Review: Samsung Infuse 4G

Music

The Infuse uses the same, slightly customized version of the Android Music player application as found on the Droid Charge. It includes the nifty "CD View" for sorting through music and user-adjustable equalizers for shaping the sound.

Oddly, the are no music services on board the Infuse at all. Samsung's Media Hub is present, but only offers movies and television shows; no music. Obviously, options abound in the Android Market, such as the Amazon MP3 Player, Slacker Radio, Pandora, etc.

Music can be played back through attached headphones, or sent via Bluetooth to properly equipped Bluetooth devices. Sound quality of music playback was quite good.

Video

As far as video goes, the Infuse has the stock Android video player application, YouTube application, and AT&T Live TV application on board. The Infuse easily handled video content that I side-loaded, and I found the Infuse great for watching movies thanks to the large screen.

Media Hub

The Infuse 4G also comes with Samsung's Media Hub installed. Think of Media Hub as iTunes or Amazon MP3 Store, and you more or less get the idea. Users can access the Media Hub to download movies and television shows on the Infuse, but not music. The Media Hub offers music to other devices, but not the Infuse, for whatever reason.
