Samsung Infuse 4G
Pros: Excellent 8 megapixel camera, large, bright touchscreen
Cons: Single-core processor, camera digital zoom could be easier
Bottom Line: Arguably the best screen on a phone – certainly the largest
The first thing you’ll notice about the Samsung Infuse 4G is the big and bright 4.5 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen. If you’re looking for a 4G phone with a large screen – this is the one for you. For comparison, most of the latest 4G phones come with 4.3 inch screens, while the iPhone 4 screen is only 3.5 inches. But even though Samsung have put one of the largest displays on a phone on the Infuse, they’ve also made it one of slimmest smartphones available – making it feel surprisingly light in the hand.
Not only is the screen large it also performs well. The colors are both rich and vibrant thanks to the Super AMOLED screen. Even better, the display does a good job in outdoor light. Movies and video clips play smoothly and sharply. You can even rent movies directly via the Samsung Media Hub app.
Camera quality is another highlight of the Infuse 4G, taking images that are less grainy and noisy – even in low light situations – that pictures taken with other phones. There are also plenty of scene modes to experiment with but it has to be said the digital zoom is a little tricky to access.
