Oh god slews of problems, terrible battery life. Terrible performance on web browsing, 4g reception is trash, as it normal reception (phone not the area), I've tried several different roms, kernals, etc.. Nothing has fixed it. I could go into more details but I've had a slew of problems.

Oh and the camera blows.

Must be your location. I have very good 4g speeds and 3g speeds. My battery life is damn good for an android. The stock rom was crap. I have been a long time syndicate lite user and I couldn't be more pleased with my epic. However, I am looking forward to getting that HTC as well.

The screen on the Galaxy S line looks like crap too. Nice blacks doesn't make up for grainy looking crap.

Its not the area, as people at work receive better reception on Evos, and others.

My wife has the Epic 4G also and she has had a lot of strange issues with hers also. While not offering as many options, apps and features, my WP7 HTC Arrive has been great, super stable and works great as my portable media player. I wish she had gotten either the same phone as me, or the HTC Evo.

I just got the epic. Going to return it for this new fancy evo or the evo 4g. My friend got an Evo 4G and it has better reception for 4G and build quality. I like how web pages scroll on it as well, compared to the epic that is.

Epic failure.

I feel EXACTLY the same way. I have a POS blackberry curve 8330. WORST WEB BROWSER EVER. I have been eligible for an upgrade forever from sprint but the EVO 3D is the first phone that has all the specs I've been waiting for. I can't wait to have a real phone. I'm hitting the sprint website every day to try and win a free one

This explains everything. Galaxy S's screen just doesn't look good.

OMG what? The only time you notice those imperfections is with a ****ing MAGNIFYING GLASS according to that article. What, do you walk around with your phone duck tapped to your eye ball? I saved the picture onto my phone from that article (the little girl one) and tried as hard as I could to see the imperfections they are describing and it's not noticeable unless I used my co-workers magnifying glass.
To use that as a reason to justify it "not looking good" is purely moronic on every level. It's bright, it's sharp and has great colors and contrast.

I don't get it. I held an Epic and my Evo side-by-side and the Epic screen is definitely nicer. It seems to be just the colors really, but stull.

I've got damned good vision, the difference is obvious from normal viewing distance.

No it's not. My dad has the iphone 4 which has the best screen of all of those in the article by a long shot, and there is only a slight difference when held side by side looking at the same picture. It's all in your head mate.

I don't think the EVO 3d is going to be a Battery God you might think it's going to be. Sure it will be better than your EPIC. I think Engadget tested it on light use and got 14 hours. I haven't seen anymore tests out there, but that's a good indication it's not going to be stellar. Probably on par with the EVO 4g.

not by a long shot dude.

i probably have used almost every single different type of screen for mobile device in the last 3 years. As i run a business related to this kind of stuff actually in my area. i can tell ya that those review doesn't really show what the screen actual looks like at all. in no way color shifting can be that intense from your own eye. Which has been showing on those review from a camera photo.

got the samsung galaxy s 2 2 days ago, the screen is impressive. to be honest the iphone 4g screen might be too small for my taste.
