Summary

If you've been holding out on Sprint's HTC EVO 4G while waiting for an Android smartphone with WiMAX capabilities that also offers a full QWERTY keyboard, your mobile prayers have been answered. Samsung's Epic 4G has arrived, and it's a top-notch device that seems to offer it all: a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, a large 4-inch Super AMOLED display, a 5 megapixel camera with HD video recording and an LED flash, and a keyboard that's very comfortable to use.

While there are some setbacks, namely battery life, the Epic 4G is a premium smartphone that's sure to knock more than just a few socks off. In this review I'll discuss the device's features, as well as what makes it stand out amongst the other Galaxy S devices, which have already launched on AT&T and T-Mobile.

You'll find two videos of the Samsung Epic 4G in action after the Table of Contents, below.
