Do it all

The Samsung Ativ S is a high end windows device which packs it all. It has got a superb AMOLED display which offers amazing contrast ratios and colour levels. It goes against the likes of high end Nokia Lumia devices but with a larger display on offer, it might be a better choice for some. You get office suite preinstalled on the device to handle your office documents on the go.

The phone measures at 137.2 x 70.5 x 8.7 mm which is not really small but the device is slim and has been built very well. The phone weighs 135 gms which is not very heavy for its size. It runs a Qualcomm chipset with 1.5 GHz Krait processor. It has an Adreno 225 GPU and 1 GB of RAM. The Windows Phone 8 OS runs like a breeze on this hardware. The storage options are 16 and 32 GB and there is no expandable storage.

It has an 8 megapixel camera which performs really well. It can record videos in full HD. There is a 1.9 megapixel front camera for video calls.

The connectivity options include 3G HSDPA, Wi-Fi, DLNA, GPS with GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and micro USB 2.0. The hardware is powered by a 2300 mAh battery which is good enough to give you a decent talk time and long standby periods.

Verdict

In a category dominated by Nokia Lumia devices, this device tries to find a spot for itself. And in many ways, it betters the high end Lumia phones. Like you get a bigger display as compared to the Lumia 920, which is a good thing. The device looks great and would make a great buy if you need a simple to use premium device.

    Microsoft`s campaign is underway across the board with Windows 8, RT and WP 8 and all eyes are now set on Redmond`s allies for a demonstration of fire power. Following some early warning shots from Nokia and HTC, Samsung are now free to fire at will. Samsung Ativ S official pictures Their Ativ S was the first Windows Phone 8 flagship announced and, respectful of chronology, the first we`re about to properly review.

    Samsung`s ATIV S is a strange kind of Windows Phone device. Not because it does anything wrong, but because it really stands out from the first batch of Windows Phone 8 devices. While Nokia and HTC are trying to come up with most lively and cheerful......
