    From the Focus to the Titan and now back to Samsung with the Focus S.

    I have yet to see the device have less than full strength (reception) since it has been activated.

    I'm downloading Bandwidth as I type to test the speeds out and see if there are any differences.

    I'll probably miss the screen size, but happy I made the switch a day before my 30 days.

    And hmmm... wonder if that means 2 app cards :)

    It's so odd that European Titans seem to be fine, but U.S. Titans seem to have issues. I wonder if it's from some of the software that AT&T installs.

    My brother hasn't had any problems with his Titan. What problems exactly are people having?

    I think a majority of the issues are pretty much HTC. That's 80% of the traffic at my job. Screens, charging ports, power cycling, etc.

    I've never had any issues with Samsung.

    It is... because they make some sexii looking devices. The Nexus One is one of my favorite devices, aesthetically.

    Me too, I went from focus s to titan, and now I have both. I'll probably try to sell the titan on eBay. I really think wp7 was made for samoled screens.

    The screen on the Focus S seems to pop on the screen. I do miss the larger screen, but the portability of the S makes up for it along with the SAMOLED+ screen.

    I agree, duvi. Focus S is effortless to use. Titan screen was awesome...appreciated it while I had it, but for use as a smartphone is intended, Focus S rocks.

    I did the same thing, and am back to the Focus S. I think the Focus S is an awesome phone, love how lightweight it is, and the screen is amazing. The Titan seemed to have several issues. After having an iphone 4 for a year, I must say I enjoy WP7 OS much more than ios.

    I love it, however, I may see my first concern with the Focus S... battery life when it comes to stand by time. I woke up and my device was almost dead, after coming off being fully charged.

    Hmm, different strokes for different folks I guess. Have used HTC devices exclusively the past 9 years (8 devices I think) between PocketPC/WinMo/WP and never had a hardware issue. Haven't tried the Titan out though. Sorry, but Samsung support (or lack thereof) scares me.

    I understand. Samsung makes fantastic devices, usually top performers. But they really have a poor history of supporting them in the field. It may come from the sheer number of different phones they sell worldwide. But still, it is a rep I am very leery of. I spent several hours in an AT&T store kicking around both the Titan and the Focus S, and really wanted to like the HTC monster more. Part of it was the fact that HTC supports their equipment. I just couldn't ignore the performance of the Focus S. It won me over.

    If I had gone Android, I doubt I would have taken a Samsung over a HTC. I probably would have taken a Motorola over a Samsung, truthfully. I expect HTC to truly support the Titan and it's other WP selections, even 1st Gen ones like your surround. I will just keep my fingers crossed for my "S".

    I haven't had any problems either on At&t.

    I'll never buy another Samsung again... Enjoy your Focus S Duvi. It's obviously a good phone. I'm just too mad about my experience with my Focus r1.4 which I think is under my couch somewhere still without Mango...

    Yikes! Did you resolve this - or still a concern? Man, I wanted to REALLY love Windows phones. I was never going to use anything else. Eating my words with some crow on top, I am loving iPhone 4s. Even bought iPad. There is something to be said for a limited number of devices, extremely well-supported. With the same model iPhone, you always have what everyone else has got - only what, 5 devices to deal with, total. Original iPhone is obsolete - parts hard to come by (I know someone who used one up until 4S came out) - but it has gotten every update since the beginning (I am pretty sure>>>). After my adventures with windows phones, I will take the reliability. Darn thing just works, and screen looks pretty great, even at 3.5 in, and speeds are better than anything I got on a windows device.

    Did I see you over on iMore forums one day? 4s or iPad?

    Yes... got it resolved -- a battery app!

    Yes you have seen me, every where. WPC, CB, iMore (got both new devices) and even A.C., although I don't care for Android any more. I have all the latest devices for each, but WP is the freshest and IMO has the potential to over take Android, IMO.

    Like him I am a new iPad toten 4S using (and liking) kind of guy.

    Although I miss WP for the:
    Ease of using contacts to communicate
    The keyboard
    Email is much better

    I will probably get the 900 to see what the buzz is all about and go double secret agent.
