Samsung Focus 2 now on sale; HTC Titan II gets price cut

AT&T has been by far the biggest supporter of Windows Phone products in the US. It currently has a number of Windows Phone devices on sale, including of course the Nokia Lumia 900. Today, the newest member of the Windows Phone family went on sale at AT&T, the Samsung Focus 2.

First announced earlier in May, the white colored Focus 2 has a four inch Super-AMOLED screen, a 1.4 GHz single core processor, a five megapixel rear facing camera and a front facing VGA camera. It has support for up to eight GB of internal storage and an 1750 mAh battery. It can connect to AT&T's regular 3G network or its growing 4G LTE network.

Pricing for the Samsung Focus 2 is $49.99 with a new two year contract; if you are upgrading from a previous phone the Focus 2 is just $19.99 with a new two year contract. Without a contract, the price is $399.99

In related news, WPCentral.com went to a local AT&T store and saw that the HTC Titan 2, launched in April at the same time as the Lumia 900, has gotten a price cut to $149.99 with a new two year contract, down from its launch price of $199.99. Currently, this new price is not reflected on AT&T's website.

I have the Samsung Focus. I don't think the design is great but it is definitely good. As far as quality the phone has lasted well for me. I do not use a cover or screen protector and there are no scratches on the screen and the phone has not broken. I have dropped it plenty of times and even throw it at the floor to prove to people how tough the phone is. A guy I work with threw his phone against a brick wall when he was mad and nothing happened to the phone other than the cover and battery fell off. I think the phone has good quality.

@ ~Johnny - Hasn't the Samsung Galaxy III had like 9m pre-orders globally excluding US, they must be doing something right?

And it's still got a cheap, uninspired finish They do plenty other things right, like great cameras, great screens, great battery life and great prices. But they certainly cheap out in their finish.

I think Samsung are waiting till Windows Phone 8, more customization for them. To be honest I think they hate anything they can't slap their Touchwizz UI on.

this is just an ugly phone. at best he looks pretty outdated.

i think samsung, dont really care if WP, to look boring\lack of style.

pretty sure quality build is not top notch.

only nokia and sony give WP stunning designs.

You say that as if it's only their WP phones that looking boring and ugly, I disagree

Isn't this true of most Samsung phones regardless of OS? They tend to have very cheap, uninspiring finishes.

sorry about it.

Those are attractive mockups from a random poster. They are very unlikely to ever appear though, particularly because the Live Tiles have rounded borders, and they are not high contrast.

I otherwise agree though. Samsung has moved past making attractive phones, just as they have moved away from quality in general. They're all about squeezing out profit margins at the expense of quality.

Ever since I had to return three (3!) Samsung Focus' for terrible quality control issues, and my incredibly cheap feeling Samsung Focus S, I am firmly in the Nokia and possibly HTC (the Titan II is very nice) camps.
