As the top tier “superphone” of the Galaxy S line, the Epic 4G has plenty to live up to, in terms of its name. Yes, it does use “4G’ from WiMAX, and has a front-facing camera coupled with a solid but flat QWERTY slide-out keyboard. Other than being an epic Android smartphone running the Android 2.1 version of the OS with Touchwiz 3.0 icing, the Epic 4G also has a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, a fabulous 5 megapixel camera with HD 720p recording, and lastly half-day battery life. Not on one occasion has the Epic 4G review unit lasted me a full day of rigorous testing, but that shouldn’t take a lot from the experience, right?
Right, I’ll talk about that later.
