Samsung Focus 2 Review: Budget-Price, LTE-Enabled

HotHardware
20 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Focus 2 offers good performance using hardware that's not exactly top-of-the line in comparison to Android phones of today (the Focus 2 has a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a single-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor, and 512MB of RAM). Windows Phone 7 dictates some of the hardware requirements for the Focus 2 which may seem to hold it back on paper, but real-world usage shows the phone is very responsive and proves the OS / hardware combination really has a lot to...
  • Pros: Reasonable price, Respectable performance, 4G LTE connectivity
  • Cons: Limited 4G LTE coverage areas, No storage expansion option, Limited Marketplace

Samsung Focus 2 (AT&T)

PC Magazine
28 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Focus 2 is a cross between the existing higher-end Focus S and lower-end Focus Flash; it's an okay phone, but one that's tough to get excited about.
  • Pros: Pleasing mix of features and performance. Windows Phone OS is fun to use. Loud speakerphone.
  • Cons: Voice quality isn't the greatest. Doesn't stand out from other Windows Phones in any way.

Samsung Focus 2 Written Review by Sydney

27 June 2012
  • Summary: I'll be straightforward about this: there are better Windows Phone devices out there, even on AT&T. You've got phones like the Nokia Lumia 900 , the Samsung Focus S , and the HTC Titan II , all of which are more desirable than the Focus 2. However, they're also more expensive than the Focus 2. If money is no issue, snag the Lumia 900 for $50 more and you'll get a better phone overall.

Samsung Focus 2 review: Taking it easy

GSM Arena
24 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Entry into the smartphone world can hardly get any easier than what you'll experience with the Samsung Focus 2. The smartphone offers a nicely looking, no frills, pocket friendly, and well built hardware package, bundled with a software platform which is well known for its elegant simplicity. The latter will surely appeal to many people who are switching from a feature phone. LTE radio on the other hand, future proofs the device quite neatly.

  • Cons: Non-expandable storage, No mass storage mode; Zune-only file management and sync, No Bluetooth file transfers, No Flash (nor Silverlight) support in the browser, No DivX/XviD video support (automatic transcoding provided by Zune software)

Samsung Focus 2 Review

Digitaltrends
20 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Windows Phone may not have much market share, but you can’t blame Samsung for its woes. It has released more WP7 handsets than almost anyone. Unfortunately since the release of the HTC Titan 2 and Nokia Lumia 900 in the last couple months, the Korean maker has been left as the only Windows Phone maker on AT&T without a 4G LTE capable device. Enter the Samsung Focus 2.
  • Pros: Vivid AMOLED screen, Windows Phone 7.5 UI is easy to use, Affordable $50 price, High-speed 4G LTE on AT&T, Comfortable size and feel
  • Cons: Low-resolution screen, No microSD, Single-core processor, No real standout qualities
