I have had this phone for 3 months now and this is flawless, even better than Nokia's. Removable battery, excellent battery life, gorgeous screen, microSD, this phone is just perfect. Already on Update 3 and will receive WP 8.1, compared to Android most ones don't even receive any updates. The iPhone has nothing on this.
Bought the phone last week. Loving it and best Windows Phone in the market in the mid range segment.
Friends my phone switches off very frequently by otself can someone help me with this issue
ok ive had hundreds of smartphones.. from huawei to nokia lumia to galaxy even ones like the s duos but the ativ S is faster. bigger more stylish, rotation isnt annoying me like the lumia 520 did , speaker quality much better , camera is amazing, screen is so smooth and responsive no lagging on wi-fi or mobile internet, no coverage issues like the other phones ive had, faster startup, no random force closing and keyboards nice to type with, no GDR3 update here in NZ yet for the Ativ S but i think the reviews for this phone should be alot higher than where they stand now, i give it a 9.5/ 10
rdt, 08 Jan 2014Hi Ativ S users. Is there a call/sms block feature on this phone? Thank you.I has block function for calls, but I don't know about the sms
Display on this device is phenomenal. This contrast between black and white and all other, can only be achieved with led display. Gliding trough the settings, the text seems to be like 3d, like additional paper sheet on top of the screen. Such contrast is achieved because led technology emits all the light out of the screen. Black is true black. With lcd displays you have additional light sources (led) which shine on the display so what we see is reflected light. In this way it is very difficult to produce true black and high contrast.

zaf, 15 Dec 2013cannot receive or send pictures. whygenerally this is an issue with your service providers setup. Look up the MMS settings for your service provider
After jumping back to WP on Ativ after one year Android experience on SGSII i feel like coming home after long bumpy journey... My first impression was "damn that's huge!"... ;) After playing with it for a couple of days i can say that this is one of the most underestimated smartphones you can get. Oh, and the battery life... 3 days of regular usage after first charge!
