There are plenty of people who will think the lightweight and thin Epic Touch 4G feels cheap. I don't blame them. HTC sells rock-solid devices with beautiful aluminum or soft-touch rubberized cases, and Apple's iPhone 4 is made of metal and two sheets of glass. The Epic Touch 4G isn't nearly as sturdy, but it's better looking than most phones and gives off a premium vibe. Sprint's model is almost identical to the European Galaxy S II but it offers a slightly tweaked industrial design. Its edges and corners are rounded, as opposed to the squared corners on the AT&T and European models.

The Epic 4G Touch is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Samsung Exynos processor that was swift at executing any process I threw at it. Applications opened and closed almost instantly, and it was noticeably faster than the Droid Charge, which has a single-core 1GHz processor.
