One of our phones has a contract that is up and I could upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch that was released just today on Sprint.
Only one problem… Nobody that I called in the Greenville area has one! One person told me only 200 of the top stores got them today and those 200 stores only received 2 each.
So I will wait a while, or I could buy it online at sprint.com.
Why do I want it? Last year about this time, we replaced our aging Blackberry phones with Samsung Galaxy S Epic 4G phones and have loved them! BUT, that was this, this is now. The new phone does not have a keyboard built-in, so it is much thinner, and it also has a much larger display. The battery life is improved to boot.
As far as speed, the new phone has a 1.2Ghz DUAL CORE processor, compared to the 1Ghz single core we currently have.
The OS is upgraded, the camera is 8 megapixels. What’s not to like?
Apparently the size. Some people don’t like that bigger 4.5″ screen, compared to the 4.3″ screen in our current phones.
We’ll see… Maybe by next week I can find one?
Thoughts? OH, and don’t make it about carriers. Sprint has done a great job of keeping us happy. Verizon would be our 1st choice, but we’re locked in for a little while longer with 3 of our phones.
Have a great weekend!
