Review: Samsung Focus 2
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.
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: 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...
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
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.
