Review: Samsung Focus 2
25 May 2012

Pros: Very affordable. Slick and compact design. Good call quality. Camera is not bad for a phone.
Cons: Display doesn’t get bright enough. Only 8GB of storage without the option to expand. Comes only in white.
Excerpt: Microsoft and AT&T continue to make the case for purchasing a Windows Phone, and the latest example is the $49.99 Samsung Focus 2. This handset accesses AT&T's fast 4G LTE network and wraps the uniquely compelling Windows Phone 7.5 interface in a refreshingly compact design.
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...
Excerpt: The Focus 2 is Samsung's first LTE Windows Phone, and it's more portable and affordable than the Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC Titan II LTE Windows Phones on ATT.

Coming to AT&T for $49.99, Focus 2 offers a 1.4 GHz single-core CPU, 4-inch Super AMOLED display with 480x800 pixels, 5-megapixel...
Excerpt: Windows Phone is making headway in the US mobile market, and they're working hard to appeal to several different price tiers. The Samsung Focus 2 is coming to AT&T on May 20th for $49.99 on contract, and despite the low price tag, it offers some great features.
First impressions on Samsung Focus 2 – Samsung’s first 4G LTE Windows Phone

Conclusion: AT&T is selling Samsung Focus 2 for $49.99 making it a cheap offer even if it were to hold you on a two-year contract. Its specs don’t quite match up to HTC Titan 2 or Nokia Lumia 900 but given its budget-friendly price and the ability to connect to the carrier’s LTE networks, it’s an option worth...
Conclusion: While the Samsung Focus 2 may appear to be just another mid-to-high level smartphone, it’s actually an impressive Windows Phone 7 handset that gives the pricier Nokia Lumia 900 a run for its money.
