The deal-lover in me sits a little taller when I hear about a handset like the Samsung Focus 2. For $50, it offers essential smartphone functionality, plus 4G LTE speeds, a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, and some handy extras like a front-facing camera.
The 5-megapixel rear-facing camera took clear shots that I was happy to affix to e-mails and upload to social-networking sites. However, the sharpness level is set to medium by default, an annoying detail.
Optical illusions caused by the white color and curved silver accents on the spine make the Focus 2 look fatter than it is. At 0.5 inch thick, the width is completely typical. Read the full Samsung Focus 2 review for more details, photos, and a 360-degree video review.
