Samsung Ativ S review: A fresh start - read the full textTheir Ativ S was the first Windows Phone 8 flagship announced and, respectful of chronology, the first we're about to properly review.

"There'll be no learning curve but the performance boost will be instantly felt - the dual Krait cores combined with Microsoft's optimizations have made an already snappy OS even snappier. A job well done."

Any WP8 will be faster than the fastest Android phone because of the optimizations Microsoft worked with Qualcomm on the Snapdragon S4 chip on WP8.

Samsung will have a hard time competing with Nokia within this space. Same scenario If Nokia adopted Android.
