Samsung Focus 2 I667 for AT&T is a Windows Phone. The phone anyways, is in no match with the other 2 heavyweights of the AT&T Windows phone line-up, Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC Titan II. The phone could be viewed as an entry level smartphone by the customers. The Windows phone from Nokia is low in terms of both price and specification and though being a newbie in the market it does not have anything that will come as a surprise to the market. A Windows operating system based phone with Samsung’s hardware and that is all what the phone is, but at a low price it is still not a bad deal. Still one thing that qualifies as a very good feature is the LTE Radio on-board. And as we talk of the phone and its not so surprising features let us have look at what it actually has to offer.

Some Disadvantages of Samsung Focus 2 I667:
- No External storage- 8 GB of internal storage appears quite low for a smartphone, an external memory storage option for memory expansion would have been a good idea, but that is always a problem with Windows Phone Mango
- No mass storage mode, again a disadvantage by Windows Mango and not that much from Samsung. Zune is to be used for file management and syncing the data.
- No Bluetooth file transfers.
- No Flash support in the browser which makes the browser pretty dull to use.
- No DivX/XviD video support.
The basic disadvantages that we saw were mainly from the operating system and not that much from Samsung’s hardware. Guess that’s the reason that Samsung still depends on Android for taking its smartphone sales to millions and Samsung does have a great range of Android smartphones rolled up to its sleeves.
