The Epic Touch 4G available exclusively on the Sprint WiMAX 4G broadband network is just one of the several Samsung Galaxy S II versions available worldwide. But in many ways, it is the most important. It arrived in the US as the first American version of the Samsung Galaxy S II that sold 10 million units its first five months in Europe and Asia. Not long after arriving at Sprint, the other major carriers in the US picked up their own version of the Galaxy S II, and global sales rocketed past the 30 million unit mark for the handset. The Samsung Epic Touch 4G recently was awarded the Best New Mobile Device award at the 4G World Conference and Expo that is dedicated solely to 4G technology.
Buy the Samsung Epic Touch 4G for as little as $99 for new customers and individual account upgrades.
Much of the success of the Samsung Epic Touch 4G lies in the fact that Samsung decided to stay in-house for several components. When the manufacturer of a smartphone also makes the display and the processor, compatibility is guaranteed to be at a maximum. The components in question that Samsung manufactured are the 4.52 inch display that ranks as the largest in the smartphone marketplace, and the dual core Exynos processor.
That 4.52 inch capacitive multitouch screen has a light sensor built in for auto display adjustment, and a proximity sensor on board for auto shut off to preserve battery life. Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus display technology delivers 16 million color visuals and 480 x 800 pixel resolution. The hardware mentioned above is a Samsung Exynos chip set, comprised of a dual core 1.2 GHz CPU and a Mali 400MP graphics processing engine. Those two components join 1.0 gigabyte of RAM memory and 16 GB of onboard storage in the hardware package.
On sale for only $99, the Samsung Epic Touch 4G is one of the best phones on the Sprint network.
A microSD slot is built in for microSD and microSDHC support, allowing for storage expansion up to 32 GB. A microUSB port is also on board, and allows for charging the handset and connecting to other devices.
