performance is exceptional, voice quality is good, and the camera takes great photos.

Samsung Epic 4G Touch from SprintThe only downsides, aside from the rather unfortunate power button placement, are the good (but not great) battery life and the very good (but not excellent voice quality). If I were going to buy a new Android smartphone today, the Epic would be at the top of a very short list.


  • Gorgeous display
  • Excellent performance
  • Good battery life, but could be better
  • Excellent camera


  • Voice quality is slightly less than I would expect
  • Annoying power button location
