Cell Phone Comparisons
Motorola Atrix 4G vs. Samsung Infuse 4G

Wirefly Learn » Resources » Cell Phone Comparisons

January 11th, 2011


This year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) saw the debut of several innovative wireless products, including the Motorola Atrix 4G. Running on AT&T’s speedy HSPA+ network, the Atrix 4G has a unique docking keyboard that turns the Atrix 4G from a cell phone into a compact computer. Meanwhile, the Samsung Infuse 4G features a largest-in-class 4.5-inch Super-AMOLED Plus display and a 1.2 GHz processor. Like the Atrix 4G, the Samsung Infuse 4G will work with AT&T’s HSPA+ network. How do these two yet-to-be-delivered cell phones compare?

Key Differences

  • Display: The Motorola Atrix 4G has a 4.0-inch LCD display, but the big news is that it docks with an expansion module that has a keyboard and 11.3-inch monitor. The Samsung Infuse 4G will have a 4.5-inch Super-AMOKED Plus screen that will be the largest on any cell phone in the U.S. The reported resolution of the Samsung Infuse’s display (480 x 800) is outclassed by the smaller but sharper (540 x 960-pixel) screen on the Motorola Atrix 4G. With much about the Samsung Infuse 4G still not known as this is written, it’s likely that the specification for the phone’s display will change before it comes to market.
  • Operating system: Both the Motorola Atrix 4G and the Samsung Infuse 4G will run Android 2.2. Motorola promises an upgrade to Android 2.3 for the Atrix 4G by the end of 2011. There is no word yet on a possible upgrade to Android 2.3 for the Samsung Infuse 4G.
  • Processor and RAM: The Motorola Atrix 4G features a dual-core 1GHz processor, and will be among the first cell phones to run with a dual-core processor. The Samsung Infuse 4G’s single-core processor will run at 1.2 GHz, an increase from the 1GHz processors that are widely available today. The Atrix 4G will have 1GB of processor-available RAM, while the RAM specification for the Samsung Infuse 4G is not yet known.
  • Keyboard: Both the Motorola Atrix 4G and the Samsung Infuse 4G will have on-screen virtual QWERTY keyboards. However, the Atrix 4G will have a docking keyboard with full-size physical keys.
  • Storage Space: Both the Motorola Atrix 4G and the Samsung Infuse 4G will ship with 16GB of onboard memory, and both will have microSD slots that accommodate memory cards up to 32GB.
  • Camera: The Motorola Atrix will have a 5-megapixel still-image camera that can also record HD video at 720p resolution. The Samsung Infuse 4G will also have an 8-megapixel still-image camera, and it boasts the ability to record HD video at 1080p resolution. Both will have front-facing cameras for video chat, with the Motorola Atrix 4G using a VGA-quality (640 x 480) device and the Samsung Infuse 4G possessing a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
  • Battery: The Motorola Atrix 4G will have a 1,930 mAh lithium-ion battery that is replaceable by the user. The Samsung Infuse 4G will have a 1,750 mAh user-replaceable battery.

    I bought a MOTOROLA ATRIC 4 G for my excellent student/nephew in Palau Island (Koror, Palau)
    and the system there can not activate the phone. The local store here in Stockton, Ca. where I bought the phone tells me that since it is over 30 days, I am stuck with it. I was also assured that they will be able to activate this phone in PALAU ISLAND. I know this is not the issue to be addressed here, but would you suggest any place where I might get some answers and resolution to this problem?

    Thank you,

    Esther Uong-Thompson

    • Esther, I assume you mean the Motorola Atrix… I’ve never heard of an Atric.

      We don’t much deal with AT&T phones at Wirefly, since we do not sell them. However, my guess is that the phone you bought is locked to AT&T. The carriers (such as AT&T) do this so that you are forced to buy service from them. If you try to use another carrier (such as what is available in Palau), the network won’t work. You will have to buy an unlock code for the Atrix to unlock it for use in Palau. I don’t really know where to buy an unlock code or how much it costs, but you could start by Googling “motorola atrix unlock code”. The good news is that, once the phone is unlocked, you can use it anywhere in the world with any GSM carrier… just pop in a SIM and go.

      Good luck!
