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...
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.
Excerpt: This phone was made to be seen. No, really. The Samsung Infuse 4G ‘s huge 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen not only looks great, but practically begs for video playback. Of course, that raises the question: Is that enough to differentiate the Infuse from Android’s numerous oversized offerings ?
Pros: Form+Function+Fun. Oversized touchscreen is great for flicks. Fantastic battery life regardless of use patterns. Preternaturally light at 4.5 ounces. Ships with a voucher for movie rentals. Great photos (8MP) decent video (720p).
Cons: Speaker is fine for calls, anemic for movies. Plastic chassis and volume rocker are pure chintz. Getting video onto a TV is dongle-reliant. All this downloadable video sweetness ships with a tiny 2GB card.
Summary: The Samsung Infuse 4G is a good phone. I really liked the comfort and image-quality of its huge display, and the good battery life. The industrial design is clean, and the phone is even lighter than smaller phones like the iPhone 4.
Excerpt: I don’t blame you for reading the headline of this review and thinking to yourself, not another Samsung Android phone. The company has flooded the market with smartphones that have very similar designs and specs — in other words, they are extremely hard to discern from one another.
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
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.
Pros: + Humungous 4.5″ Super AMOLED Plus display is gorgeous and is visible outdoors
Summary: The 2011 Consumer Electronics Show was a big moment for every cellphone manufacturer, including Samsung. Samsung announced the Samsung Infuse 4G for AT&T. The Infuse 4G was announced as having the largest display and yet the slimmest design. Does the Infuse have what it takes to compete?
