Review: Samsung Focus Flash for AT&T
The Focus Flash ships with the Internet Explorer 9. It supports pinch-to-zoom, and full HTML as well as mobile web sites. Double-tapping zooms in and out quickly. Web pages for the most part loaded quickly over AT&T's 3G network and looked really good on the Focus Flash's display. It's easy to open new windows/tabs, add favorites, search for items on the page and so on. It is a solid browser.
Windows Phone 7 Mango lets users recolor, rearrange, delete, and otherwise organize how the Live Tiles behave on the home screen. The main menu is stuck in the list view, however. Being able to pin apps, shortcuts, web pages, etc., to the home screen as Live Tiles is a nice touch. Beyond these simple controls, however, the Windows Phone interface remains relatively locked down.
