Exactly two weeks ago we wrote about Samsung Focus 2, a LTE powered Windows Phone made for AT&T network. Finally it has arrived and you can order it from AT&T for as low as $49.99 with two year contract.
This is great deal for its price but if you want to buy one I would still suggested to check the Nokia Lumia 900 which is $50 more but you will get better design, performance, larger screen and quality materials. The Lumia 900 is the best Windows Phone around and Samsung this time released Focus 2 for sake to cover as many potential buyers as possible as this smartphone doesn’t offer anything revolutionary but I am not saying it’s bad smartphone.
The Focus 2 has the same specs we mentioned earlier but I will still remind you in case you are looking to buy this Windows Phone. It has 4.0” inch WVGA Super AMOLED display with 480×800 resolution. This is maximum resolution currently supported by Windows Phone 7.5 and its often called this OS main drawback along with support for only single core processors.
Other features I would like to highlight are 5 megapxiel back facing camera with autofocus and LED flash which is capable of capturing up to 720p videos. Samsung Focus 2 has 1750 mAh battery good 6 hours of talk time and up to 10.4 days standby time. This smartphone has 8GB internal memory and no microSD or other memory slot. The Focus 2 is available only in Glossy Pure White and only on AT&T and no information for availability in different colors.
The main thing that makes this phone to stand out between many other similar phones is 4G LTE support for speedy web browsing on AT&T network. Not many Windows Phone equipped smartphones can be proud of 4G LTE speeds but this one is.
Why you should buy Samsung Focus 2?
Samsung Focus 2 is great option for buyers on a budget who is looking for simple phone user interface and they want a smartphone. Windows Phone works as good as iOS and Android but is much simpler and more beautiful than its rivals and it has better social network integration. The Samsung Focus 2 will allow sharing your pictures, videos and thought faster than any other Android or iOS powered smartphone.
