Pros:

  • FormFunctionFun. 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).
  • Large, beautiful Super AMOLED Plus screen, Excellent battery life, Ample memory and expansion capability.
  • Big 4.5-inch screen, Bright screen, Thinnest phone on the market, 16GB of storage

Cons:

  • Speaker is fine for calls, anemic for movies. Plastic chassis and volume rocker are pure chintz. Getting video onto a TV is donglereliant. All this downloadable video sweetness ships with a tiny 2GB card.
  • Large design not for everyone, HDMI implementation can be troublesome

Overall the Samsung Infuse 4G is really shaping up to be a great follow up to AT&T's Captivate and ranks in at a 'Good' overall rating. It seems Samsung will continue to try to dominate through their Galaxy S moniker, and are trying new...

The Infuse 4G isn’t short on contradictions. Its 4G moniker promises speeds AT&T’s HSPA+ can’t quite deliver, and while we’re used to big-screen phones packing all-round flagship specs, its single-core processor lags behind our...

We wish that the Samsung Infuse 4G had come running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), but that isn’t quite a deal-breaker. 4G performance on the Infuse 4G is also solid, as is general performance, however, this phone is no speed demon compared to many of...

For most tech gadgets, the rule is immutable: big equals heavy. If you get a big cell phone -- a Droid X, for instance, or an HTC Evo -- you're going to know that it's in your pocket. So it was something of a surprise to pick up the new Samsung...

The Samsung Infuse 4G has quickly become the best AT&T has to offer. We were a little dubious when it was first announced, thanks to that 4.5-inch screen size. But in practicality, the thinness of the phone more than makes up for it being a bit...

The Infuse 4G is another solid offering from Samsung that we think those of you with wide pockets and big hands are going to fall in love with. It doesn't quite reach the blistering processor speeds of the Atrix, doesn't have a fancy composite...
