Summary: I'm using this phone for almost 6 months now, and I absolutely adore it. It's sleek, fast and packs more features and functionality than a swiss-army knife; 8MP Camera, 720P video recording (world's first ever), AMOLED 3.7 capacitive screen and 16GB of internal memory.
Summary: about the 400$ one, go to your local dealer like t-mobile or verizon, etc. the one i went to was a t-mobile store in union square. i spoke with the guy behind the counter if they have a samsung omnia hd and they said yeah.
Pros: look this is for you if you: 1) understand english 2) prefer the touch screen interface 3) prefer touch screen to a keyboard 4) LOVE taking videos 5) LOVE taking pictures 6) LOVE a huge screen for your web 7) into music because of the huge screen its basically a top of the line media player
Cons: its just that... it looks kind of plain and guess what, this phone does even come close to JAPANESE PHONES (go to canadajphones or echigoya-honpo)
Summary: Bottom line, phone is great but its not for everyone, i thought many times of exchanging or selling but then realized its still the best phone in the market for what it has, but you have to keep a lookout on forums for new firmwares.
Pros: This phone is awesome but takes sometime to get use to, Uploading feature to youtube, facebook etc is great, Screen is as good as iphone almost, believe me i have had many phones. And alot more good stuff about the phone that i cant remember at the moment. Great Screen Fast Navigation Work on At&...
Cons: 1: Price, its the most expensive phone on newegg, price should be around $500 so more people can afford it. 2nd: Symbian is better suited for nokia's, because for me its too complicated you have to click on too many menus to do anything, and samsung cant really support this OS as good as Nokia, y...
Excerpt: I own this phone since a week. I like it, it worth its price, camera is the top on market. Many amazing features you already know. Cons? Battery. I can't figure out how it got 10/10 here, I hardly come to the end of the day with a full charged battery.
Pros: Amazing display, Good camera and videos, Fast software, Very responsive touch screen
Cons: Very poor battery life, Browser not very usable, Recorded audio on videos is poor, Maybe Symbian is not the best OS you can get: lack of apps, No multitouch
Excerpt: Two months after buying this phone I had it stolen during a music gig....and I was gutted! After reporting the theft to our home contents insurance providers they informed me that they couldn't replace the phone as Orange had an exclusivity contract for that phone so they gave me the £500 to replace...
Excerpt: I have owned this phone for almost a year now on contract with orange. It's probably a little fiddly to use if you haven't had a full touch screen phone before. However after a little practice the phone becomes quick and easy to use.
Samsung's i8910 is more than just a pretty screen...

Excerpt: I've been using the i8910 for around 6 months now, on Orange. I have to say, I'm generally extremely pleased with the phone. The screen is large, responsive and vibrant and the stereo sound, even from the tiny speakers on either end of the phone, is actually pretty good.
Fantastic smartphone which ticked all the boxes way before other brands, but not for shallow pockets

Excerpt: After seraching high and low for a new smartphone, I was drawn to this as an industry leader at the time. At the time of purchase it really was top of the pile in terms of features and functionality.
