Samsung Ativ S Review: In Depth

Recombu
27 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Whilst Samsung’s rivals have split elements like removable storage and a removable battery between their flagship and secondary Windows Phone 8 devices, Samsung launched its WP8 story with one device aiming to do it all.
  • Pros: Hardware shutter key, Fantastic battery life, Removable storage
  • Cons: Bland design, All-plastic construction, Windows Phone still lacks depth

Review Samsung ATIV S Smartphone

Notebookcheck
22 February 2013
  • Summary: 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?
  • Pros: 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 replace less expensive digital cameras. The temper...
  • Cons: 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.

  • Conclusion: Samsung is no doubt embarking on an odyssey with this venture, which should be a refreshing thing to see for Big Red’s customers. Attached with a very easy-on-the-wallet price point of $49.99 with a 2-year agreement, there’s plenty of things to like about the Samsung ATIV Odyssey – especially when...
  • Pros: Inexpensive price point, Smooth performance, Includes a microSD card slot
  • Cons: Bland design, No noteworthy exclusive apps

theverge.com
21 December 2012
  • Excerpt: 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 exact pricing haven’t been forthcoming.
  • Pros: Lightweight and slim, Large display, Physical Windows key
  • Cons: Samsung's additional software, Speaker is tinny, Windows Phone app ecosystem

  • Summary: The Samsung Ativ S is the thinking man's Windows Phone. Nokia’s mammoth marketing campaign for its Lumia 920 gave the impression that it was the sole Windows 8 Phone handset to own.

25 March 2013
  • Excerpt: If you're convinced that Windows Phone is the right mobile OS for your next smartphone, then the Samsung Ativ S is worth considering.

  • Pros: High-quality HD touchscreen display, Long-lasting battery, Snappy overall performance, Simple, easy-to-use interface
  • Cons: Seemingly lackluster design, Smaller app selection compared with other mobile platforms

Samsung Ativ S review

TechRadar UK
24 December 2012
  • Summary: A lack of 4G holds back an otherwise stellar Windows Phone.
  • Pros: Thin, stylish design, Biggest screen of any Windows Phone 8 device, Strong specs, MicroSD support, The overall build of the Ativ S is great. It may be plastic, but it sure looks like metal, and it has a more mature design than the colorful HTC 8X and HTC 8S . It also doesn't feel cheap like a Lum...
  • Cons: Limited WP8 apps, No 4G, Made of slippery plastic, The lack of 4G is a real bummer. While there are advantages to not having it, better battery life and lower monthly rates come to mind, the Ativ S blows its chance at the being the best WP8 by sticking to 3G. While we have grown to like the WP8 O...

3 September 2013
  • Summary: Ativ S är på många sätt trevlig och kompetent, men den står sig inte riktigt i jämförelse med Nokias konkurrerande modeller. Och varför hänger den sig stup i kvarten?
  • Pros: Skön och behändig form, Office-paket
  • Cons: Hänger sig stup i kvarten, Inte vassaste skärmen
