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?
Excerpt: Earlier this week, we did a basic unboxing of the Samsung Infuse 4G. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of using this phone for a couple of days, and I must say… it’s nice. The 4.5″ Super AMOLED Plus screen delivers an awesome viewing experience, along with a ridiculous viewing angle.
Excerpt: Aaron takes an in-depth look at the Samsung Infuse 4G , AT&T's third "4G" Android phone and the first one to support third party applications. Sporting a massive 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, the Infuse 4G is powered by a 1.2 GHz Hummingbird processor and has an 8-megapixel camera with 720p...
Excerpt: Aaron does a review of the Samsung Infuse 4G , AT&T's third "4G" Android handset and the first one to support sideloading (yay!). Sporting a massive 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, the Infuse is powered by a 1.2 GHz Hummingbird processor and has an 8-megapixel camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing...
Excerpt: The Samsung Infuse 4G, with a radio capable of achieving peak rates of 21Mbps, is being marketed as the fastest smartphone currently available from AT&T. It’s the big brother to the Samsung Captivate, and fits just between that device and Samsung’s Galaxy S II when it comes to hardware specs.
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.
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.
Summary: The Samsung Infuse 4G has plenty to offer--a sleek design, a good camera, and a big and vibrant screen. However, even though this device is thin and light for a 4.5-inch smartphone, using it one-handed can feel awkward because of the large footprint.
Conclusion: After being encompassed with jubilation upon first handling the device, it eventually subsided as we began to really figure out the ins and outs of its offerings. Yeah, its $200 on-contract price is more than fitting, and equally contends with its rivals in this area, but there’s just this nagging...
Pros: Super-sized & beautiful Super AMOLED Plus display, Razor thin construction, Peppy performance
