Samsung Focus Flash (AT&T)

 

The Samsung Focus Flash is a powerful budget smartphone for AT&T subscribers, but it will do little to attract new customers to Windows Phone 7.5.

Inexpensive. Large screen given the diminutive form factor. Good voice quality. Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) is a smooth, cool OS.

Bland design. Limited third-party app selection. A few bugs.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions All Windows Phones are more or less identical on the multimedia front. You get a standard-size 3.5mm headphone jack, 8GB of internal storage, and no memory card slot. Music tracks sounded fine through Samsung Modus...

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. We did however, mention already that...

Samsung Focus Flash Review: 4G Comes To Windows Phone 7

 

I have mixed feelings when it comes to the Samsung Focus Flash. Retailing for $50 (with a new 2-year contract on AT&T as of 11/7/2011), the Focus Flash is unlike most other Windows Phone 7 (WP7) devices we have seen to date. It's one of the first 4G...

Faster than average processor for a WP7 phone ; 4G connectivity

Poor camera ; Spongy buttons

One of the best Windows Phone 7 phones you can currently buy, the Flash makes up for its disappointing camera with 4G speeds and beefy processor.

Samsung Focus Flash review

 

Microsoft: Windows Phone Mango now being delivered to '100 percent' of compatible devices Samsung Focus S hands-on Motorola Atrix 4G reviewThe

Gorgeous, high-contrast display ; Smooth, speedy operation ; Solid construction

Lackluster camera ; Limited storage ; Mediocre battery life

Despite some tradeoffs in the storage and camera departments, the modestly proportioned Focus is a worthy contender for smartphone dollar -- especially considering the price.

Samsung Focus Flash (AT&T) review:

 

For only $49.99 for AT&T's Samsung Focus Flash, you might think you'd be getting a low-quality Windows Phone. I'm happy to report that you'd be wrong. The Focus Flash may indeed be the less expensive and less provisioned of AT&T's two new Samsung...

The stylish Samsung Focus Flash runs Windows Phone 7.5 on a vibrant Super AMOLED screen, and has two cameras and a fast 1.4GHz processor. The speakerphone was surprisingly strong. The phone runs on AT&T's HSPA+ network.

The Focus Flash's call quality was a little iffy, the fuzzy VGA camera quality can give you the spins, and the screen really should be a little larger.

The Samsung Focus Flash offers excellent value for its modest price, with a zippy 1.4GHz processor, two cameras, and a vivid screen, though the screen's smallish size and the phone's middling call quality are detractions.

Samsung Focus Flash Review

 

The Samsung Focus Flash is right there to get the party started for AT&T. Flaunting a fabulous $49.99 on-contract price, it's sure to get some attention with its affordable cost, but let's hope that it'll shine just as magnificently as some of the...

Samsung Focus Flash (AT&T) Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone review

 

The Samsung Focus Flash is the smaller of the two new Windows Phone 7.5 smartphones that Samsung has produced for AT&T. Featuring a 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, the Focus Flash is compact little phone that combined with Windows Phone 7.5, offers...

Fast performance, beautiful screen, nice build quality, inexpensive

Lousy camera, equally poor video recording quality

AT&T will offer the Samsung Focus Flash for $49.99 starting on November 6. You can see a video of the phone in action after the tablet of contents, below.

Samsung Focus Flash review

 

Samsung's Focus Flash will soon join the Samsung Focus S on AT&T's shelves as the South Korea-based company's second and third Windows Phone devices in the United States. The Focus Flash is a budget-friendly $50 handset and, despite its low price...

I’m very impressed with Windows Phone 7.5, and the Focus Flash is a great, affordable vessel for the new OS. Everything is fluid, the experience is unique and alive, and I never really found myself complaining about any aspect of the user interface....

Samsung Focus Flash

 

If you're going to buy a Windows 7 phone, the Samsung Focus Flash is a good choice. It doesn't have every up-to-date feature that the newer version does, but it's fast and performs well at a relatively economical price.

The Samsung Focus Flash is very fast – it runs on Windows Mango OS and has a 1.4GHz processor

Although it is a reliable device and it is still available from the manufacturer, upgraded versions are available

This Samsung phone is fast, reliable and relatively economical. We recommend this phone to buyers who aren't ready to commit to the more expensive version.
