This is identical in specs to the Galaxy S4 +. It's very powerful as Windows phones go. Very nice stuff. The hardware is the same as the Android hardware basically, except I am sure there are minor differences due to the OS.
Of course it isn't a S4 running WP8. It is a SAMSUNG hence the look (very similar to my Ativ S actually). The SoC is a 800 not a 600 like in the S4.
I donno wheather it plastic or no but from the back it looks premium and probably even more than the iPhone 5s. Front looks ugly coz its WP8.

samsung made a proper abuse of the same design. thats why is called same-sung.
What happened to the ativ Q? That ativ Q was an ultimate device with both windows 8 and android JB. Wonder can we port windows phone in my note 3? If ativ Q is available for purchase i will go for that.
That oversize logo Verizon insists on putting on every single one of their devices, really makes my teeth ache. I guess Verizon's board of directors have blown up egos or lack an inch or two in the downstairs department.
no maps? Samsung should add google or here maps.
I'm hoping to see here maps with with free offline and lifetime navigation .
Too bad it's not metal. It has a nice brushed metal finish on the back cover
Samsung Group (Hangul: 삼성그룹; hanja: 三星그룹; Korean pronunciation: [sam.sʌŋ ɡɯˈɾup̚]) is a South Korean multinational conglomerate company headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul. It comprises numerous subsidiaries and affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol (business conglomerate).
Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul in 1938 as a trading company. Over the next three decades the group diversified into areas including food processing, textiles, insurance, securities and retail. Samsung entered the electronics industry in the late 1960s and the construction and shipbuilding industries in the mid-1970s; these areas would drive its subsequent growth. Following Lee's death in 1987, Samsung was separated into four business groups – Samsung Group, Shinsegae Group, CJ Group and Hansol Group. Since the 1990s Samsung has increasingly globalized its activities, and electronics, particularly mobile phones and semiconductors, have become its most important source of income.
Notable Samsung industrial subsidiaries include Samsung Electronics (the world's largest information technology company measured by 2012 revenues, and 4th in market value), Samsung Heavy Industries (the world's 2nd-largest shipbuilder measured by 2010 revenues), and Samsung Engineering and Samsung C&T (respectively the world's 13th and 36th-largest construction companies). Other notable subsidiaries include Samsung Life Insurance (the world's 14th-largest life insurance company), Samsung Everland (operator of Everland Resort, the oldest theme park in South Korea), Samsung Techwin (an aerospace, surveillance and defense company) and Cheil Worldwide (the world's 15th-largest advertising agency measured by 2012 revenues).
Samsung has a powerful influence on South Korea's economic development, politics, media and culture, and has been a major driving force behind the "Miracle on the Han River". Its affiliate companies produce around a fifth of South Korea's total exports. Samsung's revenue was equal to 17% of South Korea's $1,082 billion GDP.
In 2013, Samsung began construction on building the world's largest mobile phone factory in the Thai Nguyen province of Vietnam.
