Chip Chick
13 June 2011

  • Pros: Excellent Display and form-factor, Great camera, Solid performance
  • Cons: Not a 4G device, lacks multitasking capabilities and other features – at-least until Mango update in the fall, no front-facing camera

  • 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.

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.

Samsung Focus Review for WP7 (AT&T)

26 November 2010
  • Conclusion: When compared to the other Windows Phone 7 devices, the Samsung Focus is my favorite. I like the bright display, smaller form factor and the fact that it is appreciably lighter. When you broaden the choices to Apple and Android, though, the Samsung Focus doesn’t break new ground.

Samsung Focus

11 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Focus is our favorite Windows 7 Phone launch device. The Dell Venue Pro might offer some serious competition but it's not available as of this writing and is destined for T-Mobile rather than AT&T.
  • Pros: Gorgeous Super AMOLED display, thin and light, good camera., Pro: Wonderful display that stands out from the crowd. Attractive, slim and light. Good performance, very good camera and solid battery life. Only Windows 7 phone with a user-accessible microSD card slot.
  • Cons: Glossy plastics may turn off those who like chic materials., Con: Piano gloss plastics are slippery and won't appeal to the metal and soft touch surface crowd. Must hard reset and wipe the phone if you want to upgrade microSD cards (due to Windows Phone 7 architecture, not a Samsung flaw).
