    Who has one? :p

    A fair number of people jumped on the EVO, but it seems the Epic isn't creating near as much buzz.

    I would have one if Sprint/Clear had 4G in OC. :)

    But I do have the Vibrant, which I really like! :cool:

    It has an amazing screen. But after my experience with the Moment, I am afraid of Samsung products.

    I looked at it in the store the other day, and it is nice. The keyboard is just OK, I was not a huge fan. Also, I wouldnt pay an extra $50 for the epic over the evo. Actually, I don't feel like giving Sprint any more money until they fix their glaring issues with EVDO in many places.

    And a awesome processor too. :) All I will say then is go try it out at a Sprint Store.

    I just hope my neighborhood gets good 4G to make up for the bad EV/1X coverage. :)

    Yes, the KB isn't the greatest. But with Swype installed I doubt you would ever use it. To me the processor and screen are well worth the extra $50. Too bad it doesn't have the 16GB of internal storage like my Vibrant does.

    I really don't think that is a Samsung issue. The Sprint 3G network is really over-burdened in places. For example, where I am in Michigan, at peak times the local site has over 150 EVDO users, and EVDO speeds crawl at about 15-20 kbps. That is not a phone issue, but network related. Sprint lagged behind in network upgrades for a long time, and now it is a big problem.

    People that own both the EVO and Epic report the EVO does over 500kbps upload in one hand whie the Epic can't even do 150kbps upload while in the other hand. Sounds like a Samsuck problem to me! :p

    I guess they are seeing a different problem than me. Around town tonight, my evo was hardly able to achieve 20 kbps down. At the Sprint store back in NY, I had my evo and the stores epic side by side, and both got under 100 kbps several times.
