Samsung Focus, AT&T ?'s

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anybody here in OCN have the Samsung Focus? If so how do you like it overall? As much as I love my iPhone4 and it's apps crashing I'm kind of tired of it. Some things though I would like to know:

1. Does it have a copy/paste feature like the 4G?

2. Your opinion on the phone compared to others you may have had.

Oh and how do you like Windows 7 Phone?

I actualy just got one. It's my first phone. I went to the At&t store and looked around, and I really liked that one. Here are my pros and cons:

Pros:

1. Very responsive: I tried out the iphone 4 and a few androind phones, but I felt the focus was very responsive compared to them. If you want to go to internet explorer, and then you decide you want to actualy check your e-mail, you can do it almost instantly.

2. Look: It looks pretty sick. It's black on the back and front, with some silver along the side.

3. Braging rights : I'm actualy the only one of my friends that has one, so it's pretty cool to show it off .

4. The OS: I really like the layout of the windows OS. I personaly like the boxes instead of the rounded icons with the iphone 4. It makes it look a lot sharper because theres no curves, so theres no aliasing. Everything is very easy to find.

5. The screen: The screen is amazing! It's very vibrant, and makes stuff really look nice. I looked at the HTC HD7 and the thing looks really dull compared to the Focus.

6. The camera: I mean, it's a phone camera, but it's really a lot better than I thought. It can take some pretty decent photos.

7. The built in speaker: It's a built in speaker, so it's not that good, but it's actualy a lot better than I thought a phone's speaker could be. It's a lot better than the ipod touch.

Cons:

1. No copy and paste: Ah! Kind of annoying once in a while when you need to use it.

2. Short battery life: I don't use it that much, but I find myself rechargind it every 3-4 days.

Thats about it really. I like mine.

Dang I need copy paste lol, the only way I would trade the iPhone 4 for it!

Thank you! You pretty much convinced me to get one, now I just hope they add that copy paste feature. That's the only real difference I see with the phone.

Yeah, it's kinda annoying if you want to just text someone a link, but then you can't.

true that lol
post #6 of 7
had the samsung focus since it came out love it, get alot of comments on how thin it is from friedns, and the screen is gorgeous.. hmm what else it does have copy paste (just got the update for that 2 days ago havent used it yet though my GF has).

ive came from (phones in the last 4 years) an iphone 3g, 3gs, Xperia, HTC surround, SE s500i, SE K810i, SE c510 and.. i think thats all ... the picture quality is better then the other phones ive used rivaling the cybershot Sony ericssons i had in the past, it also has a lot of tweeks you can do to the camera to give it some flair, although i have a tendency to use the anti shake alot to help with blur from movement. Along with being fluid as an iphone in terms of the os.

The reason i went WP7 (coming from my iphoen 3gs that i had last) was because i found the iphone os a bit boring and need something new.

My biggest complaint is the lack of apps.. but seems like more are coming out all the time. And as said before the battery life isent the best .. ( i could charge my SE and it last a few days), takes about 1-2 hours for a full charge and lasts about a day with med to high ussage.

But yeah great phone i think you would like it, and it does have copy paste feature that was just added in the update
