"The Samsung Epic 4G is a multimedia powerhouse with features the other Galaxy S phones don't have. Unfortunately, it comes with a big price tag."

CNET, August 2010

"The Epic 4G is a great device. Killer, even. Nothing speaks to us more strongly during the course of a review than finishing it and saying, "alright, I'm ready to buy this thing," and the Epic is on the short list of phones that has managed to do it. More than its Galaxy S siblings, it feels like the Epic has overcome its shortcomings -- notably the forgettable UI skin -- to shine, and it's a phone we could easily imagine using day to day."

CNET, August 2010

"When all is said and done, the Epic 4G’s combination of power, functionality, and flexibility render it highly desirable—and the front-facing camera’s potential hasn’t even been tapped yet. If you’ve been waiting for a great 4G phone with a slider keyboard, your wait is over."

MaximumTech, September 2010

"The Samsung Epic 4G is an amazing device and certainly one worthy of standing on the same pedestal as the HTC EVO 4G. The device is quick, responsive, and — perhaps most importantly — you feel like you are using Sprint’s flagship device (even if technically it isn’t). Would we have loved a key on the keyboard moved and maybe a better video capturing experience? Yes… but that didn’t really hinder our overall impression of the device."
