Samsung Infuse 4G or?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm due for an upgrade (AT&T), and plan on getting an Android phone next week:

Thus far I'm pretty decided on the Infuse 4G, but know there a few other good contenders, namely the Motorola Atrix.
Also realize the Infuse isn't dual-core, but the screen size is very appealing to me (and the battery life is supposed to be good too).

Pretty much watched all the videos and read all the reviews I can stand, so I'm passing this by you OCN

TIA!

I like the infuse as well but i am holding out for the samsung galaxy s2. It's coming to all the major providers and looks to be a great phone from everything I am reading. I keep hearing June for US release. I can wait a month for a better phone.

i'm pass due for something good. currently rocking an iphone 3g.........

Well at 4.3", the amoled screen, and the dualie...that's mighty darn tempting to wait for here
Anyone know how the battery life stacks up to the Infuse (didn't see any comparisons in reviews etc)?

Also yea "June" seems to be the best I can find on the Galaxy S II...would really love to know exactly when :/
Is it even going to be called that or renamed/designed like with the 1st?

No one knows. We do know that all of the Galaxy SII will have a quadband HSPA chipset that supports AT&T 3G/4G bands though

I don't think you'll regret it. It has the same kind of screen but larger. And I had an inspire for a couple days. 4.3" to 4.5" is a noticeable difference. 2@1ghz is faster than a single at 1.2ghz, but im sure the battery life wont be as good. And personally, I lie the design of the infuse better. The infuse looks sleeker without a button in the front and the camera doesn't stick out at all on the back. If they don't update the sg2 for the US release, the infuse will remain the better phone, aesthetically speaking. To me, that matters more than a dualcore. Its just a phone. If I want more cores, ill go home and hop on my computer.

Infuse because the screen is amazing. I think its a little bit bigger than my Virbrant 4.5>4.3. honestly you don't need a dual core on a smart phone, at 1ghz my Vibrant feels faster than even the iphone 4 in apps and web browsing. If you want a dual core get the Samsung Galaxy 2.

Get the Samsung Hercules on t-mobile. It has the right radio to work on ATT.

Also 4. 5 inch screen....

I'm on a AT&T family plan (saves me a few bucks), so can't jump ship.
Looks like I'm either going to get the Infuse or play the waiting game on the Galaxy S II...
