Samsung I997 Infuse 4G: 4 Giggles?

30 September 2012
  • Summary: Overall opinion: We still can’t figure out the 4G name unless it stands for “4 Giggles.” Other than that, it’s one heck of a 3G mobile phone.

Samsung Infuse 4G

15 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Skeptical of its large size at first, experts are pleased to find that the massive Samsung Infuse 4G with its 4.5-inch touch screen is actually light and rather thin. "As sizable face-on as it is slender from the side," Vincent Nguyen of SlashGear.com describes it. The Infuse 4G sports a giant Super AMOLED Plus screen with better outdoor visibility and higher contrast than previous generations.
  • Pros: Large, colorful screen, Thin and light despite large size, Good camera, Good call quality, Long battery life
  • Cons: Slow 4G data speeds, Outdated processor

Souped Up Super AMOLED

Gear Patrol
1 October 2011
  • Excerpt: About a year ago, the Samsung Galaxy S created a stir on the Android block when it pranced out with its 4-inch Super AMOLED display. While there’s plenty of tech chatter surrounding its successor, the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Samsung Infuse 4G ($200) is essentially the same phone, and it’s coming to AT&T on May 15th. This Android 2.2 device ratchets the Super AMOLED screen madness up to 4.5-inches for great color reproduction and brightness — even in direct sunlight.

Samsung Infuse 4G SGH-I997 (AT&T)

PC Magazine
18 July 2011
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Infuse 4G is one honking Android phone and a good choice for AT&T subscribers, but you'll still need a different carrier if you want real 4G speeds.
  • Pros: Very thin. Huge, vibrant Super AMOLED Plus screen. Stellar battery life. First truly 4G AT&T phone.
  • Cons: AT&T doesn't yet have a network to back up the phone's speeds. Not the best voice phone. Tall and wide dimensions make it tough to hold.

Samsung Infuse 4G Review

16 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Software The Infuse 4G runs Android 2.2 with Samsung’s TouchWiz. I think that they need to expeditiously develop and release an update to 2.3 to enable new features. Samsung does pack some amazing features with their TouchWiz software. Hardware It’s just 8.9mm for most of the device and bulges and the bottom of the device to 9.24mm. This phone must be thin to hide the phone’s overall size, which is considerably large.

The Infuse 4G's gigantic 4.5-inch display may not be for everyone, but can some other standout features give it mass market appeal?

23 May 2011
  • Summary: The Infuse is somewhat of a mixed bag. It’s a gorgeous phone, but it feels a bit cheap in some respects. Its screen is large and the quality of the Super AMOLED Plus display is top notch, but its lower resolution leaves more to be desired. And while it has a “4G” in its moniker, it’s truly not a very fast phone in terms of data speeds.
  • Pros: Beautiful Super AMOLED Plus display, Great camera, Solid battery life
  • Cons: May be a bit too large for some, AT&T “4G” speeds aren’t 4G at all, Low screen resolution

Samsung Infuse 4G for AT&T Review

19 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Last year the Samsung Galaxy S devices were a pretty big deal. These phones all had great Super AMOLED screens that outshined pretty much everything else in terms of contrast and power consumption. While the Samsung Infuse 4G doesn’t include Samsung’s “Galaxy S” branding anywhere, it certainly feels like part of that family. The Infuse 4G is AT&T’s latest and greatest Android smartphone, and the big deal about this one is its huge 4.5″ screen.
  • Pros: + Humungous 4.5″ Super AMOLED Plus display is gorgeous and is visible outdoors

Samsung Infuse 4G Review

19 May 2011
  • Conclusion: At $199.99 the Samsung Infuse 4G is a great phone at a reasonable price. While its large size will turn some off, we generally enjoy having a bit more screen space to type and browse on. The hardware isn’t up to the dual-core standards of some flagship phones, nor does AT&T’s network support 4G speeds that are anywhere near as fast as Verizon, but the Infuse is pretty snappy, and didn’t hiccup on us too often.
  • Pros: Big 4.5-inch screen, Bright screen, Thinnest phone on the market, 16GB of storage
  • Cons: Low screen resolution for its size, Plastic shell, HSPA+ speeds can’t compete with LTE, TouchWiz interface has some quirks, Weak, poorly placed speaker

Samsung Infuse 4G Review

17 May 2011
  • Summary: The Samsung Infuse 4G is to the untrained eye a gigantic screen with a powerful single-core engine under the hood and a big fat camera on the back of a “razor thin” candybar form factor. The Samsung Infuse 4G is currently the the holder of the biggest and brightest display of all Android devices classified as a handset.
  • Pros: Super-sized & beautiful Super AMOLED Plus display, Razor thin construction, Peppy performance
  • Cons: Slow “4G” data speeds, Unable to handle sites with heavy Flash content
