    1. Battery life, how long would you be able to use it non stop, playing music, games, apps etc.

    2. Are you able to upgrade the battery to a longer lasting one?

    3. How fast is it?

    4. Does it have micro sim input?

    1. Battery life is excellent and from my experience, superior to the Lumia 920 and Galaxy S3. Just as with any device, playing games can drain the battery very quickly. Some games will take you from full charge to 20% within 1 to 2 hours. At this moment, my ATIV is sitting at 66% remaining charge after 18 hours including a few phone calls, texts, and app use.

    2. I don't know, but I have friends who have these (ridiculous) giant battery packs on their Galaxy S3 and S4. It makes sense that there is probably one for ATIV S, but I'd say that you don't need it.

    3. Fast enough for a solid user experience. No lag, no problems running any apps or games.

    4. There is a micro sim slot. I personally have never used it.

    Agreed with RJ on items 1-3. For item 4, you will need a Micro SIM in order to connect to a network, unless you mean Micro SD in which case, yes, there is a slot for that. It supports up to 64 GB.

    I currently have the Lumia 920, its battery makes me physically sick.

    I mean a Micro SIM card!

    Lets say you was to use Twitter or Play music for a few hours, or all day even, how much battery would that remove from 100%?

    Oh, I feel like a fool. I was thinking of micro SD lol. I've never used an SD card in my phone.

    I get approx 25%-30% more time from the Ativ S compared to the Lumia 920. At least this was the case when I changed devices a year ago.
