Yo, huge dilemma. Please help.
When wp8 devices started to be revealed I sorted through the new devices presented. Subsequently I started eliminating unacceptable devices.
- 920 - Nah I want more memory than I already have
- htc 8x & htc 8s - prematurely eliminated on looks alone. (although seeing 8s in person and holding it gave way better impression)
- 820 - good but I feel I have something better in mind
- Samsung Ativ S - Booyah! There you go. Decision made
Now just wait til att starts pre-orders. Buuuuuuuut this might take awhile. So I start checking out the already available 820 (specs below), And I'm like "Okay, I'm being swayed." Out of all the things I was looking for its missing one thing. More memory than my Focus+sd card. To tell you the truth though I can live with out the memory. I just want it, BAD.
So you wanna help me out. Convince me for or against this device so I can live in bliss now with no regrets, get 820, or wait for a better option, get ativ s.

If you can get the Nokia Lumia 820, get it. Unfortunately, I cannot get the Lumia 820 on my carrier (Three)... So I'm going to HAVE to wait for the Ativ S... But I would have preferred the Lumia.

As others have stated the Sammy device may be hard to get a hold of in the US. Given they are in no hurry to get that device to market Sammy may be loosing interest in WP. That is no reason not to get a ATIV S however. Its a powerhouse device for sure.
I would have to recommend getting the 820. Though I hear ppl are having issue with the SD cards in the 82x devices you can count on the issue being fixed by Nokia. Should the Sammy device have a similar issue it may, or may not get fixed.

As the OP has a;ready said he would get the 820, at this point I feel as though I am just piling on. But as a Samsung Focus S user, I was truly torn. I loved the way the ATIV looked, love my Focus S, and wanted to see all WP manufacturers do well. I was very sold on the ATIV S, and was excited.
But, all the support Nokia has given it's WP 7 Lumia line got my attention. The way they are building not just a device but an ecosystem- their own apps and games as well as their tools and mapping. They way they handled all the updates and firmware to their 900 when it had problems. Heck, they are still supporting and updating their Symbian devices, even if it is through a third party. It is still on Nokia's dime and at their direction.
They swayed me. There is very little reason to not get a Nokia. Like I said, this is from a Samsung fan. I would trust a Samsung device to work from day one out of the box on. But Nokia is just serious about their WP 8 efforts. They NEED this to work- not want. They HAVE to have it work. They will support it.
I am no hurry to get a new device. But when I do- it will be a Nokia. It is no longer even a decision for me."Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."- Ben Franklin.

I'd take nokia over samsung everytime -> their top notch phones might be good, but only those. They do not put much effort into wp phones right now so I wouldnt be surprised if it had crap quality like low and medium price range phones of ****sung.
