I just picked up the Focus this weekend after my girlfriend sent my iPhone 3g for a swim while it was charging, frying it and the SIM.
It was a toss-up between the iPhone 4 and the Focus, and while I'm familiar with the iPhone, I wanted to try something different (and getting an additional $50 off helped too).
After a few days of having it, I love it. The screen is amazing, the UI is sleek and smooth, and I've always preferred the Zune interface to the iPod's. Also, I have yet to drop a single call, or even lose coverage in the same spots where my iPhone failed me constantly.
1) Charging is a pain. Via USB it isn't feasible, is it barely outputs enough to keep up with the phone's consumption. So the only real way to charge is from the wall or the car charger. On the plus side, you can sync the phone wirelessly, so long as you have your PC on a wifi network. After 10 minutes plugged into the wall, the phone connects with the Zune software to sync. This feature is pretty snazzy.
2) Lack of apps. Some of my favorite apps from the iPhone are not available. Seeing as the phone has only been out a few weeks, I'm certain this will change in the near future, for the most part.
3) Custom ringtones. The selection of ringtones on the phone is pretty large, but they're all rather generic. But from I've read, as well as what is posted above, the update in January will tackle this, along with many other issues.
There are a few other little annoyances, but nothing I can't adjust to.
