Samsung ATIV S vs Nokia Lumia 900 vs HTC Titan II: specs comparison
The Samsung ATIV S (here's our detailed specs review) was one of the more exciting new handsets that Samsung announced today at its IFA 2012 press-conference. It is the first official Windows Phone 8 smartphone and as such, it sports specs never before seen in the land of Windows Phone. Windows Phone 8 brings goodies like support for higher-resolution screens, as well as multi-core processors, and while the devices running on the platform won't be the hardware monsters that Android is usually found on, they will still be capable of providing flawless user experience thanks to WP's wise resource management.

With that said, exactly how better is the new ATIV S, compared to some of the best Windows Phones around? Well, we would say that the difference is quite substantial, but of course, we shouldn't forget the fact that while the Samsung ATIV S is a lone Windows Phone 8 handset now, it sure won't be alone on launch day. But until September 5, when Nokia, Microsoft's favorite WP manufacturer, is to unveil its own WP 8 devices, the ATIV S will be the most-anticipated Windows Phone smartphone.
