The Samsung Infuse 4G might scare off potential buyers with its imposing screen, but thanks to the thin size and light weight, it turns out to be fairly easy to live with. - Dan Seifert, MobileBurn

The screen on this multimedia cell phone is large and gorgeous

from Top Ten Reviews (over 2 years ago)

As its name suggests, this multimedia cell phone runs on the 4G network. However, AT&T's 4G network has been slow for a 4G network. The Infuse 4G has a 1.2 GHz processor and runs on Android 2.2. We've reviewed other multimedia phones that have had dual-core processors and run on Android 2.3, so this... More

The Infuse 4G looks by all means like a true flagship but fails to deliver in the performance section

from GSMArena (over 2 years ago)

As it seems the Samsung I997 Infuse 4G has pretty good chance of completing its mission. It will ensure that those who want a new smartphone right now get plenty of bragging rights for a while and will still leave them with the largest Super AMOLED Plus display in the world when it imminently gets outdone... More

It's an all-around solid device that rarely disappoints

from Phone Scoop (over 2 years ago)

The Samsung Infuse's stand-out feature is its gigantic, 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. Almost every other feature can be found on other Android devices. The Infuse's display is certainly impressive, but it makes for a larger-than-life device that may literally be too big for some users. I was... More

A great phone for the media-hungry consumer, but a few issues keep it from being great

from PCWorld (over 2 years ago)

The Samsung Infuse is a great device for media consumption, provided you can get over the text- and image-rendering issues. Reading pixilated text on that otherwise gorgeous 4.5-inch display is just a tad heartbreaking, to say the least. But if you are someone who is likes to watch movies on the go,... More

The Infuse 4G disappoints in some areas, but is still a very good Android smartphone as long as you're OK with the larger design

from Cnet (over 2 years ago)

AT&T has slowly but surely been beefing up its selection of Android phones, and the Samsung Infuse 4G is another good addition to its lineup. There are certainly some aspects of the phone that were disappointing, including the unimpressive 4G data speeds and the lack of some of the latest features... More

The Infuse 4G's mammoth 4.5-inch display has some benefits, but it's held back by AT&T's slow network

from Laptop Magazine (over 2 years ago)

The Samsung Infuse 4G has plenty to offer--a sleek design, a good camera, and a big and vibrant screen. However, even though this device is thin and light for a 4.5-inch smartphone, using it one-handed can feel awkward because of the large footprint. What's more, having extra real estate makes waiting... More

A quality device that deserves a chance as much as any of the better Android phones out there

from InfoSync (over 2 years ago)

Our InfoSync Diagnosis with the Samsung Infuse 4G is a good one. The phone managed to hit several core requirements that solidified it as a worthy device in our book. First off, the phone's massive 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display not only gave us the graphics goods, but it managed to aid in the conservation... More

If you like big screens, look no further

from PC Magazine (over 2 years ago)

Don't believe the hype: the Samsung Infuse 4G may be AT&T's first true 4G cell phone, but AT&T doesn't appear to have the network to back up the Infuse's HSPA+ 21 speeds. The Infuse is the first phone we've tested that packs an extra-large, 4.5-inch touch screen. It's also amazingly thin—thinner... More

A stunning screen that's big and the kind of battery life that could finally put your charge anxiety to rest

from Engadget (over 2 years ago)

The Infuse 4G is another solid offering from Samsung that we think those of you with wide pockets and big hands are going to fall in love with. It doesn't quite reach the blistering processor speeds of the Atrix, doesn't have a fancy composite back, and is completely bereft of laptop pretenses. It does,... More

It may not be the 4G phone you’ve been waiting for, but it’s still worthy of your attention

from BGR (over 2 years ago)

No, it’s not the 4G phone you’ve been waiting for, but it’s still a solid device. I’m shocked that AT&T can get away with calling this a 4G phone, however, because I have yet to see data speeds that push the boundaries of its network. But if AT&T making good on its “4G”... More
