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.
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. All those qualities are big advantages for most Android users in search for a comfortably big display. On the downside, I think that, at times, the responsiveness of the phone did get to me.
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
Cons: - 4.5″ screen is difficult to use one-handed
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
Excerpt: 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...
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
Conclusion: There's a lot to like in Samsung's summer blockbuster for AT&T. The Infuse 4G is like having a mobile cinema in your pocket, and despite the huge 4.5" display, the phone is incredibly light and slimly pocketable. Indeed, nothing quite compares to the Super AMOLED Plus display (except the slightly smaller 4.3" Droid Charge's Super AMOLED Plus display). Colors jump out at you, blacks are deep and brightness levels and evenness are superb.
Pros: Class-leading and immense display, slim and light, good HSPA+ speeds where available., Pro: Huge and glorious 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display. Fast, slim and lightweight. 4G speeds are actually pretty good. Attractive phone. Plenty of internal storage. Very good camera.
Cons: Reception is average., Con: Reception isn't among the best, voice can sometimes sound a bit underwater.
