Samsung ATIV S available for £229.99 at Expansys UK

Expansys has dropped the price of the Samsung ATIV S once again, but this time we're looking at just £229.99 for the Windows Phone 8 device. If you're seeking a high-end option as your next smartphone, this is a perfect opportunity to choose a mobile phone with exciting features and areas of expansion.

To recap on what specifications we're talking about, the ATIV S sports a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, dual-core 1.5GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage (with SD slot), 8MP shooter (with 1.9 FFC), NFC and a 2,300mAh battery. Not too bad. Be sure to check out our ATIV S review before purchasing.

  • Got mine off ebay new, and enjoy how thin it is, very responsive and great 4.8" screen. Wish it was on one of the 3 big carriers here in US.
  • Careful in the UK chaps, Expansys ship the EU variant and its playing havoc with my apn settings (Three UK)
  • I've not had any problems with my Orange SIM
  • Yep its just on Three as far as I can tell..
    Their tech support is a joke...
  • Nice
  • I bought mine in Norway for 200£, unlocked. Telenor.no :) (with prepaid card I just removed )
  • Bummer for you then, because now they're selling it for half that, as in £100, yes you heard me correctly, £100 (or NOK999 to be exact), with the same prepaid card (which you can toss if you have any of Telenor's subscriptions already). Best offer ever ...

  • If I purchased this on Ebay, and unlocked it... Could it work on T-Mobile USA?
  • Yea, it should work on both AT&T and T-Mobile, though there is no LTE chip in it.
  • It would work on AT&T and in refarmed areas of T-mobile (1900 band only, not 1700) for HSPA+, but Edge data would work everywhere.
  • There is version that works on T-Mobile (T 889) but it's $689
  • Good question. I want one.
  • Picked this up last week, cant fault it. Finally back on windows phone. I went from hd2, hd7, s2, s3 and now this. Its good to be home.
  • Welcome back ;)
  • How much in US dollars?
  • $349.99

  • Thats a good price unlocked! I would be tempet to just buy a Lumia 920 from EE though, out of contract they are only £260 now.
  • Do it you won't regret it, awesome phone the 920
  • 250€ is my limit for a new phone right now. I'm waiting to price to drop a litle bit more...
    BTW anyone has any problems with it (except for Nokia exclusives)? Or is it perfect? How much time does the battery lasts?
  • Battery lasts long, in two days using it moderatly. Had the Ativ S since january, no bugs, hang ups, battery still as good as new. I recommend it.
  • Ativ s 16gb unlocked is available in Germany for 230€. Check amazon.de marketplace offers.
  • And full suite of Nokia apps
  • Man, if this worked on Verizon LTE and CDMA, I would buy it in a heartbeat...Maybe even trade my Lumia 928 for it...
  • Had mine a couple of weeks love it prefer it even over the 920 and 8x I had.
  • gsmnation have the t889 for $499 and it works on tmobile lte
