    Default Is 4g LTE worth it?

    I love the epic touch 4g and I'm due for an upgrade. I dot have lte or WiMAX in my area and probably won't for the next 2 years. Is this still a good phone to buy on a contract?

    I've yet to find that perfect phone, but no phone is perfect. I wouldn't buy this phone again.

    I live in L.A. 4G is slow. LTE on my girls iphone is super fast, but LTE is scarce in this area still.

    The phone is 2 years old. I'd skip it. I am sure there is something better out there.

    I really like my SII and I plan to get another two or three years out of it.

    That said, no way I'd buy this phone on contract today. You'd be better off with the SIII (or, if your personal finances permit, maybe even wait a few months for the S4), that way if Sprint expands LTE to your area (too bad you didn't mention your location) you'll have 4G.

    definitely a good phone to purchase on contract, however without the introduction of LTE In Chicago I was going to leave Sprint. LTE is truly an incredible experience I haven'tused Wi-Fi on it yet. But since your not going to have it for two years, I'd grab a nexus 4 & split to a mvno or T-Mobile. GS2 is still a great device I still listen to music & play games on it, however Note 2 runs circles around it.

    Note 2's already over 3 months old so if I were you I'd either buy nexus 4 off contract for 350 or on contract with T-Mobile now for 49 bucks right now. Or just wait for "next best thing" Galaxy S4.... wouldn't lockinto 2 years of Sprint 3G for (best phone RIGHT NOW) Note 2! ;-)

    I am sure you have your reasons for liking the S2 (E4GT) but as a owner of both the phone you want and the S3, I couldnt recommend anyone buying anything on Sprint that isnt the Note 2 or the S3. First of all, I STILL cannot get my E4GT to lock on to GPS in under a minute consistently, and even if you had 4G data in your area, its still SLOWER than LTE. Also, the S3 and Note 2 have bigger batteries and a better aftermarket support.

    I suggest you either hold out for the S4 or get one the S3 or Note 2.

    Us(Chicago) not only got LTE but our 3g improved also. The first 3 is 3g
