Review: Samsung Infuse 4G
The Infuse actually has fewer applications on board than many other Android phones I've tested of late. Notable stand-outs include Angry Birds, AT&T Code Scanner, Mini Diary, and AllShare, a DLNA substitute that lets you send media content from one Wi-Fi device to another. AT&T still managed to stick a few apps on the Infuse 4G that can't be removed. (I'm looking at you, Yellow Pages.)
The Infuse is one of the few devices that supports Bluetooth 3.0+HS. Bluetooth 3.0+HS makes for faster wireless data transfers by handing off the actual transfer to Wi-Fi. In my tests, I was able to pass complete MP3 albums wirelessly between compatible devices in under a minute. Of course, the Infuse also supports mono/stereo Bluetooth headsets. Pairing and connecting was no problem, and sound quality through both was acceptable.
The Infuse's lock screen has a large digital clock at the bottom, but I wish the font were thicker or bolder. It can be a bit difficult to see at times. There is also a clock application if you're interested in using a stopwatch, timer, setting alarms, etc. This app doesn't have any effect on the lock screen clock, though.

As with the Droid Charge, there are plenty of Google location services on board the Infuse. It has Google Maps, Latitude, Navigation, and Places, in addition to AT&T Family Map and AT&T Navigator. Google's mapping and navigation services continue to perform very well, and the Infuse's GPS radio was consistently able to locate me in under 10 seconds. Accuracy was never better than within about 25 feet, though. AT&T's Navigation software is also good, but costs $10 per month to use. The AT&T Family Map is for paranoid parents who want to keep a dime on their kids' whereabouts at all times. It also requires a monthly fee per line spied upon.
