    I don't give a **** about Samsung because Samsung doesn't give a **** about WP8. Period.
    Wow. Aren't you a real treat. Have fun with your crappy brick.

    Samsung decided not to roll out Ativ S smartphone in Korea this year. But it will launch promotional campaigns for the Ativ S for consumers in Europe, said an official from the company.


    While. Do love the 920 and getting one as well for my personal phone. I also do like the Ativ S. and will have it as my work phone. And glad Samsung is doing something for the Ativ S
    Wow. Me never knew Samsung cared for windows phone 8. Maybe that is why the made the ativ S different from the s3

    It's funny because a couple months ago I wanted a nokia and now I despise it, not because of nokia itself, but the half pints on this site that ridicule everything not nokia.

    While I do not want an Ativ S due to it's size and ergonomics (basing this off of using a Galaxy S III for a few weeks), I'm happy to have as many big name manufacturers producing WP8 hardware as possible. Kudos to Samsung for bringing over their top of the line device without watering it down at all.

    From the moment the presenter strutted around on stage holding the ATIV, I thought I was in. Sammy gave me the Focus S, and it has been the best device I have ever owned or anyone in my family has owned, period. Performance, dependability, and pure enjoyment.

    I have become a Nokia fan simply because the dedication they have shown to their devices (Symbian as well) and their amazing quality screens. The 900 is great, and the 920 exploded off the screen, and that was just on my computer.

    But, believe me: I feel like a broken record when I say the 920 is choice 1-A and the ATIV is choice 1-B. Heck, the 820 has become a possibility for me, depending on it's performance. I have to buy off contract, so I will keep that option open. I so want to see the ATIV do well. I think it is the most professional looking device, slick and just original enough to stand out. 4.8" screen will probably be great.

    I am so excited for one of them to earn my dollars. Can not for the life of me understand why some posters are worried which one is successful. I would love ALL of them to get iPhone numbers. Then we know WP options will keep coming.

    And? Where are the commercials with the Ativ? They don't care about WP8. Sorry if that upsets you but it's the truth. Android is their bread and butter.
    There is nothing to advertise yet, since the products are not available for sale.

    I am sure that Samsung will advertise the Ativ. Samsung has advertised previous Windows Phones, such as the Focus.

    Samsung goes way back to WinMo. I still remember their Jack ads with Ozzy Osbourne.

    I think its great you all want to argue about what device will be better. It really show how interest in WP8 is growing. Six months ago we were having much different discussions. more about will WP survive. Lets try to keep it civil in here we all want the same thing we want WP8 to be a hit and grow.

    Well said however most on this forum don't argue which is best but rather which is worst. I belong to several forums under different usernames and I find the members of this forum the most hateful and immature. Often attacking others for valid reasoning and quickly jumping at the opportunity to call somebody a troll. Crackberry.com has the best community because they all have a common interest which is the success of the BlackBerry platform. I would love to see that same unity on this forum with emphasis on a common interest which is the success of the Windows Phone platform. Who cares what device somebody wants and who cares which phones don't have a 720p screen. All WP8 phones will be awesome in their own way so let's just support the platform instead of preference of OEMs.

    I'm in the Nokia camp for my next device, and I don't like the feel of Samsung devices, but I will NEVER question their durability. My previous phone was a Samsung and I once threw it about 40' across a gas station parking lot. It skipped twice and hit a picket fence. I put the battery back in, put the cover back on, powered it up, and it was fine for several more months until I got my HD7.

    If I can't get my hands on a Nokia for whatever reason, I will be taking a hard look at the Ativ, as I had a bad experience with HTC, and it does look like a great device, feel aside.

    The more phones out there, the better for WP8 as a whole. If we all liked the same phone it would be pretty boring. Plus competition brings innovation, not complancency.

    I believe the Nokia fans are only on this board, Nokia is the laughing stock on other forums. Samsung is quality. Though I hate how long their devices take to charge.
    i post in 9 different forums including this one believe it or not the majority with Nokia > HTC > samsung :D

    Most of the people I know would rank HTC worst in terms of build quality. None of the folks I know have issues with build quality of their Samsung devices. Most of the folks I know also consider Nokia to have good build quality.

    Just took a trip through the 8X forum. For some reason I don't see Nokia or Samsung fans trolling there at all...yet the 920 section has a dozen threads in the first few pages basically just talking **** about Nokia/AT&T.

    Interesting.

    Many bash Samsung for being light plasticky, many others bash Nokias for being too thick too heavy. Others say that Samsung and HTC are just cloning their Android devices cases and stuffing WP in them. And some rip whomever because they dont like whatever, and think that a device should have exactly what they want. No single device is the perfect device for everybody and that dos not make it a bad device. For the most part we have not held a WP8 device or played wityh it except the lucky few. Whay cant we have a civil Discussion or two, will we wait to actually see and feel for ourselves which device is for us and why and go from there.

    Honestly, everything was fine for the most part until the exclusivity announcements came. That's when the **** hit the fan.

    That's going to happen in the US, regardless of platform. For example, Motorola just announced new Android device, but it is only for VZW.

    I'm not sure how well that graph goes together with like, current W7 devices out there are like.. 70% Nokias? Also just about every single other graph this far has showed Nokia as the clear leader, at least when comparing the currently announced flagships (rather than asking a generic "Which manufacturer...?".

    Not trying to invalidate the graph per se, but just wondering why it shows so different from many other graphs and AFAIK currently the real world.

    But I guess it also depends where you ask.. like a tech site or out on the streets. And what country :P Nokia still and never was all that big in the US.

    they asked the general public, which is who you must ask to get a good idea of which phone will sell the most...

    You remember what people were saying about the iPhone 5 on tech sites? 5 million iPhones were sold after 3 days...

    Even if Samsung can push WP8 further, it remains to be seen just to what extent they are willing to push the envelope considering the developments of HTC anointed the signature WP8 device, Nokia Lumia 920 hogging the spotlight from tech blogs and Samsung itself is doing well on Android.

    Granted, everything will change come Oct 26th and the whole cycle kicks into gear, but volume-wise, midrange products are the prime movers, and Samsung does have an obvious gap that the HTC 8S and the L820 is filling right now.
