In this video, we review the software of Sprint’s Samsung Epic 4G Touch Android smartphone. This Galaxy S II variant runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread with Samsung’s custom TouchWiz 4.0 UX. As you will see in the video above, Samsung’s in-house 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor enables this device to power through just about everything. In other words, “lag” is not in this phone’s dictionary. We cover the UI, lockscreen, notification bar, apps, widgets, software keyboards, customization options, live wallpaper usage, gestures, Web browser, and more – all of which look brilliant on the 4.52-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. We also expect the Epic 4G Touch to receive an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012, and we hope that upgrade will come sooner rather than later.
Note: if you want the regular wallpaper shown in the video, you can download that here. The two live wallpapers demoed are Koi LWP and Haunted House HD LWP, both of which can be found in the Android Market.
We covered the 8 megapixel camera software in an earlier video – you can check that out below.
