After last month's introduction of the Samsung's Epic 4G, Sprint now has two smartphones that support its growing 4G WiMax network. Though both handsets offer high-end features, luscious displays and the Android operating system, the Epic 4G and HTC Evo 4G aren't identical. The Epic has a nifty physical keyboard, for example, and the Evo has a superior camera and the Froyo (Andorid 2.2) update.

So which 4G phone is better? How do the devices stack up when compared with each other? Is the original handset, the Evo 4G, still the best or can the newcomer slay the big fish in the pond? Read our latest cell phone Prizefight to find out.
