When there’s a new king of the cell phone performance hill, everyone want to know how other cell phones compare. Two of the highest performing phones for Sprint are the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch and the Motorola Photon 4G, and cell phone fans reasonably want to know how these two stack up against each other. And what better way to compare them than with a Wirefly cell phone Schmackdown?

There are both many differences and many similarities between the Photon 4G and the Epic 4G Touch, so this is no lopsided battle. Click on the video window to the right to see Wirefly’s Bob Kovacs push these two powerhouses into the center of the Schmackdown ring.

    If you could combine the Photon’s superior radios (voice and data reception, lack of signal loss/dropped calls), it’s better sound quality/volume of both earpiece and speakerphone, and it’s (vastly) superior GPS with the Epic 4G Touch’s superior Super Amoled display, faster processor speed, and (vastly) superior camera, then you would have the best phone at the moment for Sprint, in my opinion.

    I bought the Photon when it was first released, then I sold it and bought an Epic 4G Touch that I ended up using for a month before returning to the Photon. The Photon is once again my daily-use phone based on overall reliability. Both phones have their advantages, but for me, after testing each of them all around Las Vegas, the most critical advantages (as listed above) belong to the Photon.

    Now, if Sprint should happen to release a Motorola with the same hardware as the Razr Maxx in the future, I would buy it; in my opinion the Maxx appears to overcome (or at least match) the three (less critical) advantages that the Epic 4G Touch holds on the Photon: camera, display, processor.

    All of the other (more critical) features, in my opinion, are superior in the Photon and in Motorola phones in general, when you compare them to Samsung phones…

    But like they say, individual results may vary!

    PS–The unlocked bootloader on the E4GT (and most Samsungs) is a great advantage that I failed to mention above; Motorola better start unlocking all of their bootloaders from now on (as they “promised” recently) or they will certainly fall behind on the development side…
