Cons

touchscreen isn't very forgiving, need to hit the icon perfectly with little margin for error

Plastic build

1 agrees

Comes pre-loaded with Samsung TouchWiz, which some may not like compared to "true" Android UI

1 agrees

Kind of big and bulky

1 agrees

speakers are on the back, so you can't put the phone down if on speaker-phone without muffling the person you're speaking with

The Samsung Epic 4G Touch is a subsidized Samsung Galaxy S II offering released in September 2011. This phone shouldn't be confused with the Samsung Epic 4G which bears a similar name but is a very different smart phone. The Epic 4G Touch has been upgraded to Android 2.3.4, dual-core CPU and a larger 4.5" Super AMOLED screen. It features both a front-facing and rear-facing camera (with flash). Unlike the Epic 4G, this phone does not have a keyboard.

This "expert" review is a disservice to the incredible phone that is misidentified here. This is actually reviewing the previous Epic 4G and is not the Samsung Galaxy S II EPIC 4G TOUCH that it represents to be reviewed here. So Please remove the incorrect review. The Epic 4G Touch has a 4.52 inch Super Amoled screen unsurpassed in today's smartphones. It runs on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread. It also has an 8 megapixel camera that captures video in full 1080p HD. I also has a front facing 2 megapixel camera for video chat. The processor varies sligtly in its different versionsfor AT&T, and Sprint models are usinga dual core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 Mali-400 GPU chipset while T-Mobile's version uses a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm APQ8060 processor. Sprint's Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch battery is Li-Ion 1800mAh battery offering 10 hours of talk time. One of the best batteries in the industry. These are just a few examples of the inicorrect information included in the review at this site. I own this phone. It is awesome. It isn't even simiilar to the phone reviewed here pretending to be the Epic 4G Touch.

Thanks for pointing this out. The original writer obviously confused the two phones. We'll get this fixed ASAP. Please note the "Edit Product" link at the top right of the page. Feel free to make any necessary correction if so inclined.

I've rewritten the report, and updated some of the links to reflect the Epic 4G Touch and not the Epic 4G.
