Looking to upgrade to a new Android device on Sprint? Starting today Samsung’s Galaxy S II variant, the Epic 4G Touch is officially available via the Sprint website. It’s gonna set you back $200 on the usual two year commitment, but the good news is you’ll be getting one of the better Android-powered smartphones on the market for much less than possible before now.
If you couldn’t bring yourself to part with $600+ for the unlocked Galaxy S II, the subsidized price will definitely make it easier to make the switch. The 4G WiMax-capable device sports a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display and an impressive 7.7-thin design. Most of the other hardware specs mirror its Galaxy S II counterpart available on other carriers.
There isn’t much of a departure here from the original Galaxy S II design, and that’s a good thing. Engadget posted a thorough review of the device where they even admit the Epic 4G might have improved upon the original Galaxy S II design:
“As preposterous as it may sound that an already wonderful phone may have been improved upon by a carrier, we think Sprint’s variant may have done just that: beefing up the screen, adding an LED notification light, using a larger battery and adding a couple capacitive touchscreen buttons could indeed make the phone even more desirable than it already is…”
9to5Google was also quite impressed with the Epic 4G after recently going hands on with the device:
“Overall, it is tough to find fault with this phone. It has a huge 4.5″ screen which will have passersby commenting, yet it is as light and thin as an iPhone 4. Samsung’s Touchwiz has gone from unwieldy to handsome and dare I say helpful. There isn’t a faster smartphone on the market thanks to Samsung’s dual core processor. The battery lasts all day even under heavy usage.”
