Samsung ATIV S Neo Review
Its been a while since we have since a Windows Phone device on Sprint. I believe the last was a the HTC Arrive and that was over 3 years ago. The ATIV S Neo makes the an intro back to Windows Phone for Sprint as while as Samsung. Yes there have been Samsung Devices for Windows phone, but none in the USA for Windows phone 8. The ATIV S Neo retails for $49.99 with a 2 year contract on the Now network. It comes with a 1.4ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of ram, 16GB of internal storage , 8MP camera and expandable memory via microsd. It is quite clear that in the Windows phone market place, Nokia is king. But Samsung has decided to take some of its successes from its Android flagship the Galaxy S4 and bring it over to the ATIV S Neo. For starters. its got a 4.8-inch 720p display which actually looks pretty good. You also have the ability to create folders for you apps. though limited its still is a nice way to tidy up the clustered start screen. The camera also features a few of the camera modes found on the S4, but it is limited to just 4 modes and you can only take photos in 4×3 aspect ratio. Finally Samsung has brought over its S beam functionality over. Allowing user to send information via S beam from Windows Phone device such as the ATIV S Neo to galaxy device– works pretty well. Overall Samsung has added a few things to make the ATIV S Neo a distinct device, but in all honesty it feels half baked. You can see the Samsung could do much more to give a fully compelling experience. But that isn’t the case here. The ATIV S Neo is a solid device that does pretend to offer more than it actually has.
