    Honestly after looking at the Evo so much and getting used to playing with it and how much of the phone the screen takes up we just got to Its sexy look so when the Epic came along it was WAY different so people were like UGH ugly, but by now I really do think that it also looks very sexy

    Hmmmm....... I'd have to agree that after lusting for the EVO, the Epic was sort of a disappointment aesthetically. It doesn't stand out to me in any way, so it's just back to the ranks of a typical phone to me. I normally prefer function over form anyway, so it's not a big deal.

    It only bothers me just a little because I thought with the EVO I finally found a phone that had both form and Function but then the Epic came along and I was like oh well.

    Like many reviers have said, the way the glass front looks completely black, so black that you cannot make out the outline of the screen makes it look pretty imposing. In this case imposing = awesome.

    Looks are subjective. That's why.

    By no means is it the best looking phone, but I'd say its far from ugly.
    I think the iPhone looks better, but who wants a phone with breakable glass on BOTH sides?

    IMO I find it cheap looking (actually, I find all slider phones cheap looking not just this one). I don't like form factor, it just reminds me of a slider phone that a teenager would use. Plus I hate how Samsung puts their logo smack between the screen and the capacitive buttons, the less intrusive the better a la the HTC logo on the evo being small and in the top corner. I don't think the phone is ugly perse, just not that attractive.

    Because people have opinions and different tastes. I like the way the Epic looks, but then again i don't really care about what the phone looks like.

    It's not as you say "so black". You can always make out the screen- it's dark blue. Just like in the pics. It's more apparent the blue in person. Y'know, only speaking as a Samsung Vibrant owner with the same screen.

    The Epic looks generic. PLAIN and simple- not in a good way. ;)

    Why does anyone care what other people are saying about the phone's looks? If you like the phone just buy the damn thing. Stop caring so much about what other people think or say.

    In the picture,you can see that Htc screen is a bit white when it is off. Any idea why is that so? Htc uses Samsung's LCD screens,but I don't understand why htc phones's screens are like that.

    Anyway,I prefer Samsung Epic over evo.It is packed with more features. Design don't really matter to me that much too. Epic's design looks okay to me,if not great.

    I think Samsung did that to make sure people don't hit the buttons by accident when theyre trying to hit something on the bottom of the screen.
    Thats a good idea to me.

    But that's the thing, they do it with all their phones not just this one. I don't think hitting the buttons by accident is a problem for anyone. Look at all the other touchscreens, Evo, Nexus, Droid, etc none of them have a logo or anything separating the screen and buttons and I've never heard anyone complain about accidentally hitting the wrong thing.

    Evo owner here since launch day and i think the Epic is very sexy lol
    i need to see the thickness in person though.

    what will cause me to pick one up (alongside my Evo), though, is dev support and how quickly it's updated to 2.2. so i'd say November-ish is when i'll own one, depending on my first impressions of it in store

    I think the Epic is a nice looking phone. I like the curves. It looks like it will be easily pocketable. I also like that the Epic looks less like an Iphone compared to the Vibrant.

    Yeah, thanks for the dose of sanity.
    What's with a couple guys taking offense to someone else's personal opinion? Grow up people, it's not a personal attack and meant to hurt your feelings, jeesh. :eek:
