Samsung ATIV S Review

Where Samsung ATIV S price in Pakistan delivers a smart windows phone in a gorgeous body design, it also comes with a beefy price tag. This phone breaks the continuous streak of android phones from Samsung and it takes things to a new level by delivering a phone that is a class apart, other than the price. It is a real smart phone with good multimedia and entertainment features. If you forget its qeemat for a while, the size is cool, the camera is good, and the internal specifications are impressive. Compared to its big brother, Samsung Galaxy S III, there are some features that this phone does not have, but still it is a well-packed phone.

Right off the bat, the design of Samsung ATIV S is gorgeous, looking quite close to Galaxy S III. The body is sleek, thin, compact and lightweight phone weighing 135g. The display screen has been greatly emphasized by the company to match it with SIII and puts a great first impression on the user. The size of this screen is 4.8 inches, which makes it a good platform for you to play video games or watch HD videos. On the top of it, it is a Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen and protected with the same scratch resistant coating i.e. Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

The camera of Samsung ATIV S is similar to the camera of its age twin, Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 and that of S III. All of them have a 8MP primary camera coupled with features like Geo-tagging, image stabilization and an LED flash on an autofocus lens. Though, the price of this phone does not do justice with the quality of the camera for not having features like smile detection and HD video recording, but still a nice aspect of a windows phone from Samsung. Like other smartphones, this phone also includes a 1.9MP camera on the front to make live video calls.

Performance of Samsung ATIV S is simply divine for having a Dual-core Krait 1.5 GHz tied with Adreno 225 GPU and Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon chipset. Whether you want to play HD 3D video games, watch HD movies or view HD graphics, you will love every inch of it. Then its 1GB RAM ensures that you have enough space to have smooth browsing and application processing speeds. Overall, a decent touch of hardware on a windows operating system and closely worth its price tag.

The entertainment is all yours in this Samsung smartphone. There are audio/video players to listen to favorite tracks, Stereo FM Radio for listening live broadcastings, Bluetooth, USB and NFC for rapid data sharing with others and enough space to save multimedia data.

There are some aspects that make people lose interest in this phone. First, it does not support Java applications. Then another feature that Samsung ATIV S had to leave out like any windows system is a pack of essential for smartphone applications. With most telecom companies switching to Microsim, this phone does support it, further affecting the price to product factor.
