The Samsung Infuse 4G feels a bit like a phone with an identity crisis. It costs the same as the Epic 4G Touch, but is excluded from the Galaxy line. It's got a 4G right in the name, but it doesn't boast 4G speeds. And at 4.5" it's also...

The Infuse is a really fantastic device. We were impressed with everything about it, save for the lousy HSPA+ speeds – but we were expecting that. The display is simply awesome, the design is great, TouchWiz is pretty nice as far as Android UIs...

A list of people who might need a phone that sprawls as far and wide as the Infuse: Godzilla, Shaq, the Nathan's hot dog contest winner who isn't the Japanese guy, people who'd giggle every time they say, "My phone is bigger than yours." WHY...

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...
