Samsung Ativ’s in Test

Ativ’s has a nice format and a really good monitor but plastigheten and the lack of extra content leaves an aftertaste of disappointment.

It is hard not to draw parallels to the Android-phone Samsung Galaxy S3 when they briefly glance Ativ s. Headphones are very similar to each other which is both positive and negative. The positive is the strong and the big screen. Ativ’s strikes also S3 little fingers by having a dedicated camera button. The relatively low weight is also a plus. If the competitor Lumia 920 feels like a heavyweight boxer so weighs Ativ S into the featherweight class. Samsung has also been betting on a more sober appearance while competitors HTC and Nokia have gone away with the 90 ‘s rave-colors on their lurking.

Unfortunately, just like Ativ’s S3, a quite plasticky feeling overall, the battery cover is made of thin plastic but it is pretty neat metallic grey shell with a kind of “scratched” pattern. The perforated grid located over the speaker, I think is also an aesthetically pleasing features. Behind the battery cover we find, in addition to the battery, of course, a slot for micro-sd with official support for 64 gigabyte (usually 32 gigabytes) and one for the mini-sim.

The physical buttons, particularly the stylish Home button, feels solid, while the capacitive “back” and “search” has been endowed with the proper sensitivity. The large 4.8 inch screen, at present the largest Windows Phone 8-segment, has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixel and respectable a pixel density of 306 pixels per inch. The viewing angle is good but the brightness is, even on max, something in the bottom as seen in bright daylight. The colors seem less artificial saturated than they usually do on Android-variants of the same type.

The speed of the operating system, there is nothing wrong. The dual-core processor, clocked at 1.5 MHz, the power of good and it doesn’t feel like you have no power, no matter what you do with the handset, although “only” have 1 gigabyte of RAM. The camera is at eight megapixels and setting wise about it as well top competitors, but not as much as you usually find in Android lurks. You can set the ISO, exposure value, choose to use image stabilization or macro mode and set the image resolution. I like that it directly from the camera app can be searched for new photo apps via Bing, and the images in the gallery today is linked to the photo editor.

The photos are pretty good, but for the sake of making us lose the Chin. Compared to the camera in Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 images are brighter and more washed out even if the colors are represented in a natural way. The actual contrast and sharpness is lacking a little bit.

When it comes to video capable Ativ’s of recording in 1080 p. In addition to that it can hack a bit when you pan so the experience is on the whole satisfactory.

When we start digging around in the system itself to tell quickly that Samsung has not made more than the minimum necessary. While Nokia exemplary pressed into a plethora of custom, and above all good and useful apps, so we find most them in the actual Windows Phone 8 from the beginning.

The Samsung has pushed in, for example, is “Now”, which contains weather information for your area, news summary from Yahoo news, stocks, currency information and popular Tweets. The menus are structured in the same way as the operating system itself, i.e. to scroll sideways to jump between the different departments and then up and down to see through a departmental content.

There is also a Music Hub where you can preview songs or discs and then buy them. You can make playlists of the short-version of sources (one minute of the song) but why one would want to do it anyway I can not answer. Here is a comparison with Nokia inevitable and unfortunately end up Samsung not even as a close second. Unlike Finnish utopian solution is album images low resolution, it will not produce smart playback controls on the top of the screen and generally the arrangement simply inferior.

We will also find Samsung’s Chat on, a communication software that I don’t think a single person using a simpler photo editing software, a small charming but limited minidagbok and family hub (which requires a Samsung account) where family members can share photos, notes with each other in the cloud, provided they have access to a Samsung device.

Windows Phone 8 itself comes with some restrictions for me, which is usually most sitting with Android lurks, is totally incomprehensible. Some examples: Why can’t I adjust screen brightness in more than three predetermined steps, why the same policy of “tiles” on the main screen, why can I only choose a theme color and why must cell phone reboot just to change the operating system language setting?!Since sturgeon I me in abject media support and potential that is left untapped. Smart ice cream is an excellent example of the latter. As regular Android and Iphone users (and the systems are not very similar to each other in the ground), I can not really feel that I get the overview when using the system, but it’s probably more a matter of habit than a system error. At the same time, the clean look and the attempts to simplicity sometimes a skewed kick, such as calendar plate at the start screen shows only an abbreviation of what day it is in the week and the date, to not even talk about the calendar that comes out at the corner flag.

The worst thing is that I like the look that I think much has to do with Microsoft’s choice of fonts. I like the basic philosophy behind the system but unfortunately the end result is simply too limited. Where does Samsung either to or from.

On the other hand: Erik M

The biggest problem is that it is still limited with apps for Windows Phone 8 If you compare with the two» big «.» Since Nokia is doing a much better job with their own customizations to their Windows Phone 8-mobiles than what Samsung has done with Ativ s. to the latter, the cell phone is slim and smooth is a plus, as it has the NFC.
