Samsung Focus 2 hands-on

0. phoneArena posted on 07 May 2012, 17:22

Right off the bat, the unique thing that makes the Samsung Focus 2 stand out is the pristine white body it’s flaunting. At its core, the Focus 2 embodies a typical Samsung made device, as it sports a plastic body that’s decent with its construction, but notorious when it comes to attracting smudges. Nevertheless...

Seems to crib a bit from the HTC Radar too. Looks nice enough, just generic and uninspired

I wonder what made Samsung changed their mind about putting out another WP device before WP8 comes out. Anyway this a welcome developement for fans of Windows Phone. So now there is an LTE Windows Phone for $49, $99, and $199 price points at AT&T. Hope this helps the platform gain more adherents.

I am a great supporter of windows phone, but I don't see the need to upgrade to new phone once you've already bought one.The windows platform is the same across all smart phones. For example, I have the Samsung Focus (one). It's a great phone and runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. It can even record 720p video as well as multitask. It runs buttery smooth.The only difference to the Focus 2, I see is the front facing camera and faster processor. Would I really pay $400-$500 (off contract) or $50 and get stuck with a 2-year contract for only those two options and LTE that isn't fully developed yet? I don't think so. HTC Titan II is more appealing, but all it has is the larger screen, processor and better cameras. Waiting for WP8. :)

Also, this seems very similar to the Focus Flash and Focus S...I only see screen size differences
