2. Samsung ATIV S

Stealing a march on Nokia, HTC and company the ATIV S is Samsung's first handset to run on Windows Phone 8. Previously leaked as the Odyssey, the ATIV S is just 8.7mm thick and features an aluminum chassis which hosts a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with Corning Glass 2 to make it tough to break. Running on a 1.5GHz dualcore processor, there’s an 8-Megapixel rear-facing camera and 1.9-Megapixel front facing one with MicroSD card support to expand on the 16GB or 32GB internal storage.
