Pros: The phone has a slick UI and excellent integration of multimedia and Office functions.
Cons: Landscape mode works only with specific applications and tethering isn’t offered.
Summary: For $49, the Samsung Focus 2 is a pretty good deal, offering a slick interface, solid performance and 4G LTE speeds. Android fans, however, should stick with the $29 Pantech Burst , which also has 4G LTE and offers access to lots more apps. And for $49 on Amazon, those who prefer a Windows Phone can walk away with the more stylish Nokia Lumia 900, which has a better Carl Zeiss camera and a larger AMOLED screen.
Pros: Affordable, Solid performance, Slim and lightweight design, Fairly long battery life
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. The Focus 2 has a 4" Super AMOLED display running at the usual 800 x 480 resolution, and it's powered by the same 1.4GHz Snapdragon second generation CPU used in many current Windows Phone 7.5 Mango smartphones. The Focus 2 fights the popular Nokia Lumia 900 with its low $49.99 price tag with contract.
Pros: Affordable, colorful display and LTE 4G.
Cons: Not much internal storage for a multimedia phone.
