Samsung Focus S hands-on
Honestly, the Samsung Focus S looks eerily similar to the Samsung Galaxy S II in terms of design. Specifically, it’s constructed out of plastic, very light weight, streamlined, and even has a similar patterned plastic back cover. Obviously, its overall size has increased by a tiny bit over the Focus from last year – well, that’s because it’s packing a larger 4.3” WVGA Super AMOLED Plus display. We can’t complain about the resolution, since all Windows Phones are the same, but our eyes are drooling over the rich and saturated colors the Super AMOLED display is able to produce – and at the same time, it simply shines at all angles.
Under the hood, the handset is powered by a single-core 1.4GHz processor, which is more than sufficient in maintaining the lovable, yet smooth response of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. Furthermore, it features other things such as an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, 16GB of internal storage, high-def video recording, aGPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Sure it might not be a cutting edge phone, nor does it sport a fresh design, but the Samsung Focus S might simply be the most attractive Mango device for AT&T right now.

I think its better. The screen's bigger and better AMOLED. Is the one on this PenTile?

It's AMOLED Plus, so I believe it isn't using pentile. I think this guy should have gone on AT&T's website, he would have known yesterday everything there is to know about the device.

I like a little "heft" to my phones. I just prefer it to feel like I am holding a real device. So, I have naturally leaned to HTC and Motorola over Samsung. But just the way this beauty looks with the Super AMOLED plus screen makes me feel like I may be putting this and the Titan on equal footing.
I mean if I am going to put a protective cover on it anyways, I guess I can get my "heft" that way, huh? Boy, I hope it works out that we get to stay on AT&T.... fun, fun choice...
