    According to figures I copied from another thread for Best Buy sales figures (for the week of 11/10/13) the Ativ Odyssey is out pacing the Lumia 822 on Verizon. Any thoughts as to why this is happening? I thought the Lumia devices would out perform the Samsung devices.

    Verizon (80 phones offered)
    57. Nokia Lumia 928 Black (55. a week ago, 60. a month ago)
    58. Nokia Lumia 928 White (64. a week ago, 67. a month ago)
    68. Samsung Ativ Odyssey (66. a week ago, 69. a month ago)
    69. Nokia Lumia 822 White (67. a week ago, 70. a month ago)
    70. Nokia Lumia 822 Black (50. a week ago, 71. a month ago)

    probably pricing and the Samsung has a higher res display which makes it look better but its still below the 928, also the 822 is split into 2 colours so the Samsung isn't really outperforming as you'd have to add the two 822's together

    Good point that I hadn't thought of.

    The Odyssey actually has the same resolution but looks worse (I'm guessing it's a Pentile display and the 822 isn't - I don't know this for a fact, but I can definitely tell a difference between the two).
