While Sprint's 2-year contract price of $154.99 seems truly outstanding for a phone that many have called the best Android handset ever made, well, all we can say is that Walmart has done it again. Yes, the discount store might be the place to pay the lowest price on underwear and message T-Shirts, but they are beginning to make a name for themselves with low priced smartphones. With the same signed 2-year contract, you will pay $99.99 for the Samsung Epic 4G Touch at Walmart.
Want to hear the specs again? We are happy to oblige. The Samsung Epic 4G Touch is equipped with a 4.52 inch Super AMOLED Plus display and under the hood you will find the 1.2GHz Exynos dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Speaking of dual, there are two cameras aboard with the rear shooter coming in at 8MP and the front-facing one at 2MP. Video is captured at 1080p and 16GB of internal storage comes with the phone out of the box. Android 2.3 is pre-installed.
With the AT&T variant of the phone offering the same Samsung Exynos chip under the hood, the WVGA display is smaller at 4.3 inches. The T-Mobile variant will have the same 4.52 inch WVGA display as seen on the Epic 4G Touch, but will use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 1.2GHz processor instead of the Exynos. Many consider the latter to be the superior chip. When you put it all together, only the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S II has both the larger screen and the Exynos dual-core processor running the show. And now you can pre-order it from the same place you bought your socks for just $99.99 on contract.
