My biggest problem with the Samsung Focus 2 (besides of course the end-of-life @ WP7.8) is the lack of Micro SD card support. The original Samsung Focus i917 could be upgraded to 70GB storage (8GB NAND + 64GB in user-accessible Micro SD card slot,) with Focus 2 one you're stuck with 8GB. This was the case with all the Mango release wave devices, which used NAND instead of a hidden Micro SD card slot, so if you're buying a lower-end phone, like the Focus Flash, Focus 2, HTC Radar 4G, or Lumia 710, they gave you as little storage as they reasonably could.
If you're looking to spend this much on a Windows Phone 7.8 handset, look at the Samsung Focus S... it has all of the same specs as the Focus 2 except it has a higher-quality RGB-stripe 4.3" Super AMOLED+ screen, 16GB of storage, and 8MP primary camera. There's also the Nokia Lumia 900 which has a few more features, but is kinda fat.

Samsung Focus 2 Unlocked 4G Windows Phone $174.99 + Free shipping
Groupon has the Samsung Focus 2 (Windows) in white fully unlocked for $174.99 and free shipped. I bought this phone from AT&T when it first came out, and it's pretty good!
It's nice to see more smartphone deals on the market.
