Sprint customers can now order the Samsung Galaxy S II, Epic 4G Touch online
The rest of the specs for the Epic 4G Touch include 1GB of RAM, Android 2.3.4 installed, and a 8MP camera with AF and LED flash on back, capturing video at 1080p. A front facing camera comes in at 2MP. 16GB of storage can be pumped up to as much as 48GB using a microSD card. With a signed 2-year contract, the phone will cost you $199.99 or $499.99 without a pact.
So, Sprint customers, you have the first crack at the Samsung Galaxy S II in North America. Will you drop what you're doing right now and pick up the one phone that has made the Quadrant Benchmark test shake with fear, or will are you waiting to see what the the holiday season will bring?

Stop shouting and use your spell checker. And grammar checker.

Lol, you're an ass. This phone will be just another lame-o, out of date Android device. Android has more bugs in it than my dogs sh*t!

If your dog sh*t has bugs IN IT, then you should spend more time taking care of you dog, than trolling the internet.

I bet all the moto bionic owners feel stupid right now the gs2 is just so much better
20. RodThaBod (Posts: 4; Member since: 24 Oct 2010)
Why should Droid Bionic buyers feel stupid? This phone might be good but it is on another network. Bionic is Verizon and this is on Sprint. Now look who is stupid. You!

Yes, it will be on sale on sunday. However only the top 250 stores that carry sprint will have it only launch day.
10. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 3056; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
yes online ONLY they aren't even going to be in f**king stores until next week at least. Stayed up until 9 god damn in the morning to see if sprint stores had them in stock and nope, now I'm too pissed to go back to sleep and I gotta be up for work a 3:30 pm. How stupid can sprint be to make their customers wait even longer for their damn phone. We have been waiting forever now. Yes I'm mad bro.

RORYREVOLUTION you will definitely have the ultimate beast phone that money can buy. So please have some patience. I know it sucks but you WILL be rewarded. Have you tried Wal-Mart? I know they have the phone for $99.99 with a 2 year contract. Check them out. My wife upgrades in October & that is where I am going to get her the Samsung Galaxy S II or the Samsung Epic 4G Touch!
29. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 3056; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
Wal-Mart shows they are out of stock nothing said about them being in stores and it now shows 149 for the price.

Actually, just give the employees a bowl of chili and cheese with beans or a burrito from taco bell so they can go to the back and poop it out and put it in a box. That's your Galaxy S2 right there lol.

Its so hard to not cave in to such a powerful device, but I think my days of Android are over. They have the potential to be the best on the board and in your hands, but all bullisht aside, the phones are way too buggy. Force closes, terrible battery life, constant app killing, I don't even want to deal with it anymore.
Probably going with the iPhone5. But if Apple doesn't deliver (which I highly doubt), this will be the phone I'm getting.
30. WakaFlakaD (Posts: 395; Member since: 30 Apr 2011)
Same opinion. Currently using the first Galaxy S. I will be the iPhone 5 user soon.
42. Dj21o (Posts: 437; Member since: 19 May 2011)
EDIT: I have been conversating with people over at XDA who just got the phone. Battery life is AMAZING, even without root. No app killers are needed, and it is the fastest phone they have used.
I'm going to pick mine up either today or tomorrow (if anyone has it) lol.
It's not worth giving Apple all the glory when this is such a monster. I seriously doubt I will dislike my experience on this phone :)

Preordered it the other day and today got an email saying my order is now backordered....PISSED! LOL
33. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 3056; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
Yea I called to cancel my order because of the same exact reason and they said ok but your card was charged and ill have to wait 3-7 business days for a damn refund.
37. ecml490 (unregistered)
Well I was going to cancel my order as well but she told me that they will have them back in stock this Tuesday so if it's not shipped after Tuesday I may cancel...
38. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 3056; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
You might as well cancel now, at least hopefully by then you'll get your refund so you can find one in the store. I spoke with one Sprint store around me and they said they would have it in stores this Sunday.
32. QWIKSTRIKE (Posts: 946; Member since: 09 Mar 2010)
It seems Sprint not going to far out of the way to promote this.....I bet the I phone is the reason. Why promote t6his when you know they need to have great Iphone results
41. belovedson (Posts: 832; Member since: 30 Nov 2010)
think carefully to what you just said. if the iphone is coming out in october dont you think they need to advertise now. why would sprint need to advise at this moment for the sg2. just about everyone know its about to blowup. i would definitely get it even though i am a keyboard user. playing with. its mind blowingly fast, crisp, light, and straight sexy.

Walked into the main sprint here in Fresno and just picked mine up about 4 hours ago. I'm coming over from ATT's Captivate. This phone is a beast and battery life is phenomenal! My Captivate had horrible overheating issues. Nobody knows what's wrong with it so I decided to move to a new carrier since ATT's been giving me the shaft for the past 3 years.

Love my gs2. The external speakers, however, are absolutley horrendous. Recently had the Photon(has a very nice speaker bar) and the Evo3D whose speakers were outstanding. My daughter enjoys mickey mouse club in the coffee shop before school..can't hear a damn thing through this tiny little speaker. Needs to be plugged into earbuds or in a quiet area. Otherwise a flawless device.
