Samsung Focus review

 

The Samsung Focus is an attractive, well designed phone that has a great camera and a speedy processor. Windows Phone 7 delivers when it comes to usability and performance, but the amount of content users will have access to remains to be seen. Android...

Review: Samsung Focus (mit Video)

 

Die US-Kollegen haben mit dem Samsung Focus das bisher dünnste Windows Phone 7 -Handy unter die Lupe genommen. Es hat vieles mit dem Omnia 7 gemeinsam: 4-Zoll Super AMOLED-Dispay, 8GB Speicher, 1GHzCPU und eine 5-Megapixel-Kamera. Und die hat es in...

Samsung Focus (AT&T)

 

Slim and light. Gorgeous Super AMOLED screen

Very few apps or games for this brand-new platform. Clearly 1.0 software

The Samsung Focus plays up Windows Phone 7's strengths and plays down its weaknesses for a great Windows Phone experience.

Review: Samsung Focus with Windows Phone 7

 

The Windows Phone 7 OS shows a lot of promise. But how is it in practice? Pretty awesome, actually.

Gorgeous tile-based UI laced with large, smooth text doesn’t rip off the iPhone’s app interface. Provides a rich dose of social savvy thanks to tight Facebook integration. Physical camera shutter button is a nice shortcut for shooting quick photos

Internet Explorer lives up to its super-lame reputation. Camera shots too blurry to be taken seriously

Samsung Focus SGH-I917 With Windows Phone 7 Review

 

The Samsung Focus SGH-I917 from AT&T is one of the first Samsung smartphones to come out that runs on the newish Windows Phone 7 operating system. The first ever Windows Phone 7 device that we tested was the HTC HD7 back in November. The HD7 was a fine...

Excellent Display and form-factor, Great camera, Solid performance

Not a 4G device, lacks multitasking capabilities and other features – at-least until Mango update in the fall, no front-facing camera

We dare say that the Samsung Focus feels like a very female-friendly phone with strong “girl” appeal, while the HTC HD7 just looks and feels more masculine to us. Unfortunately, the Samsung Focus lacks 4G and some premium features like a front-facing...

Samsung Focus

 

The Samsung Focus was released in November of 2010 as a Windows-based competitor to the growing smartphone market. This GSM phone features the bells and whistles you would expect to find in a current-gen smartphone: a sleek and sexy design, multi-touch...

Samsung Focus Review

 

The Samsung Focus is one of the very first models with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 operating system, which has a greater emphasis on consumers than earlier versions did. Jen Edwards[...

Almost unbelievably good AM-OLED display, Super fast and responsive, Excellent camera, Very good battery life, Great navigation features in AT&T Navigator

Very large and barely pocketable, especially for the ladies, External speaker has great volume, but is rather tinny, Not much third-party software yet

Samsung Focus Review for WP7 (AT&T)

 

When compared to the other Windows Phone 7 devices, the Samsung Focus is my favorite. I like the bright display, smaller form factor and the fact that it is appreciably lighter. When you broaden the choices to Apple and Android, though, the Samsung...

Review: Samsung Focus with Windows Phone 7

 

We tackle the Samsung Focus, one of the first Windows Phone 7 devices, from a business users perspective. Does it earn Microsoft a promotion?
