New image of the Samsung ATIV SE leaked, shows darker back

Samsung ATIV SE

Last Sunday we were treated to a render of Samsung’s upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 device. It’s called the ATIV SE, but was previously known as the both the Samsung Huron and SM-W750V. Specs are still scarce on the ATIV SE. Though we do have a new look at it today thanks to Twitter leaker evleaks.

This is a darker shade compared to the ATIV SE we saw earlier this week. You can compare the two below.

Samsung ATIV SE backs

You’ll have to let us know which you prefer. The lighter shade on the left or the darker one on the right. Or would your rather skip this Samsung device altogether and wait for something from Nokia. The ATIV SE is expected to hit Verizon, though you probably could have guessed that with the giant Verizon logo on the device.

Ditto! Both look better than the pockmark glam look of the S5 - otherwise known as twin brother of the Band Aid.

tbonenga says:

Same here Samsung knows how to do it right. SD slot on every phone.

b23h says:

totally agree that a SD card slot is a very important feature for me...

Must also admit that past experience with an older Samsung has given me a bit of an antipathy towards Samsung, but some of that may have been the old version of Android it was running....

For now my ideal phone would be something that has the metal looks of the HTC One, a SD Card slot, a dedicated camera button (hardware home buttons I am up in the air about) and a five inch or so 1080 display.  Qi charging would be nice as well, but not necessarily as critical as the other features.

 

Novron says:

Aside from the SD, you just said you wanted an Icon.

tbonenga says:

I said numerous times Nokia had a perfect phone until they neutered it by not having a SD slot. Same thing with the 1520. It would've been perfect if it had 32GB internal.

buggyglint says:

The Lumia 1520 does come with 32gb... AT&T didn't have their version ready at launch but there was always the international version with 32gb.

http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/devices/nokia/lumia-1520-32gb-matte-bla...

tbonenga says:

I would LOVE a 1520 pentaband that works perfect on Tmo. I wouldn't have got a Note 3 if that option was available. I'll NEVER buy a NON AMERICAN Nokia again. I got burned on a Rogers 920 warranty issue. I heard Att was going to release a 1520 32GB with a SD slot. If it's Pentaband somebody let me know!!! I'd dump my Note 3 in a heartbeat for one.

LaNiQuE says:

Cheers for posting the link...I'm trying to figure out why are there so many comments about they wish there was a 1520 with a SD slot ... When a bunch of us like myself actually have this phone if you come to this site how do they not know im sure the average customer wouldn't but you guys read wpcentral

paulomalley says:

They do... And I have it...

b23h says:

fairly close

SocalTouch says:

Something like this could be a dream come true.

It needs a better brand name.  Ativ sounds computer-generated.

I think something "cosmic" to complement their Galaxy line for Android would be good... since it's basically the same hardware anyway.

 

paulomalley says:

It's just Vita backwards... Vita is Latin for life.

Well, Efil is the word Life backwards.  What's your point?  It's still a lousy brand name.

lippidp says:

"Dude, have you seen the new Efil?" Hahaha... I'm with you. ATIV is lame as is Samsung in general.

Nik Rolls says:

Actually I was told by one of their sales reps that ATIV is from the word 'creATIVe'.

Nik Rolls says:

Ironically they're not really either because they're just a rehash of a Galaxy S model with Windows on it.

RyanAMG says:

I'll join the dark side if you let me work on the Deathstar

duk3togo says:

Is this fake?? Because I don't see a camera button....

bono5112 says:

Dedicated camera button not required on WP 8.1

duk3togo says:

Then its crap, thx for the info.

I'm sure this will be quad core, 1080p, SD card slot, beautiful AMOLED display, but no camera button = crap. Thx for your insight.

I'll gladly take this crappy phone.  Too bad it only appears to be a Verizon branded device.  For the time being that will remain my deal breaker for me.  Otherwise I'd love to have this. 

kurtd says:

Sprint stinks after they got the palm pre, the next version went to another carrier and now the same thing happens to the ativ s

lippidp says:

Not to mention the terrible service.

ivo_apo says:

Design of this phone looks perfect. I am sure spec will match SG4 or SG5.
Wait for Nokia? What for?
I will take SG4/SG5 design with WP on it any time.
After 920 I am rocking now ATIV S Build quality is exceptional. Samsung know how to produce top notch hardware. Can't wait ...

Ian Too says:

If past experience is any guide, you'll waite longer for this than any Nokia. Remember the Ativ was the 1st W8 announced. Nokia had the 8&920s and HTC had the 8X&S out before the Ativ got into people's hands.

juanitoriv says:

True.. Sammy was announced first. Nokia had offerings across the board. The 8X was available to just about everyone though. I'm just holding off for an HTC Wone, W1 or whatever they call it.. Maybe a Lenovo Think8.1.. Hmmmm

ivo_apo says:

Yep.
HTC One variant with WP will be great.
I will personally go for SG5 variant with WP.

Dare2Blink says:

What are you smoking? Samsung build quality exceptional? Don't make me laugh. Cheap plastic (as opposed to high quality polycarbonate) and extremely fragile. Samsung phones are a jokes, the SD slots are the only advantage they usually have.

ivo_apo says:

I'm wondering what's your ground for comparison? Have you actually used ATIV S? I bet not.

I gotta agree. The Ativ S was a fantastically built phone, and has always been one of my favorite Windows Phone 8's. Have always been sorry I sold it.

Groover1971 says:

If you want a decent build quality (Nokia), an SD card slot, a one-handed usable sized screen (4.3), 1Gb ram with 16Gb onboard storage, and is wireless charging capable without a shell, you need to look at the Lumia 822.

el-ojo says:

They're both made from polycarbonate. It seems you've been smoking too much NOKIA!

znellu says:

Ok Smasung fan :D

8XSD says:

No thanks, Nokia ftw

Judge_Daniel says:

I wouldn't mind the Samsung, but it doesn't have a camera button. That makes it a non-starter.

Same for me... I love my Ativ S, but camera button...

gar216 says:

I don't use the camera button to actually take pictures, but I couldn't imagine not using one as a shortcut to the camera app.

Micah Dawson says:

Same here. Nokia is where I'm at.

cannon#WP says:

It would be appreciated if you would then go to a Nokia article.

b23h says:

Wow, I did not know WP Central had segregated areas.   And I would have sworn there was a line in the article explicitly asking about whether or not people would rather have a Nokia.

Or would your rather skip this Samsung device altogether and wait for something from Nokia

Oh, yea that's it.   Personally I like the darker metal, but I do also prefer a camera button, I don't like the Windows button (it looks cheesy to me) and finally I like my 920 too much still.... 

rodneyej says:

This⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆⬆

rodneyej says:

No, it would be appreciated if he voiced his opinion about Nokia.. That's what Sam asked for him to do in the article....
..........................
You aren't running nothing over here... You ain't me❕

DavidinCT says:

After the customer service NIGHTMARE I have had, If this phone has a 5" display and MicroSD....Screw Nokia, I will never buy one again... Worst company I have EVER delt with..

tbonenga says:

I had a nightmare experience with Nokia too. I bought a Rogers 920 to use on Tmo in the US. Well it broke. Nokia wouldn't honor the warrant. They said since it was a Canadian phone they only honor the warranty in Canada. BS.... Business travelers, Students etc. Could easily get shafted.

rodneyej says:

But, that's how most companies handle warranties, and products out of region..

Romantical says:

i have a nokia 1520 and im not happy at all.  my samsung focus was a more enjoyble experience. i hope this new one comes to AT&T since it is my family carrier. no mor nokias for me.

Dare2Blink says:

Are you just trolling? If not please be specific and don't just say that you are not happy with your 1520 without saying why...

aitt says:

With as much as people spewing hate on here for Samsung with no cause he doesn't have to justify to you.

Romantical says:

It's too heavy, too big, I can't enlarge pictures on websites when I'm shopping.  The ringer volume button keeps getting turned down when in my bag. Even when the ringer is on, I miss a lot if calls. I guess I'm not a phablet person. A 4.7" or 5" screen would have been a better choice.

Groover1971 says:

You picked the largest Windows Phone ever made and you complained because it was too big and heavy? You can't hear it because its in your bag?

heat 33330 says:

I'd prefer if the back was the lighter of the two and the honeycomb pattern removed. It'd be a nice enough looking phone then. Doesn't compete with a Nokia IMO and I'm going to stick to Nokia.

Sam Sabri says:

The honeycomb pattern on the front looks weird. 

Ecurb87 says:

Honeycomb pattern turns me off also.

Sin Ogaris says:

Personally I like the honeycomb pattern, although without seeing it to in person it may be a bit jarring in real world use.

The darker back is definitely nicer, but I've always liked more colour (I know) in my phones so that makes sense.

minimejer05 says:

Darker for sure.

rubenbest says:

I like the nokia side

rodneyej says:

I'm just gonna start calling it Lumia.. It's time for us to move on, and get Nokia out of our heads... But yes,, after having a 920, and 1520, it's gonna take a really good phone to take me away from Lumia devices... It's just not likely anytime soon... I hope I stand to be corrected❕❕

2tomtom says:

Would agree. Currently waiting for the updated version of the 920 as I love the design sooo much, guess I'll wait for the 930.

 

Camera button, wireless charging and that beautiful design has me sold. Want more of the same but better specs. Out of contract and waiting....

b23h says:

hilarious!

+920

rodneyej says:

Shouldn't Samsung be giving us something based on the GS5,, not the old GS4❔
...........................
Why are Samsung's WP devices so boring time, after time.......... Rhetorical...

K0Zeus says:

Do you really want that awful gs5 look?

rodneyej says:

All of Samsung phones look like crap, so looks aren't even a question... But, what's on the inside of the GS5 is slightly better than the older GS4 so it would be nice for Samsung to use current hardware...

The GS5 is almost exactly the same specs wise as the GS4. GS4 had Snapdragon 600.
GS5 is Snapdragon 800. They both have a 1080p display.
If this has Snapdragon 800(guaranteed), 1080p display(guaranteed) and a 16MP camera(not sure). Then this is a GS5 in another body. A way sexier body that is ruined by Verizon. Hope for an international version.

rodneyej says:

The GS5 is SD801!... It's got better performance, and battery life.. Not huge, but WP is worthy of the best that Samsung has to offer, not just almost as good...

donbreathe says:

I think you meant to say SD805 (Snapdragon 805) plus it has fingerprint scanner and a heart beat sensor just below the camera module at the back. At least, we have another good option in Windows Phone family but I'll wait for Nokia....Goldfinger or Martini all the way!

Nope, SD801. Look it up, minor boost.

rodneyej says:

No, from my understanding the Samsung Galaxy S 5 has a SD801❕.. It doesn't have the 805... 805 devices won't be around till summer.

NINJA PLZ says:

luke, I am your father. Join me and together we can rule the galaxy!

Leaf81 says:

That was great

You win the internet sir.

Jazmac says:

I dig the black. They are both cool to me. I like Sammy

lesd777 says:

Agree. Say what you want, but Samsung makes solid phones. Miss my old SII Skyrocket.

Neo Nuke says:

I like that Sammy gives you an SD slot, but with WP 8.1 OS giving so much power to SD card storage, I highly doubt Nokia (Microsoft) will leave it out of their high end devices. That makes me want to hold out for a device with premium feel, specs, and maybe that dedicated camera button I've learned to like so much.

irsyadhhs says:

Alumunium-like. 925 has a real. Sung, when?

rodneyej says:

I just don't really care for how Samsung does any of their devices.. I hate to say it, but they just suck... Ok, I said it. What?❔

What's your reasoning for saying they suck? Because everyone else around here says it?

rodneyej says:

Let me elaborate.. Samsung devices don't entirely suck... The hardware inside is good, and Samsung does try to put a lot of innovative features in each new device, well at least on there Android versions... It's the design of the device that sucks.. Flimsy, super thin cheap feeling battery covers, old, typical candy bar, rounded corner devices.. It is just to "last decade" looking.... So, if the WP versions don't get the cool new innovative hardware features inside, and they look, and feel like a GS2 on the outside, with a fraction of the support that Lumia devices get,,,,, then compared to Lumia devices I'll back track and say yes they do relatively suck... They offer nothing that Lumia devices don't, they have worse design, and barely any support.....
............................
Lets keep in mind that I WAS a longtime Samsung fan since 2013, owning 4 devices over ten years with my last Samsung device being a Samsung Focus.... Even a hardcore Samsung/WP fan has to admit that it's stupid not to buy a Nokia device if you want WP.... Now, I'm taking into consideration availability, and price, so I understand reasonably why some won't be able to choose a Lumia device....

Karthik Naik says:

yeah samsung sorta lost it after the GS2 era, their designs started going downhill

my friends still have gs2s and they are the last samsung devices which lasted that long(one of them had an s3 and the other an s4 and ironically both developed problems very fast)

 

theefman says:

I'd prefer if they would actually take the time to design a new handset instead of taking recycled designs to new levels.

But this looks way better than a Galaxy device. It only looks similar to a Ativ S

rodneyej says:

What❔... How?

Mark Richey says:

Waiting to see what Nokia brings to the table. But even without the MicroSD the Icon is enticing. Love my 920 and the Nokia apps seal the deal.

rodneyej says:

Can't beat Nokia apps on WP.. Can't wait till April 2nd!!!!

Grizlyadams says:

That's what I call a slow news day . . . an announcement that a phone manufacturer may have made the back of their phone a darker shade of grey.

I'm not sure what pisses me,of more; that fact that this made a not inconsiderable word count story, or the fact that I'm commenting on it.

#ffs #seriously

ArthJar says:

"Don't like it, don't read it"
#ffs #srsly #hashtagonwpcentral

JoRdaNeK says:

This is the best resource for WP news, i hate reading about the colour of plastic......but i just did :(

Grizlyadams says:

Chicken and egg; how do you know if you don't like it without reading it? And yes #HTs work anywhere.

Twice Born says:

It's better than it being a whiter shade of pale... ;)

busyman96 says:

It's Saturday... It's better than "Forum user X would like to switch. Help him out" filler stories.

Dk92 says:

I think it looks great.

cruisezero says:

Interesting!! There is no dedicated camera button.

jgbstetson says:

Is this a 4G lte phone?

JoRdaNeK says:

Whatever the s4 was, this will be very similar

Nope. Edge/2G only.

DavidinCT says:

Incorrect, if this is a new Verizon phone, it WILL be a LTE/4G phone. Verizon would not carry it unless it was.

jgbstetson says:

OK, good, because I couldn't tell.  Lucky Verizon wrote it all over the back of the phone so we don't forget.

Grizlyadams says:

That's what I call a slow news day . . . an announcement that a phone manufacturer may have made the back of their phone a darker shade of grey.
I'm not sure what pisses me off more; the fact that this made a not inconsiderable word count story, or the fact that I'm .commenting on it.,
#ffs #seriously

Sin Ogaris says:

More importantly, your computer seemed to think it was important enough for you to comment twice on it.

Grizlyadams says:

That will be my Samsung ATIV S posting it twice ;D

Oh, the irony.

It looks like a Samsung galaxy noooo very lame, they need to come out with a modern design

I like the darker shade, but I'm still buying a Lumia.

BURNNER says:

Whoopdie fukn doo, F** Samsung (Team Lum all day) bro

dertdog says:

Love my ICON!! Gonna take alot to pri this out my hands...

weetigo says:

I'd get this provided it was 1080p and over 5".

redtidal says:

Really, all missing the lack of dedicated Camera Button?

Please let this come to the UK!

gdinger says:

Still love my 1020 and can't wait to rock 8.1 on it

LTTG says:

Doesn't look bad...

rodneyej says:

Doesn't look that great either... It's middle of the road, and middle of the road is boring..

k0de says:

I am saving up for the NL Icon. I held the device on my hands the other day at Verizon. It is a remarkable piece of a device and software.. I must have it. I'm skipping.

Westoncreg says:

Heck I really like my 1520 but if HTC would make a one max with wp8 on it that would be a kingly device

rodneyej says:

Oh man, a Experia Z2 Ultra running WP8.1❕❕❕... That would be awesome!❕

Novron says:

One Max? That thing is four legs shy of being a table.

aitt says:

It's 5.9 inch screen.  1520 is 6.  That would make the 1520 a conference table.

rodneyej says:

The Z ultra is a massive 6.44""❕❕❕.. And, it's not only big,, it's gorgeous!.. Just look at it.. We need Sony to make WP devices!

Warbler says:

So pretty, it's a shame that Samsung doesn't support WP properly

aitt says:

Sigh not this again.

I can't think of a single Nokia Lumia that doesn't look a billion times better than this...

cannon#WP says:

I can, all except for the 925 because they all look like a Nokia that came before them.

Micah Dawson says:

And they still look better than this mess.

Karthik Naik says:

atleast the design is good and slightly different unlike samesung devices

aitt says:

So you honestly think the 520, 820, actually looks better than this? Or do you just have some hatred for a company that you judge with it without seeing it in person.  The same everyone on here tried to say how ugly the 925 was and it was a HTC knockoff or that the Icon was boxy and ugly.  My how quickly people forget past post on here.

Micah Dawson says:

I used to use Samsung products. Yes the 520 and 820 look better than this mess. Its not an ugly phone. But I prefer Nokia looks.

aitt says:

lol ok. You used to use and never seen this but it looks better than the 520 and 820 plasticware thick bezel design. But we all know your story so I wouldnt expect a non biased answer.

Winnabe says:

Anybody who doesn't think the 520 is not the cutest small screen phone out there really needs his cranium to be split open and a look into his brain done to see where his/her sense of aesthetics has gone amiss. Didn't know there were Samsung fanbois who thought Samsung designs were even good, leave alone better than Lumia ones. Lol.

aitt says:

Okay first off there's no Fanboy here. So get the ignorance out your lips. I own three Nokia devices. The fact that you even called the 520 "cute" needs no other response from me and explains everything.

Karthik Naik says:

@winnabe exactly,i have two 720s and an 820 and the 520 still looks delicious coz of the pricetag and features,design etc despite it sharing its design with my 720s

rodneyej says:

Every Lumia device looks better than this,,,, and I used to be a hard core Samsung fan before Nokia came along with Lumia devices...

Kram Sacul says:

You're crazy if you think the 520 or the 820 are even remotely ugly.  They're stylish customizable devices with personality. This is just another Samsung phone.  Grey.

aitt says:

I means its amazing people talk about ugly plastic and fail to admit that's what the majority of Lumia are. And there's nothing stylish about those two phone. They're two plastic blocks with bezel thicker than LeBron James forehead

Winnabe says:

Texture and the way it looks on the eye. Oh wait, I'm talking to someone who's sense of aesthetics got robbed before he even acquired any of his senses.

aitt says:

I think it funny that my opinion is hated by your stupidity cause I don't agree with you.  Sorry to bust your bubble wannabe but not everthing that Nokia make is absolute "cute".Oh I'm sorry cutest. No man should ever say that by the way. But you can continue on the insult attempt.  It's rather lackluster and ignorant for you to comprehend opinion. 

Winnabe says:

Ok, then, we shall agree to disagree. Apologies for my attempts at 'insult' - it wasn't meant to be malicious, though.

aitt says:

Fair enough.  No harm done.  Like wise to you as well. The main thing to always remember is we all want to see success with WP. The internal attacks just makes not only WP look so seperated, but our community as well.  At the end of the day opinions are just that, but we need this phone and we need more OEM on board to better compete and increase market share.

Winnabe says:

Now, couldn't agree more to that. Cheers.

cannon#WP says:

Is there anyway non-constructive Nokia fanboy comments can be removed? Sheesh... On topic, I like the darker shade, hate that this will be a VZ exclusive. I can only hope that means AT&T will get a slightly more up to date ATIV...maybe even an ATIV 2. My contract is up in July so I'm holding out hope for that.

Surely they will Samsung isn't one to limit themselves to one carrier for any phone...

Micah Dawson says:

Seeing as they did limit themselves to one carrier for their windows phones, yes Samsung does.

sheldonch says:

I like this look better than the GS5s, I dont really care for the dimples on those.

topleya says:

Loss of camera button is deal breaker for me

mango.lover says:

50 Shades of Samsung

DavidinCT says:

Come on 5" display and MicroSD with 32gb on board....It will be MY phone, screw Nokia....

Karthik Naik says:

*must not correct* *must refrain from commenting* *must not prove wrong*

Seribble2013 says:

Had my Icon for 2 weeks now....great phone....only downside is no SD card, but with 32gig internal I'm over it....took my 32gig SD from my 810 and put in my 64gig surface....and 150gig onedrive....got space all over the place!

NIST says:

Still uninspired.

12Danny123 says:

Looks very nice. Looove the metallic like look

Devmer11 says:

Samesung... Had to say it

Love my Nokia 928 and am looking to eventually upgrade to the Icon, unless this or possibly the upcoming Sony Vaio phone convinces me otherwise. I really wish Nokia would put SD card slots in their phones!!!

aitt says:

Sony sold the Vaio name

Smort says:

Um . . . the 1520 has an SD card slot.

Karthik Naik says:

yeah only a handful like the 1020 and 92x  series dont have sd slots

JoRdaNeK says:

They both look alright, but that's the thing!! Samsung could bring out a seriously decent phone, but it's as if they are just testing the water, even though i have 3 Lumias, i urge everyone that either hates Nokia fanboys like myself or even if you are just interested in this phone to buy it! It can only be good for Windows Phone aswell as your phone experience

aitt says:

I dont hate em. Just wish they would let their throat breathe a little more.

JoRdaNeK says:

I understand, but it's hard to love any other OEM as they don't seem to love us (WP) :P

Karthik Naik says:

a way of looking at the next ativ is that android/samsung fanboys will get one seeing the similiarities to its android brothers

sheldonch says:

It's funny how people complain about Samsung having phones that "look the same" but the moment a Nokia phone doesn't look like their current phone they go crazy.  Like the Lumia Icon for example.  Companies just have their own signature style, if they made wildly different looking stuff each time, they wouldn't have their own style and it wouldn't be recognizable in the ocean of smartphones on the market.

tbonenga says:

Like it or not I guarantee it'll sell more than the Icon on Verizon. Very few android users would hop on a phone without a SD slot. Whether you need it or not. The perception is if you don't have a SD slot it's inferior. Exactly why HTC put it on the new One.

3165dwayne says:

no perception issues here. if most phones had 64 gb or higher, i wouldnt care about the sd slot. i like using flac files on my phones or at least 320kbps files. My commutes to school take some time and I like enjoying my music library on the trips. sometimes i also like packing a movie or some videos related to a lesson. i will never solely rely on streaming as there are far too many compromises or unforseen problems such as the network might be down, slow or spotty, it drains the battery faster, and no one is telling me that any mobile music streaming service can be comparable to FLAC. As you can see, there are no perception issues here. Our needs or rather wants, are clearly different. When a phone has an SD slot the user is presented with the choice to use this slot as opposed to if the phone does not have one which then takes away said choice. Peopke really need to try and understand others instead of trying to force their own beliefs upon others.

RJ Priest says:

As an ATIV S owner, this should be a great device. The ATIV S is a quality built, with beautiful display, removable battery (for those who want removable), and excellent battery life. I love my phone, but I do want to switch to Lumia for the camera. If the manual Nokia camera isn't important to you, try an ATIV. I highly recommend it. The SE should be an excellent device.

I like the darker shade. I'm betting the next ATIV will look like the S5, this one looks like the S4, while the current ATIV S I have looks like the S3.

steve_w_7 says:

Samsung design is so uninspiring. I would much rather have an HTC One variant, but I'm going with Nokia.

DavidinCT says:

+1 that HTC One is a nice looking phone...

scdkad says:

Suppose someone with a GS3/4 wants to go WP and would like the same design phone? This fits the bill.

Votshtoy says:

The whole thing looks gross to me if I'm honest

wtma says:

Maybe it's just me but I find that rounded corners Samsung phones have since GS3 are horrible. Makes me go "ewww" everytime.

The darker shade seems reminiscent of the ATIV S. As for this part of the article:

Or would your rather skip this Samsung device altogether and wait for something from Nokia

I don't get it. Verizon users already have the Icon available which is the best Windows Phone that they currently offer, so what would people be waiting for if they don't want the ATIV SE? 

ProFilmLA says:

I'm happy Samsung is jumping in...looks great. Even without SD...I have a love affair with Nokia. Proud 925 owner!

iinnnnit says:

The Verizon logo under the headphone looks weird

Ayush_WP says:

No camera button, no buy. Kthkxbye

cheyne young says:

I still couldn't see myself parting with my 920. Ram and processor upgrades to this OS past the current specs its rockin seem pretty redundant. Zero lag. Camera great for a phone. Zero lag. Runs all apps. Screen fantastic. Just can't justify dropping hundreds for something I already got. Maybe when there aren't anymore os upgrades coming I may consider. I will never swing samsungs way though as Nokia is killin it with their own exclusive apps.

Karthik Naik says:

yeah nokia has the best hardware,build quality,camera etc as well as their exclusive apps

TJWINS says:

It is inconceivable for me to carry anything other than a Nokia WP

I'm waiting to see what the Nokia 'Goldfinger' will be like!

RedVagabond says:

I think the tint of the back of the phone was literally the least problematic part of this phone's design.  I would pass this phone up for another OS if that's all I could choose from.  Jesus that thing is ugly.

Winnabe says:

Somehow Samsung's WP designs look miles & furlongs better than any of their Android offerings. Having a hard time to tell which one I would prefer though- maybe the lighter shade. Hmm.

booog89 says:

I think Samsung should manufacture 3 colours instead. It will be boring for customers not having the excitement to choose which colour to buy. Agree? Since their specs are great and OS has just got better...then this is when colours comes :) But still I'm gonna wait for Nokia surprise hehe! :D

No interest in Samsung whatsoever. Little support for Windows Phone was a pain in the ass when I had my Focus S.

For real? I always perceived them to be all in back in the WP7 days. They were top dog in my eyes before Nokia came along. The original Focus is still one of my all time favs. Loved that phone.

Exactly it's complete ignorance with the no support idiocy. They have supported, even if it's one device, WP from the jump and still willing to put out a device. People on here sometimes...

no hes from the wp7 era and alot of wp7 phones had support issues and no promised updates etc

wp8 is a much improved scene though and im sure all wp8.1/wp8 devices will always have awesome support like the past year!!

Any shade of aluminium is ok. Plastic that tries to be aluminium looks disgusting.

Ugly, no camera button, no Nokia exclusives - moving on.

I don't think I'll ever consider buying anything from Samsung again. Looks like they expect people to carry with them ALL of the accessories for their stuff, like docking stations...

After that stupid video I'll just choose something in the store from other manufacturers!

I wonder why Samsung's WPs look much better than their droid counterparts.

Still ugly....

Please ship an international version of the ATIV SE as soon as possible! I'd like to replace my ATIV S with LTE-enabled device.

Korvmos says:

Looks aaaaalot like my Ativ S :P

My dream phone would be this, but with Camera Button and 41mpx Camera like the 1020.

I'm very satisfied with my 920. The Samsung ATIV S was the first Samsung phone I ever considered when it was announced and if I had the cash I could buy this if/when available off contract in Sweden. I require a phone with a 5"+ screen and SD slot to get a new main phone thou. Preferably a Lumia ;)
