Weekend Samsung and Android rivalry. The Samsung Infuse 4G and the Samsung Droid Charge.
Verizon and AT&T are expected to continue the rivalry this week with two new Android smartphones that are both manufactured by Korean-based mobile company Samsung. Surprisingly, the specs of both phones are almost exactly the same, except the carrier of course.
Both the Samsung Droid Charge and the Samsung Infuse 4G are currently getting positive and negative reviews, but Droid Charge is obviously getting more lurve from Gizmo reviews.
According to Business Insider, the Samsung Infuse 4G is huge and “videos and the web look gorgeous” courtesy of Super AMOLED Plus, but called AT&T’s 4G speed “pokey” (slang word of slow).
Meanwhile, BGR calls Infuse 4G a “solid device,” but still not the “4G phone you’ve been waiting for.” BGR praised the 8 megapixel rear camera, and the weight of the Infuse 4G calling the phone “shockingly light at about 5 ounces.” BGR also hates AT&T’s 4G speed, and called it “awful.”
Apparently, Verizon’s LTE network helped the Samsung Droid Charge to get a lot of positive reviews. According to Engadget, the battery life of the Droid Charge is impressive, and Verizon’s LTE delivered ”a maximum download of 15.1Mbps down(load) and 3.9Mbps upload.”
Still talking about Samsung Droid Charge, UberGizmo loves the design, and recorded LTE speed of 8.7 Mbps download and 3.4 Mbps upload. Surprisingly, the site is claiming that the battery life of the Droid Charge is fairly shorter than the HTC Thunderbolt.
The Samsung Droid Charge is available today with a tag price of $299.99 and includes 2 year service agreement, while the Samsung Infuse 4G is sporting a tag price of $199.99, and will arrive on May 15th with a two-year contract (no mail-in rebates).
