The Samsung Infuse 4G is somewhat of a successor to the Samsung Galaxy S variant for AT&T, the Samsung Captivate. The Samsung Infuse 4G is definitely a competitive smartphone to keep an eye out for in 2011.
At first glance the Samsung Infuse may not even register as a smartphone with a large screen. The phone itself looks as large as a Motorola Droid X but the Samsung Infuse 4G has a bigger display. The other surprisingly great design of the Samsung Infuse 4G is its thinness. The Samsung Infuse 4G is one of the slimmest Android powered smartphones to be released on AT&T.
The 1.2 GHz processor also allows the Samsung Infuse 4G to run Android 2.2 smoothly and allows it support Adobe Flash. In the U.S. market, the Samsung Galaxy S variants still haven't gotten their OTA update for Android 2.2, leaving many customer disappointed and distrusting of Samsung's smartphones. The Samsung Infuse 4G may suffer the same fate when it comes to upgrading to Android 2.3.
The Samsung Infuse 4G has the familiar Android interface mixed in with a bit of Samsung flare. Similar to the Samsung Captivate, the Samsung Infuse 4G will feature Samsung's proprietary overlay, TouchWiz UI. This is a good and bad feature to add into the Android powered Samsung Infuse 4G. The bad is that it prevents the Samsung Infuse 4G from receiving immediate Android updates.
Beyond the inconvenience of the Samsung Infuse 4G possibly not receiving the latest version of Android, it's a smooth ride. The biggest feature is that the Samsung Infuse 4G, like the name suggests, will use AT&T's "4G" network.
