An affordable entry-level Windows phone

CNET
19 April 2013
  • Summary: The Samsung Ativ Odyssey provides an affordable but not thrilling Windows Phone 8 experience.
  • Pros: The Samsung Ativ Odyssey is compact and affordable, and offers the clean Windows Phone 8 UI as well as 4G LTE.
  • Cons: The Samsung Ativ Odyssey’s small screen, blah design, and 5MP camera won’t knock your socks off.

  • Summary: The Odyssey is a good illustration of what your money buys you in a new Windows Phone. As we’ve seen, it’s not so much performance — Windows Phone 8 does just as well with inexpensive hardware as it does with the premium goods — but fit and finish, build quality, and the quality of the phone’s display. For a little bit more money than the Odyssey, you can get the Windows Phone 8X, which has a much nicer display, better camera, and much nicer hardware.
  • Pros: Zippy performance, Good battery life, Fast data
  • Cons: Cheap feel, Ugly appearance, Low-resolution, cramped display

Samsung ATIV Odyssey

MobileTechReview.com
16 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The Samsung ATIV Odyssey is the manufacturer's first US Windows Phone 8 smartphone. Available on Verizon Wireless for $49 with contract, Samsung obviously wasn't shooting for a flagship device, and they've yet to bring the higher end ATIV S (equivalent to the Samsung Galaxy S III in terms of hardware) to the US. The ATIV Odyssey is akin to the Galaxy S III Mini and it has a colorful 4" Super AMOLED display running at 800 x 480 in a very compact form.
  • Pros: Compact design, fast and fluid experience.
  • Cons: Features and specs don't wow us for the price vs. the Windows Phone 8 competition.

Samsung ATIV Odyssey (Verizon Wireless) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
4 February 2013
  • Summary: 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 larger, you get more color options and free turn-by-turn directions via Nokia Drive. If you're willing to spend a bit more, the $99 HTC Windows Phone 8X has a sharper 720p display, a sleeker design and wireless charging.

Samsung Ativ S

Airgamer
18 March 2013
  • Summary: Tatsächlich entspricht Design und Format ziemlich dem ehemaligen Topmodell Galaxy S3. Bei der Farbwahl handelt es sich um eine graue Eminenz, wobei insbesondere die matte Rückseite Aluminium vorgaukelt. Echtes Metall findet man allerdings wie schon beim Galaxy S3 nicht vor. Dafür ist das Smartphone trotz des 4,8 Zoll großen Displays angenehm flach und relativ leicht.
  • Pros: Hochwertige Verarbeitung, Farbsattes OLED-Display, Gute Rufbereitschaft
  • Cons: Reiner Plastikbomber, Keine optimale App-Unterstützung, Reine Tageslichtkamera
