    about people saying the Focus feel cheap ( honestly they all do but w/e ) what im really trying to say is , the SAMSUNG FOCUS as much as it MIGHT feel cheap , its the MOST durable one of them all , the SAMOLED technologies is basically strong as **** ,

    i had the Omnia 2 with just a regular AMOLED and i use to SMASH it against the corner of the table to prove a point to client in my store . so yeah it feels cheap , but it wont break once you drop it off your third story balcony like the other once.

    Just to compare , a guy at work got the iphone 4 his first day he dropped it out of his pocket and Shattered the screen , ive drop my focus and smashed it ( im really bad with phones ) lol and it doesnt Evan have a scratch on it :P lol


    Focus = feels cheap BUT

    - thiner
    - classier
    - STRONGER
    - And the screen looks better evan doh it might not be better

    I don't know who you're trying to convince... Obviously, it doesn't feel cheap to you, but to others it does... you have your reasons and they have theirs. I think everyone is mature enough to make their own decision.

    The Focus doesn't feel cheap to me. I had other reasons to go with the Surround. But I'm sure my reasons won't be good enough for you, because you have different wants and needs from a phone as I do.

    i dont think it does , but alot of people do think it feels cheap,

    im just trying to Point out as much as it MIGHT feel cheap to ANY 1 ,, it still remaines the stronegs phone. ( screen wise ) it just will not break , thats all im trying to say

    and from experiance by going by 10 diffrent touch phoens in the last 2 years 7 of them being HTC ( i work for a cell company so i get alot of phones ) the SAMOLED remains the Stronges ive EVER seen and im supprise how FORGIVEN this technologie is . and by forgiven i mean , u can ABUSE it and put it away wet and it still gona work PERFECT, lol

    this Thread was for does people that want more info , this is a opignion tread and im giving you mine. and also a fact

    I don't think the Surround camera sucks, but the Focus' is definitely better, that is if you can get the right settings in times of not-so-perfect conditions like low/artificial lighting.

    I hurd the camera ont he HTC had more OPTIONS hence making it better ??, i dont see how the focus camera would be better they both take 720P vids and every thing no ??

    maybe u think its better on the focus cause the SAMOLED screen makes it look better lol.

    take a pic with both put it on ur pc and tell me its better.

    I love htc phones all except for one.....the surround it's just stupid with that speaker. I would rather have a focus or any other wp7 than a slide out speaker. I don't care it's made of gold and comes with a miniature giraffe. It's just stupid to make a phone with a slide for a speaker. All slides wear and get loose, and that's ok for a keyboard if you need one, but a speaker no it's dumb.

    You got it backwards. The Focus has more settings than the Surround. The Surround doesn't even have an anti-shake setting.

    Surround camera settings:

    Scenes
    Effects
    Resolutions
    Metering mode
    Flicker adjustment

    I don't think I've taken a single blurry pic with the Surround yet. I've taken dozens of blurry pics with the Focus. But after playing around with it's (Focus) settings I eventually get a good pic. And you're probably right about the Focus pics looking better because of the SAMOLED screen. But you can't make a blurry pic look good, no matter what screen you got. LOL unless of course that's what you were going for... hahaha.

    I agree samsung makes a plasticky device. Htc is pure quality hand down. The screen on amazing devices are pretty awesome though. I'm giving the htc surround the codename "radio Raheem"

    The one thing i don’t understand is how people claim that HTC make better quality devices, i dont understand that statement AT ALL ,

    ive had 6 HTC phones ( 5 windows, 1 droid ) and to be honest with you . i loved HTC for the SENS they had on WM , but aside from that , what’s better??? i can admit its DIFRENT , but better?)??

    id rather go with a company and call them better if they innovate USEFULL things like SCREENS! **cough*** Samsung SAMOLED * cough**

    and the HOLE plastic thing .. ** HTC surround Cough** is also plastic ** cough**LIKE 99% of the phone on the market.
    hahaha not because they pint it a metal colour that it makes it so.

    In the end its ALL the same BULL SH**T , we should be fighting the Iphone/BB/android lovers >> NOT OUR OWN KIND!!!! >>

    Wp7.. FTW!!! Let’s go spam he apple forums!!!! lol ;)

    In the end if it was up to me and not my wallet I think id by them both , but having a family has its priorities.

    The Focus is made of plastic but feels very solid
    It reminds me a lot of the ATT Pure, an HTC device. Samsung's been making solid phones for a while, but it wasn't until their Galaxy S phones, particularly the Captivate, that I really thought about owning one.
