Sprint drops the price of the Samsung Epic 4G to $200 with a contract
Call it timing, but the arrival of the HTC EVO Shift 4G over on Sprint's lineup has caused another device to shed some money off its cost of ownership. Probably one of the most alluring devices to grace Sprint in recent memory, the Samsung Epic 4G is now priced at $199.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate.

At that level, it's almost a no-brainer to choose it over competitive devices like the HTC EVO 4G and EVO Shift 4G seeing that it packs a wallop of impressive features. Compared to the $150 on-contract priced HTC EVO Shift 4G, the Epic 4G offers a larger Super AMOLED display and a front facing camera to tastefully agree with that extra data premium you'll be paying per month.

Now that it's price more fittingly with some of the other high-end smartphone contenders out are, will it be enough for you to make the plunge and stick with the Samsung Epic 4G over other comparable smartphones on Sprint's lineup?

I've adapted to Video Chat quite nicely on the Evo. Now my Wife has expressed her interest in Video Chat but requires a working keyboard. This price now solidified the decision. Enjoy your new phone sweetheart! John B.

That is the price that it should've came out at. I still think that I'm going to get the Evo Shift in April.
