Hands-On: Samsung Infuse 4G
Samsung had its Infuse 4G Android phone for AT&T on hand, but wasn't willing to let anyone touch it. Even so, Phone Scoop was able to develop a few first impressions.

The Infuse 4G is a big phone. The screen is massive, and the calculator effect is no joke. Samsung didn't let us hold the Infuse, but it is ginormous. Every dimension is overly large. Since we weren't able to hold it we can't say with authority how it feels in the hand or how much it weighs.
The screen is impressive. It builds on samsung's Super AMOLED technology with even more brightness and contract. It really looks fantastic. The controls on the left and right sides were about what you'd expect from an Android phone, including microUSB, volume toggle, headset jack, and power/lock key.
As for the user interface, it appears to be Samsung version of Android, similar to what is available on the Galaxy S / Nexus S line of smartphones. The menus looked about the same, as did the basic home screen layout and appearance.
In the few minutes we were able to coax a Samsung employee to interact with it, it appeared to be fluid, fast, and we saw no hiccups with respect to performance.
This will likely be a good Android device for AT&T, but since we couldn't touch it, we'll reserve final judgement until AT&T sends us a review unit.
This phone is huge
I like it.
i hope Samsung didnt ignore the gps!
would it hurt to make the phone feel more structured?
