In all fairness’ sake, Samsung has finally released one of its very few Windows running smartphones. We’re all used to Samsung mobiles to be running with the Android operating system. At least, the company is giving the rest of the Microsoft consumers a chance to acquire a Samsung handset. Let’s take a close look at the new Samsung Ativ S Neo and we’re about to find out if it’s worth switching to a Windows 8 phone like this.
Its design is very similar to the one Samsung Galaxy S4 has yet it has a metallic strap all around the edges of the handset. It also comes in a dark blue color and its case is made of hard plastic. Its design looks very professional and its build is as sturdy as how other Samsung mobile phones look like. However, its home screen button is beautiful and catches attention because it is oblong-shaped and has the Windows logo embedded in it.
The Samsung Ativ S Neo is running a Windows 8 operating system and allows the users to experience everything all of the features and applications that a Windows operating system can offer. It allows you to multitask as you can finish all of your documentation in the same phone while checking your notifications on any of the social media sites and your email.
This is the good thing about having a Windows-operated smartphone because you can bring your work with you anytime and anywhere. It is also a phone powered by a dual-core processor that is paired with 1GB of RAM. The phone also has an extra slot for you to be able to expand the internal memory for up to 64GB by using a separate memory card.
It’s just not impressing that it has a battery with 2000 mAh of power. It may or may not last you the whole day because it will always depend on the demands of the applications that you will be using during the day. The Samsung Ativ S Neo sells for $150 without a contract and the user can freely choose a mobile carrier to use. But it’s offered at a cheaper contract if you’ll get it from big mobile carriers like Sprint, AT&T or Verizon.
