Review: Samsung Focus S for AT&T
Press the Phone app -- which is found only on the home screen -- and the call history is the first thing you'll see. There are icons at the bottom that open the dialer, the People Hub or voicemail.
After a call has connected, a small pull-down menu lets you do most of the expected things, such as add a call, put a call on hold or mute, or activate the speakerphone.

The People Hub is an essential part of the WP7 Mango experience. With Mango, Microsoft has fully integrated the contact application with Facebook, Twitter, and Linked In.
The main view is a huge list of all your contacts. Your most recent Facebook status appears at the top. There are two little buttons that, when pressed, allow you to search through your contacts or add a new one. The fastest way to search for contacts is to open the People Hub.
Swipe the entire page to the left, and you see the "What's New" column. This is a list of the most recent status updates from your contacts. It's neat way to interact with contacts.
Each contact page holds plenty of information, including email addresses, numbers, street addresses, birthdays, web sites, and so on. Making calls or sending emails directly from the People Hub is easy.
