Samsung Infuse 4G Review

Quick Take
Pros
  • Large 4.5-inch screen is sharp and colorful
  • Touch screen makes menu navigation easy
  • Ultra-thin body measures just 0.35 inch
  • Built-in photo-sharing widgets
Cons
  • Small flash is sometimes inadequate
  • Image quality is not the greatest
  • Performance of shooting modes is mixed
  • Placement of lens and flash makes them easy to block with fingers
Bottom Line
The Infuse 4G is a great fit for someone who wants an ultra-thin camera phone with a vivid, sharp display. Sharing photos is easy with the included apps, and the camera is generally quick to perform, but a weak flash, less-than-stellar image quality and digital-only zoom limit its appeal for serious shooting.

Samsung calls its Infuse 4G the nation's thinnest 4G smart phone, and it is easy to see why. At its thinnest point, the device is waif-thin at just 0.35 inch. The Infuse 4G is unlikely to disappoint in one critical aspect: the screen. The large 4.5-inch screen is bright and displays vivid color, which makes your photos look very attractive.

The Infuse 4G offers a range of instant photo-sharing options and is designed to take self-portraits, outfitted with two cameras: a second, rear-facing camera allows you to see yourself on the screen while framing a shot. The device can also record high-definition video and play it back over HDMI.
