With 4 and a half stars and an Editor's Choice, the Samsung Epic 4G is one of our mostly highly rated phones ever. Though the single-core phone is starting to show its age now, we still love the phone's gorgeous Super AMOLED display, clear audio, and -- of course -- its excellent slider keyboard.
The keyboard offers plenty of space between the keys, and provides excellent tactile feedback. We liked that the number row isn't placed too close to the bottom of the display to make it cramped. What's more, the phone offers dedicated Menu, Back, Home and Search buttons. An @ key would have been nice, but otherwise it's hard to improve on the Epic 4G's keyboard.
