    I'm certainly interested. I'm looking to move over to Windows Phone. I'm unfamiliar with Nokia, and Ive had a few Samsung phones with Android, and they worked well. I went into Verizon yesterday and asked about moving to Windows Phone and was basically ignored. They said they don't sell many and thats where the sales pitch ended. Looking forward to the Samsung review.

    That's easy to explain: Nokia sends us phones in advanced, as they want their devices reviewed.

    Samsung? Nothing. I paid $599 for this phone out of our budget, walking into a store like everyone else. Samsung/Verizon are not exactly pushing this phone. (As a side note: how many official reviews have you seen of the ATIV SE? My guess is not many.)

    The only thing here that's disappointing is Samsung.
    yes. sadly, Samsung is definitely the bad guy here regarding marketing effort. as a member of the windows phone community and someone that would like to see windows phone use expand, I am still looking forward to your review. actually, one of the reasons I bought my ativ s, was the review that rich wrote in march '13. "...the windows phone that could have been so much more", even though it lamented Samsung's lack of marketing. I was about to purchase a galaxy s3.

    Did the ATIV SE review get posted Friday as was mentioned earlier? I didn't notice anything browsing through the last few days of posts. If not, is there a new ETA?

    After he said Friday he amended that to "a few more days". Should be this week.

    Not that I can tell. I go to VerizonWireless.com every few days to read the user reviews of the phone. Looks like a few people are coming over from Droids that like this phone. The main negative comments seem to be with the OS in general though. I think 8.1 will help with most of the complaints.

    Sorry, the link I gave redirects. If you do a search of Smartphones to buy and choose the ATIV SE, you will see about 9 or 10 user reviews up already.

    I had the phone for a week and returned it due to the constant screen freezes while using 8.1. Once they get that figured out, I'll probably be back... Great phone otherwise. Rocking the Moto X now (along with Note 3)

    That's so weird. It's actually driving me nuts at this point. Wonder why that's happening?

    I see the reviews fine. Did you try adding the phone to your cart and adding your zip-code? I noticed I had to do that for the reviews to show up. Try 91320 if you are having issues with your zip.

    Really? Shows like 13 reviews for me. Although a few 1 and 2 star reviews were on the glitches with 8.1. Of course things would be iffy using something that is not yet finished. I tend to take those reviews with a grain of salt.

    Daniel, it's been a week since you said you'd have a full review up. Do you still planning on offering one at all, or have you scrapped it for the time being? I was really looking forward to it.

    I don't know, this is just weird. In this day and age, with all the websites that do nothing but discuss every little piece of phone info, to not have one review of this device is so disappointing. It's really making me think I should not even consider it, like Nokia really is the only game in town.

    Not that there's anything wrong with Nokia (wish it was thinner), just that having choices is nice.

    Why don't you buy it if you want it? Your own experience is the best review and the one that matters most so stop waiting for a review from someone who may not see things the way you do.

    Usually would do that but I've never had a Windows phone so I was hoping for as much info as possible.

    Even more reason for you to use it yourself. You might actually be better off browsing the forums for answers to your questions or starting a thread with the things you want and seeing if WP will work for you. Ultimately though its how well the device fits your needs that matters most. You should be able to try it for the standard 14 days, get one and try it and ask questions, best way to ensure you'll enjoy it in the long run.

    Is the review still happening? Daniel said he'd have it up two weeks ago.
