Review: Samsung ATIV S Neo for Sprint
Samsung did a very good job in designing and manufacturing the ATIV S Neo. It's an attractive piece of hardware that is comfortable to use and functions just as it should. The screen is particularly nice, battery life is quite good, and phone calls made through the earpiece sound divine. It's a shame the speakerphone is so crummy, though.
The WP8 operating system may not be for everyone, but it works flawlessly on the Neo. Apps are quick to load and Neo offers all the goodies we've come to expect from our smartphones, including email and advanced messaging, access to apps and media content, and plenty of extras.
For Sprint customers, the only other WP8 option is the HTC 8XT. The Samsung ATIV S Neo is clearly superior to the 8XT in my opinion, and I'd suggest you give it serious consideration.

Samsung's second foldable phone takes a different approach: instead of folding larger, it folds smaller, much like Motorola's new razr foldable. It's cheap for a foldable, but still quite pricey.
