Samsung Epic 4G Review: The Fastest Android Phone

by Anand Lal Shimpi on 9/6/2010 5:28:00 PM

This one has been a hotly requested item from you all: a review of the Samsung Galaxy S. Samsung sent us their newest Galaxy S phone, the Epic 4G for use on Sprint's WiMAX network. It's the first 4" phone we've reviewed, the first to use Samsung's Hummingbird SoC and the first with a Super AMOLED display.

The CPU performance proved to be on par with the Motorola Droid X and other 1GHz Android offerings, but the GPU performance is a good 30 -

45% better than anything else on the market today. The new Super AMOLED display is also a huge improvement over the AMOLED screens we've seen in other Android phones.

Battery life leaves a lot to be desired as the Epic 4G lasted less than 4 hours in our 3G/4G web browsing tests. We also encountered issues with the phone's GPS receiver as many others have reported.

Overall Samsung's Epic 4G is a nice step forward for Android, but with a few glaring issues it remains imperfect.

Read about it all and more in our full review of the Epic 4G.
