Samsung Epic 4G Touch (Sprint) Video Transcript
-Hey everyone, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at cnet.com, and I am here to bring you a First Look at the Samsung Galaxy S2, which was just announced here in New York. I'm holding here the Sprint version, which will be called the Samsung Epic 4G Touch and they are actually coming first to market. They'll be available at September 16th for 199.99 with a 2-year contract so very fair price. What you're getting is a [unk] version of the Galaxy S. You've got a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen. They've also updated the Touchwiz with interface widgets. A little more control of our customization like resizable widgets and more animation, which is very nice. Up front, you've got a 2-megapixel camera for video calling. On the back, you've got an 8-megapixel camera with flash and there is a dual core processor under here so you can shoot video at 1080p. Software wise, it's running Android 2.3.4. And again, like I said, it's running the latest version of Touchwiz. You've also got more security options here. They offer on-device encryption as well as full Microsoft accessing [unk]. Spring has added some of their services on here such as Sprint ID, Sprint Zone, Sprint Mobile Wallet, and things like that, but overall looks like a very nice upgrade for the Samsung Epic 4G. Unfortunately, no keyboard for those who have their physical button, but again very nice, very thin here. Spring has added a textured back unlike some of the others so offers a nice, more of a premium feel. I'm Bonnie Cha. This has been your First Look at the Samsung Epic 4G Touch for Sprint.

Samsung Epic 4G Touch - black (Sprint) Review
The good: The Samsung Epic 4G Touch boasts a large and bright 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. With a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, the Android smartphone is fast and 4G-capable. Camera quality is also excellent.
The bad: Call quality could be better. The phone is large and has a plastic build.
The bottom line: The Samsung Epic 4G Touch offers speedy performance, a beautiful screen, and a great multimedia experience to make it one of Sprint's top Android phones, but its large size won't be for everyone.
