Fresh-faced Flash

The Samsung Focus Flash may be the more budget-minded of Samsung's two new Windows Phones, but that doesn't mean it's bland. The dapper-looking handset has squared-off edges and a useful center button. The 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen is clear and bright, but feels a mite small.

Camera and flash

What would the Focus Flash be without a flash? The phone has a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with flash, and a VGA front-facing camera. The shots are pretty good overall.
