Samsung Focus Smartphone Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Details

Samsung Focus Smartphone Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Details: The Samsung Focus is one of the first Windows Phone 7 smartphones ever released. It was announced more than a year ago on October 2010 and released the following month. Since then, there have been a lot of major changes and developments in Samsung’s lineup of smartphones by releasing the higher-end Samsung Focus S and Samsung Focus Flash, which were released a year after. However, the Samsung Focus remains a good choice for a Windows Phone 7 smartphone.
Design-wise, the Samsung Focus is quite large and bulky compared to recent finds. It is 124.7 x 64.3 x 9.9 mm in dimension and weighs 119.4 g. The design, like many other Samsung Windows phones, is conservative with a hint of sophistication but nonetheless made with a material that is light and plastic. The front is black while the back is shrouded in a striped platinum finish. There is a chrome band that wraps around all edges of the phone.
The Samsung Focus is very slippery and, considering its size, it is a little hard to grip the phone firmly on the palm of the hand. It may also be a little awkward when just using one hand since the balance is not as exact as other smartphones. Although big, the phone will have no problem fitting into a pocket of your pants because of its curved trimmings; however, it might make for quite a large bulge.
The Samsung Focus has a super AMOLED capacitive multitouch-enabled screen with 16 M colors. The resolution of the screen is quite at the lower end at only 480 x 800 pixels and contains approximately 233 pixels per inch density.

Although the Samsung Focus is big in general, most of the bulkiness is attributed to the bevels; the size of the screen is only four inches in diagonal. However, there is relatively no pixilation of the images, probably owing to the compensation from the screen size. There is also no physical keyboard hence typing is done on a virtual board. In addition to the power button and camera button on the right side and volume buttons on the left side, there are only three touch-sensitive buttons situated below the screen – the typical Windows buttons for Back, Home, and Search.
As mentioned earlier, the Samsung Focus runs on a Microsoft Windows Phone 7 operating system. In addition, it also employs Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon as its chipset. It has a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor that may not be high end but is reliably fast. For its graphics processing unit, the phone employs Adreno 200. The phone is allotted an 8 GB worth of internal storage, 512 MB of RAM, and 512 MB of ROM. It also has a microSD card slot that can house up to 32 GB worth of additional memory.
The Samsung Focus has a single 5-Megapixel camera on the back with 2592 x 1944 pixels resolution, autofocus, and LED flash. It can be used for video recording with 720 pixels at 25 frames per second and has geo-tagging, image stabilization, and smile detection functions.
Other features of the Samsung Focus include accelerometer, proximity, and compass sensors. It has WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth v2.1 with ADP for wireless connectivity, and a microUSB v2.0 port. It also has GPS with A-GPS support. There are also plenty of pre-installed applications to boost productivity like a calendar, contacts app, and a suite of Microsoft Office Mobile applications. There is a Now app that integrates the weather, top news stories, and stock updates on each tab.
The Samsung Focus runs on a standard Lithium ion battery (1500 mAh). The battery can support up to 300 hours of standby, and up to 6 hours and 30 minutes of talk time.
