After much delay, the Samsung Ativ S finally made its appearance. Would it live up to its height or would it be a thing of the past like many phones it has followed?At first look,the sleek design features a thin build along with a bigger screen helping you to enjoy the images better.The screen measures
4.8 inches making it very comparable and much larger to many of its counterparts.Viewing the screen is simple with its bright lit display and the way you can see it at awkward angles.The chrome exterior makes it very similar to the IPhone but instead it of the real feel of metal,the Ativ S is made of plastic.This phone is not only sleek looking but feels great in the palm of your hand with its lightweight features.Given these great features, the phone is sure to be competitive with many other phones currently on the market.
Components of the Device
Buyers will love the option of choosing between 16 or 32 GB of internal memory.Additionally,the battery can be removed in case of damage or replacement.Not only can you remove the battery from the phone,you can also remove the SIM card and SD cards.This is great for storing files for the device for even more memory.One feature of the device many can enjoy is the camera button located on the side of the device.This is not seen on many of the devices that have recently entered the market making it much easier to maneuver the phone to take a picture with the Ativ S.When ready to take a picture,you need to press the focal point to snap the shot.This could throw the picture off focus if not careful.
The interlocking tiles make the display much more attractive.One of the greatest attributes it bumping a tile to a larger size so you can get to it much easier.This customization is unlike we have seen with any other phone.By pressing the icon for a few seconds,you have several options to choose from. You can make it more accessible by pinning it,you can share it with others,you can uninstall the app if you no longer need it,or you can rate the app.While many users may be disappointed with the selection of apps on the phone,there are plenty of them to browse through and select for a plethora of uses.
While most people may lose sight of what the phone is actually for, contacting people, this phone is great for getting in touch with someone through multiple outlets.The Messaging app allows you to contact people through multiple platforms and even check if they have seen the message through
delivery confirmation.Of course,there is an emailing service that you can utilize as well.Many people will be disappointed with the lack of 4G; however the longer battery life should make up for it.Speaking of battery life,the battery is reported to last all day even with heavy use.
While the Samsung Ativ S follows many great phones by Samsung,the Ativ S could go both ways.Some will love its cool features and sleek look,but it does lack some noticeable features that other phones contain for the same price.Its lack of 4G is a big issue for many.Additionally,although it is thin and
lightweight,the plastic body loses some of its appeal.Many users make enjoy the lightness of the phone but will ultimately choose the real thing with another type of phone.Most users may look elsewhere for a smart phone especially if the phone is not in stock.Still,the Samsung Ativ S is not something to shrug off.It has great specs and addable memory that make it a great phone.
