    As far as I know, it's a carrier exclusive.

    It's most likely not coming to Europe.

    It might come but under a different name one day. Just like Nokia Lumia Icon is for USA and Nokia Lumia 930 is for the rest of the world, which in 95% is the same phone (design, dimensions, etc.), just a different name. Also Samsung ATIV S, the model T899 was for Canada, i8750 for International (but this two are the same phone, juts the canadian version had LTE) and Ativ S Neo for USA (tho a slightly weaker device than the previous two and kinda different design on the back) :)
    My point was, When it comes to Samsung, expect the unexpected :)

    The ATIV SE is only for Verizon.
    However Samsung will bring a Windows Phone 8.1 in Europe.

    It would be a nice upgrade from S to SE - at least for a better camera, although this isn't bad.

    Could OP potentially import it? I would think it has GSM radios like the Icon...

    I know tales of people importing HP Pre 3's to the US and the 1520 to some other country.

    I would like to have one in Europe too. Have been looking on Ebay, some unlocked Verizon SE's are offered there but still too expensive. Question is also if you will be able to get firmware updates in Europe.

    Firmware, yes but you'll have to wait for Verizon to push it out.

    Yeah I was wondering this too, sad if it doesn't reach Europe as I had eyed it up as a replacement for my ATIV S.

    Is your ATIV S broken? Why would you replace it if its working? And ATIV S will get the WP8.1 which will make him even better. I own an ATIV S i8750, and I love it, i don't care if it doesn't have 1080p or 1440p resolution. It gets things done smooth and accurate. For a 4.8" screen, 720p is perfect. Except, ofcorse, you are pixel maniac and want more pixels on your screen :-).
    My philosophies when it comes to smartphones are: "1. If it's not broken, don't fix it" & "2. You don't change the winning team" , lol

    Is 2GB of RAM and a Quad Core CPU going to make that big of a difference to an already well optimised OS and software that runs perfectly on the ATIV S?

    Thanks for posting this link ... I wasn't aware of the Core. While I do love my S I'm as shallow as the next man and would gladly upgrade to an SE if it was available in the UK! The Core seems a rather ordinary offering that would take one backwards if anything. Samsung are an odd lot, aren't they? When I finally have to part with my beloved S looks like I'll have a choice of Nokia, Nokia or even perhaps Nokia! What a pity!!

    for me 13MPX camera + LTE support is a MUST have so yes, I would be very happy if I could update
    I will wait till christmas and then switch to Nokia 930

    dont get me wrong, Ativ S is a very good phone for a super price but I want to have the latest technology in my pocket
    its a weird fetish :D

    No its not broken, but the battery life I am not happy with, and I agree with you, its a perfectly adequate phone for the time being, I tend to replace my phone every two years so had the ATIV SE lined up for 2015.

    What's wrong with the battery life, I routinely get a day to a day and a half out of a single charge. If you're expecting Nokia 3210 battery life out of it then not even the ATIV SE will impress in that area!!!

    Don't know if I've got a faulty phone then because mine lasts less than 8 hours when I'm using it moderately.

    Are you using the WP8.1 DP, I found a factory reset helps with that. I do know that the ATIV SE has issue with the DP though and this might be one of them.

    If not then it might be the battery and the only way to test that is in another phone, unless anyone has any other ideas?

    Yeah I have the DP, but the battery was as bad beforehand. Also it takes about 5 hours to charge from about 10% to full, is that normal?

    If the battery life is not good then just swipe another battery, new one, you can find it very very cheap an original ATIV S battery on eBay, amazon, or any site like that. That's one of the advantages of ATIV S, you can change the battery. If it works perfectly for you now (despite the battery issue), why change the winning team cuz of the battery who can be replaced? I own ATIV S i8750, and i'm in love with that phone, and i would replace it when it will start to fall apart. :) But thats me, and i think neo158 is in the same boat with me :)

    No thats not normal, usually longest is around 3 hours, but as i answer you before, I think your battery sux, so before jump into a new phone ditching perfectly capable phone as ATIV S, try with a new original battery for ATIV S, you can find them everywhere and they are cheap. Try with that, and see if the battery issue will be gone, and before that, try with a hard reset as neo158 suggested you :)
    And please if you do, post the results here so everyone can read and learn :)

    I'm on my second battery also, though the Original one was still quite good (one day with normal use). But I bought a very cheap battery from internet (€6,50 including shipping...), disadvantage is it has no NFC antenna, but I don't use NFC at the moment and the battery is so good I decided to keep it in active service and store the original battery as a backup (take it with me when I know I might empty the other battery). The original batteries with NFC are more expensive, but still much cheaper than a new Phone!

    I want this phone so much. I think it is better than the Nokia Lumia 930 and the HTC One M8 for obvious reasons. Come to UK. NOW! 😊
