Epic 4g Cell Phone Review: A Consumer Letter to Samsung about the Epic 4g Cell Phone Reviews

Dear President, I having been a Treo Palm user and now a Epic 4g user have found some large holes in the software of my Samsung Android cell phone.

1) There needs to be a Default Alarm Setting for the reminder of the Calendar. Right now, a user has to go in and choose an alarm reminder each and every time a new event is created. Very inefficient. So much easier to have default setting for an hour, 20 minutes or whatever I choose.

1a) Have a reminder setting so the alarm reminder can be set to go off, once, twice, three or 4 times with intervals of 5 minutes. See Palm Treo.

2) The Calendar needs a Customizable Repeat option. It needs the option to create a Repeat event every 2 days or every 3 days or the option to pick Tues and Wed every week.

See a Blackberry or Treo for this great feature. Right now, If I have an event that needs to happen on Mon, Wed and Fri I have to create 3 individual events and can only pick one day in the week to repeat. Very inefficient again.

3) I work from home, so the phone sits on the desk all day. I want to be able to press the volume button or on/off button to stop the reminder sound. Right now, a user has to go all the way to the reminder itself to shut the sound off. Disruptive at meetings.

4) No auto capitalize on messaging. I have to correct each “im” into “I’m”. The phone misses “youre” to be “you’re”. Time consuming extra steps you make the user do unnecessarily.

And entering a location on a calendar event. It starts with the virtual keyboard on letters as the default.

More addresses start with a number, please update the default to start on numbers/symbols keyboard.

5)The ability to hang up only one call when 2 lines are active. This may be with all cell phones.

6)Longer notification sounds. Yes, I can go to the Android Market. For a new user, have a few standard ones that are longer than 0.5 seconds long. Maybe 15-24 seconds long.

If you need consumer testers on your products, I will help you create superior products. There are a lot of holes in the Samsung Epic 4g cell phone Android product. I will be buying another phone soon unless upgrades are made.

Have I shared how much Windows 7 fails badly?

This is one of those days when I’m running my internet marketing business and things are going good. My assistant is rocking on the seo marketing reports. I’m dealing with video from the comedy show I did at the Improv(decent).


I apologize as this a general rant. Windows XP was such a superior PC product. You could customize more options and they were much easier to find. Rather than make the operating system that people loved work better, Microsoft decided to create a whole new OS with brand new problems.

My biggest complaint is that this 64bit system is supposed to be so much faster. I find that it runs the same or slower than the XP operating system I had before.

So sad are the days…
