    Honestly, don't see much of a reason to upgrade from a regular Focus. I guess the bigger screen helps.

    I've learned that Capacitive buttons are really annoying, hopefully Nokia comes out with a phone with hardware keys

    i can give you 6 reasons to upgrade....

    - S-amoled PLUS ( and not just a S-amoled)
    - FFC ( all the people saying they wanted that useless junk better not complain )
    - Better and bigger processors (1400 MHz)
    - Bigger screen by .3''
    - 8MP camera replacing the 5MP ( so many people complaining about the cameras)
    - Accelerometer.....


    I actually like the *Captive buttons on the FOCUS* compare to he actual BIG ugly Sloppy buttons on the LG Optimums... *yack*
    Id rather have captive then buttons that get sticky if your kid touches your phone once….with his sticky fingers.. lol

    all u have to do is, NOT touch the captive buttons when in a app or learn to hold your phone properly and you`ll be fine :)

    I have no interest in a device any bigger than the current Focus --but, one of the three factors that sold me on the Focus was the industry-leading low SAR ratings of .55 and .75. I know that most don't care about this, but has anyone seen whether Samsung has been able to maintain the low ratings on the new phone(s)? Thanks.

    Personally the only thing that would matter would be the slightly bigger screen and the better display. But honestly for me not that big of a difference than my regular Focus.

    I also think physical buttons can be done well. Anyway I'll be waiting on Nokia's announcement. I could easily see myself using my Focus for another year if need be. It's that great of a phone.

    well i could see my self Upgrading tot he FOCUS S .... BUT i would never DOWNGRADE to the OMNIA W lol (booo) i know actual button can be done right .. but the sexy button less captive is just so much more appealing to the eye. (for me any ways :P )

    im surprise at the Omnia W ... its exactly like the FOCUS ... but with a smaller screen...

    you wanted it , you bagged for it and you guys got it!!! they are officially flooding the market with crappy phones like android/google are doing.. LOL ;)

    im not sure one semi crappy phone constitutes "flooding the market". ofcourse, the focus is free now with a 2 year contract.

    I'm not at all surprised by the Ominia W. It makes perfect sense to me because it will probably do well in lower income areas and markets in developing countries where a more expensive handset would have minimal penetration. Samsung is in business to try and sell phones to everyone, not just us spoiled American consumers. ;)

    Windows Phone was always planning for there to be low end phones and mid range phones and high end phones. The W is a mid range phone the Nokias will be all three windows phone wont gain market traction quickly by putting out high end phones only in the aftermath of a world wide financial crisis that is still going on in Europe and which if it continues will drag all economies down.

    If hyout want a lowere end phone in the midlle or bottom dont buy it but please dongt put down WP for wanting to get more inexpensive out gain more converts not everybody wants to cough up higher prices even with a two year contract when some phones with really decent features can be had for free or less than half what the high end phones are priced!

    Well said. I definitely fall into that category you referred to in the last sentence, which is why I'm perfectly content with last year's Focus for the time being.

    Let's not forget that our highest COST factor is what we shell out each month for the servicing of our maybe-not-so "smart" phones.

    For the price and compared to the specs of other operating systems, but against other windows phone devices, it's high end.

    I wasnt trying to infer or imply that you were bashing WP I was just trying to state the case for a broad spectrum approach for market penetration and traction and getting the ecosystem blooming!
    Didn't mean to (if I did) stomp a bit on your toes!
