Conclusion: The Epix is a powerful touch-screen Windows Mobile business phone with incredible battery life, but some pesky interface issues and its boatload of crapware mark it as a subpar alternative to a BlackBerry or an iPhone.
Pros: Powerful hardware. Includes a full complement of wireless radios. Comprehensive mobile media support. Stellar endurance for a 3G handset.
Cons: Larger and bulkier than competitors. Buggy UI. Middling camera. Riddled with crapware.
Conclusion: The Samsung Epix has got an excellent set of features that can make your business life and personal much more organized and even fun. The integrated optical mouse is just great really, it makes using the phone that much more easier. Call quality and battery life are very good, along with the ability to take still pictures.
Pros: Cool optical mouse makes navigation easier, Large screen, Long battery life, Good still pics, Good call quality, Easy to use, Seems well made
Cons: Not real GPS, Screen glare, Choppy video, Goofy telescopic stylus
