    I went home to chicago for about a week and I have been noticing about the same 3G/4G performance as the EPIC 4G and EVO 3D. When even comparing coverage, we had the same bars, i wouldn't lose 4G either and when I did it was because of coverage, not the phone. I might be lucky to have one of the good ones.

    glad they are finally rolling out updates.

    I have a samsung epic and i'm due for an upgrade since i get one every 12 months on the sprint retention plan.
    anyway, went to check out the evo3d and the nexus. i still don't like the size of the evo3d, it still just feels big and clunky to me. the nexus was just like my epic in terms of size, just a little thinner which is nice.
    anyway, i wanted to post because i ran speedtest tests on my epic right next to the nexus phone. both phones picked up 3g signals fine and ran about the same speed. they also both picked up wifi from a business next door and the speed was almost the same also. no difference. i probably should have checked the evo3d also, but since I don't like it, I didn't bother.
    the guy at the sprint store said the motorola photon would be out soon and i might like that one too....so, i'm waiting a little bit.

    If you like Samsung phones and the Touchwiz on your Epic, you may also want to consider the Galaxy II rumored for Sprint later this year as the Samsung Within. You can check a recent review of it here.

    To markharrell, my phone has a brief lag period when turning from white to green bars. I also get random text message failures because the bars switch from green back to white intermittently. I think it has something to do with the garbage Sprint network.

    Green means it's connected to Google's servers. White is also fine. There is nothing wrong with your phone, Mark.

    You know what.. all this talk of bad radios and such on this phone..

    I can tell you after having an EVO 3D for 4 1/2 months.. I think this phone is better. The EVO, at least mine, does NOT do very well when it has both Wifi and a cell connection. I have a damn microcell in my house and somehow I went roaming while I was reading forums on the internet over Wifi.. I watch the antenna drop to 0-2 bars. Again, this is within 20 feet of the microcell.

    If I turn off the wifi? it's fine. I also notice signal issues on normal days outside of the home. As I sit in my office a couple dozen floors up, I've been on 4/4 bars the entire time.
