Infuse 4G Review

Infuse 4G Review

How big is too big? It's an important question when you're looking at the Samsung Infuse 4G, AT&T's latest HSPA+ smartphone and a device that's as sizable face-on as it is slender from the side. A close relative of the much-loved Galaxy S II, it also uses Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus display technology, only now stretched to a whopping 4.5-inches. More to love, or too much to handle? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up, April 28th 2011

Good news this morning, with Verizon's 4G LTE back online in time for the launch of the DROID Charge. But this is a black eye for Verizon, casting doubt on the reliability of their network, and leaving subscribers to wonder why they had to use a workaround to get 3G. We have a hands-on of the new white iPhone 4 that Chris Davies visited with in London, complete with a video and a comparison to the Samsung Galaxy S II. Also, users that had manually updated their Nook Color found their e-reader bricked after the 1.2 update was installed. No word yet on a fix, just that "engineers are investigating the issue". Also, the Huawei lawsuit, RIM's questionable OS update, the G-Slate, more on the Sony PSN story, plus the Samsung Galaxy S II launch in Korea. Lots more after the cut.

DROID Charge unboxing and hands-on

DROID Charge unboxing and hands-on

It's pretty good timing for Verizon's DROID Charge by Samsung to arrive today, just when our Samsung Galaxy S II review goes live. Both smartphones share a couple of important features, most notably the 4.3-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display. Unlike the previous AMOLED and Super AMOLED technology, the new Super AMOLED Plus allows you to see the display much better out in sunlight thanks to 50-percent more sub-pixels (this means twelve sub-pixels instead of eight). Looking at the display makes us want to weep like a 12-year old boy on Christmas morning. The Droid Charge has LTE to differentiate it, the second 4G smartphone to Verizon's line-up. Read on for our first-impressions.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: April 6th, 2011

Welcome to the SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up with your host, Chris Burns! I think I'll take over the Daily Show someday. It'll be horrible! Before that happens, let's talk about everything that's happened before we woke up here in the West. Let us begin with a big fat review written by yours truly that was actually published last night, but perhaps beyond a lot of people's bedtimes: T-Mobile Nokia C7 Astound - it's the same as the rest of the world, but different. Then hit the advice books with Chris Davies as he admits: "for a gadget reviewer, I'm rubbish at advice."

Samsung’s Galaxy S II Will Have MHL Port for USB and HDMI-out

Samsung’s Galaxy S II Will Have MHL Port for USB and HDMI-out

Good news, Samsung fans. The Galaxy S II will not lack for HDMI. While the new flagship Android smartphone has no HDMI-out, it will be the first smartphone with an MHL port. This port is capable of acting as both a USB port, and HDMI-out. Users will only need a special microUSB-to-HDMI cable in order to connect their phone to their TV or monitor or whatever.
