Sprint mobile has a reasonable selection of Android phones with eleven currently available. The current three most popular Sprint Android phones are the HTC EVO 4G, the Samsung Epic 4G, and the new Nexus S 4G. The most notable feature that all three of the above phones have is 4G-web browsing. These three phones are the only phones from Sprint that are able to take advantage of Sprint's 4G WiMax network. This gives you much quicker internet browsing speeds in comparison to other Smartphone's on 3G. The down side to 4G is that your battery will not last as long as when you are using 3G. Read on to find out the advantages of each phone.
The Samsung Epic 4G's biggest difference to the EVO and Nexus is the large easy to use physical QWERTY keyboard. The Epic has one of the most popular keyboards out of all the Androids. Hence, it is an excellent choice for physical keyboard enthusiasts. Other popular features are the high quality display (Super AMOLED screen); front facing 1.3-mega-pixel VGA camera; WiFi hot spot capabilities for up to five devices; and quick daily operating speeds with its 1 GHz processor. The somewhat large and bulky Epic has raised some criticism for its design and is reasonably expensive at 180 Dollars from your local Sprint store with a two-year contract.
The HTC EVO 4G has the advantage of having a more impressive 8-mega-pixel rear camera versus the 5-megapixel cameras in the Nexus and Epic. The EVO has WiFi hot spot connectivity for up to 8 devices, similar operating speed to the Epic and Nexus with a 1GHz snapdragon processor, and a large 4.3 Inch touch screen. The battery live of the EVO is poor and will cause you to re-charge regularly.
The Nexus S has only recently hit the stores and is the latest addition to Sprint's Android devices. As a result, the Nexus has the advantage of running on the latest operating system from Android, commonly called Gingerbread (Android 2.3). The combination of 4G and Gingerbread makes the Nexus an attractive phone. Both the Epic and the HTC EVO ship with the dated Android 2.1 operating system. It is expected that an official update to Gingerbread will be available for the EVO and the Epic in the near future. For advanced Android users who have 'rooted' their Android phones there are unofficial updates available online to install Gingerbread. The Nexus is Sprint's first 'pure-Google Android' phone. This is a popular feature, as the interface does not have manufacture overlays like the Epic and EVO. This results in quicker updates to the latest Android operating systems because the manufacture interface does not need to be re-programmed to handle new operating system updates. From a cosmetic preference there are a number of users that prefer the standard Google interface versus the HTC and Samsung interfaces. The Nexus ships with a 4 inch "Contour" Super AMOLED display, a quick 1 GHz Hummingbird processor, a front facing VGA 1.2 mega pixel camera, WiFi hot spot ability and has Google voice. For media lovers looking for extra storage the down side to the Nexus is there is no external memory slot.
