Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch is the smartphone equivalent of a runway model. It’s gorgeous to look at. It’s a bit larger than life, yet still maintains a trim figure. And it has a name so long you need to take a gulp of air when you’re done speaking.
Pros: The 1.2 GHz dual-core processor provides standout performance — apps open and close quickly, transitions are smooth and gameplay is great. One of the better smartphone cameras. Big screen is fantastic for games and videos.
Cons: Battery life is a drag. Onscreen keyboard is difficult to type on in portrait mode. Will go in a pocket, but doesn’t exactly “fit” in a pocket. Badly in need of a nickname.
Excerpt: Samsung had unprecedented success last year delivering its Galaxy S line of flagship Android phones to a global stage, and for good reason: it launched as one of the thinnest smartphones in the world, the homegrown 1GHz Hummingbird processor was plenty fast for its day, and the 4-inch Super AMOLED...
Pros: Blazingly fast, Thin and light, Gorgeous display
Cons: Low screen resolution compared to other high-end Android phones on the market, TouchWiz still less attractive than stock UI, Not a global phone (the Photon 4G is, for the same price)
Conclusion: It’s not really a surprise to us that the Samsung Epic 4G Touch is one of the best Android phones you can buy. We felt that the Galaxy S II kind of set the bar back when we took a look at it in May, and the Epic 4G Touch retains all that we liked from the Galaxy S II and made some needed...
Pros: Amazingly fast performance all around, High quality camera and camcorder with 1080p, Good call quality and battery life, 4.5” Super AMOLED Plus is easy on the eyes, Just 9.6mm thin and 4.5oz light
Cons: WVGA display resolution, resulting in 206 ppi, No dedicated camera key and small volume rocker, TouchWiz doesn’t hurt the phone’s performance, but we could do without it
Summary: The level of performance of the Epic 4G Touch is very high and its size makes it very comfortable to use. It feels and performs like the original Galaxy S2, in a slightly different form factor that keeps all the properties of the Galaxy S2.

Premiering on Sprint as the Epic 4G Touch , it offers a 1.2 GHz dual-core Exynos CPU, 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording...
Excerpt: The Galaxy S II. It's one of the hottest Android smartphones of 2011, and thanks to Sprint, you can get it at a subsidized (read: cheaper) price!

Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy S II devices have finally hit America. The Epic 4G Touch brings a unique experience to Sprint. The Epic Touch is equipped with a stunning 4.52″ Super AMOLED Plus screen and packs the powerful 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor. This is both beauty and the beast combined.
Summary: For those who like their screens big, the $199 Samsung Galaxy II Epic 4G Touch should be at or near the top of your list. Paradoxically, it's both lighter and larger than the Photon 4G, although that phone has a crisper qHD display, world-roaming capabilities, and a slightly faster 4G connection.
