Samsung Focus 2 FrontConclusion

The Samsung Focus 2 is definitely a solid phone, one that offers performance a small step above what you would expect for $50. It’s certainly a good deal for an entry-level phone (with the not-so-entry-level luxury of 4G LTE), but bearing that in mind, if you’re willing to shell out another $50 you can get your hands on the flagship Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 900. The Lumia 900 is not without its flaws — its awful camera springs to mind pretty quickly — but for another $50, you can get a much, much better-quality screen, better battery life, more storage, and, depending on whether or not it’s your thing, a more unique and larger build.

But if you’re really just looking for the cheapest way to get your hands on a Mango-based smartphone, the Focus 2 is probably your best bet. The Lumia 710 is a close contender, also being an extremely affordable phone with 4G, but the Focus is more powerful under the hood and is connected to a better network, with 4G that is LTE, as opposed to HSPA+. Despite it being a phone that generally eschews premium, top-of-the line features in favor of a more appealing price tag, the Focus 2 will still serve you well, even if it doesn’t blow you away.
