Summary: Bought this for my husband for his birthday earlier this month along with a protective case. He loved the phone until 2 weeks later when he dropped it on the floor and it shattered everywhere beyond repair. Yes, it was in the recommended protective case.
Excerpt: After having my ATIV S Neo for about a month, the phone just randomly shut itself off and would never turn back on again. Until this happened I was really enjoying the phone. The screen alone was larger than an iPhone...and I mean the whole iPhone, not just the screen.

Summary: The Samsung Neo has a legacy LCD screen instead of an AMOLED screen, LCD's use more power, are fragile, and look worse compared to AMOLED's. Even a video on Samsung's website points out the superiority of AMOLED over TFT LCD.
