    Shortly after Sprint got its version of the Samsung Galaxy S II in the form of the Epic 4G Touch, we started hearing from users who were running into all sorts of issues with the radios on their phones, with problems ranging from slow data speeds, to dropped calls, to signal loss requiring a reset. Last week one user complained about loss-of-signal problems to the extent that Sprint and Samsung reached out to him, supposedly detailing their efforts to fix it. Not only was he offered the opportunity to try out the in-testing fix, but he managed to extract it from his phone with the help of ...

    Previously we compared the Samsung Epic 4G Touch to the Motorola Photon 4g on Sprint. In this video we continue our comparison series, this time with the Epic 4G Touch and the HTC EVO 3D, both of which are available for $199 after a new two-year agreement on Sprint. The most notable difference between the two devices is that the Epic 4G Touch is much thinner and lighter than the EVO 3D, despite having a larger screen. But the EVO 3D is also a 3D-capable device, meaning it can record and playback 3D images and video.

    According to a relatively large thread over at Reddit, many Sprint customers running Android are complaining about reduced data speeds on the network since the Apple iPhone 4S joined the line-up. In certain cases the speed decrease is dramatic, going all the way down to 200-500kbps instead of what should be regarded as relatively normal 1Mbps. Of course this always depends on the coverage, signal strength and region but if you're on Sprint and rocking an Android phone, like the fresh Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, let us know whether you feel the iPhone 4S is feeding on your data speeds. ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S II for Sprint, the Epic 4G Touch, did really well in our review and if you want to buy the phone you might want to consider Amazon instead of paying $199 to Sprint. $99.99 over at Amazon is $100 better than Sprint's price on the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch. The price goes with a two-year contract but you'll pay less for the phone with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, eight-megapixel camera and 8GB of internal storage. This might be an American carrier variant but the Galaxy S II recently got the "Phone of the Year" award from ...

    Sprint currently has two powerful, high-end Android phones available for sale at the $199 price point: the Epic Touch 4G (essentially a Galaxy S II but with a larger display) and the Motorola Photon 4G. Both devices offer dual-core CPUs with a gigabyte of RAM, plus WiMax 4G connectivity on Sprint. The display on the Photon 4G is higher resolution with 960x540 pixels, but the Super AMOLED Plus display of the Epic 4G Touch is a sight to behold, thanks to fantastic contrast. In this video, we compare the hardware and software of the Epic Touch 4G and the Photon 4G, plus compare web browsing ...

    Samsung's Galaxy S II may be just hitting US shores, but that doesn't mean that you'll necessarily end up be stuck paying the higher prices we often see associated with brand-new hardware. If you know where to look, we've seen a couple places you can find Galaxy S II handsets already discounted to just under $100. Sprint's option, the Epic 4G Touch, is still around $200 when bought from Sprint. You can knock $50 off that total by shopping around a little, but the best deal to be found looks like it's over at Amazon. There, you'll be able to order the Epic 4G Touch with a new service ...

    When we recently ran Samsung's Galaxy S II on Sprint – the Epic 4G Touch – through its paces, we were mostly pleased with performance of its data connection, even though we did notice the odd hiccup. You can count us among the lucky, then, because apparently there are a good number of Epic 4G Touch users who have been running into far more serious connectivity problems with their new phones. Is this Apple's "antennagate" all over again? We're hearing that Epic 4G Touch owners are having calls dropped on them and experiencing much slower-than-expected data speeds. We're not sure if this ...

    The Samsung Galaxy S II is one of the most highly anticipated devices to arrive in the US in quite some time, and Sprint is the first to receive it in the form of the Epic 4G Touch (shortened name for the sake of time). With a massive 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, a 1800mAh and a Samsung Exynos dual-core 1.2GHz processor, the phone certainly looks to be quite the powerhouse. But has this new Android phone been able to live up to the hype? Read on for the full review!

    In this video, we are taking a closer look at the software of the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch. There is a minor amount of bloatware included, but at least some of it can be uninstalled. The new Motion based activities are useful, and the general UI is very snappy. The Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch is available from Sprint for $199 with a two year contract.

    It's only been a couple of weeks since Samsung launched the American carrier variants of its successful Galaxy S II and only a couple of hours since the first model, the Epic 4G Touch, is available and we already have a source code. If you are interested in taking a look, dismantling, tampering with or any other geeky activity related to the Sprint Epic 4G Touch, you're in luck as the source code is now available. Head over to the source link and search for the phone's model number, D710. You can then download the firmware and if you're a ROM chef you can play with it and maybe help ...
