    Yeah, I am wondering that too.
    You can put the Person Hub over there or Weather or Notifications for Text Messages/WhatsApp or shortcuts for system settiings.

    There you go MS & Samsung, now you got some ideas.
    It could also be used t​he same way as Android, flash different colours for phone calls based on the contact that's calling.

    My ATIV S has died. Specifically screen. So yes, I still can help via email.
    My new phone - Blackberry Q10. Don't ask why :D

    Well, there are unlocked 16GB models out there for 150 euros :) brand new :)
    But i think you will wait secretly in hope Samsung produce ATIV S2 and get it, hehe, I know i will, no matter how much it will cost, I'm all in.
    Anyway, what happen to the screen? there are 40-50 euros brand new original displays on AliExpress. this is just in case information :)

    Hello there!
    I've updated to Windows 10 again (10149). It's -almost- usable.
    Even though it was much better than the last time (10136), I've faced the following issues:
    - manual apn (there are only about ten to choose from)
    - reboot when adding a picture to an mms
    - loosing network and having to restart to get it back
    - could not properly configure mms settings (settings not properly saved)
    - lock screen that would hang occasionally (phone is alive but you cannot unlock, needs a restart)
    - the navigation app is not yet usable but is very well done (could not find traffic, wants you to cross white lines, voices are too low, ativ became very hot etc...)
    - changing start screen colors may force reboot your ativ
    - start screen wallpaper may be not saved
    - long or infinite resuming on certain occasions
    - some app crashes (but not systematically)

    on the positive side:
    - not as slow as previous build
    - Outlook email client seems better thant 8.1's
    - camera works (artifacts on saving pictures but fine when viewing them)
    - bluetooth works (seems ok using a bluetooth speaker)
    - wifi works
    - call works

    I think there is considering how poorly the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge has been doing. One thing that Samsung could potentially do is make an ATIV S2 as a Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge variant, that would cut down on engineering costs as the hardware is already developed. Don't forget that the ATIV S was really a Galaxy S3 running Windows Phone.

    antenna or not
    the basic question is
    would Samsung enable LTE on a nearly 3y. old mobile phone?
    The answer is.... :-)
    the answer is: "Microsoft Now Rolling Out Firmware Update To Enable 4G In Select Lumia Devices In India"
    google for more details, I don't know if links are allowed

    yeah but there is a BIG difference between Microsoft and Samsung WP. Microsoft wants to get more publicity (users), Samsung not.

    The ATIV S T899M is also MSM8960. I'm not sure that I understand how Windows 10 is going to work with the carriers, but if it does have to go through the carrier, Canada will never see W10 considering we just got W8.1 a few months ago :)

    Anyway, in your core you are a WP fan, so it's the matter of time when you return to your family, hehe.
    It was a real pleasure having debate, exchange and share knowledge with a person with such an enthusiasm and dedication to maybe one of the best WP phones produced. How I see the ATIV S is: Once you go ATIV S, the only thing that will make you change it is the ATIV S2 :)
    However, ... LG Spirit? Seriously? :)))
    See you soon bro, maybe this autumn :)

    I've just seen your post now :D
    Well, looks like I'm coming back. :D But now with Lumia 735. I have offer to exchange my Spirit for 735 tomorrow and probably I will. I like my LG, it's wonderful, nice camera mybe even better then Ativ S, back buttons, great curved display, but can't stand the fact that it can lag randomly few times a day and I have to wait and wait. And Gorilla Glass 3 on it is poor, for first time I didn't put screen guard on and plastic of my external battery scratched it far worse that it would my old L520. Otherwise, it would be nice phone with W10 on it. :D

    Anyway, my brother also sold Ativ S I gave him and he is on Lagdroid now with some old LG.

    Problem with my Ativ was that it started to age. Not the processor or GPU, not in terms of speed, but the battery and housing. It's Sammy's poor build quality, mostly batteries on Samsung phones die faster and color of housing started to peel of when taking off the silicon case. I'm taking it off only after few couople of weeks to cleand dust under it, but really. i my have stayed longer but can't find replacement battery anywhere, even on the net.

    BTW, thanks to everybody who said good buy to me it this thread :)
