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!

Other rumors include the Samsung SHV-E120L with a massive 4.7-inch display and a 720p [...]
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.

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 [...]
We know this is the moment many of you have been waiting for! The just announced Epic 4G Touch, Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S II is now available online from the carrier.
It goes for $199.99 with a two-year contract, or $499.99 for the phone only. It sports a 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, radio capable of 3G/4G speeds, Mobile Hotspot functionality, video chat capability, 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos SoC and a very slim form factor.
If you are currently on Sprint and considering the Galaxy S II — under the name of Sprint Epic 4G Touch — which we have recently unboxed, you can also get to know the phone a little better before purchasing as its user manual has been made available by the carrier.
Saving the PDF file from the source link will get you 190 pages of literature about the Sprint Galaxy S II where you can learn about hardware and software features of the phone. On top of Android, there’s Samsung’s own TouchWiz 4.0 user interface which makes the phone even more usable. You can [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S II is just a couple of days away from its U.S. launch and the manufacturer has released a commercial to build up the buzz and create momentum for the phone. The general idea is that it is the best phone out there because it was built by a company “wired” to deliver such products.
Some might argue that the phone is late to the American market — and that the Prime is nearing anyways — while others are just happy it finally landed and prepare to purchase one. While the ad below is inspiring nonetheless — and the phone itself is an [...]
Even though Sprint should have been the first carrier to land the Samsung Galaxy S II variant on American carriers on September 16, the Epic 4G Touch will only just come in second after Alaska’s GCI flavored phone. However, Walmart has a price which might get you passed the anger of the moment.
For $99.99 you can pre-order the Epic 4G Touch from Walmart, a price valid if you are willing to sign a two-year contract with the carrier. If you are renewing your agreement then the price for you will be $154.99, which is still pretty sweet for the Galaxy S II. Walmart is not the [...]
Samsung has finally announced the American variants of the Galaxy S II smartphone and it will be available on Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile. The three models might be Galaxy S II variants but not all of them are identical.
Screen size isn’t the only difference though — the AT&T version having a 4.3-inch screen opposed to the Sprint and T-Mobile phones that will rock a slightly larger, 4.52-inch one. It appears that while the AT&T and T-Mobile Galaxy S IIs will have NFC capabilities, the Sprint Epic 4G Touch is indeed lacking support for the technology. Is [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S II finally hit the U.S. carriers and Sprint introduced its own Epic 4G Touch with the occasion of the New York event on August 30. The phone will cost you $200 but Wirefly has an excellent deal if you head over and pre-order a unit from them.
If you’ve already decided that Samsung Galaxy S II is the way for you to go and Sprint is your carrier, you might be able to save $50 because that’s the amount Wirefly manages to beat Sprint at for the phone’s price. The Samsung Epic 4G Touch on Sprint will cost you $149.99 is you pre-order one from [...]
Tonight we were at the U.S. launch of the Samsung Galaxy S II variations coming soon to AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. These devices are similar to Samsung’s international version of the Galaxy S II which is very popular in Europe. Five million have already been sold globally. Samsung also announced their new chief marketing officer Todd Pendleton who previously worked for Nike. The event consisted of a presentation illustrating some of the cool features in the new Galaxy S 2 devices such as the Super AMOLED+ screen, 1080p high bit rate video recording, protected HDMI output [...]
What does the future have in store for Sprint? Some information from what This Is My Next believes to be a trustworthy source has some idea, revealing some tidbits about what smartphones Sprint could be planning to release over the course of Q3 2011.
Some of the models the source mentions we’ve heard of already, or at least we likely have. He mentions a “full touch 4G” Samsung that’s on the horizon. While that doesn’t definitively nail it down as any one particular model, we are expecting Sprint to release the Galaxy Within in the next month, its [...]
We’ve recently heard that the eagerly-awaited Samsung Galaxy S2 wouldn’t come to Sprint as the Galaxy Within, as we had been expecting it to for months, but would instead find a home on the carrier as the Epic Touch 4G, and would launch sometime in September. A follow-up to that rumor reinforces the new choice of a name, and hopes to narrow down that release windows, claiming that the smartphone will go up for sale on September 9.
In addition to the Epic Touch 4G, apparently there was also word floating around that Sprint’s GS2 might be called the Epic 4G [...]
Samsung’s NYC press event is currently underway, and as is no surprise to anyone, we’re finally getting official announcements for the Galaxy S2 on US carriers. We saw some leaked information on Sprint’s GS2, the Epic 4G Touch, come out earlier today, and now we’re getting the big picture. Of the three models, Sprint’s will apparently be first to arrive, landing in the hands of customers in just a couple weeks, on September 16.
We already learned that the SGS2E4GT (what a mouthful) would feature a large 4.52-inch display, and now we can add to that [...]
This past weekend we got a look at the first proper press shots of Sprint’s upcoming Galaxy S2 device, the Epic 4G Touch. Alongside AT&T and T-Mobile’s versions of the smartphone, the Epic 4G Touch is almost certainly going to be subject of tonight’s Samsung event in New York City. Just ahead of that formal debut, the handset has already appeared on Samsung’s Mobile Product Training website.
Sadly, we can’t access the full training materials without an employee login, but what we can see does at least confirm the model’s name with Sprint, [...]
Why is it that the upcoming US launch of the Samsung Galaxy S II on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint — but not Verizon — feels a bit underwhelming? It must be because the global version of the handset is already seeing a refresh at this week’s IFA show in Germany, while domestic consumers will likely have to settle for the older specs as the device is released over the coming weeks. Nonetheless, we’ll have to live with the hand that we’re dealt, and that means getting familiar with US variants such as the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, pictured above. [...]
Back in June, we heard an assortment of rumors about upcoming smartphones on Sprint. Samsung’s Galaxy S2 was obviously mentioned, along with a sequel to the Epic 4G. We had no clue at the time that those two might end up being one-and-the-same device, but that’s how the case seems now, after the claim has arisen that the Galaxy S2 will launch on Sprint as the Samsung Epic Touch 4G.
BGR cites unnamed sources for this information, which seems to disprove earlier assumptions that Sprint’s Galaxy S2 would be the Galaxy Within. This is a bit of a surprising move for [...]
