Our first glimpse of the Samsung Focus 2

It's one thing to read about a phone in a press release and another to see it in the flesh. The Samsung Focus 2 is appealing for several reasons. First, it's a 4G LTE Windows phone. Second, it'll cost only $49.99 with a new two-year contract.

Screen

The Focus 2 features a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, which looks very nice, but not quite as vibrant as the Super AMOLED Plus display.

Styling

Although the phone comes in an attractive white color, it also features silvery trim. Overall, it's a good effect and the handset manages to dodge the cheap-and-cheesy look.

Camera

Don't expect 8 megapixels on a $50 phone. It's a 5-megapixel camera, and so far, the shots were pretty good. We've seen a similar camera on quite a few of Samsung's Windows phones.
