Samsung Ativ S review

 

A lack of 4G holds back an otherwise stellar Windows Phone.

Thin, stylish design ; Biggest screen of any Windows Phone 8 device ; Strong specs ; MicroSD support

Limited WP8 apps ; No 4G ; Made of slippery plastic

Producing powerful and balanced devices like the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, Samsung is a force to be reckoned with in the Android smartphone market. Not one to be rushed, the Korean manufacturer has taken its sweet time producing a Windows Phone 8...

Samsung ATIV S pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

The Samsung ATIV S, or ATIV Odyssey on Verizon, is the third Windows Phone 8 device in the family and the one that is likely to get little of the spotlight

Samsung Ativ S Hands On

 

Hands On: The Samsung Ativ S is Samsung's new flagship Windows Phone 8 handset.

We'll be back with more thoughts on the Samsung Ativ S when we get a sample in for review but for now it looks like Samsung has achieved what it did with the Samsung Galaxy S3: it's a phone that packs in all the latest specs but lacks that desirability...

Samsung ATIV S preview

 

Nokia is seemingly the only smartphone manufacturer interested in selling and marketing Windows Phone devices as of yet, but that may change with the expected release of Windows Phone 8 in late October. One of the first smartphones to run Microsoft's...

The Samsung ATIV S will be one of the first smartphones to run Microsoft's new mobile OS, Windows Phone 8. It features a large 4.8in super AMOLED HD screen, has an 8-megapixel camera and boasts an aluminium chassis.

Samsung Ativ S - Initial Impressions

 

There is always one late comer to every party. ?In this case, Samsung announced the Windows Phone 8 touting Ativ S back in August of 2012 but didn't actually manage to release it until December, almost a whole month after [...

One inclusion is Samsung’s Now app which places a live tile on your homescreen giving weather, news, share prices, currency exchange rates and top tweets. Its a great addition giving a good summary of all your top rated information.

Samsung Ativ S

 

It's half a year behind, but with the Samsung Ativ S, the South Korean giant has finally come up with a Windows Phone version of its smash hit Galaxy S3 phone. Like its Android powered brother, it sports a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display, and runs on...

The Samsung Ativ S doesn’t push the boat out when it comes to build like the Nokia Lumia 920, but its big, gorgeous display and light weight make it the most comfortable of the top notch Windows Phone 8 blowers so far. Sadly, Samsung’s phoned in the...

Samsung Ativ S hands-on review

 

The INQUIRER gets its mitts on Samsung's first Windows Phone 8 handset

Though our opening impressions of the Ativ S are positive, with it featuring many of the strengths that made the Galaxy S3 great, we're still unsure of its chances.
