Review Samsung ATIV S Smartphone


A new star in the Windows sky. Samsung offers a direct competitor to the HTC 8X and the Nokia Lumia 920 with the ATIV S; all three devices run Windows Phone 8. Where are the small but subtle differences and can it ascend to the Windows Phone 8 throne?

Good build quality and low weight, HD Super AMOLED Display, Completely smooth operating system, High quality camera, Removable battery, Storage extension via micro SD card, Long battery runtime, The main camera produces very good pictures and can...

Retail price: 549 Euros, Small scope of delivery, The app variety is still small - we are spoiled by the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. The Samsung ATIV S cannot change that

Samsung ATIV S Review


This Samsung ATIV S Review looks at nearly all aspects of this smartphone, including its design, photography, performance and battery life.

The ATIV S features a great build-quality in a lightweight chassis and delivers extensive battery life (including with Location ON) and powerful performance. Unless you are attracted by the state-of-the art camera and the unique minimalist design of...

Samsung ATIV Odyssey (Verizon Wireless) Review


The Samsung ATIV Odyssey runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 quickly and smoothly, but we're less than impressed with its design. In this price range, we prefer the Nokia Lumia 822, which is free on contract as of this review. While the Nokia is slightly...

Snappy performance, Better battery life than other Windows Phones, Clear audio

Generic design, Low-res display, No standout features

An affordable entry-level Windows phone


The Samsung Ativ Odyssey provides an affordable but not thrilling Windows Phone 8 experience.

The Samsung Ativ Odyssey is compact and affordable, and offers the clean Windows Phone 8 UI as well as 4G LTE

The Samsung Ativ Odyssey’s small screen, blah design, and 5MP camera won’t knock your socks off

Samsung Ativ S review


Samsung was the first manufacturer to officially announce a Windows Phone 8 device, but has since been suspiciously quiet about its plans. Plagued by delays and a missed launch period with HTC and Nokia, Samsung's carrier deals, release dates, and...

Lightweight and slim ; Large display ; Physical Windows key

Samsung's additional software ; Speaker is tinny ; Windows Phone app ecosystem

Samsung ATIV S review: the Galaxy S III, repackaged for Windows Phone 8


Samsung was one of the first to join the Windows Phone parade with the Focus, and was quick to follow up with devices like the Focus S. It's been

Expandable storage ; Swappable battery ; Slim, comfortable design ; Solid camera performance

Samsung apps are hit and miss ; WP8 app selection still weak

Samsung has built a quality Windows Phone 8 device that's worthwhile for those who need expandable storage. It's a solid handset, but also the least exciting of the three current WP8 flagships.

Samsung Ativ S review: A fresh start


Microsoft's campaign is underway across the board with Windows 8, RT and WP 8 and all eyes are now set on Redmond's allies for a demonstration of fire power. Following some early warning shots from Nokia and HTC, Samsung are now free to fire at will.

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4.8" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 720 x 1280 pixel resolution ; Scratch resistant Gorilla Glass 2 display ; 8 megapixel autofocus camera...

App catalog falls short of Android and iOS ; Competition has quad-core Krait CPUs already ; Costs more than the Galaxy S III SIM-free ; No system-wide file manager ; No voice-guided navigation ; No music player equalizers ; No lockscreen shortcuts

Samsung ATIV S vs HTC Windows Phone 8X


Microsoft has finally released the first batch of Windows Phone 8 handsets, and since we happen to be in possession of two of those, it seemed only natural to us to make a quick comparison between them. In the blue corner today we have the Samsung...

When it's all said and done, it's extremely difficult to name one of these handsets a definite winner. Like in many other times when we've compared two smartphones, it'll all depend on your personal preferences, but it is exactly here where we come in.

Samsung ATIV S Review


Samsung's ATIV S is a strange kind of Windows Phone device. Not because it does anything wrong, but because it really stands out from the first batch of Windows Phone 8 devices. While Nokia and HTC are trying to come up with most lively and cheerful...

Very large screen ; microSDXC card slot

A bit too big for some users ; Camera and camcorder could be better

There's a lot to love in the ATIV S. It's not the perfect smartphone, but it has a large and eye-catching Super AMOLED screen, as well as decent exterior and stable performance. It may not be particularly pretty, but it sure does stand out from the...
