The Samsung Infuse 4G is one super thin & light device, and the latest 4G smartphone offering from AT&T in its increasing Android line up. I won't go to much into details on the specs, since we covered that in our hands-on video. But it does have a gorgeous & large 4.5" ( yes 4.5") Super AMOLED Plus screen. Which creates a very large landscape to navigate and use for you smartphone activities.

As I mentioned earlier the device is super thin at 8.99mm and roughly 109g in weight. Which makes it one of the lightest devices out there. So how does the 4.5" Screen and the rest of the specs fair for the Samsung Infuse 4G, in creating a smartphone that will Attract and keep AT&T customer thrilled with its new offering?

Camera

Verdict: A great Camera that records well at 720p and great video. For stills you have to play a bit with the setting to adjust for pictures but it still takes some good photos. I will be adding more photos in the future


AT&T HSPA+

This really was a disappointment and let down, the feature set of the Samsung Infuse 4G demands a high speed network, for you to download aps and enjoy the benefits of the device. the Samsung Infuse 4G is a 21Mbps device capped at 14.4Mbps by AT&T. From getting my hands on the Infuse 4G in New York City to driving back with it to Boston, MA & finish this review. I have had spotty data coverage on AT&T's 4g HSPA+ network. To make matters worse. The Samsung Infuse 4G does not switch to 3G in bad data signal areas but instead drops to edge. So I did a Speed test, which you will find in the video review and the pictures below show the speed test result of the Samsung Infuse 4G paired against the iPhone 4G which is a 3G smartphone on the AT&T network



Conclusion

The Samsung Infuse 4G is a wonderful piece of hardware, from its super thin design with rounded metallic trimming. To the 8MP camera that provides great video quality to be easily viewed on the 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus screen. its also got great battery life to booth, enough storage space and and an overall feel of quality that Samsung has shown in their line of top tier smartphones.

On the down side, the Samsung Infuse 4G runs on AT&T's 4G HSPA+ network, which at this moment is just not 4G enough (Now we know why T-Mobile Looked like a valuable acquisition). Plus the Samsung Infuse 4G does not switch from 4G to 3G but rather edge, which takes away from using the phone to its full capacity. Also issues arose in setting up the mini USB -- HDMI adapter , the issue might be of the software nature. Fear not, for others have achieved success in using the mini USB to HDMi Adapter.

Besides AT&T's mediocre 4G network; thankfully the Samsung Infuse 4G is still a wonderful product to own. The benefits out way the negatives, with the 4.5" screen large amount of storage and smooth operation of the Infuse 4G. The Infuse 4G definitely pushes the boundaries of how large a smartphone screen can go before it becomes something else.
