Captivate for ATT (SGS1) had aluminum battery cover.

Primary reason for not using aluminum is reception.

Oh, I never knew that. I knew Samsung put aluminum on their Bada devices, but didn't know about the Captivate.

earlier leaks suggested a Nokia Lumia 1001 right? i hope they don't name it the 920 and i hope the design doesn't stay redundant.

Lumia designs look too alike already. just like the iPhone. it's beautiful, but too common somehow. it needs to standout among the other lumias.

if the pricing is the same, then I'd get the lumia only because of the better camera and all.

I guess sales will only show, which one the consumers prefer. Some people still think Samsung and HTC when it comes to Windows Phone (talking about an average consumer, not Phonearenians). The likes of Focus and Omnia. Just saying. I could be wrong.

Nokia will have a huge boost given it from the 900's push which got it front and center among not only WP's, but Smartphones in general. Even if some call it disappointing, fact is the name recognition was truly an investment for Nokia. I expect their devices to really take off. No doubt they will be the best selling WP devices. The only questions will be how do they compared to the top end Androids and iPhone, and what comes next during Q2 and Q3 of 2013?

As for me, I voted Samsung's effort. They get first look in my world due to the amazing performance of not only their top end Android efforts (GS2 & GS3), but the flawless and enjoyable Focus series they put out for WP 7. From the original effort in 2010 to the "S", all 4 devices are dependable, rated highly, and had very few problems to talk about. Their ecosystem is growing with some decent exclusives, and they were supported- receiving all updates available. Sure, Nokia gets higher marks in support and exclusives, but I trust Sammy.

It will be Samsung or Nokia for me. HTC lost me with the horrid performance of my Wife's Titan, although the T2 isn't bad.

I'm happy most of you still prefer Nokia when the mobile universe is getting hogged by devices for Android.
To all who think Samsung ATIV has got it all...look at what Nokia did to your "Windows" above your desks...yes, it'll be on your pockets with a brave comeback with a beautiful, though not fresh, shell.
Here's what you can do with Samsung's back cover...remove it, hang it by your door, and hit it with a spoon to make that 'clang' sound whenever you have to call your kids or family members for meal, lol.

Super LCD 2 1280x720 on the 4.3 inch HTC Accord will be the sharpest, brightest and most color accurate display ever been on a smartphone. If its real of course. It would be a One X display with higher PPI.

I really hope Microsoft will have some sort of event in the U.S with all OEM under one roof to show all WP8 devices and which carriers will be getting what devices.

Like, like, like all three! But for me, it comes down to who will support their products after they're released to the market. Based on that, it's Nokia for me!

The Lumia looks to be the least appealing, in terms of specs, but P.A. does not have the full spec sheet on it, so we will see - HTC and Samsung phones look nice, too. Probably would pick the Samsung phone on specs alone, but since I do not buy the phone on just specs alone - I would wait until viewing them at a store, if one carrier did have all models to view.

No offense to Nokia Lumia 820 or 920. They're great looking phones. And probably sports a better camera.

But a Samsung Ativ S would really look cool together with the Ativ Tablet and the Ativ Laptop. I would love to collect these Samsung Windows 8 devices. :)

do you hate samsung? but why you have samsung galaxy note on your pic? well actually the ativ S is really a good looking device... but nokia will be the best and the beast of WP...

this is the main dis advantage of a manufacturers releasing some device ahead from its competition... they wont know the look or how will it impact...

thats why samsung's galaxy series is sued by apple because of this!

Call quality and phone related functions would probably go to Nokia.

I really like Amoled screens right now....so I would like the Ativ. I have yet to see a One X in person so cant comment on that type of screen.

Overall...I just like the look of the Ativ more.
