Review: Samsung Focus 2

Wired
25 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Nokia has committed wholly to the Windows Phone platform with its flagship Lumia line, but it isn’t the only manufacturer investing in Microsoft’s mobile OS. Samsung’s new Focus 2 is the company’s fourth Windows Phone device, and it’s a smartphone worth your attention. Unlike the company’s Android devices, Samsung’s latest Windows Phone isn’t aimed at the upper echelons of the smartphone market.

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

Samsung Focus 2

  • 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. Don’t take that to mean it’s as good as the 900 - the 8GB of non-upgradeable storage is disappointing, the design is dull and the camera is distinctly average here - but if you want the Windows 7 OS alongside a great screen and speedy performance, the Focus 2 delivers.
  • Pros: Scorching LTE data speeds, lush AMOLED screen, lightweight, slim build
  • Cons: Just 8GB of non-expandable memory, underwhelming camera performance, forgettable looks
