Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung ATIV S


8.5
Conclusion: There's a lot to love in the ATIV S. It's not the perfect smartphone, but it has a large and eye-catching Super AMOLED screen, as well as decent exterior and stable performance.

8.0
Thanks to Windows 8, Microsoft's OS has become an entirely different beast as of late, at least from an aesthetics and interface point of view.
