The Ativ S is Samsung’s one and only Windows Phone 8 device, and it’s definitely no slouch. In fact, when it launched late last year it was one of the highest-end Windows Phones ever made. But Windows Phones are generally not the best selling smartphones, so prices tend to go down pretty quick, especially for handsets not made by Nokia.
That’s the case here too. Right now you can purchase a Samsung Ativ S from Expansys for just £244.99, which is apparently 51% less than before. That’s definitely what you can call a great deal. In effect, what’s happening here is that you’re now able to get a high-end phone for the price of a midranger. This is clearly not a deal to be missed if you’re into Windows Phone and its user experience paradigm.
The Samsung Ativ S has a 4.8-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording, a 1.9 MP front camera, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 42 Mbps HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2,300 mAh battery.
