Samsung Focus Flash review: Flashing around

 

Windows Phone 7.5 Mango has hit the market with much fanfare and a slew of new devices. The Samsung Focus Flash for AT&T is part of the aforementioned group. The American sibling of the Samsung Omnia W, together with its upscale partner, the Focus S...

3.7" 16M-color Super AMOLED screen with WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with HSDPA (14.4 Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76Mbps) ; Windows Phone 7.5 operating system ; Ability to uninstall wireless provider’s proprietary...

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...

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...

Bright, colorful Super AMOLED Plus display ; Low $50 price ; High-end specs for its price ; Solid construction ; Windows Phone 7.5 interface rocks

No microSD ; 5-megapixel camera is a bit slow ; Poor battery life ; 3.7-inch screen may be too small for some

The battery life hurts, but aside from that, the Samsung Focus Flash performs as well as any Windows Phone...

The new Samsung Focus Flash may not be the most impressive device we've seen lately, but it does offer an overall decent value and comes in at a fair price. Announced back in September and available now the Focus Flash has a lot to offer like its...

If you’re on AT&T and have been eying a budget Android handset or maybe an old iPhone 3GS consider trying the Samsung Focus Flash. The few letdowns like the weak market and short list of apps may run some users away. If you are just looking for a...

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.

Whereas Nokia's Lumia 800 is standing tall as the flagship Windows Phone 7.5 device to lead out 2011 for Europe, the selection of new Mango devices is decidedly more competitive in the US. Samsung is taking a very strong two-tier approach with its...

Crisp, bright display ; Low cost ; Competitive Windows Phone specs

Poor camera ; Plastic hardware ; So-so call quality

The cheaper half of Samsung's two-tier Windows Phone 7.5 strategy for AT&T packs quite a bit into its smaller, 3.7-inch frame

Microsoft: Windows Phone Mango now being delivered to '100 percent' of compatible devicesSamsung Focus S hands-onMotorola Atrix 4G reviewThe Focus Flash is really a rather unassuming device. Sure, it packs Mango and a 1.4GHz Snapdragon, but its...

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)

 

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.

The Focus Flash is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and dual-band HSPA+ 14.4 (850/1900 MHz) device; that makes it three-and-a-half G in our book, instead of 4G. It also has 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. This is a good voice phone; callers sounded clear...

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

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.

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...

AT&T and Samsung recently released the the Samsung Focus Flash, the spiritual (and literal) little brother to the Focus S. The phone's size and price have shrunk, but should your attention also shrink away from it? Find out in the review below.
