Samsung Focus Flash Review
Nearly everything appears in tip-top shape in the calling quality department as both ends of the line are greeted with natural sounding and distortion-free voices. Even better, the speakerphone exhibits the same traits as well, but the earpiece is simply lacking with its volume output – causing us to jam the phone next to our ear in noisy environments.

Displaying mostly 4 out of 5 bars in high coverage areas, we’re content with its strong signal reception – plus, we didn’t experience any dropped calls during our testing in the greater Philadelphia area.

Some would think its 1,500 mAh battery is on the small side, but for a handset of its size, it’s soundly effective in providing ample battery life. In fact, we’re able to achieve close to 1.5 days of normal usage on a single charge, which should also appease heavy/power users with a day of usage.


Conclusion:

There’s no arguing that we’re spoiled time after time with some high-end smartphones, but to tell you the truth, it doesn’t require a super-spec’d device to offer a resounding Windows Phone 7.5 Mango experience. Rather, the Samsung Focus Flash is simply one of those understated smartphones that deceptively has a lot of offer for its price – thus, giving us a good performing smartphone that won’t cost us a leg and an arm to purchase. Naturally, we’ll eventually see a decent amount of killer spec’d Windows Phones in the near future, but in the meantime, you can still experience something worthwhile with the Samsung Focus Flash.
