CNET First Look
Samsung Focus S and Focus FlashWe get a quick peak at two Samsung Windows 7.5 Phones coming to AT&T on Nov. 6, the Focus S and Focus Flash. These sister phones have much in common, but the Flash is smaller with a lower-end megapixel camera.
-Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNET, and we're here with 2 new windows phones from AT&T, the Samsung Focus S and the Samsung Flash. Now, there are sister phones, but the Focus S has a bigger screen. It's 4.3 inches and it has a better camera on the back 8-megapixel. The Focus Flash is your lower end one. It's a little on the cheaper side smaller screen 3.7 inches and a 5-megapixel camera in the back. Now, as sister phones, they both have a lot in common. They are both Mango, so that's Window 7.5. They have an internal 1.4 gigahertz process and I'm told they both have the same amount of memory as well, and they are both on the AT&T HSPA Plus 4G network. The Focus S is gonna be about $200 worth of contract and the Focus Flash is gonna be about $200 with the contract and the focus flash is gonna about $50, so definitely for a more affordable phone, it's gonna get a little bit of in a smaller package, but internally it's about the same. Now, taking just a look at the Focus S. This is a very thin phone. It has a plastic bag, but it has a nice texture to it. So, it doesn't feel too slippery. You have a dedicated camera button on the top here, and you also have that in the lower end focus flash. Both have a front facing camera. This one is 1.3-megapixels. Design-wise, there are just small differences. As you can see in the focus flash, there's a little bit of a button design on the windows home button and you don't see that on the focus. So, there you have it. If you're looking for a windows phone, this the latest and greatest from AT&T on the windows side and you have 2 different options to go with the plan on your budget.
