Anyone have a Samsung Epic? I'm getting one on Friday and am so excited. I've been a smartphone user for about four years, and in that time have been through four phones (that sounds horrible, but in my defense my Blackberry did break once and then get stolen, so I replaced it twice) – I've had two Blackberry 7108s, an 8130 and a Palm Pre. After a year with the Pre and having it break on me about six times and get sub-satisfactorily repaired, I allowed myself to follow in my father's footsteps and be swayed in the way of the Android.

He just got his Droid X, but as I live nowhere near him I can't play with it; I did get to toy around with an Epic at the store, though, and I really enjoyed it.

So if anyone has one, give me some pros and cons? I'm especially nervous about potential damage to the screen, as that's one of the things that happened to my Pre. My face makeup damaged the touchscreen, for crying out loud.


(And since my area won't have 4G coverage until January, I'm adding an extra $10 to my plan for essentially nothing, and occasionally wonder if the 4G coverage is worth it ... if any of you have experience with 4G, I'd love to hear about that, too!)

Also Evo. I'd check out user comments about the Epic to see if people complain about the screen getting scratched easily.

Reading up on my Evo, I found that the camera would get scratched up easily, unless you set it face-down; then the face would scratch. So, I got a case designed to address those two issues.

So, find out what others are saying about the Epic, and you'll know what kind of case to get (if any).
