Samsung Galaxy S II for Sprint (Samsung Epic 4G Touch) – Hands on video

We got a little bit of hands-on time with the Samsung Galaxy S 2 for Sprint, known as the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, and it’s an impressive Android handset. It’s very lightweight without feeling too cheap, and the Super AMOLED Plus screen is very nice. The display measures 4.52 inches diagonally, so it’s definitely a beast of a phone in terms of size and feel, but if you’re all about screen real estate, this is your phone.

The Samsung Epic 4G Touch for Sprint runs Android Gingerbread 2.3.4 with an updated version of TouchWiz UI. It features Social Media Hub, which allows you to get your Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn feed, along with other social media service feeds, all in one places. This way, you don’t have to constantly switch between apps just to get all the info you want from your social media outlets.

On the back of the device, you’ll find an 8MP camera with a back-illuminated sensor, which ought to be great for capturing images in low-light situations. It is capable of recording HD video as well, so you can display them on your massive TV with the HDMI-out on the device.

The Samsung Epic 4G Touch for Sprint is a 4G WiMax device, and you can use it as a mobile hotspot for 3G or 4G where available.

The Samsung Epic 4G Touch for Sprint becomes available on September 16 for $199.99 with a new, two-year contract, which isn’t a bad price for this massive 4G WiMax device. Check out our small gallery below for additional photos and angles on the device.

    Samsung’s screens are awesome.  Its the rest of the phone that makes it feel cheap.  Make it look pretty and high quality like the iPhone and I’ll buy it.

        wow someone takes their phones a bit too seriously.  FANBOY RAGE.  its just a phone brah, just a phone… and it really is only considered outdated if software is no longer made for it, which it is, so i guess you are the dumbass… this is coming from a nonfanboy EVO 3D.  i’m actually considering dropping this brick for the iphone 5.  android, although nice, gets old when things force-close often and crazy bugs occur.

      The iPhone is not high quality…Glass on the front and back is the worst idea ever. Everyone I know with an iPhone 4 has at least 1 side cracked. I have never met anyone with a cracked screen on an android device. Just sayin.

        you  are right everyone i know with a iphone has a cracked screen n u need a credit card for every app,, sucks for iphone users lol i myself have a android ,,the only issue i have with this galaxy is no conference calls,, thats bad,,,otherwise im good with it

  • Did they say whether the US versions will have the gorilla glass screens like the international devices?

      It wasn’t specified but I do believe that this is high-quality, scratch-resistant glass on the devices.
