    I've just seen your post now :D
    .....

    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.
    ...

    I was about to quote him and send the same url's from AliExpress, but then i saw your comment, LOL.
    Yes, Dushan, what Pappale send you are the original parts, i order the same ones for a friend from Skopje who was also on the edge to sold his ATIV S and get probably some new Lumia. He had the same problem with the aging of the phone, after almost 2 years his ATIV S didn't had one scratch on the Gorilla Glass 2 (guess we got the quality one here). Then i said to him, that i can order the original spare parts he needed for his ATIV S and both are coming "free shipping" to Macedonia. 11 days later he have a "new" ATIV S :).
    On the other side, my ATIV S is now turning 17 months of usage and still looks like brand new, no aging whatsoever. Whats the secret? It's simple, I didn't use any cases, I just used a leather pouch from day 1 :).
    Glad to hear you are back to your family, 735 is an awesome device, my converted Android fan friend is using it now and loves it. :)

    Housing doesn't ship to my country, but I remember changing housing on phones earlier, in most cases it doesn't fit well.

    I swear I searched for battery and didn't found any. Good to know they are available there. You must have better internetz.

    Yup, we are getting the Windows 10 Mobile, the question is WHEN? :)
    Attachment 109035
    That doesn't really mean anything. All it tells me is that devices using the MSM8960 CAN be updated to W10M, not that the ATIV S WILL be updated to W10M.

    The only devices we know WILL get W10M are Nokia/Microsoft Mobile devices.

    Hey guys...my phone went charging very slow those 2 days..and today it wont charging...after so time i observe that its charging same slow..but not showing any indicator at battery...i hard reset it but i still have the problem..i didnt restore any backup..when i plug the phone while its OFF on charge its keep vibrating and no booting instead of booting normaly..its booting only by buton beeing unpluged...what dafuq happen?
    That happend to my ATIV 4 days ago - it didn't indicate that it is charging, but it was. I rebooted the phone but the bug stayed. For 2 charges, first was to 100% the other stopped at only 90% (!) it behaved strange like this, but after that it seems the bug is gone.

    Screen of my Ativ S broke recently due to a fall. Ativ S will remain with me and I will try to get the screen repaired. This is not possible in Pakistan and I will have to get the screen from abroad (got Ativ S from US through a relative). So have to move to my next phone. Due to limitations of Windows Phone in Pakistan (e.g. almost no maps coverage, limited to no support from carriers, and no chance of repairs etc.) I have decided to move to Android phone. I hope Windows Phone gets more popular in Pakistan and Microsoft also makes some effort on making it visible here.

    Haven't had a reboot for a few months now, but witnessed that issue already several times since I got my device in November 2013. Will take a look at that in the future.
    ...
    Just a short notice, the last update doesn't seem to work very well for me, had three reboots within 10 days when we were on holiday in areas with poor coverage. Now back home everything works fine again.

    I also have a 930 and after installing all the updates it's a much better device. The battery seems to be pretty good, I get over a day out of a single charge but that all depends on how many apps you have running background tasks and how heavily you use the device so YMMV. The 930 also suffered from screen lift and heating issues but I've seen none of that on my 930 aside from the initial set up which did heat the device up significantly, I do notice the heat from it more though but that's mainly due to the aluminium chassis.

    Overall I personally think that it's a great device.

    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.

    BTW, thanks to everybody who said good buy to me it this thread :)
    about the battery life i have noticed something. For about last few months I've been charging my phone on an usb port of my PC. last week i charged it using charger I got with phone. The battery last less when charged using charger whics is genuine samsung.
    When charged on pc usb, battery consumption is around 1.1%/hour, overnight and mostly standby during time i work so after 1 day after charge batter goes to about 70-75%.
    When charged on charger it goes down noticeably faster, sometimes after 1 day of using it the same way battery goes down to 60-65%. And i believe it chargers some faster when on usb. Also if i overcharge it on usb for about 30min after getting to 100% it last a bit longer, goes no less than 80% after 1 day (24h) which is a tad less than 1%/h

    for sure we can
    but what about the performance? Ativ S is nearby 3 years old
    how will it perform with only a dual core CPU? 1GB ram is enough for basic use but the dual core CPU (the GPU is slow too) is too old

    Considering W10M is supposed to run on the Lumia 520 I think the ATIV S will run it just fine.

    Neo, thanks a lot for your honest comments on 930. Now I am thinking of waiting for 940/950 or whatever comes the next. Loving Windows OS so much that dont want to even think of going back to Android. Also dont want to part away from ATIV S but if they are not going to upgrade our beloved ATIV S to W10M then one day we all have to move on to other W10M devices. Samsung must do something about ATIV S. As Microsoft did not give Insider Preview for ATIV S, the chances of ATIV S getting W10M are almost ZERO. HTC One (M8) got the Preview but ATIV S was left out. Hoping for things to change and ATIV S getting official W10M...

    Thanks everyone for the updates... Hope ATIV S keeps us all together with W10M...

    well... the 520 is a LUMIA device, not Samsung so thats a big difference. If we get WP10 via insider program without new firmware the device will be slow or unusable

    No problem, I'm looking at the 950XL as well as I currently have an Android device as a backup and getting a 950XL as either a primary or backup device to ditch Android for good. I totally agree about the ATIV S though. Samsung have to do something, either a new device running W10M or release W10M for the ATIV S.

    Snapdragon 400/410 are not more powerful than our S4 Plus. Adreno 225 (S4 Plus' GPU) is more powerful than 305/306 (400/410's GPU). Tried with benchmark against my brother's 640XL (Snap 400/Adreno 305) and my gf's Desire 620 (Snap 410/Adreno 306). Both are 2015 devices. They only use less battery. So Ativ S is still a good phone IMHO

    Don't mix WP with Android in pure benchmarking.
    Also, while S4 have more powerful cores, 400 have four of them, and switching from app to app and resuming, not to say "multitasking", is noticeable faster on my new 735 than on my former Ativ S. ATIV is better in single core tasks but in real use S400 brings improvements and ia faster.
