Samsung Epic 4G Review round-up

The usual suspects have posted the first round of Sprint’s Samsung Epic 4G reviews today. All three of them (Engdaget, Gizmodo, and Slashgear) have found the Epic 4G to be the best Android handset currently on the market and definitely a step up from the HTC EVO 4G available on the same carrier.

I’m currently using a Galaxy S and can confirm that Samsung has done an awesome job this time around and the 720P capturing mode is really good IMO (I’ll talk about it once I post my HTC Wildfire review really soon).

So here’s some early impressions about the platform’s video experience. Nothing fancy at all, just basic stuff to see how things work and play. Also remember that this is all based on Beta software and OS and non retail hardware.
