2. Samsung Focus Windows Phone 7 phone—Configuration

Samsung Focus windows phone 7 phone is impressive in terms of color restoration and details, with an AF 5MP camera with LED flashlight, but you can’t half press the shutter key to focus. Similar to HDR in iPhone, Samsung Focus adopts the WDR (wide dynamic range) technology, bringing a good performance on capturing still life photos. However, we are a bit disappointed with its 720P video recording effect with Low saturation and frame rate.

Some people are likely to be worried a 1500mAh battery of Samsung Focus can’t feed its electronic-guzzling functions, like those Sky Drive photo syncs. In the test, we find that Samsung Focus will keep on working for more than one day even on heavy days of calling, emailing, gaming and browsing. Focus will support about 2 days with moderate use. When it drops into 10%-15% of battery power, please remember to charge it ASAP.
