Samsung Focus Flash Review
Of course, we’re naturally inclined to believe that this handset is a camera-centric one because of the ‘Flash’ moniker in its name, but instead, it simply shoots some average still shots. Overall, details are rather flat looking and sometimes appear fuzzy indoors, plus, it has a cooler color production with almost all conditions. With low lighting shots, it exhibits some faint noise, but what’s more distracting is that colors are visibly washed out looking. Needless to say, you’ll be able to get away using them for small printouts, but for larger ones, it’ll only exacerbate its blemishes.
Samsung Focus Flash Sample Video:
When so many music players out there are static in form, it’s always refreshing to always check out the Zune experience with Windows Phone for the simple reason that it employs one of the best presentations out there. To complement it all, the audio quality from its speaker is impressively potent to provide us with some tones that are robust to the ears – plus, it doesn’t crackle at the loudest volume setting.
Nowadays, nearly all devices are able to play high-definition videos with little effort, but what makes it such an alluring thing with the Focus Flash, is the Super AMOLED display it’s packing along. Besides it smoothly playing our test video encoded in DivX 1920 x 1080 resolution, the rich colors and vividness that it exhibits make our eyes glow with envy.

Seems like a solid smartphone alternative to those who do not want an iphone, do want to pay a lot of money, and are not techies. Nice job, samsung......in case anyone wants to know:

Agree, networkdood. This is a great price for an established device. (It has been released as the Omnia in Europe for some time.) For the consumer who just stumbles into an AT&T store looking for a budget smartphone, this will be a fantastic option.

The Windows Phone OS is wonderful so I will just focus on the hardware.
Just got this phone for my wife a week ago. I wanted to get her the Focus S or Titan, but she is new to smart phones and thought those phones were too humongous. So I got her the Focus Flash and she loves it. It is small enough for her, yet the screen is still plenty big enough to type on and get a great Windows Phone experience.
The phone is extremely light in the hand. Camera works very well. One particular thing I noticed was that the battery life is great, which is important for my wife as she rarely remembers to charge the phone. The AT&T guy only charged the phone up to 25% in the store yet it still lasted without recharge for almost two days afterwards until I finally forced my wife to recharge.
This was while she was syncing her Live and Facebook accounts and exploring the phone for the first time, so it was plenty busy. Overall we have not found a fault with it yet.
I suggest check for best deal before you will buy this phone at http://www.bestdealschecking.i

Focus Flash freezes? Has anyone heard about this? Many of the forum messages I found from Google complained that their Focus Flash freezes up, particularly when receiving text messages. They say the only fix is to remove the battery. I'm very interested in this phone because of Windows and because it is smaller and lighter. You don't suppose Google would filter positive reviews of Windows phones, do you? ;-)
