Sprint HTC EVO and Samsung Epic?
I want to know ALL the features that the Epic has and ALL the features that the EVO has. If both of them share the same ability, list it on both lists. Thanks.

Winner: Samsung Epic 4G
When it comes to power, neither phone is a slouch, but minor differences do manifest a marked gap between them. Samsung uses a 1GHz Hummingbird chip that shares a bloodline with the one used in the iPhone 4, while the EVO 4G uses a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Which wins out when hummingbirds and dragons go to battle? The runty little bird powering the Epic. Check out AndroidCentral’s benchmark of the EVO 4G and Samsung Captivate (which has almost identical specs to the Epic 4G, but comes on AT&T) side by side. It averaged 55.1 fps to 42.9 fps in a gaming test, and turned in higher scores in the Neocore processing benchmark, as well.
Winner: HTC EVO 4G
What might be the greyest area in our comparison comes down to a matter of preference. With a 4.3-inch LCD screen, the HTC EVO 4G has both immense size and sunlight-resistance in its favor. With a 4.0-inch OLED screen, the Samsung Epic 4G looks like a glittering gem beside its super-sized HTC counterpart… but fades to a dingy bluish gray the moment you bring it out into the sun. Resolution on both models is an identical 800 x 480. While movie fans might prefer the Epic’s brilliant color, we’re awarding this one to the EVO 4G based on practicality.
Winner: HTC EVO 4G
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Resolution does not make a camera. But in this case, the 8-megapixel camera in the EVO 4G really is a better shot than the 5-megapixel camera in the Epic 4G. Our test shots showed the Epic returning overly dark outdoor shots in comparison to the EVO 4G, even though they come closer to parity indoors. Small a difference as it makes, the EVO 4G also has a two LEDs for its flash, while the Epic gets only one.
Winner: HTC EVO 4G
Besides opening the door for faster Web surfing and services, the 4G connectivity has made it possible to make face-to-face videoconference calls without Wi-Fi. Both the EVO 4G and Epic 4G offer front-facing cameras to make it possible, but the EVO 4G once again outstacks the Epic 4G on resolution, offering 1.3 megapixels to its 0.3 megapixels (VGA). That said, it doesn’t pose much of a practical difference, considering bandwidth requirements will crush video quality down to a blotchy mess anyway. We’ll hand this one to HTC for the tech specs – with a bright red asterisk that resolution matters even less than normal here.
The EVO 4G taught us that you don’t go fast without burning a little gas to do it. The phone quickly earned a reputation for dismal battery life with heavy 4G use, and not surprisingly, HTC never posted official estimates for it. Funny thing: Neither has Samsung for the Epic 4G. While the manufacturers grin and shrug rather than delivering “official” battery estimates, our unscientific testing yielded about six hours of on and off use on the EVO 4G, and the Epic 4G performed very similarly. No surprise, considering they both use 1500 mAh batteries. Chalk this one up to a draw.

the actual distinction is the slideout QWERTY keyboard, the little greater suited show screen on the Epic, and the Epic's .3 inch smaller show screen. Gaming is greater suited on Evo because of the fact it has greater show screen actual sources and is larger. on line video streaming could be somewhat greater suited on Evo because of the show screen, yet the two have quickly processors, and are 4G in a position. For downloading movies on the Epic, you flow to Samsung's Media Hub. For the Evo, you flow to the equipped-in Blockbuster app. in my view, i've got had an Evo for somewhat over a month, and have no longer something yet good issues to declare approximately it. additionally, i attempted out an Epic, and that i felt the keyboard became into flat and too extensive.

you can stare and compare at Sprintpcs.com
Evo is 4.3 inch screen vs Epic 4 inch
Evo Fulltouch Epic is touch /w slide out keyboard
other than that, is basically no other comparison. I prefer the Evo, it has a bigger screen.
