    Samsung Infuse 4G Phone Review | PCWorld

    Slightly concerned since this is the phone I want to get. I am hoping most of the issues is due to a crappy phone he received for review. If not I hope some sort of fix is in the works.

    Inmho. Thats the nature of beast with the big screen and its low res.im getting this and i will use my eyes to see if its jagged fuzzy..remember you have 30days..but yeah from that review it is not looking sharp.also its looking like xda wants nothing to with this. .Maybe after its released???

    This is my only real concern with this phone. The outstanding dev support is the reason I've held on to my HD2 for this long. If we're stuck waiting for AT&T/Samsung OS updates, I will have a hard time keeping the phone. I'm still planning on getting one at release though and keeping my eye on the SG2 announcement.

    That is a huge concern of mine too. Usually XDA has a spot for phones before release just for general talk, but they show nothing as of yet. I fear most of the devs are waiting for the GS2 and discounting this phone entirely. Coming from the Atrix, which has a large fan base I am a bit scared to trade in for this; but I really want that screen.

    I'm not concerned. Something as easy to notice as a pixelated display, will be easy to notice on the stores demo. I've read loads of reports saying the screen is brilliant & clear. We'll know soon.

    As far as software updates that's AT&T, not Samsung I can assure you. I believe this phone will be a good one. I'm excited about the large display.

    I just can't wait to try some gaming on it. My iPhone screen it just too tiny for my large hands. From what I read screen is amazing. Also everyone else is report it has touchwiz 3.0 not 4.0

    I am really excited about the screen too. Lately I watch all my new and you tube junk on my phone { Moto Atrix.} The Streak was just too big and the Atrix too small, but I think GoldieInfuse will be just right. It's unanimous that the screen size and quality are superior to most out there right now. So what no dual core, tegra, nfc, touch wiz 4.0. I keep checking back at XDA and posting for a dedicated forum though. We need to keep on that.

    The screen looks excellent to me, but I am not an expert.

    Thanks to all for the feedback on the display. Sounds like it's just fine.

    What's important to remember when reading a review is they have to complain about something. Also it's only one persons opinion and often it's simply the easiest thing to pick on.

    That's why I'd rather hear it from owners :)

    It's an ARM Cortex A8 1.2GHz Hummingbird

    What I really like about this CPU is it provides much longer battery life since it's an overclocked 1.0GHz version. Being single core you give up a little speed, but very little.

    I'd much rather have it this way than dual core which sucks battery life and runs hotter. You've got to remember, the reviewers have to talk about the latest, but that's not always the best even when they say so. Every phone is a compromise of components. Plus there is no perfect phone or we'd really be bored... Ha...Ha...

    I just got my unlocked SGS II, it's a really great phone... just incredible. But it has a tiny 4.3" display, :) for me the larger 4.5" that's on the Infuse is the perfect size.

    This is one of the best phones yet if you like a big screen. Its my next purchase and a real keeper.

    Cheers :)
