Summary: High quality workmanship, stylish appearance microSD slot Capacious and removable battery Modern operating systems, high-speed operation Low price.The ATIV S is a superb mobile phone, one that you should not regret after purchasing. If you're into the whole experience beyond Windows Phone itself, Nokia's definitely the way forward for the time being.
Summary: It took a little while to get used to my Samsung ATIV Odyssy. Using IE is a little different, but I am getting used to it. Battery life is good. Probably 12-14 hours based on average usage. Takes excellent photos. I was reluctant at first with this phone because I have never used a cell phone unless it had a query keyboard. But I can't believe how well I am doing with this one. If you are a query kind of person, you will have no issues with this keyboard.
Awesome product! Super great value for the money! Highly recommended!

Summary: I've been a windows phone fan since WP7 first came out. I used to have Omnia 7, Lumia 900, Lumia 920 and then Lumia 1520, and this Samsung Ativ S is the highest Cost-Performance phone ever!I loved Lumia series, but AT&T didn't allow some great features to work on other carriers even it's unlocked(such as network sharing, tethering). and btw, you can get this great phone for about $200, what more can you expect?
Summary: I actually got the T899M model, unfortunately it is not on eBay. With the main difference between the I8750 and the T899M is the antennas in which both phones carry. While the I8750 carries network antennas that can get you HSPA+ (4G), the T899M can get you 4G LTE. I added this phone to T-Mobile and is by far the fastest phone I have gotten to date. This phone by far is the best Windows Phone I have had.
Pros: Zippy, excellent screen, great battery life and camera. This phone is perfect in every way assuming you like Windows Phone software, which is rapidly catching up with other operating systems in terms of apps.
Cons: 3G rather than 4G speeds..but honestly the dual core processor makes this faster than my previous 4G Samsung Focus S. Lack of marketing! Nobody knows this model, but are impressed by it's capabilities and price.
Excerpt: My first wp device. This phone is outstanding, best buy. It's very fast, faster than S3. Battery life is great, design is awesome. Overall, I'm very satisfied, but Music+Videos and Multitasking are immature and limited.
Pros: Design, Battery, UI, Speed, Very good camera for daylight photos, Beautiful display, SD card slot, Internet Explorer, Hardware home button
Cons: Bad photos in low-light, Music+Videos needs improvements, Sunlight legibility could be better, Samsung Zone is worse than Nokia Collection, No USB OTG :(, Multitasking is bad
Excerpt: Excellent phone, I'm very satisfied, excellent screen, reacting to every touch, no lag ... I could not wait to take it and now I am very happy now. All recommendations for purchases. I do not know why this phone is in the shadow, but it's good because it is more than reasonable price, and the best ratio of price and quality.
Excerpt: Bought this phone for myself as a replacement for my ageing Lumia 800, I have to say well done Samsung. This phone is fast, powerful and reliable, has already dropped a couple of times and still works perfectly. The camera is exceptionally good. There are some let downs though. The call quality is a bit grainy at high volumes, the apps are limited (but that's not Samsung's fault, that's Microsoft), and accessories are extremely hard to come by.
Pros: The quality, the camera. the music and videos, the display etc.
Cons: Grainy call quality, questionable finish, limited apps and no accessories
