Samsung Focus 2 I667


The time that we United States-based Engadgeteers were lusting over Nokia's Lumia 800 and getting to know the HTC Titan, Samsung introduced its Focus S and lower-tiered Focus Flash WP7.5 handsets. Redmond's hardware restrictions haven't exactly changed much since then, begging the question as to how the Focus 2 (also known as the SGH-i667 and Samsung Mandel) fits in as a late follow-up to the original Focus from back in 2010. In this Focus 2 is a slate smartphone which runs Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system. It features a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor, a 4.0-inch Super AMOLED Pentile screen, and 8GB of internal storage. The capacitive buttons are ultra-responsive like the ones we experienced on the older Focus models, and the device's vibration motor left us with unquestionably better haptic feedback than the Lumia 900. The Focus 2 lays claim to a 5-megapixel sensor, LED flash and speakerphone. Peeling off the thin, snap-on battery cover reveals a micro-SIM slot and a 1,750mAh battery to keep the handset juiced.
