Sprint Samsung Epic 4G vs Verizon Motorola Droid 2 Episode I

Two of the hottest phones this month are definitely the Verizon Motorola Droid 2, which debuted last week and the Sprint Samsung Epic 4G, a Galaxy S Phone, which makes its debut on August 31st.  I’m sure you realized it wouldn’t take long until people started comparing these two devices and seeing how they stack up.  Check out the video below! There is definitely more to test such as the cameras, flashes, and video capability. There are also places where one phone clearly has an advantage, for the Motorola Droid 2 it’s the fact that it shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo, and we all know what a nightmare waiting for an update can be. The clear advantage with the Sprint Samsung Epic 4G, is definitely the 4G/Wimax capability, the front facing camera and in my opinion the 5 row Qwerty vs the 4 row.  Check it out leave your comments and tell us what you think

  1. I would have liked to see a speed comparison WITH the 4G on simply because to people who do live in 4G areas like yourself, it’s a genuine comparison. It’s not so much comparing apples-to-apples as it is comparing the fastest each phone can download, which is just as relevant. If you live in a 4G area and the comparison shows a really notable difference, that could be a real selling factor.

    Overall good comparison, though. Probably should add that FroYo’s well-confirmed to be coming to the Epic 4G, so while that’s definitely a win for the Droid 2 for the moment, long-term it will likely not be relevant. The big asterisk, though, is how slow Samsung is with their updates.
