Samsung Ativ S Neo review: A disappointing Windows phone

CNET
9 November 2013
  • Summary: Though it's an unexceptional smartphone overall, the middle-of-the-road Samsung Ativ S Neo is a safe choice for those who shop by price.
  • Pros: Samsung's Ativ S Neo is an attractive Windows Phone 8 handset with a large screen and more native camera extras than other Windows phones.
  • Cons: The Ativ S Neo is slow, heavy, and has a weak image quality.

Samsung ATIV S Neo review: the best of limited options

7 September 2013
  • Conclusion: If Samsung’s ATIV smartphone line-up were an airplane, it would be a Boeing 737. It gets the job done, but no one’s ever really excited about it. It’s not particularly good-looking, fast, or new. And while it occasionally gets a refresh every now and then, you can’t really tell which variant you’re looking at until you read the pamphlet in the back pouch of the seat in front of you.
  • Pros: some initial confusion, , the ATIV S Neo finally went on sale last week at the , steep price point of $149.99 on a two year contract. Then, presumably after either a clerical error was corrected or a strategy meeting was held, Sprint promptly busted the price of the phone down to $49.99 with a new line of service and a two-year contract. That’s much more in line with what we think this device is worth, but those customers ineligible for this promotion can still pick ...

Samsung ATIV S Neo Review

Phone Arena
29 August 2013
  • Conclusion: With all Windows Phones running nearly identical software and Microsoft employing strict hardware minimums it can be challenging for manufacturers to differentiate their products. Nokia has already chosen to focus on the camera, and HTC is producing their typical top-notch hardware. Samsung’s Android approach has been to include an excess of niche software customizations, but with the less open Windows Phone platform they are not able to do this.
  • Pros: Large 720p display that performs as well as it looks
  • Cons: Poor call quality, Uninspired design, Performance issues at times
