Samsung Focus 2 hands-on
First out of the gate from CTIA 2012 in New Orleans is the Samsung Focus 2. The follow-up to the (wait for it ...) Samsung Focus brings a 4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage and it's rocking a 1.4 GHz processor. And as was confirmed by the official specs earlier today, it's got a 1750 mAh battery.
The Focus 2 actually is a tad heavier than its predecessor, but it's in a slightly smaller form factor. It feels decent enough in the hand. It's definitely got a plastic feel to it, which you'd expect from a Samsung phone. But, indeed, for an entry-level device, you're not going to be ashamed to pull this one out of your pocket. And it's always nice to see a dedicated camera button on the side of a phone.
Other items of note: It'll be available May 20 for $49.99 on contract ($19.99 on upgrade). We've got more pics and hands-on video after the break.

On a more serious note, how were the LTE speeds, if you had LTE over there, that is?
Not trying to be an a$$, but you press the arrow to get the list instead of swipe, or, you don't know immediately where to find the OS build? C'mon guys...

Each site has it's own rivalry against the other but we're all friends here lol
Thanks Phil for the hands on.
ps. Your username and password will work on those sites as well. I had some questions about an android tablet a while back and it came in handy.

At least that's how it works on Tmo. I'm being charged for 4G even though I have the HD7 (3G).
But then again, I'm on a family plan and some of us are using 4G phones.
Are we only going to see MicroSIMs now that they're more on the market now? Or are those only for LTE devices?
