Samsung Focus 2 review

 

Ready for Samsung's latest entrant to the Windows Phone game? Hopefully you answered "yes," because we're about to take you through an in-depth look at

Solid build quality, if a bit plasticky ; Grade A battery life ; Fantastic audio quality

PenTile display ; 6.51 usable GB of non-exapandable storage ; Middling speeds over LTE ; Underwhelming camera performance

The Focus 2 is a solid little handset, but the Lumia 900 offers more bang for your buck if you can manage the extra $50.

Samsung Focus 2 Is a Windows Phone Bargain

 

The Samsung Focus 2 is a new Windows Phone for AT&T that has two key things going for it: slick looks and a low $50 price tag.

Samsung Focus 2 review: Taking it easy

 

The Samsung I667 Focus 2 for AT&T is the third LTE addition to the carrier's impressive Windows Phone lineup. However, in order to avoid clashing with the platform heavyweights - the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II - the Korean offering...

Samsung Focus 2 (AT&T)

 

The Samsung Focus 2 is a compact and user-friendly Windows Phone that offers 4G LTE speeds at an affordable price. However, it's not the best deal for AT&T shoppers.

Click to EnlargeFor $49, the Samsung Focus 2 is a pretty good deal, offering a slick interface, solid performance and 4G LTE speeds. Android fans, however, should stick with the $29 Pantech Burst, which also has 4G LTE and offers access to lots more...

Samsung Focus 2 (AT&T)

 

The Samsung Focus 2 is a cross between the existing higher-end Focus S and lower-end Focus Flash; it's an okay phone, but one that's tough to get excited about.

Pleasing mix of features and performance. Windows Phone OS is fun to use. Loud speakerphone

Voice quality isn't the greatest. Doesn't stand out from other Windows Phones in any way

The 5-megapixel camera offers 720p audio recording, and includes an LED flash. There's also a front-facing VGA camera for video chats. Test photos looked fine for this class of camera. Outdoor test shots were colorful, but the sky became all white....

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...

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

Low-resolution screen ; No microSD ; Single-core processor ; No real standout qualities

There's nothing flashy about the Focus 2 and it doesn't have the navigation apps of the Nokia Lumia 900, but it's one of the more comfortable phones on the market and has a form factor that hits that size sweet spot.

AT&T has no shortage of value-priced phones, and just lately, a pretty good selection of 4G LTE devices as well. But the two haven't crossed over much yet, and the ranks of Windows Phone 7 devices are a little slim as well. Happily, all three of these...

It’s also hard to recommend the Focus 2 above the Nokia Lumia 900. The extra fifty bones is worth it in basically every category. Likewise, the other alternatives mentioned above can get you access to more apps (if not such a polished OS) for the same...

Samsung Focus 2 ( AT&T)

 

Samsung and AT&T must have a good thing going with their array of Windows Phone devices, because here comes the fourth in line, the Samsung Focus 2. Two things make this handset, running Windows Phone 7.5, stand out. First, its 4G LTE connectivity...

AT&T's Samsung Focus 2 has an attractive design, a nice screen, a solid 5-megapixel camera, and 4G LTE speeds.

Memory and battery life are in shorter supply on the Samsung Focus 2, and the glossy body likes to play slip-and-slide.

A generously low $50 price tag pumps up the value on the Windows Phone Samsung Focus 2, which has a satisfying range of features and support for LTE speeds.

The Samsung Focus 2 is set for arrival, bringing the Korean based company up to snuff, but more importantly, it's aiming to stiff arm the competition with its tantalizing $49.99 on-contract price. Will its tempting price point be enough to sway...

Affordable $50 on-contract price ; Adorable design ; LTE enabled

Shoots terrible photos ; Poor calling quality

We have to say, at $49.99 with a 2-year contract, the Samsung Focus 2 isn’t that bad of a smartphone – even more when this is a brand spanking new device we’re talking about! Strengthening its value, we love that it sports an adorable design, equipped...

Samsung Focus 2 Review: Budget-Price, LTE-Enabled

 

Samsung and AT&T are hoping to attract customers who want a sleek Windows Phone at an affordable price with the Samsung Focus 2. The Focus 2 is Samsung's first 4G LTE Windows Phone. It's also the third Windows Phone from AT&T that connects to the...

Reasonable price ; Respectable performance ; 4G LTE connectivity

Limited 4G LTE coverage areas ; No storage expansion option ; Limited Marketplace

The Samsung Focus 2 offers good performance using hardware that's not exactly top-of-the line in comparison to Android phones of today (the Focus 2 has a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a single-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor, and 512MB of RAM). Windows...
