  1.  Great Phone!


    I moved to this phone from the Galaxy Note 1 (great phone) and i do not regret it. The screen colors on the ATIV S are bright and sharp, the sound from the speaker is great, the design of the handset is perfect and it stands out from the crowd with its silver metal look back and the physical camera button is a nice touch that i think all phones should have. The camera itself is good enough for me but there are better phone cameras out there. You can add a micro SD card which along with the big 4.8 inch screen was a selling point for me as this is currently the only high end Windows Phone with these two features. The battery life on this phone is quite brilliant and i was totally surprised on just how good it is.
    I was with Android for 4 years and although i'm not disappointed with them, it was time for a change.
    WP8 is great software all round. It does feel a bit like Android did 4 years ago in the respect that it's still in its infancy but with good potential. There are a few things they need to sort out, such as, personalizing sms message tones which currently you can only choose from the pre-installed sounds. There is also very few options in the settings menu which may not be a bad thing but after Androids array of options it feels a bit limited. Those thing put aside WP8 is very, very good software and it provides an excellent alternative to Android or iOS.

    All in all this is the best phone i have owned and i am looking forward the small software updates to iron out the niggles. I would defiantly recommend the ATIV S to anyone who wants a awesome phone for web browsing, MP3/Media playing, ebook reading or just good old fashioned phone calls... It is Superb!!

  2.  Huge!


    Great stand but it is huge. The base has an approx 13.5 inch diameter and is about 13.5 inch high. It is quite light so I guess it needs the big base as it is very top heavy with the gun in place. Only 4 stars as it dose fill a little flimsy but it looks superb and will do the job just fine.

  3.  Great


    This is the best phone i have ever owned. It has great features and a brilliant screen. It fits in all my jeans pockets fine and IS NOT to big, heavy or bulky. The battery is super aswell. It can feel a little laggy on the touch screen sometimes but when it gets the ICS update im sure that will change. As with all Android phones, it is almost endlessly customizable. Its great to watch movies on and the speaker is much better than most and are quite loud. The S pen (stylus) fits nice and flush in the phone so even if you never used it, it would not be in the way or get lost as it fits nice and tight. I would defiantly recommend this phone to anyone who wants a awesome phone for web browsing, MP3/Media playing, ebook reading, art designing or just plain old speaking. It is Superb!!

  4.  Cross eyed Obi


    Great bust. Only gripe is that he looks cross eyed!
