Samsung Infuse 4G review
30 January 2012
Summary: 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. However, the Infuse could easily be picked out of a police lineup of Samsung’s family of phones.
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 Phone’s Mammoth Screen Is Made for Multimedia
23 June 2011
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 ? For the most part, yes. Samsung has packed this lithe handset with pretty much everything necessary for delivering entertainment on the go.
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 $25 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.
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...
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.
