Hooray for the photo enthusiast in all of us! Interestingly, we’re cheering because the Samsung Focus S is able to deliver some appealing snapshots with its 8-megapixel auto-focus camera. As a whole, we like the details it’s able to produce, and at the same time, it’s complemented by some saturated colors that reel in our eyes. However, low lighting shots are diminished somewhat due to some digital noise softening them – still, its LED flash seems to cast a decent lighting.

Likewise, we find its 720p video recording favorable seeing that we’re enticed by its smooth 29 frames per second capture rate, distinguishable details, and gradual exposure. However, audio recording is a teeny bit distorted, but still more than audible enough to comprehend. It’s not the sharpest thing to come around, but it’s plentiful with its balanced performance.

In our opinion, it’s one of the better music player interfaces out there, but the Zune experience is also soundly deep with its functionality. Matching the visual treat, its audio quality is actually rather average with its neutral tones.

At this point, it’s all too common to find contemporary handsets excelling in playing high-definition videos – like our test one that’s encoded in DivX 1920 x 1080 resolution. Rightfully so, the Samsung Focus S hits the mark, but above all, its Super AMOLED display tastefully stands tall for its polarizing color reproduction.

Lacking a microSD card slot for expanding its storage, you’ll have to manage content carefully since it only has 14.07GB of internal memory out of the box.
