Don’t call it a Galaxy S3, you’ll make it mad
Steve Litchfield on the Samsung ATIV S:
Navigation aside though, the extra bells and whistles of Nokia’s software additions can be largely matched (or at least equivalenced) with a few timely downloads from the Store on the ATIV S, making the latter’s unique selling points – its large and pleasing screen, its large capacity, removeable battery, its microSD expansion and flexibility, its use of faux-metal materials for a premium look (if not feel) – perhaps the critical factors in deciding which Windows Phone 8 handset to buy.
Samsung has done a good job with the ATIV S’s hardware, producing something that’s definitely desirable. The clever buyer will snap it up and, with some choice application additions, use it as the basis for a Windows Phone that will serve well for years.
