AT&T has two awesome Windows Phones available right now - they're both under $100, and both pack 4G LTE capabilities.  The Samsung Focus 2 is available now for $49.99 and offers a 1.4 GHz single-core Snapdragon CPU, 4-inch Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, and a 1,750 mAh battery.  The Nokia Lumia 900 can be had in three colors for $99.99, and sports a 1.4 GHz single-core Snapdragon CPU, 4.3-inch AMOLED display with ClearBlack technology, 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and 720p HD video recording, a 1,830 mAh battery, and a polycarbonate shell.

Is the Focus 2 the best bang for the buck, or should you spring for the Lumia 900?  We'll analyze the situation.  Part 1 of 2.

Renan Gallardo
Renan Gallardo @ Patrick Most likely, they hate it because no matter what specs a new Android device comes with, it's still going to have the same Beta OS... They could throw in all the hardware they want but it's still going to have the same mediocre problems...

Patrick Moyle You Android guys are getting dumber and dumber, I think you're now worse than the isheep...the Lumia is one of the highest rated phones in the planet by those who use it. The people that seem to hate it are the dumb android people who have never used it. Are you really that mad because it is a newer, cleaner, faster, more original os???
