Summary: Windows Phone 7 isn’t a perfect OS and it will inevitably be compared to other top smartphones. Nonetheless, it represents a giant leap forward from previous editions of Windows Mobile. The user interface is innovative and has a great, contemporary feel. The live tiles offer up-to-the-minute information that isn’t available with conventional icons. We’re also particularly fond of the Zune integration for multimedia functionality.
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.
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.
