As I mentioned in the opening of this article, we give Samsung flak. They deserve it to some degree, but the ATIV S is a good smartphone. Actually, scratch that. It's a beautiful Windows Phone. But I stand by what's in the title - it could (and should)...

With this review unit it becomes evident once more that Samsung knows its business and sold the most smartphones in 2012 not without reason. After the success of the Galaxy Note it was clear which strategy the South Korean company pursued - unrivaled...

Very Good) Design-wise, the Samsung ATIV S looks like a smaller version of the Galaxy Note 2 with Windows Phone 8 inside. Samsung designed a few elements slightly differently, probably to differentiate the ATIV S from its larger Android-powered...

There is always one late comer to every party. In this case, Samsung announced the Windows Phone 8 touting Ativ S back in August of 2012 but didn’t actually manage to release it until December, almost a whole month after the Nokia Lumia 920. Still as...

The Samsung ATIV S is a good phone. It's an appropriate device to sum up the year; its consummate performance, build quality and design feel very much a product of 2012, whereas the Lumia 920 and Windows Phone 8X embody forward-facing designs and next-year technology. Available on Rogers, TELUS and Bell, the ATIV S isn't quite what it should have been, but maintains Samsung's position as a competitive and reliable smartphone...

There's a lot to love in the ATIV S. It's not the perfect smartphone, but it has a large and eye-catching Super AMOLED screen, as well as decent exterior and stable performance. It may not be particularly pretty, but it sure does stand out from the...
