      I bought the Samsung Epix (SGH-i907) to replace an aging Nokia phone. In fact, I ordered the Epix through AT&T’s website long before it was ever available in the retail stores. This was actually my first “smart phone” and all-in-all I am impressed.

      The Epix comes equipped Windows Mobile Professional and is the successor to the BlackJack.

      Samsung both hurt and helped the Epix in it’s overall design.


      The industry-first optical mouse is a strong plus, while the ill-placed stylus is small and hard to access. The Epix excels with its bright touch screen (square) which is an upgrade over the BlackJack’s screen.

      I found that Windows Mobile was easy to learn and had much of the feel of the normal Windows Environment. Most of the problems I have had with the Epix are ...


      • actually not hardware related, but rather software. For a $300 phone, it sure contained a lot of trial software. I found that most of the included software was actually very useful but very frustrating that it was all trial ware. Both Verizon phones and the iPhone sport either pay-as-you-use or one time fees for their music id programs. The Epix does not. Rather, it is
        a monthly ($9.99) paid subscription.

        Overall, the Epix is a strong competitor in the Smart Phone market but it does have some major down-falls.

        Pros: -Optical Mouse -Bright Screen -Strong Speaker -Bluetooth -WiFi (useful for areas with no 3G coverage) -Micro SD Slot (up to 16GB)

        Cons: -Too Much Trial Software -Propitiatory Multi-function connector (no headphone jack) -No Internal Mic Support When Standard Headphones Are Plugged In -No iTunes Support Unlike BlackBerry -Camera is only 2MP (compared to 3+ in competitor phones) -Locks up frequently
