Review: Samsung Focus 2 for AT&T
Telephony tools on the Focus - as on all Windows Phones - are easy to manage. The phone is just another app accessed from the home screen. The dial-pad itself is one of my favorites on any touch-based phone thanks to the huge software buttons.
The call history, contact search, and People Hub combine to make sure finding people to contact is a cinch. The People Hub, in particular, is a really interesting and rich way to approach the idea of a contact app. The Hub ties together your native contact lists with Facebook and LinkedIn accounts to provide an informative and interactive way to poke through the details of your family, friends, and coworkers.
I particularly like how the People Hub shows you information about those with whom you've recently interacted and their most recent status updates.
