"One of the best smartphones for 2010"5.0 starson by KoolaidForYou
Pros: 1. Sprint's data plan $69. 2. 4g phone (If you are in the coverage areas) 3. Android OS, the best OS on the market today. That is if you want to use your phone for the first primary reason to use a smartphone, Organization!
Cons: 4g coverage is not everywhere so if you are in one of the non-4g areas, you will be paying an extra $10 per month for nothing, BUT you are still saving $50 plus dollars a month compared to At&t or Verizon.
Summary: The bottom-line is this is one of the best smartphones on the market with a company that saves you money during these hard times. Nicole Lee comment on "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.) is just NOT FAIR at ALL! bulkiest compared to other Galaxy S phones that don't have slide out keyboard? Why not compare it to other phones with slide out keyboards like the Motorola Droid! And the "priciest" part again is WRONG, so you pay what... and extra $50 but end of saving $1,200 in the price plan because your on Sprint instead of Verizon Wireless and AT&T. Don't drink the Koolaid, do some of your own research, because you will find out that CNET is not always right. They are they best and I look to them all the time, but they are human. I have the HTC EVO and I love it! And I looked at enough reviews on this phone, to know that it going to be a WINNER. I have been on VZW and ATT before and what I have found out is... THEY ALL ARE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME, an "utility company"! Have NO loyalty to companies, have loyalty to GREAT Product at fair prices. That what you get if you buy this phone or the HTC EVO. Droid & iPhone are GREAT phones, it just that they don't have a big enough difference to make a difference... if you know what I mean. Put your concern on the PLAN and COVERAGE... that what really matters. I'm LOVING Sprint right now because I am saving a total of $1,800 a year because I can got rid of my iPhone (which is more of an entertainment phone, that an organization phone) ($140 per month) and my Comcast internet ($80 per month). Think about what you can do with ALL that extra cash and HAVE one of the best smartphone ever made!
