HTC EVO 4G (Android): Sprint’s first 4G phone originally started out life as a 3G-only Android device. The EVO 4G, however, adds Sprint’s blazing 4G network to an already powerful phone.

Sporting a massive 4.3-inch touchscreen, front and rear-facing cameras and an HDMI-out port for up to 1080p display on another screen, the EVO 4G is a personal multimedia powerhouse. The EVO, also comes with Swype preinstalled, as well as Flash support, a 32GB SD card slot and is mobile hotspot-capable.

If you’re looking for a reason to switch to Sprint, the EVO 4G would be a great reason.

Top Specs:

  • 4.3-inch touchscreen
  • 1GHz Snapdragon processor
  • Dual cameras
  • micro-SD card slot upgradable to up to 32GB
  • Swype keyboard

Samsung Epic 4G (Android): That’s right – another Galaxy S Android phone (they’re everywhere, right?). The Epic 4G from Samsung is a 4G-capable smartphone, just like the EVO 4G. What’s different is this bad boy packs in a sliding QWERTY keyboard for those who like to get more physical with their devices. And while significantly bigger (and heftier) than other Galaxy S devices, the Epic 4G more than makes up for its mass in features. Superior call quality, a 5-megapixel camera with flash and a gorgeous 4-inch Super AMOLED display make up one knockout of a phone.

Top Specs:

  • 4-inch touchscreen
  • Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  • 5-megapixel camera with LED flash
  • HD video recording
  • Great voice quality when making/receiving phone calls
  • Mobile hotspot-capable with support for up to five devices
