Excerpt: I have been content using a small Samsung Flip phone for over 10 years - same phone. It was basic, simple and fitted neatly in my pocket. Recently, I was given (birthday gift) the Samsung Ativ S™ Neo and I have to say, "WOW!" The features are extraordinary compared to the phone I was using before. I think the big thing is just how quick everything happens and the access it gives. Also, being pre-loaded with Office is a huge bonus, as these are common programmes I use.
Excerpt: I recently switched from an iPhone 4s to the Samsung Ativ S Neo and really feel I made an excellent choice. It came with Windows Phone 8.0, which was quite good, but the upgrade to 8.1 really makes this handset come alive. There are a few downers. The speaker on the back is clear, but quite underpowered and the automatic brightness controls default to dim and medium is almost full brightness. There need to be more steps added.
Excerpt: Love the phone and the windows support. Wish that Samsung would put more time in to supporting the windows phone like they put into supporting the Android models. For those of us tied to MS Office in the work place this phone is the business.
Excerpt: I had an S III since it came out but wanted to move from Android to a Windows phone again. I loved the S3 except it was Android and I felt that this would be a great option. My wife still has an S3 and we wanted replace it also for a WP. The Ativ S Neo is a great phone. So far it has been very stable, great speed, good performance, and nice memory along with Micro SD options. Unfortunately I have several issues: First there is what I consider a volume issue.
