Hands-On With The Samsung Focus S For AT&T

If the Samsung Focus Flash had made people little bit excited, then the Focus S is capable of making one thrilled. It resembles the former product except that the Focus S provides a slightly larger screen and a more effective camera to an already snappy little phone.

The Samsung Focus S runs on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, and the platform’s black background is very superb. Thanks to the Super AMOLED Plus display. Windows Phone defaults to an all-black background, it will give a little extra battery life out of the Focus S, compared to other phones with similar large screens.

The Foucs S 480×800 Super AMOLED Plus display measures in at 4.3 inches diagonally, resembling the newly announced HTC Rezound in size. But, the Foucs S is much thinner than Rezound, with 8.5mm waist line. This phone is (said to be) America’s first “4G” Windows phone, but this will not run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network.  Instead, it’ll see 4G-capable speeds on AT&T’s HSPA+ network.

It bears a nice textured back panel. It is also incredibly light weigh, but is just a tad too large to fit as comfortably in the pocket as baby brother Focus Flash does. Windows Phone runs under 1.4 GHz processor, and as Focus Flash, Mango’s IE9 browser is a total power house. It do possesses a 8-megapixel rear camera and the picture quality seems to be great with Super AMOLED Plus display. Mango also has a pretty cool camera app, with a familiar “swipe to photo library” feature we’re seeing on iOS 5. In fact, Microsoft has the patent on that feature.

The Focus S is available at AT&T on Sunday, November 6 with an on-contract price tag of $199.99.
