Samsung Epic 4G Touch getting low speeds, drops

Samsung's just-shipped Epic 4G Touch has been facing significant launch hiccups after numerous reports of reception problems. Owners of the dual-core Android phone have mentioned dropping calls and slow speeds regardless of where they live. The issue isn't automatic, those on the Android Central boards and elsewhere have said, and some users have mentioned having no problems.

Both Samsung and Sprint are aware of the problem and say they're "undergoing analysis" of the problems. One Epic 4G Touch owner was told that a fix was enroute and should be available within one to two weeks.

The flaw still comes at a less than ideal time for Samsung. Sprint is expected to add the iPhone to its roster for the first time this week and will be shifting much of its focus just as the Epic 4G Touch is facing problems and might prompt some to return their phones.

    Here's the real fix.

    Take it back, get a refund, and buy an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5.
