Would be great to have a comparison of all the windows 8 phones. Plus some details of where they can be bought. Looks like they are on EE only at the moment?
Not enjoying the cheap plastic build, samsung have obviously realized this having felt the need to almost give it a unibody aluminum look on its promo shot you included.
Also the raised Start button, a signature of windows phones, looks cheap, as though it could be ripped off. Almost no thought to design. Also, its name Ativ S; sounds as though they kept is codename from the production line, its not a name for market is it, it annoys me just saying it. Its hardly going to reach the rounds of the conversation, cant imagine people saying , Ohh yea you have an ativ s !!!???
A pretty weak looking flagship phone if you ask me.
I dont care if its made of paper! Thats why you get a protective case for it!
I just bought an ATIV. They're really cheap,..and REALLY good. You can pick one up for just over two hundred quid, and it walks all over the Android Competition (I just got rid of an S3). Why tie yourself down to a fat contract where you pay over the odds for 24 months? Go SIM only and buy the phone. Yeah, it's plastic. Who cares? the S3 I traded in was immaculate after 18 months, and that's the same kind of build. Look after your phones! Windows Phone 8 is a simple operating system that I personally find much more intuitive than Android. This phone is Samsung's best kept Secret (at the price)
