Samsung Epic 4G / Motorola Droid 2: Speed vs Marketing

By Peter Chubb - Aug 2, 2010

The Samsung Galaxy S is a strange cell phone, as all four major U.S. carriers will offer their own variant of the smartphone – all with different names. The one that looks set to be the better of the four is the Epic 4G from Sprint, but will have tough competition from the latest handset from Motorola, the Droid 2 on Verizon.

You have to wonder which one will win out, will it be the Epic 4G with Sprint exploiting the speed of their device, or will it be Big Red with a huge marketing campaign. One thing is certain – Sprint had better hope that they would not run short of stock as they have with the HTC EVO 4G.

The Epic 4G looks to be an awesome smartphone with its 4-inch screen and 4G capabilities. This alone will give it the edge over the Droid 2 and its other siblings as well. The full QWERTY slid-out keyboard is something else the rest of the Galaxy S range does not have.

The Droid 2 and the Samsung Epic 4G are both expected to launch sometime this month, we are just waiting for a specific date and price. Which of the two would you choose?
