Aaron does a review of the Samsung Infuse 4G, AT&T's third "4G" Android handset and the first one to support sideloading (yay!). Sporting a massive 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, the Infuse is powered by a 1.2 GHz Hummingbird processor and has an 8-megapixel camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, and Android 2.2 with Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. Despite the fact that 4.5-inches borders on tablet territory, it feels similar to the HTC EVO 4G.

It enters the lineup beside the Motorola Atrix 4G and the HTC Inspire 4G, two Android phones that have loyal followers. Is the Infuse 4G better than the rest? We'll find out. Part 1 of 2.

David Dawood Poota
David Dawood Poota At&t sucks. Samsung mobile kinda sucks, it looks cool....thats it. Their screens break easily and bluetooth headsets on galaxy barely work. I have had HTC since the G1, followed by the nexus one and now the mytouch 4g. Battery sucks? samsung isnt better. Next phone? Sensation 4g baby!!

William Smith I think dual core phones are really not ready to come out this year maybe next year they will be really ready instead of just trying to push something out.

Eric Kroh I wish sanding would do away with plastic and go eco plastic or aluminum casing..I cant stand samsung..ugh iPhone like os layout
Joshua Becker
Joshua Becker LOL @Mike
Mike Jackson
Mike Jackson I phone out dated right out the box
Benjamin Padilla
Benjamin Padilla Samsung is ok. HTC is usually better. The biggest thing Google has to work on for Android is battery life. Wouldn't it be nice to go a couple days without having to charge your battery? Maybe battery technology will catch up to the advances of smart phones in the next few years. Maybe there will be a day when we will go a week without charging our phones...
Jerry Perales
Jerry Perales no, because it'll be outdated in 2 weeks when the next android phone comes out!

James Myers
James Myers @d.m ha bro trust me I am sure the girl I got now would make u feel like a homo
Jeramie King
Jeramie King The question was is the Infuse the best Smartphone? Not iphone this and iphone that. The answer is.... It depends on what you want in a device. For me the best phone I have ever used is the Evo Shift. Now you all can say what ever you want about proccessers and stuff but this phone is pretty damn snappy and the battery life in my opinion is amazing. I can go most of the day without recharging during decent use sometimes I can go a full day. One last thing.... iphone blows, unless your someone who wants nothing but a bunch of icons and ease of use. To me it's a very boring phone.
Carlos Roldan
Carlos Roldan No. I think is the captivate and inspired.
Tony Abiama
Tony Abiama Played with it extensively already its a nice phone with nice specs and features, but this still can't tear me away from my Evo
DM Ellington-Gonsalves
DM Ellington-Gonsalves Some of you fanboys talk about your phone like it's a fn girl...it's Just a phone...maybe if you put as much work into girls as you do arguing about phones, you might actually touch a girl....hahaha

Robert Centennial
Robert Centennial its a damn nice phone
Jeremy Stewart
Jeremy Stewart Little too big for my liking but still a very nice phone never the less. AT&T is literally probably one of the most up to date companies in the world to date with probably the best overall coverage to make a simple phone call..... It sucks that so many people give them a bad rap
Cory Wood
Cory Wood Yes
Walt Alan Wilcutts
Walt Alan Wilcutts Used one today. GPS sucked. Hopefully it's just a bug with the one I was using, but they don't have the best track record.

Jonathan Rash why make iphone the best when it doe's not give you what you want and iphone will never be number 1 they always say there number one but it is not true
Mike Lyon
Mike Lyon Consumer reports is biased and always have been. Consumer reports readers, who take the surveys, have always hate AT&T. The infuse is solid but the inspire still take the cake. The atrix is a far distant third.
Jonathan Rash

KoDy Designed ByCrime
KoDy Designed ByCrime NEVER BUYING HTC AGAIN!!! learned my lesson with this thunderbolt. Horrible battery life, horrible screen, horribly low and distorted speaker for music and vids and this is my third HTC device with the same problem. I had the evo then the G2 and now the thunderbolt....I'm done nothing but Samsung from here on out galaxy tab 10.1 and galaxy s 2 will be my next two purchases
