Samsung ATIV Odyssey - 4G LTE
The Samsung ATIV Odyssey may be priced lower than some of its Samsung smartphone counterparts, but that doesn't mean it is any less capable or impressive. While smartphones seem to be getting bigger and bigger, the ATIV Odyssey keeps a smaller shape, make it more comfortable to hold to your ear during a call.
The screen is small enough that you can easily text or browse the web with the hand you're using to hold the Verizon phone - very useful for those who prefer to multitask. Its 800 x 480 resolution provides all the clarity you need for a smaller screen.
The phone's 8 GB of internal storage may seem small to those who love to take pictures and download music on their phone, but the Odyssey has provided a solution. On the left side of the phone, you'll find a microSD card slot. Buy a microSD card with the amount of storage you need, and you'll be without your favorite music again.
The ATIV Odyssey comes with a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. Take photos and share them instantly with friends! As with most mobile phone cameras, this works best outdoors so it can take advantage of natural lighting. The Odyssey also has a high quality front-facing camera you can use for video chatting - no grainy images or poor coloring, your friends can see you just as you are.
The Windows Phone 8 operation system comes pre-loaded with great Windows-based apps like OneNote, Maps, and Office at no cost to you. Samsung has added on a few of their own apps as well: a simple note-taking application called Mini Diary, a Live Wallpaper app to change up the wallpaper of your lock screen, and Now, which provides up-to-date information on weather, news, and the stock market. These are just the ones that come with the phone. If you want more, you can shop for third-party apps in the Windows Store and find everything you need to complete your phone.
The biggest highlights of the Odyssey, however, are its internal hardware and its battery. The phone's speed matches that of pricier smartphones, with a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor - the exact same chip used in some of the most powerful smartphones on the market. It does its job perfectly, creating a smoother, faster user experience. The phone's battery life will blow you away. It can sustain itself for nearly 12 hours of constant, heavy use without needing a charge. If you're not using it to watch videos and stream music every day, you might even be able to go several days without having to charge it. This just confirms that the ATIV Odyssey is a quality smartphone for anyone who wants something simple to use but with all the features they need.
