Galaxy S3 is awesome and prettier...
This phone is only made for the sake of launching wp8 by samsung..nothing special

.no comparison with ... moreThere is no such "pureview an' pure HD + display". It's what greedy Nokia decides to call their IPS-LCD to misinform and sell their mobile phones.
I'm more than certain this IPS-LCD is made by someone else.
But you can stay in delusion.

It is called being a grown up. Being an adult.
That's what a reference phone supposes to be. That's why this phone should've been a reference phone of WP8.
But agian I respect others' taste of design and those kids can colorful plastic toys.

It has the same uninspired design of all other Samsung phones, and that's why no one really likes it. Don't get me wrong, its design is better than the SIII; at least this one doesn't look like it's made from cheap plastic. But the design? Let's say Samsung phones have a hard time winning any design awards.

Once they were the best in the industry now they are just a bunch of rotten apples. Wp8 have ftp over bluetooth, samsung does it, but nokia and htc havent included that feature, dont know why?

Samsung is so lazy. Wait for lumia 920 review..it has equalizer and other custom tweeks under it's sleeve. Let's see also what customizations HTC have.
great device specs n design and only if it wasnt for this wp os which i really dont like despite very agressive marketing, open-source os would be better like symbian belle/carla. that would be better option but as you know there is no agressive marketing for symbian (trojan horse elop)... just a sad sad story! :/
After I read through the review, I realize that ATIV S is only phone that has aluminum body which many people and fanboys brag about all those years.
And ATIV S looks more conservative and professional than 920. I mean this is what Nokia used to stand for - being an adult among the crowd.
I mean, at this point, I cannot find any single reason to hate this phone.
This phone should been an window 8 reference phone.
My respects to Lumia 920
but Active S is for someone who prefers slimmer and lighter phone with sd card expansion slot + Lumia 920. What a sexy beast. It even looks better than S3.
I'm sorry but X8 just doesn't look good. HTC lost its plot lately...
Need a proper comparison with the galaxy s3 performance wise to see how the OS compares to android

I won't go as far as calling you a liar but you obviously were never a true user of any of those platforms, save for Android.
iOS for example has enough tricks up its sleeve to make you a fan if you have an iPhone for over 6 months. So does Windows Phone.
Aata majhi satakli, 31 Oct 2012Bada os is the best os in the world i love iti used bada as well :P but i wasn t impressed
We need a battery test to define the platform ability
i dont like wp8 interface only android only sony
Ruce, 31 Oct 2012My 1st choice is still the Nokia Lumia 920 but this looks like a sweet 2nd contender A fellow kenyan?
No fm radio wtf? Ativs biggg fail
