Description

The Samsung ATIV Odyssey will support LTE, but it will also be a global ready smartphone. The handset will be 4.82-inches high, 2.51-inches wide and 0.43-inches thick. With a slightly larger battery at 2,100mAh, and a smaller 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, the ATIV Odyssey will weigh less than its counterparts at 4.41 ounces. The main camera is 5MP, will be able to shoot 1080p video and the front facing camera is 1.2MP which will be able to record 720p video. Power is managed by the same 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor found in the other Windows Phone 8 devices sold in the US. On board there is 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, plus the aforementioned microSD expansion. Samsung will have some of its own apps on the Odyssey, Now, Mini Diary and Photo Editor. NFC is supported, but wireless charging will not be available.

This device is also known as Samsung SCH-I930

WORST phone I have ever owned in 12 years !
Phone owned for more than a year

Phone randomly dials people in the middle of the night - it can't be updated without shutting down and not rebooting. The list is endless. THE ONLY thing that worked was the camera - I can buy a GREAT Nikon for less than sending the phone back to Verizon. I spent at least 3 x a week at the store and they took FIVE phones back sending me new ones (that did the same thing). You would *think* ONE of them would work correctly. *None* were "refurbished' - all were new !

Great Phone
Phone owned for less than a year

Great phone overall but missing some little features. The UI is snappy and intuitive, pictures are decent but not amazing. Calls are very clear. Little things are missing such as being able to use your own ringtones for SMSs or assign an SMS ringtone to a contact. Also there's no way to see the battery charge left at the top of the phone until it shows up at 50% or less. Lastly you have to continue hitting the back button to close apps instead of being able to close an app from inside that app or from a task manager. Overall I enjoy this phone more than my previous Android and I look forward to some of the issues with it being resolved with Windows Phone 8.1.
