I am a long time Blackberry user (a Palm Treo user before that), so this is my first Android phone. My son has the Samsung Moment, so I was able to play with that, along with reading the forum, to get ready for the Epic. By the way, thanks to everyone who posts here, it was extremely helpful to me in choosing the Epic. Anyway, here are my first impressions: Display: Great. Seems to be brighter than the EVO that I played with in the store. Touch seems to be as responsive or more so than my iPod Touch (3rd gen). Slide out keyboard: This is taking me some time to get used to. The BB keyboard is so much more narrow than the Epic. The keyboard itself (along with the entire phone) is well made though, and the slide mechanics are very tight. GPS, Navigation: You have 2 option for turn by turn navigation on the Epic, Sprint Navigation (based on TeleNav), or Google Maps Navigation (requires an upgrade to latest Google Maps) After upgrading my Google Maps, I got 2 other apps, Navigation and Places. Navigation is the Google turn by turn navigation app, and Places is a quick search app of common services (restaurants, gas stations, etc) close to you. I tested the Google Navigation app on the way home from work, and was very impressed by it, and by the GPS accuracy. I have not done any in-depth GPS testing yet, but for the purposes of Google Nav, the GPS seemed very accurate. Another feature I like is that I can create a Google Navigation shortcut on my home screen that points to a particular destination. On a trip, this would be handy to create a shortcut to my destination, and whenever I wanted to startup the GPS, I could just tap on the shortcut, and Google Navigation will launch and automatically route to the destination. Saves a few clicks. I had used Telenav (the Spring Navigation app) a while back on my Blackberry, and it always seemed slow to login and slow to get started. I have not tested it yet on the Epic. Media: Easy to hook up via USB, and copy media files to SD card. The Gallery app is OK. Not bad, not horrible. Will be looking for a 3rd party app for handling media. One bad thing on the gallery is that I can't seem to figure out how to turn on file names. It only shows thumbnails, which does not work for movies, which just show up as a bunch of black thumbnails. I actually use the My Files apps to browse and launch movies. Using the Gallary for browsing pictures works much better though. If you have pictures in Picasa Web, they show up in automatically in the Gallery app. Not much to say on the music app, just gives you the basics. Camera: Check out any of the many reviews online. I found the camera to work as it does in the reviews. On a side note, I actually found the camera to be a little better than some of the reviews, but this is probably because I am coming from a Blackberry Bold, and it's crappy camera. I am looking forward to having a camera that I will feel comfortable using for pics and short videos. With my blackberry, I always felt I need to take my real camera with me if I really wanted to take decent pictures. I won't have to do that as much now that I have the Epic. PIM: Email, contacts, calendar, etc. This is an area that Blackberry has always excelled in, and this is where I was the most worried. I have only been using it a day, but so far, I am impressed with the PIM apps on the Epic. I will need to use it for a few weeks though before I can really get a feel for how it compares to the Blackberry. My work email is on IBM Lotus Notes, and IBM is coming out with a native app for the Android by the end of the year. Until then, I am using Touchdown, which works with the Lotus Notes server (with the Lotus Notes Traveler feature turned on). The Touchdown app works very well, and I might end up keeping it depending on how well IBM develops their own app. While you android users already know, I like how Android contacts syncs with my work email contacts, gmail contacts, facebook contacts, twitter contacts, etc, and will let you merge/link duplicate contacts. Blackberry did this, but it seems easier to manage on Android. As I get used to my new Epic phone over the next month, I will try and post more of my experiences. At this point though, I am very happy with my Epic, and the Android OS.
