Samsung’s flagship Windows Phone 8 Device
The Samsung ATIV S is Samsung’s choice for its flagship Windows Phone 8 device to battle the likes of the Lumia and HTC phones. It copies the design language from the big and mighty Samsung Galaxy S III which has the best ergonomics as a big phone making it much easier to hold in hand. The South-Korean company seems to have put much thought behind the hardware of the Ativ S which has a brushed-aluminum back that feels nice and makes it comfortable to hold. It has a moderately big 4.8 Inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen which gives you enough screen real estate to watch tons of content on your mobile device. The screen is protected by the Corning Glass 2 technology making it much more resistant to scratches. One great thing about this Samsung phone is that it is considerably light and thin when compared to other phones of this size.
The ATIV S uses Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone 8 OS which has all the features you’d want from a modern smartphone OS along with the smooth and cool metro-style design.
The camera in this beauty is an 8MP autofocus one with LED flash which is basically the same one used in the Galaxy S III but we won’t complain as it is still one of the best mobile shooter camera around.
A 1.5 GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon processor runs the ATIV S along with 1 GB of RAM. In plain words, this phone has enough power to handle all your daily phone tasks and also give you some good gaming performance.
Connectivity options for Samsung’s ATIV S include EDGE, GPRS, 3G and Wi-Fi that are common in any good phone. Surfing the internet or having a look at your Facebook Newsfeed is super-easy, especially with Windows Phone’s default Internet Explorer and Facebook apps.
