Frankly this phone has an impressive hardware and I would have totally gone for it but living in India, it could be a really bad choice. The biggest thing is the US warranty. I cannot take my phone to USA for anything which goes wrong. The phone is amazing but they should bring it to India as well else its useless for us.
Mattson, 18 Sep 2011is it? Me too plan to buy. I have few questions. Do u have any idea about guarantee in India?... morethere is no guarantee... But warranty is US based, hence any issue with the handset will be entertained in US only,..... Mango update is not device specific, hence will work on all windows 7 handset.
Ok then we have to wait for nokia to release window 7 phone with mango update in india and wtf why samsung not release such a great phone with this affordable price 13k (300 $)here.
I have had the Samsung Focus for a few months now, and I think that overall, it is a great phone. I can do almost anything I want to on it. There are a couple things that I don't like, and hope they change soon. I miss my customized ringtones, and the ones that came with the phone are ALL annoying! Another thing s the Marketplace apps. My boyfriend has an Android phone, so his apps are way cooler and mostly free. Any really cool apps I want, I have to pay for. That kinda sucks, but overall, I am very pleased with getting this phone :)
This Phone is an value for Money..
Dont get this if you are looking forward for Customizing your Homescreen etc etc like Android or IOS.
WP7 is still in development stage, so We can expect more stable OS on future build..
Am Running on NoDo, my Mobile is Fine and stable compared to Droid..
Apps and games doesnt look Rich in it. but still as said in development stage..
The Touch resistive buttons on the Bottom, sometime accidentlly Pressed while in Pocket when an SMS or an Miss call comes up.. Dono why they call it as Capacitive touch buttons..
You can see history of an particular number, how min or sec u have talked to it.. ( Love it on BB )
Copy & Paste functions saves the Copied text in Temp for few min only. After that we have to Copy it again.. ( IOS is better in it )
No Eq in Music Player.. But Zune Player is the best compared to IOS and Droid default Player..
Am Still waiting for the Mango update to roll out of Zune..
Will Post more info on this...
Battery may drain Rapidly when u charge it at 60% to 100% or frm 40% something like tat.. U need to drain the battery till 10% or 20% and charge it all the way to 100% to make the Charge hold.. Or else u can see brain drain so fast..

Do u have any idea about guarantee in India?... moreNo warranty is provided by Ebay India. The Ebay specs say "US Warranty". This is misleading as it is not valid in India. There is no 7 day return options as well.
The phone they are selling on Ebay appears to be the unsold Stocks of AT&T USA. Else they can sell such a high spec phone in India at that price.
So buy at your own risk. If u are unlucky then u have to pay from your pocket for repair.
warranty is US based, hence servicing wont be entertained here in India

ordered from e_bay india for rs.12899.00. i read the reviews of the phone, and comparing it's specifications from it's competitors, this phone surely has a better edge from them. can't wait for the phone to be delivered.
