My impressions with the samsung epic 4g
So I go to play with the samsung epic 4g today and the phone certainly is one of the best android phones out. Upon first impressions, the phone simply looks gorgeous; nothing on the phone looks cheap, it has a nice heft to it, and the black and chrome on the phone is as some would could it "tasteful." If your looking for a smaller version of the evo in terms of size, definitely look elsewhere because this phone is just as big and slightly thicker.
When first powered on, one will definitely notice the blast of vivid rich colors that are produced from the super amoled's screen, everything simply pops out. One thing to note however is that I did notice a screen door effect on the particular samsung's screen that I was playing with, while a few weeks back I went to T-mobile to play with the vibrant and noticed no such screen door effect. I am going to assume it's just this particular model's screen that is having this effect, because I believe all the galaxy s phones have the same screen.
Samsung definitely went the extra mile to make this phone incredibly fast and responsive. Scrolling is phenomenally smooth, pinch to zoom works flawlessly and apps load very quickly. I did not notice any lag like the other galaxy s phones that occurs when one exits an app by pressing the home button, which is much appreciated.
The capacitive buttons on the bottom will take some getting used, especially because the buttons don't stay lit even when the phone's screen is currently in use (although there may be a setting to fix that). Sometimes when I press the menu or back key for instance it seems as if the phone doesn't register the command. However, after hitting the button dead on the phone had no problems registering the command and it seems as if the issue is with accurately hitting the capacitive buttons.
The keyboard on the phone definitely is nice and big, certainly very usable. The spacing is very nicely done on the phone and I can definitely see myself typing fairly fast on the keyboard.
So that's the epic 4g in a nutshell, it's similar to the other galaxy s phones, but their are some features that make the epic 4g stand out for the better. If you guys have any questions please feel free to comment below. Thanks.
