Does Infuse suffer from these captivate issues?

    Issue 1: Samsung supposedly "hard codes" the browser to identify as mobile, which annoys me as I prefer the desktop version of sites. You cant change this, at least not effectively, and I believe it even applies to third party browsers. If you change the identify as mobile/desktop flag in Android browser, the browser supposedly becomes unstable, for example. I even downloaded Dolphin HD and some sites still show as mobile. I think this bug applies to ALL browsers.

    Issue 2: A review I recently read stated that all Samsung phones have a bug of bogging down and locking up on flash heavy sites. Have specifically watched for this issue but my browser does crash from time to time.

    Issue 3: Captivate is known to have a "slow" file system, that supposedly may cause lag. Does Infuse have the same file system, or the "good", non laggy one that other phones have?

    Issue 4..GPS troubles, is Infuse's GPS good?

    So, does anybody know if Infuse has these issues?

    I can answer issue 3 and 4 for you. Sadly, the Infuse does have the RFS file system instead of the EXT4 system. But the slowdown isn't as noticeable as the cappy, mostly because of the extra .2 GHz. Second, the Infuse does not have the same GPS problems as the cappy. You can get a lock in 2-4 seconds and keep it.

    unfortunately it also suffers from the browser freezing on flash heavy websites, I tested this today. Reason for me to stick with the inspire.

    Yes but luckily you can choose when to display content, so you can not load any banners or anything and have a smooth experience.

    No worries, in a short (a few weeks) while the Infuse will be getting version 2.3.4 and you will be as fast as the GS2. The Infuse is very similar to the GS2, therefore this update will be very easy to install.

    I certainly hope so... I'm also hoping that we'll get a TouchWiz 4.0 update with all the cool gyroscope tricks, but that's unlikely.
