Summary: I purchased the phone for my wife; she likes the Windows phone interface. We use the phone with a Straight Talk (ATT MVNO) sim card. I specifically wanted an unlocked phone and ATT is one of the few carriers that works well in my area. I chose the phone based on price (~$200), features (4G capable, dual cameras, Windows), brand, and size (compact). I spent 60-90 minutes setting up the phone to work on Straight Talk.
Summary: I bought this phone and it is awesome (first time using a touchscreen phone)............ I live on my phone so it was just perfect with all the live tiles having all my messages an so on in one place, oh yes! Absolutely amazing.
Summary: This phone seemed like a really good deal. It had lots of features and looked so nice. I could not wait to use it. The phone arrived fast, but when it arrived my sim card would not work in the phone. It was supposed to be an unlocked smart phone. I have my service with straighttalk and they have stopped selling the at&t sim cards so I could not order one to see if it would work. Total bust.
Summary: I love this phone it does everything its actually supposed to even though it's unlocked because not all unlocked phone does everything it's suppose to but the only thing is the camera is not all that great
Summary: So far I am very pleased with this phone. The only thing I'm having trouble with is sending or receiving pictures. Not sure why I can't, but hopefully will get it working soon. I love the style and set-up on the phone.
Summary: This is my first smart phone. After researching all OS's and brands, I decided to go with the Focus 2. I liked the small size, I wanted windows os as it is so easy to learn and set things up. I had a Samsung Eternity 2 previously and had great luck with it. I wanted the FM radio. 8GB is plenty for me at this time. I have found all of the apps I need. I love the white and silver color, very stylish. The 4Glte is fast. Great phone, I am happy!
Summary: This is a great phone. I love the WIndows interface - it is unique and very user friendly. The only two things thing I would suggest for improvement are the camera and internal storage. The camera is of mediocre quality; it doesn't focus well and the images are often much darker and more pixelated than my previous phone, which was two years older. The "touch to take" option is nice, but if the camera doesn't focus, it will still take the shot even if it is blurry.
Summary: Good phone, only problem I'm having is with the camera plastic cover. after a few months of being in my pocket all day the plastic cover protecting the camera has been rubbed raw, therefore my pictures come out very foggy
