Motorola Atrix 4G VS Samsung Infuse 4G

By: Infocellular
The Motorola Atrix 4G and the Samsung Infuse 4G were announced at CES in January 2011. Once again, both are part of a group of 4G phones slated for bundle sale by AT&T, a North American telco.

Both the Motorola Atrix 4G and the Samsung Infuse 4G are Android 2.2 (Froyo) devices at the time of announcement. The Motorola Atrix 4G uses a 1 GHz dual-core Tegra processor to drive a 4-inch screen displaying the Motoblur modification of Android 2.2. The Samsung Infuse 4G uses a 1.2 GHz Hummingbird processor. This processor drives a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen. This is currently the largest smartphone screen on the market and it displays Samsung’s own TouchWiz modification of Android 2.2.

The Samsung Infuse 4G has a 480 x 800-pixel screen displaying 16M colours, whilst the Motorola Atrix 4G has a 540 x 960 pixel screen displaying 16M colours.

The camera is where the Samsung Infuse 4G stands out with an 8-megapixel camera just like the HTC Inspire 4G. The Motorola Atrix 4G has a 5-megapixel camera

The buying decision appears to come down to the camera, and the Samsung Infuse 4G has the better 8-megapixel camera. The Samsung Infuse 4G also has a better processor on paper, and we guess that given the same OS version, the Samsung Infuse 4G will likely equal or outperform the Motorola Atrix 4G.

Much about the Samsung Infuse 4G is still unknown. One thing is therefore certain; they certainly have a pretty bad PR operation. The other products announced at CES 2011 are already meticulously detailed and the lack of information on the Samsung Infuse 4G suggests uncertainty, incompetence or both.



  1. Atrix wins. IT may not be a 4.3 inch screen, but to me 4.0 is the perfect size. The 4.3 is a little to big for pocketability, and the 4.5 will be even better. The atrix has the the best resolution to, coming very close to the iphone. It also has a dual core processor that will handle the software much smoother. also, it not only has 1 gb of ram, but 1gb of DDR2 ram which is much faster than any of the other's flash ram. the camera may be a 5 megapixel, but like others have noticed, the megapixel doesn't always determine which phone is better. The samsung only has a 5 megapixel camera, but performs better and brings truer colors than most others so we will have to wait on that. There is a reason that Motorola atrix released all of these stats prior to it's release. That's because they are proud of what they made and know that it will take the place as the best smartphone on the market
