I have used the iPhone for a while and was a little concerned with moving to this Android phone. After using it for the last month I am very pleased with the apps and the performance of the phone. The reason I got this phone is the big screen size. I am a photographer and use this phone to help me preview the photos that I take. I have an eye-fi card in my camera that is paired with this phone. After I take the photo, it is transmitted to the phone. The screen on the phone is large enough to use to preview the shots. Much better that me having to carry a tablet or laptop and works just as well. I liked this since I was carrying a phone anyway and it serves a big purpose for me. The quality of the phone service is great and I have had no problems with it in any way. The only thing I don't really like is directly connected to the thing I really love. Screen size. It is a little cumbersome at times to carry, but that is overlooked because of the usefulness of the screen. LOVE THIS PHONE!

I have had my phone for about 6 months. When I first received it I loved it. As I used it more and more, it's little "faults" started popping up. An example: the more apps you put on the phone, the more things happen, like it freezes. I have had to remove the battery a few times to restart the phone. I do love the size of the screen, the resolution of the screen, and the over-all function of the device though. The battery does not last long if you are using the phone all the time. I am not sure if that is normal for all phones, but the battery will not last all day. You have to charge it at least once during usage time and once overnight. The phone portion works very well, as I have not had anyone complain they can't hear me and I can hear everyone very well. Lastly, this phone is NOT scheduled to get the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade (as of now), so be sure you know that in a few months it probably will be running old software but if you are OK with that, this is a pretty good phone.

This phone is amazing! The large screen has beautiful color and resolution, providing lots of real estate to get your work done...especially when surfing the web. The extremely fast processor allows me to multi-task without slowing down. The camera takes amazing pics. I switched from an iPhone 4 and have no regrets. I like my Infuse so much that my partner is trading his iPhone 4 for one! The power button is easily triggered in your pocket. Buying a case that protrudes slightly higher than the button solved that problem. The large screen devours battery power on the factory setting, consuming 87% more energy than any other component. Initially I was only getting halfway through my day before needing to recharge. Using Power Saving Mode to auto-adjust LCD brightness solved that problem and I can now go all day on one charge. Download speeds when browsing are NO faster than 3G. I'm hoping my speeds will improve as my carrier rolls out more 4G coverage (promised this summer) .

After having lasik surgery, I found that I needed a phone with a larger screen & as luck would have it, this one came out! I purchased it w/i 3 months of its release. I love it! With the exception of my 2nd cell phone, this is the only one that I have never had any problems with. It does just as much, if not more that the Iphone 4! I have had friends (Iphone owners) who have switched to this phone, after showing them the ease of use such as touching the screen and enlarging the size of messages! This is the first phone that I can use anywhere within my home, picks up signals, its never broken up, lost connection. This is my first Samsung phone, and it will not be my last. In my opinion this is one of the best phones on the market! This coming from someone who never leaves comments! Five months ago I decided that I had enuff of my old laptop - and I went out and purchased a Samsung! Again - I couldn't be happier! Like my phone, it does a lot more than I expected!

Flashy phone with Lack of SAMSUNG updates

The phone itself is okay with the features that are available out of the box, however, the primary issues would have to lie with the SAMSUNG development team with their lack of diligence with providing customers with the latest software updates. I would highly recommed a redesign of the current product, or future products for that matter to not feel so cheap. The Infuse 4G honestly feels like a plastic piece of junk, compared to the current competitors. it is all opinionated as far as wants or hopes for the phone, but could really use some improvment. If they provided the latest updates, or had the development team work a little more on providing the customer base that they have with the appropriate updates, i believe that not only would their already unhappy customers would have a change of opinion, they would also be able to expand, and grow their customer base to better numbers, the revenue would also increase from the knowledge that the product purchased from SAMSUNG would be reliable as well as current,
