Samsung I997 Infuse 4G Malaysia Review
If you’re looking for a 4G smartphone, then Samsung I997 Infuse 4G is a good Android option. It looks sleek and has a number of powerful features to match.
Samsung I997 Infuse 4G: Display
The 4.5 inch screen is bigger than many of the other top smartphones, which means more space for typing, reading your emails or using your apps. The downside, of course, is that it does look and feel bigger. The resolution is slightly low for a screen of this size, but the benefits more than make up for any drawbacks. The Super AMOLED Plus technology also means that this screen is easier to read in a variety of lighting conditions. The screen is larger but only has a resolution of 800 x 480. This effectively means that some images can look “stretched” across the screen and may look a little pixelated.
Samsung I997 Infuse 4G: Processor
Although this isn’t a dual core processor, it matches and even beats most of the top selling smartphones on the market thanks to its 1.2 Ghz processor. It works very well – web pages load quickly, apps run smoothly, and you can multitask to your heart’s content.
Samsung I997 Infuse 4G: Battery
One major problem with many of the 4G smartphones on the market is that they run out of battery very fast. Thankfully this isn’t a problem with the Samsung Infuse 4G. The advertised battery life is up to 8 hours talk time and up to 400 hours on standby, which will take most people through the working day.
Samsung I997 Infuse 4G: Size
Although the large screen does mean that the Samsung I997 Infuse 4G is bigger than other phones on the market, it is one of the thinnest phones you can buy. There’s something about a thin phone for looking sleek and modern!
Samsung I997 Infuse 4G: Camera & Video
The camera on the Infuse is one of the best quality you can buy in a smartphone, at 8 megapixels. With a camera this detailed, you can certainly use it as a digital camera (if you don’t own a separate device). Taking great shots is easier thanks to extra features such as blink detection, a range of photo effects, and anti-shake tools. You can also record 720p HD quality videos.
Samsung I997 Infuse 4G: UI
Not all users are happy with Android skins, installed by the phone manufacturer. However, these interfaces can add a number of useful features too. Most notably, the Touch Wiz helps to present the Android operating system in a more user-friendly way, and adds extra functions such as the ability to view all your various home screens (you can have up to seven of them) as thumbnails, making information easy to access.
Samsung I997 Infuse 4G: Storage
Out of the box, you’ll get 16GB storage space with the Samsung Infuse 4G. This is very good in the world of smartphones, made even better from the fact that you can expand it up to 32GB using the included memory card slot. This will be more than enough space for music and movies, and will suit most users. It’s one of the biggest storage options available in a smartphone today.
Samsung I997 Infuse 4G: Call Quality
Although the quality of phone calls is generally good, there have been a few complaints made by users of the Samsung Infuse 4G. For one, the volume means that it isn’t always easy to hear what the other personal is saying. This issue is especially noticeable on the speakerphone setting.
Overall, the Samsung I997 Infuse 4G is a satisfying Android smartphone. If you like big screens, look no further. The Apple iPhone 4 lacks the Infuse 4G's larger screen and free voice navigation, but it has a smoother, more reliable OS, and the world's best third-party app selection.
