AT&T's Samsung Focus 2 is the carrier and phone-maker's LTE answer to T-Mobile's Nokia Lumia 710.

The way I see it, there are three major draws to AT&T's Samsung Focus 2 , a Windows phone that goes on sale May 20. First, there's the glossy-white design. Second there's the LTE compatibility, and third, and for some, most importantly, there's the $49.99 price.

The cameras and processor do a good job rounding out the midrange features, but there are a few ups and downs with the smartphone that you may want to keep in mind as you decide if this is one of the many Samsung Windows phones, or of AT&T's Windows phones, that is for you.
