Its main selling point is certainly the Super AMOLED Plus screen – its ultra-deep blacks and Microsoft’s Metro UI are a match made in heaven. - GSMArena Team, GSMArena

Boasting speedy performance, a solid camera and of course Microsoft's Mango operating system

from Phone Scoop (over 3 years ago)

The Focus S takes all the good things I saw in the Focus Flash and offers them in slightly larger and better-looking package. The Focus S performs well across the board and there's little negative I can say about it. The worst problems the Focus S has are related to Windows Phone 7's rigid appearance... More

Going for the Samsung Focus S is a choice you are unlikely to regret

from GSMArena (over 3 years ago)

It seems hard to find a better player than the Samsung Focus S in the US Windows Phone game at the moment. The device’s hardware is as good as it gets for the platform, but its main selling point is certainly the Super AMOLED Plus screen – its ultra-deep blacks and Microsoft’s Metro... More

It’s clearly fashioning a foundational core to set it apart from other Windows Phones

from PhoneArena (over 3 years ago)

Unlike its Android counterpart, the Samsung Focus S lacks the prestige and notoriety of its close sibling, but more importantly, it’s clearly fashioning a foundational core to set it apart from other Windows Phones. Impressively, it’s the best Mango filled device to own right now, edging... More

Great display, snappy performance, thin design

from MobileBurn (over 3 years ago)

The Samsung Focus S is an impressive and enjoyable smartphone to use. While it is not perfect by any means, and it suffers from Windows Phone's continuing growing pains, it has some really great qualities that make it worth a look for anybody in the market for a new smartphone. The only real negative... More

Lovely OS, excellent display, very thin and light

from Mobile Tech Review (over 3 years ago)

It's hard to not like a smartphone with serious Samsung Galaxy S II DNA when married to the elegant and enjoyable Windows Phone Mango OS. The display is lovely and Samsung's Super AMOLED technology makes those colorful Live Tiles pop. The phone is fast; in fact it's extremely fast. That's a testament... More

The Samsung Focus S packages Microsoft's attractive Windows Phone OS with a stunning screen and slim Galaxy S II style

from Laptop Magazine (over 3 years ago)

The Samsung Focus S serves up a compelling Windows Phone 7.5 Mango experience in a thin and attractive package with a great display. And assuming the price stays at $99, this smartphone is a good value, putting it between the $49 Samsung Focus Flash (which has a smaller 3.7 inch-screen and a lower-res... More

Bolstered by a brilliant display and strong hardware specs, the Samsung Focus S is arguably the best Windows Phone ever released

from Cnet (over 3 years ago)

Samsung has definitely led the way with Windows Phones, from the original Samsung Focus to the loosely related Focus Flash and Focus S we see now. Any way you look at it, the Focus S, with its clean, attractive, powerful minimalism, is easy to use and lets Windows Phone shine. There are few overt flaws,... More

A solid phone that doesn't quite feel deserving of its high-end price

from Engadget (over 3 years ago)

Honestly, we don't have any major complaints about the Samsung Focus S, but there wasn't much that wowed us either. If you're a Windows Phone 7 fan you'll find plenty to like about the device. Mango hums along nicely and the Super AMOLED Plus display, despite its shortcomings in the pixel density department,... More

The excellent battery life is sure to make your Android and iPhone friends jealous

from Pocketnow (over 3 years ago)

Last year's Samsung Focus was arguably the best Windows Phone available so I was certainly expecting Samsung to step it up with their second generation Windows Phones. The Focus S is actually the high-end model among two new Samsung Focus phones with the Focus Flash being a more budget-friendly device.... More
