LOL I just headed here to open this thread myself and here it is already!
Well i was sceptical about it until i saw the video. It does look good in hand So I'll definetely check it out at ATT store...
Speaking of battery, What I understand from the articles about SAmoled Plus technology it is actually consuming less power than its predecessor and is brighter and crisper at the same time. I never owned any samsung devices before so I dont know how long the battery lasted on first galaxy S. This is something that I will have to research first... I've been getting a good battery life on Atrix for the past few weeks so can't complain much about it.....
Another thing is that Atrix has NVIDIA Tegra 2 and you all know that some great games are coming for this platform... I'm a gamer so just this very thing may stop me from getting infuse... 4.5 screen might be too big for me in terms of portability but like i said... i gotta see it in person.....
forgot to mention other important things like: does infuse have true HDMI mirroring (not like Atrix)? how much RAM it has? and does it have a gyroscope?? Galaxy S II should have all these specs so it does look like a complete phone and best candidate for next purchase on my list.....

Factual Honesty. Ive owned the Captivate. I loved the Captivates screen and everything else about it. So heres some more Factual Honesty. The Samsung Infuse will go in my pocket, right after the Atrix sells on ebay lol. Plus, The Infuse's 4G is better then the Atrix. Its gonna take a better advantage of the network then the Atrix can.Just swapped out the Xoom Tablet for an IPhone. I never ever thought I would get an IPhone. Im currently eating my words. Apple has a lot going on here....Im loving both platforms.

There's a lot to like about the Infuse, but it's just too large to be convenient, for me.
As far as ATT's network is concerned, I think it's way too early to know how their higher speed technology deployment is gonna turn out. It's certainly chaos, right now!Change is good!

Haha good luck guys really hope you'll enjoy your infuse! I'll wait for gsII for now... of course its all about preferences... i like nice games so for me atrix is the best choice for now i'll have to think twice before selling it and getting gsII also i am not having any serious issues with my phone like some people have... so im just ok with what i have right now...

21mbps? Samsung Infuse 4G is AT&T's first 21Mbps smartphone -- Engadget
Well.... it says here "technically capable" thats the key phrase here... has anyone ever gotten their DL speeds to 14 mbps???? I highly doubt that... so with HSDPA category 14 there is a big chance you wont be even getting speed that category 10 offers at this point... i tthink you all should take a look at this link to get better idea about speeds... 4G speed test results are in, Verizon's LTE is fastest, but T-Mobile holds the fort in smartphone speeds - Phone Arena
I just learned from engadget.com that infuse has a single core processor, not that its a big issue anyway but Atrix just scored a bit here.....

Dual Core and overall more future-proof.
Sure, the Infuse has a bigger and brighter screen, but it also has smaller battery and first impressions so far have shown that the battery tends to get drained quickly due to the larger screen.
Also, the Infuse has low density pixels on a larger screen (read: not gonna look pretty).
Unless you plan to get another new phone within 3 months, go with the Atrix.

going with the captivate vs infuse if the SAMOLED+ consumes less battery than the SAMOLED but is .5" bigger the best we can hope for is equal battery life but the extra 200mhz on the processor will likely make short work of the rest of the battery.
The atrix is the most future proof and is a great phone. However the screens on samsung devices are so good its just.........well lets put it this way if you own an atrix try not to use it right after a samsung device lol. I love both of mine but the samsung has the better screen hands down.
But like someone else said the infuse is nice but with the GS2 around the corner (which has already been spotted with AT&T bands in the FCC) the infuse is likely to get the notorious samsung cold shoulder.
The one thing i hate about some of these manufacturers is once they release a new flagship(evey 3-6 months) its like the previous sometimes becomes the redheaded stepchild locked in the basement. yea you get food but its not always good or on time lol.
thankfully though with all of the new android handsets you really cant go wrong. i would say for most people the infuse will be too large though as most find 4.3 too big. for people like me 6'3 300lbs the infuse is a nice fit lol i will be picking one up when it drops though.Android: Galaxy Note 3, Nexus 5

Great review. I will say that I notice a difference looking at the Atrix, after Ive owned the Captivate. Bigger Screens is always a plus for me. I dont mind that at all. Makes typing and viewing content a lot better. Samsung makes really good quality products. The Atrix is sweet also and I love Motorolas quality. I have the Xoom, and it looks like the Xoom is the Moto Product Im gonna stick with. The device is fantastic. But the Atrix is good, but in my opinion the Infuse is a beast. The Screen alone looking at it in direct sunlight is a big plus since you can actually see it really good. I can probably vouce and say that you wont notice to much of a difference on this phone compared to the Atrix speed wise. Even though the Atrix packs a Dual Core processor, it really doesnt seem to much faster then when I had the Captivate. And I believe that was capped at 1Gz and was a SnapDragon processor. This one is gonna be a 1.2Ghz processor so its gonna be sweet. I dont play games to much on a Phone. I got the Xoom for that and thats where the Tegra 2 shines.
So Im anxious awaiting the Infuse to go up for pre order. Hopefully, if not Im ordering it online since AT&T lets you get the upgrade discount price which is just gonna add 3 more months on the contract since I renewed it again when I got the Atrix.Just swapped out the Xoom Tablet for an IPhone.

Gotta say, I would have to wait to see what happens with the Galaxy S II. If that does hit ATT I think it has to be the top dawg.
Even if it doesnt, might just have to open the secret bank account and hit that baby full price.

I bet ice cream will be a great update, I just don't see Motorola supporting this phone that long. I am sure they will have their next gen android device on at&t at that point.
