Samsung ATIV S Neo is a little outdated phone launched back in the year 2013, packing a powerful Dual-Core processing unit speeding at 1.4 gigahertz, a good size 4.8 inches multi-touch screen, an 8 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front camera.

Samsung decided to power this phone with a fast Dual-Core CPU running at 1.4 GHz, packed into a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8930AA system chip and 1 GB RAM memory. To help with graphic calculations, it also counts with an Adreno 305 GPU ticking at 450 MHz. This cellphone counts with a good 16 GB internal memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, allowing you to install a couple hundred apps and games without worrying about space.

This phone is quite a compact phone, taking into account that it has a 4.8" screen and it is only 5.33" long. The Samsung ATIV S Neo has a gorgeous design, with a thickness of just 0.36 inches. Samsung made an excellent job making this device weight only 5.04 ounces.

Samsung equipped this phone with a great 4.8" screen, and a resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD), which makes everything look perfect. This screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This device provides wi-fi capability (but it can't share it with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high speed connection type or the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a SIM card to use GSM services and it can connect to both GSM and CDMA networks.

This phone features two cameras, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front camera. It also shoots videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. The camera also includes a few good characteristics: auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This cellphone also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS Localization and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

The Samsung ATIV S Neo features a mid capacity 2000 mAh Li-Ion battery that provides this phone a not very long battery life. This phone has an aproximate 9 hours talk time and a 420 hs stand by time.

The Samsung ATIV S Neo costs around $ 249, quite the same as other same level phones. The Samsung ATIV S Neo is a great option no matter if you will use it mostly for internet broswing and social networks, will use it for gaming or will use it for work.
