Samsung Focus

Here is a short consumer review of the new Samsung smartphone – the Windows Phone 7 operated Focus /also known as Samsung SGH-i917/. The Samsung Focus is the lightest weight Windows phones at launch. It has a 4″ Super AMOLED display that’s gorgeous and responsive to touch. Like other Windows Phone 7 smartphones, it has a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 3G, WiFi and a 5 megapixel camera with flash. It’s currently the only Windows 7 phone that supports removable microSD cards.

Samsung Focus main features
-4.0” Touchscreen with Super AMOLED™ display
The Super AMOLED screen gives you a razor sharp, cinema quality image. It makes surfing the web and reading texts much easier in bright sunlight. The brilliant display allows you to quickly access the information most important to you with Live Tiles on your start screen.
-Windows Phone with downloadable apps via Marketplace
-Social Networking Integration
Now your calendar, contacts, and social networking sites are fully integrated through Windows Phone People Hub. It makes staying in touch with friends and business contacts much more efficient and streamlined.
-5MP Camera & Camcorder
The 5 megapixel camera with flash and auto focus takes razor sharp photos and videos. For sound quality, the 3.5 mm headphone jack allows you to listen to music with high-end headphones rather than just simple ear buds. And Wi-Fi is always handy when you’re out and about. The Camera + Pictures Hub contains your entire collection of photos and videos, including the ones saved to your phone and even pictures your friends have recently posted on Facebook or Windows Live.
