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.

Infuse 4G 

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

Seriously, this phone is gigantic. If a chart existed called the Evolution of the Galaxy Tab you would have the Samsung Captivate, this phone, and the tab.

I like it.
I started to get realy excited about the size of this phone at first. The Captivate's screen is bigger than the "legendary" iphone at 4". The Evo is even bigger at 4.3". This is even bigger at 4.5"! It sounds amazing, but remember that screens are mea...

i hope Samsung didnt ignore the gps!

since they so proud of their super amold! I don't care how good the phone is, if GPS is garbage they wont get my money!
i just hope that for once they can make a device that doesn't feel cheesy and plastic.

would it hurt to make the phone feel more structured?
