Sprint is offering up $25,000 to the winner of their Epic Mini Movie Contest (YouTube contest page, official rules), as chosen by Michael Bay, and here we have the top 10; the finalists.

[PhoneDog] Dogfight! Epic VS G2

You may have seen a ton of coverage on both these devices from our very own John Walton here at DroidDog, but you still can’t say no to a good ol’ fashion Dogfight. Aaron from Phonedog has two of the best QWERTY packin’ Androids around and is pitting them together to see who reigns supreme. It’s the Sprint Samsung Epic 4G VS T-Mobile HTC G2 with… Read more

Epic gaming hack: Who needs keys when you’ve got Swype?

My recent time with T-Mobile’s G2 taught me that I’ve become wholly reliant upon software QWERTYs. With Swype on hand, I just can’t find a convincing reason to use a slide-out, though I’m still open to finding my hardware keyboard soulmate. I’m not the only one who feels so strongly about Swype, and Cary Golomb from BrainLazy is in the same boat with his… Read more

I was anxiously awaiting an update for my Samsung Epic 4G last Thursday–the OTA that would give me access to Sammy’s new Media Hub app/service, which they officially unveiled that night.

But before I can do that, I need to get a feel for the phone I’m going to test it on, Sprint’s Epic 4G. This is Sprint’s second 4G device… Read more

ClockworkMod Recovery running on Epic 4G

Owners of Sprint’s QWERTY-packin’ 4G beast, Samsung’s Epic 4G, and fans of Android hacking/modding already know that the device has been rooted for a couple of weeks. But root doesn’t offer up a lot of options for the serious tweaker without a custom recovery image, which helps us to flash cooked ROMs and make and restore Nandroid backups. Thankfully, one… Read more
