imageIn the market for a new Windows Phone from AT&T running Mango? Curious to see what everyone thinks of the lineup. To remind you, here’s the contestants so far:

Samsung Focus S

The Samsung Focus™ S builds on the success of the award-winning and highest-selling Windows Phone in the U.S., the Samsung Focus™. Featuring a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.4 GHz processor, 4G-capable speeds and a thin profile at 8.55 millimeters. It includes front facing 1.3-megapixel and a rear facing 8-megapixel cameras. The Samsung Focus S will find its way into a lot of pockets this fall.


Debuting as the largest screen in AT&T’s smartphone portfolio at 4.7 inches, HTC TITAN™ fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. Watch video from AT&T U-Verse Mobile or play Xbox LIVE® games on the largest screen yet for a Windows Phone. Running a 1.5 GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, HTC TITAN will feed the senses.

Samsung Focus Flash

Designed to hit the market packed with value, Samsung Focus™ Flash’s 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen will both fit in pockets and be light on pocketbooks with the full power of Windows Phone 7.5 inside. As fast and lightweight as it is compact, it runs a 1.4 GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera plus front facing camera.

Now I don’t want to hear about those of you who have no intentions of buying a Windows Phone. I’m more curious about what phone those of you who are interested in Windows Phones would be looking to buy. In other words, trolls just hold yourselves for once. So do you like the massive HTC Titan? The AMOLED on the Focus S that’s super thin and a great upgrade to the best selling Windows Phone or looing to save a buck with a still well spec’ed Focus Flash? Vote below and share in the comments:

[poll id=”122″]


  1. I’m thinking of going big this time around. Last year I opted for the HTC Surround and i’m ready to upgrade just for the giggles. I prefer HTC’s build quality to Samsung so leaning towards the Titan. It’ll definitely be a conversation starter.

  2. I love the amoled screen on the focus so will probably stick with sammy, unless the Titan looks amazing then I may have to try.

  3. Got a chance to touch the Samsung Focus S… felt solid and it has a BIG screen. Based on this I’m guessing the Titan will feel like it has a HUGE screen.

    FWIW, my current Samsung Focus is a great device but I really want longer battery life. So for me, assuming build quality is similar, it will probably come down to battery life between the Focus S and Titan. I might even consider the HTC Radar since some are saying it has amazing battery life.

  4. @John: The thing that scares me about the titan is HTC has a tendency for issues on their larger screens. The sheer size puts it into the conversation though.

  5. The camera is awesome on the Titan with a 2.2 f/stop. I’m imagining the bokeh from a cell phone pic but then again 2.2 is not enough in the photog world. I will vote for HTC because they are built so well but these specs are not enough.

    4G is a must and if Verizon/Moto can have dual core then so should AT&T. I’m hoping Nokia creates an upper end device with a Ziess lens camera. Till then I’m super happy with my Surround and my HD2 for my flashing addiction fix.

  6. You need to add, “None of the above” to the poll. While I like HTC devices, 4.7″ is way too big and I won’t buy anything less than 3.8″. Content with my Surround for now, but will be interested to see what Nokia has in store for Q1-2012. Meh on a FFC, but more internal memory, better battery life and a faster processor are always welcome.

  7. @Jim Szymanski: I think the FFC is important and with Microsoft/Skype it will be a required spec. The RFC is even more important, back in the Fuze days I thought why even have a camera. Now I use my camera to communicate just about everyday, but I find myself frustrated when I have to dig out a point and shoot for better clarity.

  8. @Stan City: The HD7 and several Android big screens had light leakage issues.

    I was considering the Radar since it is a worthy upgrade but not on AT&T.

    Buying this fall and if Nokia brings something fantastic next spring I’ll sell my phone and buy a Nokia off contract.

  9. @Stan City: It has yet to be proven that the Dual-core Android phones provide a snappier UI experience than single core phones especially iPhone and Windows Phones. LTE is still vapor ware for most people too so not until at least another year should LTE even be in the important category.

  10. 4.7″ is way too big for a phone! I wish they were replacing the Focus with a new 4.0″. It’s just the right size. Given no better options, I’ll likely have to deal with the enormous 4.3″ on the Samsung Focus S.

  11. My first HTC, 8125, was great, still works. My second HTC, 8925 Tilt, died when the touch screen became unresponsive, retired before its time. My friends HTC HD2, touch screen became unresponsive, also retired before its time.
    I like HTCs styling, but…
    Didn’t like the Samsung screen up close, but that was not the newest tech.
    I am looking for a pocket tablet experience, more like the Dell Streak 5″ I am currently using.
    I have atleast 5 to 6 months before I upgrade. What else is coming for WP 7.5?
    Happy Hunting. Peace

  12. @JR: JR, by the time you upgrade Nokia will have unveiled their Windows Phones plus going forward there will be steady releases of Windows Phones so in 6 months you should see at least 3 or 4 more phone models to choose from.

  13. Yea, that is what I was hoping for.
    I want to go play with a WP7 some more before the next update, just to get a better perspective.
    I still have my 3rd Nokia phone(3650). It was my first “smartphone” and got me hooked. Maybe Nokia will come through for me.
    I have an advantage cause I am not highly motivated to buy right now. Got lots of time to wait and do research, listen to what you all have to say, and try it out for myself.
    I kinda feel bad for fanboys that have to have just because. Well, I don’t feel that bad.
    If I had to buy one of those 3 today, I would choose the Titan. Big phones don’t stay big, you will get used to it fast and wonder how you ever got along without it.

  14. @Murani Lewis: I live in a big market area, so 4G is important but Samsung is giving us that option. Yes, Verizon’s Data network is a joke, I laugh at friends as my Surround opens everything much faster on AT&T’s 3G. In this world Advertising rules as people still think their network is better because it says LTE when it should say LOL.

  15. @Stan City: Well, LTE is important in the long-run, as we’ll eventually need it to reach the low-latencies that HSPA+ cannot deliver. But I find it more laughable that advertising has convinced people who live in large cities that Verizon is a better option. Chances are, unless you live in a county with a population under 30,000, you are covered by AT&T 3G. And even AT&T’s HSPA (without HSPA+) is faster than Verizon EV-DO. But marketing has convinced people that Verizon has coverage that they need, and the honest truth is that if you live in just about any size city, AT&T covers you just fine and offers faster speeds and simultaneous voice and data.

  16. I gave up on HTC super lcd I 4.7 super amoled screen.. Or Nokia… If it doesn’t come out im staying out of the sun with my hd7…

  17. Going to be a tough choice between the Focus S and the Titan.

    BIG screen vs a surely beautiful screen. If the Titan doesn’t come with a kickstand, though, then that giant is going to fall to the Focus S for me. Who wants to carry around a dock? These are mobile devices.

  18. @Stan City: Won’t go out of my way to avoid an FFC, but for me it will more of a novelty, so not a criteria for upgrading. An RFC is another story. Have had one for the past 10+ years and couldn’t live without it. But I will never expect my phone to replace a good point and shoot.

  19. I’m waiting for Nokia to bring out phones , but if I was buying now it would b focus s most likely, I love my focus!! Would consider titan too, I love big screens

  20. Either the Titan or the Focus S. I’ll have to wait to see the Focus S. It hasn’t even be shown or officially announced, which is weird and lame. I’d like to wait for Nokia, but it doesn’t look like they’ll have anything compelling this year, and it’s doubtful anything they do release will make it to the states. The Sea Ray is a great design, but it’s specs(aside from FFC), are not better than first generation phones.

  21. None of the above. I still cannot part with a qwerty keyboard, so waiting to see what Nokia comes out with. Stuck with the “tiny” 3.5 inch screen on my sturdy LG Quantum (same size as iphone 4).
