Wth? Thinking people say this? I recently shattered the screen on my Titan and went back to my old dear Focus. Man, it's like coming home. I forgot how amazing this thing feels in your hand. It feels like a luxury item to me.

The 917 definitely doesn't feel like a "luxury" phone, but it does everything better than the 937 except for thinness, weight, screen, form (the Focus doesn't sit flat and the square slab of S just feels better when typing), and overall looks.
That said, if someone wanted to give WP a try without extending their contract and they were on ATT, the original Focus is the one to get.

Samsung makes lightweight plasticky phones. Its what they are known for. They make good devices, beautiful screens, but they care more about weight and cost than touch and feel. That's just how it is. They make Hondas. If you want a Mercedes, you go with Nokia or HTC or an iPhone.

The Focus feels plasticky and cheap but its the Most durable WP out of ALL of the first GEN....
it feels cheap ,but feeling is often wrong or miss leading ;)
honestly my focus has taken more of a beating then any other phone Ive ever had, and doesn't even have a broke pin on it.

I "feel" a lot of nonsense here.
FWIW, I drive a mercedes and an audi, but I chose Samsung kitchen appliances and a Samsung Focus. Samsung also produced the first Windows 8 device, and has the best slate of ultrabooks on the market -which, btw, are not cheap.
I'll put up my robust 36.9-GB-install Samsung against any fancyfeelingonly device out there.
