Samsung Epic 4G vs Motorola Droid 2: Specs & Features Comparison

September 8, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Let’s imagine that you are given to pick between two feature-rich smartphones that are raring to beat each other? Tough to choose, eh? What if the two mobile are the Samsung Epic 4G and the Motorola Droid 2? What would you pick knowing that both handsets have top of the line features?

Let’s have an organized battle in here

The Samsung Epic 4G vs Motorola Droid 2 fight is sure to throw up some interesting results.

What we have here is Sprint’s Samsung Epic 4G (a version of the Galaxy S), the carrier’s second 4G phone in the US which runs Android 2.1, has a 4-inch AMOLED screen, a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor and comes with a QWERTY keyboard. Speaking of its keyboard it’s one of the best key board ever on an Android device as it comes with an extra row dedicated to numbers (a five row keyboard).

On the other hand, while the Motorola Droid 2 on Verizon has similar features, it’s the 3.7-inch screen (seems inferior compared to the Epic 4G), its sliding keyboard (upgraded for a better feel), the 1GHz Snapdragon processor and Android 2.2 under the hood, that sets it apart.

When it comes to storage, there’s 1GB of built-in space on the Samsung Epic 4G and a 16GB microSD card (expandable to 32GB), while the Droid 2 has 8GB onboard and a 8 GB MicroSD (expandable to 32GB, too).

Both come with 5MP cameras (although the Epic 4G seems to be leading, again), but the Droid 2 lacks the front-facing VGA video calling camera.  Another advantage of the Epic 4G is the fact that it “flies” when it comes to loading up your applications and that it can handle more video codecs.
