Review: Samsung Infuse 4G

Camera

The Infuse uses the exact same camera software as found on the Droid Charge, and that's a good thing. The viewfinder window is busy with controls running down either side. On the left, users can switch to the front camera, select shooting mode (single, panorama, beauty, cartoon etc.), set the flash, the exposure, or dive into a fuller settings menu. On the right, you can access the camcorder and the gallery.

The main camera settings menu is extensive and lets advanced users adjust nearly every facet of the camera and picture-taking experience. Exposure, scene/setting, metering, ISO, and more can all be tweaked.

The Infuse has touch-to-focus, and will lock onto anything you want in the viewfinder. Focusing takes about a second, and then the image is captured immediately.

My one complaint? No physical camera button.

The camcorder software behaves in exactly the same manner as the camera.

Gallery

The Infuse makes use of the stock Android 2.2 photo gallery. Images are stored in floating stacks based on date. The view of the gallery can also be switched to a more linear timeline view. Once you dive into the gallery or photo you want, you'll find more of the same stock Android performance.

The Infuse is yet another advanced Android phone to have absolutely no editing powers. You can't do *anything* with photos once you've taken them except send them along.
