I may be generalising but it is true. Have seen it with many people as recently had a discussion with friends about something similar. If you are right handed and need to write on a notepad, you would naturally hold a pen with your right hand while holding the pad with your left. If you are right handed and navigating a screen, it is common to hold the phone in your left hand so you can either use your left thumb or free up your right hand to navigate the screen. Again the dominant hand does the work when dealing cards. Deck held in left hand and right hand deals. Not everyone clearly, but most right handed people hold a phone in their left hand.

There is no way to put the buttons in a perfect place because there are left handed people and right handed people! There is always going to be conflict with left & right handed people! 😎ATIV S is LIFE

I'm right handed (as are most people on the planet of course) which means I use my phone in my left hand so my right hand is free. Whether you think its comical or not, the buttons are badly placed. My HTC HD7 had it on the top, much better and more logical, and perfectly simple to do with one hand "unless you suck. Haha"

I am guess you have never used, or owned a Focus/Focus S? These things are perfectly ok with me, as the button positioning is the same, etc.
So your cons are my pros, cant wait for this phone! ;-)
- 02-23-2013, 05:57 PM #42Dude, you really think people are going to trade their $600 phone for your sub-$400 phone straight up? Good luck with that... I could sell my Ativ S locally right now for $550, which would leave me almost $200 after buying the nexus 4 16gb.
Could you sell your Ativ S locally for $550? I doubt it. I bet you could get $500 on Ebay for it, but after fees, Paypal charges, and shipping costs, you're down to about $425 or so.
My Nexus 4, plus tax, plus bumper, was about $365 total. So, yeah, if someone who had an Ativ S said something like "you throw in $50 cash and we'll do a trade", that's reasonable.

The price is agreed upon already. So yeah, I will get $550 locally if I sell it. Somebody without the luxury of a buyer might need to negotiate, but I don't.

The final straw. This piece of sh#t Ativ S has just stopped working. Won't turn on. Initial symptom was the screen displaying a lightening bolt and config wheel (like it had been powered up with the volume key depressed).
Battery is charging, but phone will not switch on. It did boot all the way into Windows Phone once in the last 4 days, but then as soon as the screen went off, it wouldn't come back on.
Typically its whilst I'm away from home for two and a half weeks. I have no love left for this device. Once repaired/replaced its going.
If I could walk into Mobile World Congress in Barcelona tomorrow and buy an unlocked Nokia Lumia 920 I would.

I love my Ativ S. It works, that I like. Samsung might be quiet about it to protect its S3.*** Forza Windows Phone 8 ***

Mine's working again after having the system board replaced. I can live with the buttons, as irritating as they are. the thing that remains a major irritation is the lack of audio controls. I just don't get it. And god knows the audio needs a bit of boosting.
