The Samsung Focus S is a slate smartphone that runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5 (code-named "Mango") operating system. It is the successor to the Samsung Focus, and was released on November 6, 2011 in the United States. Currently, the Focus S is available exclusively through AT&T.[1]

Hardware and Display[edit]

The display is a 4.3-inch, WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) display. Unlike some former models, it uses a standard RGB layout instead of PenTile. The display has a high viewing angle. Below the display are three capacitive buttons for back, Start, and search, as seen on most Windows Phones. Above it is the earpiece, light sensors, and afront-facing camera. The sides of the phone are home to a dual-stage camera key, power/sleep/unlock key (right side), and volume rocker (left side).

Usability[edit]

The Samsung Focus S is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor. Windows Phone 7.5 has fixed some bugs from previous versions. The interface is what Microsoft claims it is.
