Not sure if Samsung will do as well in WP8 competition as they did in Android. For one thing, the name ATIV is lame compared to Galaxy, especially with Lumia already establishing itself.

I know for a fact its a very good o.s, and its simple to use, but thats just an opinion. Just like how android looks good, but operates like crap, despite what these fandroids say. I will get windows over android, for sure.

Boring? You can customize your tiles to your liking, change the color, live tiles are awesome for they really keep you up to date at minimum without having to open the app. Please tell me how you prefer icons like the iphone and android have!! and although widgets look pretty cool, they take up too much space, too much battery, and not all programs have widgets! Live tiles are the way to go! simple basic updated info right in yo face!!! WP FTW!

Samsung just made this for the sake of making it, just like they do with all their phones. Its 400 us plus in my area without a contract.

on top of that, 2100mah battery for midrange spec'd phone will yield MUCH better battery life than the 920

It's a sub par phone. The Microsoft Kiosk, had this on display along with the lumia 920. Bad idea, as the Lumia 920 made this phone feel like crap. I'm sorry to offend any Sammy's out there. You feel this phone, then feel the Lumia 920, and it really feels average. The only thing good about it, is the operating system.
