Reviews summary

Based on 15 reviews

There aren’t too many products available running Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS. Part of the reason for this is the somewhat strict system requirements for such smartphones. So the Samsung Focus 2, which runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango by default, is almost guaranteed to perform well and give a great overall experience. And it actually does, based on comments from users and professional device reviews. It’s tagged as one of the most impressive smartphones with Windows Phone 7 released to date. And it’s affordable, too.

The Focus 2 is available at a cheaper price than the old Nokia flagship with Windows Phone 7, the Lumia 900. Despite being cheaper, it ships with similar specs, only with a slightly smaller screen, less internal storage, and a less impressive camera. But it has a few advantages of its own, which include a great processor and RAM combination, 4G LTE network support, and a removable battery. These make the Focus 2 more than capable of easily handling the Windows Phone 7 OS.

Speaking of the OS, the Focus 2 won’t be getting an upgrade to Windows Phone 8 any time soon. In fact, it will be stuck with Windows Phone 7 until the end of time. If you can look past this potential deal breaker, the Focus 2 stands to offer plenty of bang for your buck. Just don’t expect its app selection to be as good or as extensive as the one on iOS and Android, and you’ll be fine.

4. Uses an old design and looks boring. (The Bad)

A solid phone, one that offers performance a small step above what you would expect for

from Brighthand

The Samsung Focus 2 is definitely a solid phone, one that offers performance a small step above what you would expect for $50. It's certainly a good deal for an entry-level phone (with the not-so-entry-level luxury of 4G LTE), but bearing that in mind, if you're willing to shell out another $50 you can get your hands on the flagship Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 900. The Lumia 900 is not without its flaws -- its awful camera springs to mind pretty quickly -- but for another $50, you can get a much, much better-quality screen, better battery life, more storage, and, depending on whether or...

Scorching LTE data speeds, lush AMOLED screen, lightweight and slim build

from Pocket-lint

While the Samsung Focus 2 may appear to be just another mid-to-high level smartphone, it’s actually an impressive Windows Phone 7 handset that gives the pricier Nokia Lumia 900 a run for its money.

Don’t take that to mean it’s as good as the 900 - the 8GB of non-upgradeable storage is disappointing, the design is dull and the camera is distinctly average here - but if you want the Windows 7 OS alongside a great screen and speedy performance, the Focus 2 delivers.

LTE is a huge draw too - provided you live somewhere where it works! In short, we like what Samsung has done wi... Full review

A compact and user-friendly Windows Phone that offers 4G LTE speeds at an affordable price

from Laptop Magazine
For $49, the Samsung Focus 2 is a pretty good deal, offering a slick interface, solid performance and 4G LTE speeds. The Focus 2 is a solid choice for shoppers looking for a compact smartphone that's easy to use, but there's nothing here that really stands out... Full review

Ideal for those who want to get into Windows Phone 7 for as little money as possible

from SlashGear
The Samsung Focus 2 is a very tidy device, and currently the cheapest phone on AT&T to combine LTE and Windows Phone 7. Anyone who purchases it won’t be disappointed, especially those who require long battery life. That said, if a great camera or a big, high-res screen are in your list of must-haves, look elsewhere...

The Focus 2 can’t be ignored due to its price point and features

from BWOne
Whether or not current WP users will be able to upgrade to WP8 is still a mystery, but if we get the green light in assurance, picking up this device is a must for anyone looking to get into the smartphone game. With a a price point of $49.99, above average camera, and packing that oh so sexy 4g LTE, brushing off this device would be idiotic if you’re not a tech junkie like myself. I give the Samsung Focus 2 4g LTE the thumbs up folks!.. Full review

The Samsung Focus 2 gets you access to AT&T’s 4G LTE in a compact, appealing, and most importantly, cheap device

from Wired
The Samsung Focus 2 gets you access to AT&T’s 4G LTE in a compact, appealing, and most importantly, cheap device. Don’t get me wrong, this definitely isn’t a better phone than the Nokia Lumia 900. It doesn’t have the same curb appeal and falls short in comparative specs like the onboard camera and available storage. But if you’re looking for an affordable, entry-level smartphone and are curious about the Windows Phone platform, the Samsung Focus 2 is a good choice... Full review

A worthy successor to the original Samsung Focus

from WPCentral
The Samsung Focus 2 won't appeal to everyone but that should not be a poor reflection on a very nice, baseline Windows Phone. The Samsung Focus 2 is currently being offered through AT&T for $49.99 under contract... Full review

Offers a nicely looking, no frills, pocket friendly, and well built hardware package

from GSMArena

Entry into the smartphone world can hardly get any easier than what you'll experience with the Samsung Focus 2. The smartphone offers a nicely looking, no frills, pocket friendly, and well built hardware package, bundled with a software platform which is well known for its elegant simplicity. The latter will surely appeal to many people who are switching from a feature phone. LTE radio on the other hand, future proofs the device quite neatly.

The 5MP snapper of the I667 turned out to be a surprisingly good performer in both still and video capture. The retail package is also great. Qu... Full review

4G LTE, solid performance, camera and video camera are both impressive

from Phone Scoop

The Samsung Focus 2 isn't perfect, but it's not far off the mark, either. My biggest gripe with the handset is its slippery plastic shell. Yes, it really is that easy to drop. Otherwise, it earns solid A's across the board.

The display looks great, the phone latches onto AT&T's network firmly, voice calls sound great, and the battery lasts all day under HSPA+ coverage. The user interface isn't perfect, but it performs speedily and without trouble. The camera and video camera are both impressive and the PhotoStudio software from Samsung really lets creative types enhance their content.... Full review

It's an okay phone, but one that's tough to get excited about

from PC Magazine
The Samsung Focus 2 ($49.99 with two-year contract) is Samsung's first Windows Phone with 4G LTE. It's a follow-up to the Samsung Focus S and smaller Focus Flash, two of the more popular cell phones to grace Microsoft's latest mobile platform. But rather than advance the design in any way, Samsung appears to have fused the two together, rounded the edges off, and called it a day. It's a fine choice, but there are certainly more tempting options... Full review
