Samsung ATIV Odyssey

  |   by NotebookReview Staff

This is a mid-range smartphone available exclusively from Verizon. The specs include a modest 4-inch 800 x 480 (WVGA) display. It runs Windows Phone 8 on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, with 8GB of onboard storage, but no microSD card slot. It has a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. That’s not to say the ATIV Odyssey is completely underpowered. Unlike many Verizon handsets, it is a woldphone that can connect to the GSM wireless networks in 220 countries. And while in the U.S., it can access Big Red’s 4G LTE network.

  • Pros

    • Good performance
    • Solid battery life
  • Cons

    • Completely uninspired design
    • Terrible display
    • Poor camera

Quick Take

The Samsung ATIV Odyssey may be a boring phone, but at least it's cheap and offers respectable performance.
