    Default The Samsung Expanded Clipboard is Epic (4G Touch)

    Most Android phones let you copy something and paste it somewhere else. But have you ever wished you could paste the thing you copied a minute ago?

    With the Epic 4G Touch, you can!

    The Epic 4G Touch Clipboard saves typing and improves accuracy.

    Copy text while composing
    1. Tap in the text box at the end of the last word to copy.
    2. Tap the blue arrow that appears.
    3. Tap Select all or Select word.
    4. Optional: Drag the end arrows to include just the text you want to copy.
    5. Tap Copy


    Paste or delete an item in the clipboard
    1. Tap in the text box at the end of the last word to copy.
    2. Tap the blue arrow that appears.
    3. To paste or delete an item in the clipboard:
    • Pate: Tap Paste for the last thing you copied -or- Tap Clipboard see the clipboard with previous items.
    • Delete: Long-press an item and then tap Delete from clipboard.

    Copy other content
    To copy other content such as a web pages photo while in the browser:
    1. Long press the screen area containing the selected text/image.
    2. Drag your finger across the screen to highlight the content.
    3. Tap Copy, Search (Google, Google translate, Wikipedia), or Share (text or image).

    If you tapped Copy, the content is now in your clipboard ready to be pasted as before.

    I'm new to Android. I have an iPod touch and the only feature I notice on here that isn't on there is pasting previously copied items. So is this the only new feature to this? It's still a great addition. Also is there a way to delete everything on the clipboard?

    To delete items from the clipboard, long-press the item and then tap Delete. Good question. I will add that.

    As to the question, is there any other new feature, I am glad you asked!

    There are many unique features in the 25 Reasons to Consider the Sprint Epic 4G Touch including:
    • Apple says that you must have a 3.5" phone. Android has options from 2.6" to 4.5". In a survey last month of 5,000 smartphone users only 8% wanted a phone under 4".
    • It's a bright SAMOLED display not an LCD display like Apple uses.
    • It's dual core 1.2GHz Exynos.
    • Sprint is allowing users to uninstall bloatware.
    • It Syncs Wirelessly
    • It securely syncs with Microsoft Exchange email, calendar, contacts and tasks.
    • It's customizable.
    • It has widgets and it's Widgets are Resizable
    Connect a Bluetooth Mouse/Keyboard to the Epic 4G Touch
    • You can Customize the Epic 4G Touch Lock Screen
    • It's Really Hands Free
    • It Takes Screenshots
    • It's Cheap to Accessorize

    There are hundreds of other features Apple iOS is lacking including third-party keyboards, Wallpaper, microSD, Notification LED, etc. See the Getting Started.

    I'm definitely getting one and I know the differences between the operating systems (for the most part). I was only asking about the clipboard. To restate my question for clarity "Does Android usually allow copying and pasting like iOS does, and the new feature on the Epic 4G Touch is that you have a clipboard of multiple items, or is there more that usually isn't featured on Android as far as copying and pasting goes?"

    Copy and paste is there for everything that I have used in the last 18 months.

    Android has had Cut and Paste since 2008. What is new is that TouchWiz 4 came out this year with the Clipboard that lets you go back to something you copied a couple back.
