There are two high profile 4G capable Android handsets from Sprint this season, the HTC EVO 4G and the upcoming Samsung Epic. Of course, considering the rate at which new Android handsets are being churned out, EVO 4G is not as “new” as the Epic is. And consequently, Sprint would not want to glorify a device that is already out in the market and ruin the market for an upcoming Sprint phone.
For instance, the new Epic 4G comes with a 5-megapixel camera whereas EVO has an 8-megapixel unit. Also, the EVO has a marginally larger display. Nevertheless, the Samsung Epic does come with some interesting features of its own. Firstly, the display is 4-inches of Super AMOLED goodness. Also, users uncomfortable with a virtual keyboard can instead use the slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard. But most importantly, Samsung Epic allows you to stream content from your phone to any DLNA certified device wirelessly. EVO on the other hand requires a wired HDMI output.
It is not surprising that Sprint has spoken mainly about the positive aspects of the upcoming Samsung Android handset. But I believe EVO will continue to give Epic a good competition thanks to some amazing features. Check out the Sprint video below.
