Android Gingerbread Operating System
The Epic 4G Touch runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming email and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
A new onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The Epic 4G Touch also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day, including Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps with Navigation, Google Calendar, Picasa, and YouTube. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

I wanted the durability and flexibility (memory wise) of an andriod, but wanted the system of an apple. Fortunately, I have a tech savvy brother, who was able to jailbreak it for me, so I had the best of both worlds. But's it's glitchy. I'm unable to connect it to my computer and get my pictures off. I had to download a separate app, to be able to download my content onto my computer. And it say's that it's running out of memory, despite the fact that I bought a 30g micro SD card, and total, had 42g of space. I'm going to have my brother look at it again, and prehaps re-jail break it.
Oh. And the cord and wall brick it came with were complete trash. Didn't even fit correctly into the charging outlet. Fortunately the charger for my last phone works for it. :P
All in all, I probably got more then what I paid for, and since I've learned how to work around my glitches, it's fine. But honestly, sometimes I fantasize about flawless phone. :P
