As far as Windows Phone is concerned, they’re the kings of their respective brands. One is a sculpted polycarbonate nugget of technology with an emphasis on form over function; the other is a comparatively conservative slab of faux metal, bearing the most user-accessible customizability we’ve seen in the premium Windows Phone 8 space.

But will an expandable memory card slot, removable battery, and giant display be enough to put the Samsung ATIV S over the top in the battle with the incumbent heavyweight of the Windows Phone 8 space, the Nokia Lumia 920? Or will its lean custom app selection and unremarkable chassis spell doom for its aspirations to outperform its competition? More potently: are those aspirations real or imagined? How hard is Samsung really trying with the ATIV S?

Join us in the video below for the answers to these and other observations -from the profound to the plain- including benchmarks, sample photos, and much more. And stay tuned for our full review, coming sooner than you think!
