Samsung Infuse 4G Video Review: AT&T Android with 4.5" Display, Real HSPA+
      #40609 - 05/10/11 12:37 AM

Samsung expects the Infuse 4G to be a summer hit, and we think they're right. This is one really lovely phone with a huge 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display, 4G HSPA+ and a 1.2GHz Hummingbird ARM Cortex-A8 CPU. The display isn't easy to describe-- sure you've seen and grown accustomed to Samsung's Super AMOLED display as seen on the Samsung Captivate; it's super colorful and bright. But the Super AMOLED Plus display is even sharper while cranking those colors and brightness to retina-burning bliss. And at 4.5", watching movies is a blast.

The phone runs Froyo Android OS 2.2 with Samsung TouchWiz 3.0. Hold onto your chairs: AT&T has allowed installation of non-Market apps (side loading), and this actually has honest to goodness real 21Mbps HSPA+ 4G with HSUPA uploads. We've been getting 6-8 Mbps downloads and 1 Mpbs uploads according to Ookla's app. Big Blue, color us pleased. We're sure that Amazon, with their separate app store, is pleased too.

This is a large phone, no doubt about it. Though it's still small next to the
Dell Streak 5. And it's absurdly light at 4.9 ounces, so you won't feel like you're carrying a brick in your pocket. It's also extremely thin, unlike its chunky cousin the Droid Charge by Samsung.

The Dell Streak and Samsung Infuse 4G

The Samsung Infuse 4G will be available on May 15 for $199 with a 2 year contract. It has a front 1.3MP video chat camera, rear 8 megapixel camera that takes very nice shots and 720p video, and it has the usual WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. It has an unusual HDMI setup that uses a dongle adapter that plugs directly into a standard HDMI cable (the dongle is included in the box). The phone has 16 gigs of internal storage and AT&T includes a 2 gig microSD card. The 1750 mAh battery provides solid stamina for this big screen beast.
