|Samsung Focus seems is the US equivalent of the Samsung Omnia 7, at least regarding the possession of a 4" Super AMOLED screen with WVGA resolution, 5MP camera, 8GB of storage and is 0.35" (9mm) thick.|
Customer Reviews of Samsung Focus I917 Unlocked Windows 7 Cell Phone
Phone was smaller than I wanted.10/8/2014
It was very easy working with Good Guys. The product was not what I wanted. I had no problem returning it. I have gotten my refund.
Hope You Don't Plan to Talk Indoors...9/8/2013
Some Very Nice Features, beautiful display, but the reception is AWFUL. I bought this for my son and he must go outside in order to hear the caller! Despite research and Microsoft Support, we still haven't managed to connect to the Marketplace to get apps. Still working on it. I am purchasing a signal booster and am hoping to resolve the Marketplace problem soon.
Sound quality is not so good8/26/2013
Has very bad sound quality. I had more expectations on this one as this was from Harman. It disappointed me.
Excellent Display and form factor. Great camera. Solid performance. Lightweight with good build quality. Has microSD card slot.
I purchased this phone hoping I could get a very nice smartphone at a good price. When I received the phone I was amazed at the quality of it. The picture looks amazing, the sound is great, and the touch screen seems better than an iPhone! I had an issue with the charging of the phone taking too long in the beginning, but am happy to say I no longer have an issue with that. This is a great phone that I would recommend to anyone!
Windows mobile user 6+ Years4/23/2012
I have had windows mobile for many years now, and jumped on the focus when it first came out. Through the updates that microsoft has put out, it has been improving. As a manager of 12+ indivisuals, this phone allows me to quickly access Email, Excel Documents, Weather, and People. Though Android is tempting, as there are more APPs available for it, I will continue to use Windows Phone.
I've been using the Focus for about three months now and it's honestly by far the best phone I've ever owned. The screen is gorgeous, the WP7 OS is responsive and intuitive, and most of all it actually works as a phone! As a previous dedicated Iphone owner, I can say that I have absolutely no regrets in switching, and I can see the jealousy of my family (who are still Apple nuts) whenever I let them mess around with the interface. The only cons I can put against it are that it only comes with 8 gigs initially (which is just ridiculously low these days), but I stuck another 16 in with an sd card I had lying around. Some people seem to be having an issue with not having their cards work, but I've never had a problem. Also-and this is incredibly minor-there's no gapless playback on the Zune software. I know only about 5 people will actually care (or even notice), but it's slightly irritating at times. In it's current state, I would already put the Focus and WP7 at the cream of the mobile crop, but with the Mango update coming in a week or two, I really can't see any other OS coming near to holding a candle to it. A lot of people are still understandably skeptical due to Microsoft's less than stalwart track record with mobile devices, but WP7 fixes every issue of the past and does what Apple has quit doing-innovating.
Very nice phone1/19/2012
This Samsung is a really nice and well designed phone. The Windows OS is absolutely amazing, I thought I was going to miss my iphone a lot, but to be honest, after some months with this new phone, I must admit that is was a really nice change. Of course on the Iphone universe you have a way bigger apps collection, but the interface and the integration with social sites on the Windows Phone is the better on the market. Don't even doubt, go for it and you will be extremelly happy.
