Nice, but this is going to get destroyed by the EVO 3d in almost every area.

Just sent this review to my brother who's been thinking about this phone since you guys announced it a while back.. I love my Vibrant and most importantly tmo's hspda+ (when it works) but i'm not sold on at&t's coverage/speed currently.. not happy about this buyout either ;(
I just switched to this phone from the iPhone and the infuse is fantastic. This review it spot on.
A 4.5" screen is way too big for a cell phone. I think even the 4" screen on my Samsung Focus is pushing it. I couldn't imagine going any bigger on something that is supposed to be in your pocket.
Also, vendors need to start putting 2.3 on more stuff!

Thanks for the review, been looking for a new phone in the coming months to switch over to. Kinda got bored of my iPhone so looking to switch to an android. This looks pretty nice. Not sure if its a bit big for me or not, the iphone is perfect size so far.
Kind of reminds me of my Captivate. I hear people are having problems with 2.2 update I am going to stay at 2.1.
Glad to read battery life is better.
In your opinion Dave is the build quality better than the Captivate?
Cant wait to read your review of the Galaxy S 2.
Heya TBird, The Infuse 4G is a styled and built like a lot of phones in Samsung's Galaxy/Captivate line. The build quality is good but the materials are very light-weight. I personally prefer a heavier-built phone but some folks will really like how light the phone is. Get a good protective case and you should be good to go.
Good review. I am really sick of my iPhone 4, because it is so boring. I will either get this or the HTC Inspire.
So yeah samsung makes good phones, but when it pushes the boundaries between phone and tablet...eh. I dont like phones that i have to squeeze into my pocket. Sure it makes for a good experience but at that size...a bit ridiculous.
The only issue I have found with Samsung is they are really slow to push out updates. I got the 2.2 update from HTC for my EVO about 3 months before it was available for my wife's Samsung phone.
I will say this from personal experience. This phone has an exceptionally nice screen on it. I went to Att to check out there service contracts (which for me is the cheapest over anyone but not with unlimited data and call minutes which I don't really need) This phone is quite incredible to look at and the display was hands down better than anything I have seen yet.
On first initialmpression i might think that the screen is a bit too big for me personally but I do think that the bigger screen real estate would be a boon for some users as well as having rather decent photo and vid performance. What I like about the review as well was seeing how acceptable the HD vid was . The screen looks great as well.

I'm a T-Mobile customer and I have an old Blackberry 8900. Its time for an upgrade and I'm at a crossroads whether to choose a HTC Sensation or the Samsung Galaxy II!!! Nowadays its all about how fast the processor is, how gorgeous the display is, .....just like comparing computers!!! Ugghhhhh and the tech keeps changing so fast that the phone becomes outdated so soon.......
I like the design and form factor... However... Those Samsung AMOLED screens really mess with me. White looks blue to me and that was the main reason I didn't get the epic and went with the EVO. I'm really happy with my EVO and look forward to checking out the EVO3D looks like HTC has their finger close to the pulse of society.
I just have to say, I had the Samsung Captivate and switched to the Infuse. I LOVE it! The display is unbelievably awesome! And quite honestly, the size isn't really THAT noticeable once you have had a phone the size of the Captivate anyways. Don't get me wrong, I loved my Captivate, but this Infuse is by far the best phone I have ever had! My husband has the Iphone, and he constantly jokes that I have a mini A-Pad. But he keeps asking, "Hey, let me see your phone for a minute."........I am sure he will be getting one soon! LOL!
