"Pretty impressed!!"on by skarfy
Pros The phone feels much smaller than it is, due to thinness and weight
Haven't noticed any latency at all yet
Rear texture is very nice
Cons With screen protector, touch screen a little finnicky
Wish volume and power switch weren't on the same latitude
Summary I'm really impressed. This is my first Android device; have iPad2, had iPhone 4, have blackberry bold. I was initially worried that this would be too big, but it is thin and wonderfully light. Goes into front pocket easily, (barely notice it in a rear pocket). The screen is great - rented some movies from media hub, and the definition blows me away. The only negative for me thus far is the touch screen is not 100% responsive, but I think it is due to the screen protector (so that may come off shortly). Love the textured back. Compared to my iPhone (and certainly my BB), there is no noticeable latency in switching between apps and screens.UPDATE;
Of course, it hasn't been 24 hours yet, so I'll update later.

Have had my Infuse 2 weeks now. I really like Android after my iPhone...definitely a better experience for me.
I have had instances where the Infuse hangs - but I'm going to blame this on several apps open, as well as Google's Music beta...had to hard restart a few. There is one disappointing attribute that is happening though - I don't get as strong as signal as with my ATT blackberry, (infuse gets maybe 1-2 bars, and bb gets 4-5). Also, takes a good 5 minutes for Infuse to recognize corporate hotspot...I can watch the wifi scanning and it takes a long time to find it. Same as with other hotspots. Not good. I also have found the bluetooth conx to my car is not 100% (sometimes it connects, sometimes not). Again, compared to my ATT BB, there is no comparison. BB connects 100% of time to known hotspots, and bluetooth. The Infuse is showing some inconsistency here. Gonna keep my eye on it, but if it gets worse, could be a dealbreaker before the 30 days is up
Pros Screen is great, camera is awesome. Internet is fast. Never crashes.
Best of all, it is the second best phone in the market, radiation-wise. If your brain is a factor, see http://reviews.cnet.com/2719-6602_7-291-1.html.
Cons Can't redial with a single command. Not cool.
Speaker is mediocre (with earphones the music is great).
Cant synchronize with Outlook (but neither can the Iphones or androids).
Summary I've had this phone since the middle of July, 2011. Can't complain. In fact I love it.
Sure it drains the battery, just as any other android or IPhone does, but it probably takes more time to do so. And I use the brightest setting. You will need a charger at home and in the office, just as my children do with their Evo, MyTouch, and IPhone. And I don't use a car charger.
Can't undertand the complaints about crashes. This phone has yet to crash. Once, and I never figured out why, I found it dead in the morning. Had to take out the battery and re insert it. That was three months ago and it hasn't happenned again.
To the traveling guy who stated reception was poor, you sure got a lemon, because reception of my phone is as good or BETTER than the Iphone's.
Having said all that:
Tadaaaaaa: Beware. I just toyed with my friends new Windows smartphone (Windows 7.5, I think) and it beats androids and iphones hands down. No kidding. Go to your neighborhood ATT store and see the Samsung Focus S (not focus flash, nor previous focus phones but the lastest Focus S). It will blow you out of your socks.
I have not seen the HTC Titan, but go see it too. It is a HUGE windows smartphone.
Pros Screen resolution is phenomenal ! Clear, bright, easy to read. While it may be big, it is very lightweight and slim. Can't beat the speed of the 4G network, browser pages refresh quickly, streaming video blazes and both down and up loads are fast.
Cons Battery can drain fairly quickly if the brightness is set too high. Luckily with the AMOLED screen, a low setting is usually plenty. Other than that, no beefs from me.
Summary If you are like me and just can't justify the cost of an Iphone, you will be more than happy with the Samsung Infuse.
Pros SCREEN IS AWESOME Don't know where the pixelated idea is coming from. Mines not pixelated at all. Battery lasts even with 4g, bluetooth and gps antennas on. Network is finally getting faster. I have enough real estate for my fingers. Don't get a he
Cons Needs better bluetooth headset voice dial app. Takes a little longer to get used to touchwiz. Wish it had a kickstand.
Summary Gingerbread is coming for this phone. Been getting 3-12 mbps lately on the hspa+. I Don't know why reviewers are bombing on this phone it's the first android I've had that I can use all day thats not like carrying a brick around. It's an android! you can put the software you want on it. Would like to get bigger battery to add a little weight to the phone. Android market bluetooth apps are very lacking (need some pros to dev some better apps ) i.e. headset sound and mic routing.On the pros I meant to say that I don't get a headache as fast when using it. Due to the size and clarity of the screen.

Great XDA Support
Cons Battery (its okay)
Not Dual Core (fast anyway)
Summary This is a great phone for a great price. With CM7 this is faster than a brand new galaxy s2. Superb phone, never disappoints me.
