Samsung Focus 2 is a great Windows Phone for back to school!

19 Sep

ImageWindows Phones are great smartphones for back to school because their prices are right, and they’re the only phones with Live Tiles that are designed by each individual to reflect his/her interests and personality. They give the information that matters most to students – from friends updates to photos and important reminders.

I had the great opportunity to experience the Samsung Focus 2, and it’s definitely a great Windows Phone for back to school for busy, hard working students! It has the Mango 7.5 operating system, high concept Metro user interface, brilliant 4″ Super AMOLED display that gives sharp, colorful images and video, 4G LTE Speeds which offers up to 10x faster download speeds than 3G for super fast web access, and the fast 1.4GHZ processor is very powerful. I really love the attractive design, built-in speakers and nice display which gives off rich, vibrant color, deep blacks and fine detail. The music playback is outstanding, considering the small size of the phone and the Focus 2’s Zune player performance is also quite impressive. The battery life is about six+ hours of talk time. This mid-high level smart phone is impressive, and will be sure to make any busy student’s life much more productive in school this year (without breaking the bank, especially in today’s market economy).
