Sprint is offering a second 4G Android Phone with the Epic 4G. Is it better than the HTC Evo 4G?

Sprint will launch the Samsung Epic 4G (Galaxy S series) on August 31st. The Epic 4G will has a price of $249.99 after a $100 rebate. Features of the Epic 4G include 1GHz processor, 4" SUPER AMOLED display, hardware QWERTY keyboard and 4G. Android 2.1 is the launch OS. The camera is a 5MP shooter with auto-focus, power LED flash, a 4x digital zoom lens and 720p video recording.
Engadget has already tested the Epic 4G and published an in-depth review. Their verdict is very positive, but they still see the HTC Evo 4G as the better overall deal.

Quote from the review: "Nothing speaks to us more strongly during the course of a review than finishing it and saying, "alright, I'm ready to buy this thing," and the Epic is on the short list of phones that has managed to do it. More than its Galaxy S siblings, it feels like the Epic has overcome its shortcomings -- notably the forgettable UI skin -- to shine, and it's a phone we could easily imagine using day to day. Only thing is, the EVO is also on that short list for us -- and the better camera, bigger screen, and $50 savings versus the Epic still make it our winner in this 4G shootout, though only by the thinnest of margins."
