We are left with the exact same feelings towards the Samsung Ativ Odyssey as we had towards the last year's Samsung Focus 2 for AT&T. The handset looks hastily designed and executed in order to be able to play along with its rivals without grabbing...

Sponsored links, if any, appear in green. One could easily make a joke about how fitting it is that a Window Phone 8 device known as the ATIV Odyssey arrived weeks later than it was scheduled. While Samsung's first Windows Phone 8 smartphone on...

The Ativ Odyssey itself is middle-of-the-road. It looks like a smaller, cookie-cutter version of the Galaxy S3, very similar to the Galaxy S3 Mini due to its size — down to the rounded shoulder, the high-gloss surfaces, and the attractive brushed...

I have mixed feelings about the Samsung ATIV Odyssey. The hardware functions fine, even if the design is a bit boring. The signal performance and call quality are quite good, as is battery life. The Microsoft operating system is fine, and the apps all...
