Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Just curious. I'm going to be heading over there soon.
Yeah, any good? I registered for the SF event next week.

I wanted to go to the LA event but I was busy.
Oh... and probably the coolest thing was just being able to put the phones side by side and compare them. All of them fully powered with profiles on them so you could see the full functionality. A lot of people there didn't even have Windows Phones. So they really were there because they wanted to get one, but weren't sure which to pick.
I was a little disappointed with both the Focus S and the Focus Flash. Not because they're bad. They both looked like nice devices. But the Focus S looked almost exactly like my Focus. Sure, it's a little bigger. But unless it's side by side, I wouldn't know. The device is still nice. So if you're moving from a Focus to a Focus S, you don't really get as much of a feeling of "Wow. I have something new and different." It just seems like somehow you added mods to your current phone.
The thing that I didn't like about the Focus Flash was the hardware button for the home screen. It just didn't seem to fit because the Back and Search buttons were still capacitive. I felt like they should have made up their minds to go with one or the other. Not mix them up.
I compared the screens of the Focus Flash, Focus S, Titan, and Radar. The Radar's screen quality pales in comparison to the others. I was pretty surprised. Both Focuses looked the same in screen quality. I would say that the Titan equaled the Focus quality. But it was different. The Focuses were more vivid. The colors more saturated. Almost like it had some extra style and pizzazz. Almost a little more hip. The Titan was crisp and clear. The colors were accurate. So it really depends on personal preference. Both looked good.
Just posting a wee video from the WP LA night.

They sure look entertaining.
