There was a time not so long ago when smartphone meant iPhone literally and indeed iPhone 4 was an embodiment of all things extraordinary. But the world has moved on to bigger things now as many electronic companies have surpassed many of the features boasted by iPhone 4. The latest smartphone from the stable of Samsung is the Infuse 4G. It is loaded with features and despite boasting of all big things, the gadget is surprisingly light and thin. Let us see how it fares in comparison to Apple’s baby, iPhone 4.
Samsung Infuse 4G
Though Infuse runs on Android platform and as such there can be no comparison with iPhone 4 that runs on Apple’s iOS 4, Infuse has features that have the capability to give iPhone 4 a run for its money. As told earlier, it has something big in store for the users. To start with, it has a huge 4.5 inch display on a super AMOLED Plus screen at WVGA resolution (800x480pixels), the same display used in Galaxy S II; the display is bright enough to be easily read under broad daylight and produces superb colors with great blacks. Infuse certainly is the thinnest 4G phone in the market today (8.99mm).
This amazing smartphone is powered by a super fast 1.2 GHz hummingbird processor and has 512 MB RAM. It runs on Android 2.2 Froyo and coupled with Samsung’s legendary TouchWiz UI, browsing the net or playing games provides a smooth and pleasing experience to the users. Infuse comes preloaded with Angry Birds with a special hidden level (Golden Egg) for those who are fond of the game. Those who finish the level can register and stand to win exclusive prizes from Samsung. The gadget is a dual camera device with a rear 8 MP camera with auto focus and LED flash capable of recording HD videos in 720p. It also has a front 1.3 MP camera allowing users to make video calls. There is the standard 3.5mm audio jack at the top and the smartphone has all the standard features like proximity sensor, accelerometer, and gyro sensor.
For connectivity there is Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth, DLNA, and GPS with A-GPS. The browser supports HTML and flash and net surfing is a breeze on the phone. Additional gift for first 500000 buyers is $25 free download of content from Media Hub. It is a great feature that allows instant watching while the file downloads. One can expand internal memory up to 32 GB using micro SD cards.
Apple iPhone 4
For quite some time, iPhone remained a status symbol for the high flying executives. Though it still is a marvel of technology and designing, competition seems to have caught up. When it first arrived in May 2010, iPhone 4 mesmerized smartphone lovers with its sleek looks and a design that is unique with the front and the back made of treated glass and stainless steel edges. The dimensions of the phone, 115.2×58.6×9.3mm evoked oohs and aahs from the public, and for a long time iPhone 4 remained the slimmest smartphone of the world. It weighs just 137g, but since then many phones that are lighter have come up in the market.
The display of iPhone4 is what is most talked about, and it is a fact that Retina display employing LED-backlit IPS TFT produces a brightness that is still far ahead of the competition. Despite having a smaller 3.5 inch screen, it more than compensates with its brightness that produces a resolution of 960×640 pixels.
The smartphone runs on Apple’s iOS 4 and has a super fast 1GHz A4 processor. It has a RAM of 512 MB and is available in two models with 16GB and 32 GB internal storage that is fixed as it does not support micro SD cards. The phone is a dual camera device with the rear being 5MP, auto focus, LED flash, capable of recording HD videos in 720p while the front is a VGA camera for taking self portraits and for making video calls.
The phone has no FM radio and surprisingly there is no support for Adobe Flash 10.1 that is a bit disappointing for millions of lovers of iPhone4.
