Samsung Infuse 4G
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Samsung Infuse 4g: Tough Battle of Samsung Smartphones

Samsung's Infuse 4G smartphone is the company's thinnest, measuring as it does only 8.9mm; meaning it will fit very easily into a pocket or a purse. It is powered by a high-speed 1.2GHz processor, runs the TouchWiz v3.0 User Interface (UI) and has a number of handy features.

The Galaxy S3 will be released in UK markets on 30 May but it is already the talk of retail town, with both Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse declaring it best-sellers; in fact, Vodafone has confirmed it is their most pre-ordered Android device.

It runs the TouchWiz 4.0 UI which offers visual improvements and gesture-based functionality like panning, turn-over, tilt and double tap.

In comparison, the Infuse 4G has a 4.5in Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 800x480 pixels at 207 ppi. It comes with the earlier version of Corning Gorilla Glass that defends the screen from scratches and damages and TouchWiz 3.0 UI.
