The sequel

The sequel

With the Samsung Galaxy S III expected to launch in the U.S. next month, it shouldn't be a surprise to see Sprint cut the price on its variant of the phone. The Samsung Epic 4G Touch is the only one of the three U.S. versions of the phone to be equipped with a 4.52 inch screen and the dual-core exynos processor. The new price of the phone is $149.99 with a signed two-year contract.

The Samsung Galaxy S II is considered by many to be the best Android phone ever made. Earlier this month, Samsung introduced the sequel which will launch globally by the end of this month. Three countries will be getting the LTE version of the device, the U.S., Japan and Korea. The U.S. model will hit the market in June while the other two countries are expected to  launch the phone later this summer.

It's hard to think about purchasing the Samsung Galaxy S II when the newer model is only weeks away. An incentive is needed and as a result, we would expect more price cuts for the Samsung Epic Touch 4G as we get closer to the release of the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Those who are planning on to buy this one just don't
Galaxy s3 would be arriving very soon in the US and will be coming with the Snapdragon S4 but that is not a problem since the Snapdragon S4 gives more or less the same result as quad core processors gives so that is not a problem at all and also it scored way more than the HTC One X despite being a dual core, so just wait for the Gs3 on the US cuz it would be way foolishness to buy a new phone that is an year old and was a previous flagship

Samsung will probably get rid of S-voice for the US release, since that's basically Siri lol.

I would've gotten it if Sprint didn't announce the EVO LTE at April. D:

There is no point in purchasing the E4GT now and it's for one simple reason............LTE! Regardless of if your current market has 4g or not.....why buy a phone with an inferior 4G radio in which the company is clearly moving away from. Granted, Sprint's 4G LTE network has not launched.....this is a moot point considering the Evo 4G and Epic 4G were both launched prior to 4g Wimax being launched. With the Network Vision upgrades in progress...it won't be long before initial launch markets and then the rest of the Now Network is running on all cylinders and even if you are someone who really doesn't care about 4g...the first time you get a chance to use it and experience it for yourself you will want it and if you have the E4GT....that experience is gonna be non existant for the most part.
