Reviews for the Samsung ATIV S

88% Review Samsung ATIV S Smartphone | Notebookcheck
A new star in the Windows sky. Samsung offers a direct competitor to the HTC 8X and the Nokia Lumia 920 with the ATIV S; all three devices run Windows Phone 8. Where are the small but subtle differences and can it ascend to the Windows Phone 8 throne?
