Went to our local Mall and stopped at the Sprint Kiosk to check the Epic and Evo and my what a difference in their displays. The Epics Display using I believe a screen saver was amazing.

I guess it depends on how much you want to spend on a phone and how large it can be.

From Samsung Epic 4G Review (Sprint) - Smartphones - CNET Reviews


"The good: The Samsung Epic 4G has a knockout Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz processor, a front-facing camera, an impressive QWERTY keyboard, a 5.0-megapixel camera with an LED flash, and supports Sprint's 4G WiMax network. It is capable of acting as a mobile Wi-Fi hot spot for up to five devices.
The bad: The Samsung Epic 4G is the bulkiest of the Galaxy S phones and also the priciest. It also requires a costly data plan.
The bottom line: The Samsung Epic 4G is a multimedia powerhouse with features the other Galaxy S phones don't have. Unfortunately, it comes with a big price tag."

Thanks for the link to cnet. I guess the downside would be the physical size. Since it is a slider it appears to have bulk. But I will admit it is not lacking on features this is for sure.

This is actually the phone I was looking at before I decided to wait for the dual-core Androids. Though, I'm not sure what CNET means by "costly data plan" as it's the same plan as you'd be needing for the EVO. It's a $10 charge for the ability to use 4G... which IMO is silly and borderline stupid for people who don't live in a 4G area.

Well, when I'm outside on a sunny day, I have to put my hand up to give the screen shade or the whole screen is washed out. I did change my screen settings lately so I need to see if its true still.

The screen is great though.

Hmm.. that is dissapointing. Personally, I'd still prefer AMOLED over LCD... the contrast in normal lighting is impressive.
