Samsung Epic 4G, how epic is it?

Sprint has announced a new Galaxy S phone to enter their lineup called the Samsung Epic 4G. The phone differs from other Galaxy S phones by giving users the options of a full slide out QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard’s layout is somewhat larger than other QWERTY keyboards on the market. The buttons are larger and the and are spaced further apart making texting or typing much easier and giving the user less chance of accidentally hitting the wrong letter.

The Epic has a 4 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480. The phone has a 50,000:1 contrast ratio which in return, supports movies and games to the max. The Epic also has a bulit in 3.5 mm headphone jack and also a 5 megapixel camera with a LED light for both camera and video. To add to that, there is also a 0.3 megapixel front facing camera incuded on the Epic compared to the 1.3 megapixel camera on the HTC Evo.

The phone runs on Android 2.1 along with a 1GHz processor making the phone very quick and responsive. The Epic also has 512MB of RAM, giving the Iphone 4 and the HTC Evo competition. Having 4G connection, the browser is able to run on top speeds out there. However, 4G is a relitivily new service so not everyone will be able to experience it. But when it becomes more popular, people will be astounded on how incredibly fast it is (this is a big addiction to the “epicness” of the phone).

I believe that this will be a great addition to the Android “family”. It provides the customer with a bunch of the latest qualities on a smartphone including the 4G network and a front facing camera. And giving the Iphone a challenge, I think it will be interesting to see how many people pick this phone over it.

What are your thoughts on the phone?
