Samsung Focus Flash review: Flashing around

GSM Arena
13 November 2011
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Focus Flash is a device, which will easily grow on you. A lot of this has to do with the low expectations which the smartphone’s price point predisposes you to have towards it when opening its box.
  • Cons: No system-wide file manager, Only 5.5GB of built-in memory available to the user and no option to expand it, No Bluetooth file transfers, No USB mass storage mode, Limited third-party apps availability, No Flash (nor Silverlight) support in the browser, Too dependent on Zune software for file man...

Samsung Focus review

  • Summary: It's unfortunate that all this stuff must go wrong for Microsoft and its hardware partners. Like I've said before, twice: Windows Phone 7 has so much potential to be great, but the execution on many of the devices on which it runs has been spotty and, so far, not so good.

  • Excerpt: Well, a few weeks ago was the HTC Inspire, so apparently it’s time to do a 180 degree turn and review something developed by Microsoft instead. And so, like a plot twist in a bad movie, in comes the Samsung Focus, practically dripping Windows ubiquity, right when needed.

  • Excerpt: Windows Phone 7 is back! Aaron reviews the Samsung Focus , another WP7 device on AT&T. Aside from a gorgeous 4-inch Super AMOLED display, it offers a 1 GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, and a microSD card slot. It's a nice device, but is it the best Windows Phone 7 device on the market?

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Focus plays up Windows Phone 7's strengths and plays down its weaknesses for a great Windows Phone experience.

Samsung Focus Review by Taylor

phonedog.com
10 December 2010
  • Summary: Stacking the Focus up against its counterparts, whether on paper or in action, holds its own. It's size and the materials it's made of may not be as charming as the HD7, and the battery life may not be the best out there, but the Focus has some unique benefits of its own.
  • Pros: Lightweight with good build quality; has microSD card slot, can capture some great pictures, quick with its Snapdragon processor; extremely crisp and colorful Super AMOLED display.
  • Cons: Mediocre battery life; very cheap, “plasticy” feel; some lag from time to time (third-party apps); Windows Phone 7 still has some bugs; blemishes very easily.
