Pros - Sleek, lightweight and slim
- Large, very responsive touchscreen
- Excellent screen response, bright display
- V. long battery life, fast performance
- Great camera, front and back
Cons - Limited apps with Windows Phone 7.5 (can upgrade to 7.8)
- Difficult to insert SIM
- Occasionally the battery "disconnects" and can run out fast. By taking it out and reinserting this is fixed instantly though.
Summary I'm not a reviewer who just purchased this device and is at the newly-in-love stage. I've owned the Focus S for over a year and I have absolutely NO reason to get an upgrade. It's an extremely dependable and attractive phone. I have a slim hard rubber case to protect the back, and I don't get the impression of "flimsy" - in fact I've dropped it many times and had no problems. It's screen is larger than the iPhone 5S, and even more responsive when I compared it. It's simple to use, and it looks like a newly released smartphone. What can I say? I won't be needing another phone for years, and I just wish this one had been more publicised!
Pros fast processor
fits easily into your pocket.
Cons too thin, feels fragile.
Summary I would highly recommend this phone. It is the best Windows Phone yet.

"Awesome Phone!"on by fullbore4321
Pros Forget what is being said about being fragile, phone takes a beating. Fast and smooth, makes the droids and iphones really feel dated. Lack of apps? who really has 500,000 loaded on there phone. It the best phone I have used
Cons the camera button does get pushed by accident at times
Summary The best phone out there.
Pros Beautiful Screen, LONG battery life, crystal clear call quality
Cons Very light
Summary This phone makes me smile every time I use it. The Windows Phone OS is beautifully designed and totally intuitive. It is the only mobile OS that enhances the experience and usability of the phone, rather than being an obstacle.
I used to hate touch screen keyboards, but this is the best I have used by far, and I am not really missing my Blackberry keyboard anymore. The screen itself is big and bright, with amazing contrast. The camera is very good, and having the dedicated camera button actually makes it useful as a point-and-shoot.
I was initially torn between the Focus S and the Titan, because I prefer the heavier duty aluminum build of the Titan. But the Titan's call quality sounded muffled and border-line unintelligible, while the Focus S is crystal clear. I use the phone for business calls, so this was the deciding factor for me.
Also, while the tech reviewers always criticize Windows Phone for the supposed dearth of apps, I find the selection to be very good. All of the important stuff is there, and a lot of it is baked right into the OS, and works better than the dedicated apps, right out of the box.
